If you put in the time and effort to plan a home move ahead of time it will be that much easier in the lead up to the big day. You can avoid any unnecessary stress in the process of moving when you are able to rely on the professionals and the many services they offer. Here are some of the important aspects to consider when getting ready for the home remove:
Label the boxes and make lists
A simple step that can be taken in the move process is to record what is kept in each container or box using a labeling system which will make it so much easier to identify where the boxes should go in the new home. If you have a clearer idea of the contents of the boxes you will know which ones contain the more essential items that need to be unpacked in the early stages of arriving at the new destination.
If you want to make transportation the belongings as simple as possible for the movers, you want to avoid over-filling the cartons and boxes which could make it very difficult to lift. Apart from being difficult to handle, an overfilled box is more likely to break or fall apart under the strain. And similar to over-filling the boxes, you also want to avoid having boxes that are under filled since these boxes could collapse if other items are placed on top.
Use high-quality packing materials
In order to avoid breakage in transit you want to make sure that a quality selection of packing materials are used like strong boxes, cartons, bubble wrap, tissue paper, peanuts, adhesive tape, blankets, string, etc.
It will certainly benefit if you are able to make sure that the main appliances like the washing machine, freezers, and fridges are disconnected and drained of water ahead of time so that they are ready to be moved.
Garden equipment and tools
If you have any large-sized petrol driven garden machinery or tools, such as the lawnmower, you want to make sure that these types of items are drained of fuel and cleaned prior to being moved.
Flat Pack furniture
It is often noticed that certain items of flat pack or self-assembly furniture does not travel that well and it will likely benefit if it is dismantled prior to moving. By taking this action you also make it easier to transport these items of furniture.
