Tips To Make Moving Easy And Fun

Moving can be a nightmare, or it can be easy and fun. After I had some bad experiences, I decided to make some changes. The last time I moved it was a wonderful experience for my entire family.

Time For A Little Housecleaning

One mistake I made when moving in the past was leaving my house exactly as it was until it was time to pack. This caused a lot of unnecessary stress and chaos, because I needed to decide at the last minute what to take and what to leave behind.

 

Pack Small Appliances For Moving

This early sorting takes a bit of time, but it is worth it. You will not risk leaving important items behind, or going through the extra bother of packing items you do not need. 

 

 

Itemize Everything You Own

The simplest approach is to itemize on a room-to-room basis. You can use a standard notebook and have a separate section for each room. From furniture and household goods to clothing and books, list every item you want in your new house. In addition to the bedrooms, bathroom, living room, and kitchen.

Maintenance For Your Car

You do not want to leave your house in poor condition. When you take time to clean it before you move, the new owners will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Choose Your Moving Date

There is much more to moving than transferring your possessions from one home to another. A specific moving date will help you set plans into motion.  If you do not want your mail delivery to be interrupted, notify your local post office four to six weeks before your moving date.

Second, notify your current utility companies and the companies you will be dealing with at your new location. 

Tips For Your Trip

Even if you have a debit card or credit card, you should always carry a small amount of cash. You may want to tip your movers, purchase snacks or drinks from vending machines, or leave a tip when you visit a restaurant.

To make moving day easier, plan to start the trip early in the day. You may need to pack your bedding and personal grooming items, there is usually less traffic early in the morning, and you will feel more refreshed when you get up early.

When You Arrive At Your Destination

Your adventure is not over when you drive into your new driveway. Whether the professional movers have brought everything in, or whether you must wait for it to arrive, it is time to give yourself a break and enjoy your new surroundings. Unpacking can wait until tomorrow.
