If you are planning to move, these tips will help create a stress-free moving experience.
Here are a few suggestions for a stress-free move—straight from Simon, the owner of H2H movers, Inc.
Relocating to a new place can be wonderful and exciting. However, it can also be stressful, especially when you begin to think about all the stuff you have to pack. You need to get a head start and stay organized in order to make it through this mammoth process stress-free. Here are my top five tips that will prove helpful when moving.
First, get organized early enough
Starting to pack at the last minute can be a real nightmare. When you organize your stuff in a hurry, chances are that you will forget to place some items where necessary or break some of your valuables. Take a month or more to plan so that the day runs smoothly. You can do this by creating a countdown list and itemizing everything you are to accomplish week by week.
Keep your movers in the loop
Packing your clothes in boxes is one thing, but when you get to the big items, it is important you let your movers know what to expect. Communicate with the moving company and inform them of the requirements prior to booking. This will enable them determine the proper equipment to bring, as well as the cost.
Keep items you will need first in a clear plastic bin
Chances are that when you get to your new destination you will be too tired to search for essentials. Clear bins allow you to see inside and pick items that you need without much hassle. This includes things like eating utensils, power strips, tools and phone chargers.
Label all your boxes
If you are packing lots of items you will want to label the boxes, indicating the room where each box should go. This way, you will be able to manage them better and save some time when unpacking. Don’t forget to do the labeling on the sides and not the tops, as this will help you identify them even if they are stacked.
Take photos of how your electronics are connected
When you move to a new place you may get confused when it comes to connecting electronics, especially if they have many wires. You should take photos of how they are connected, keeping a keen eye on where all the wires go for easy connection.
