When a move is imminent, there are certain plans you need to make. It can be difficult to get everything done, especially when you are managing a family and continuing to work while you are in the midst of all of your moving preparations. But, by staying organized, the move can be a lot easier. Here are some tips to help you along the way.
First, pick a good Mover. This is important as a first step because it will help you with your packing. Moving companies can help you with supplies, offer packing services themselves, and provide you with a list of the items they cannot move, either because of company policy or because of the law.
Next, go through your attic, garage and basement first. These areas are where items are often forgotten. It is also where a lot of the junk you no longer want or need gets stored. Rent a dumpster and eliminate these unwanted items. You will save yourself time because you will not have to pack them and money because the movers will not have to carry them out and find room for them in the truck.
Create a checklist of everything you need with you when you move. This will help you to avoid unpacking boxes before you even more just to find things. Start the list early, and update it every few days, so you will have time to remember everything.
Figure out how many days are left before the move and divide out how many rooms you have to pack. For example, if you have four days left and eight rooms, you know you need to pack two rooms a day. Write a schedule of what will be packed when and stick to it. Yes, some days you will not want to bother, but force yourself. You will glad you did in the end.
When you do pack, create a list with the box name, number and contents. This will make it easier when you get to your new home to find items, without having to unpack several boxes just to find the forks.
