No stress, no headaches, relocate like a pro. Many people experience bouts of stress when moving day approaches. They look around their home and see that a million and one things still haven’t made their way into boxes, they’re uncertain about when the moving company is coming, haven’t managed to find someone to take care of the kids on the big day, the list goes on and on. However, moving doesn’t have to be all stressful. As with anything in life, when the proper organizational skills are applied, and time management is put in place, ease will be the result.
The first thing you’ll need to do:
Hire a moving company. This should always be your first step when it comes to preparing for your move. Of course, you won’t just want to hire anyone to transport your most valuable possessions. As a result, it is essential that you do your research. Find out which companies are available in your area, find out their prices, their services, compare, contrast and come to a decision.
Why you’ll need a moving company:
The main reason you’ll need a moving company is that you can’t do it all by yourself. The other reason is that when you’ve got valuables in your home, your main priority should be keeping them in one piece during your move. Moving companies have professional, trained staff know the tricks on packing, lifting and transporting safely. Putting your valuables is trusted hands, will give you peace of mind and allow you to focus on the other things that need to be taken care of.
The next thing you’ll need to do is get out your planner or buy one.
Organization takes planning, and having something written down on paper is a lot better than relying on your memory, especially in a time when you’ve got a lot going on. Your planner will be used to keep track of deadlines, as well as help you to remember what needs to be done, and organize your time better. Look at your planner every day, check off the things you’ve taken care of and add anything else that comes to mind.
Once you’ve hired your moving company and have your planner on hand, you’ll need your packing supplies.
These items include:
- A pair of scissors
- A roll of tape
- Boxes of various sizes
- A black permanent market
- Bubble wrap
How and when to start packing:
The ideal time to start packing for a move is as soon as possible. This doesn’t mean that you’ll have to leave your closet bare and only wear the clothes that you have on your back. You’ll want to start with getting rid of all the things that you won’t be transporting to your new home. This may involve piles of paper, old clothing, shoes that haven’t seen the world in years, and broken furniture that you’ve tucked away in the garage.
When to pack everything else:
When the day of the move is only a few weeks away, you may want to start considering boxing up the items that you can do without for those few weeks. Remember to label all your boxes so that your movers know where to put them once they have transported them to your new home.
