I m not going to utter a single lie to you as lie pleases the world and truth is bitter, packing and moving is always been stressful. But for every problem there is a solution, so by proper planning and organization you can minimize the stress. Following are the tried and true tips for making the process much easier and stress free.
1. Chuck out the unwanted stuff as soon as possible:-
It is always suggested to pick and pack the useful material before the day you are moving as at the last moment you went down panicking and just collecting everything into the carats without any consideration. It is obviously much easier to throw unwanted stuff than to shift. If you are planning to sell anything then it will take time so it is better to start as early as possible.
Get an accurate measurement of the new place:-
Few things create more stress when remain undone like realizing your happy family won’t fit in living room. Try and take a pre visit to the place to avoid this kind of problem and to get proper measurements of each and every room including entrance door so you know what will be fit through the doors.
Try to tie everything in box while relocating:
Using boxes is the best way to get rid of any hassle during moving. It also helps you in carrying more on each trip. When you have doubt of splitting incidents try to cover the boxes with packing tape. Plastic crates play a better role for that purpose also.
Avoid using boxes and bags with large size:-
Yeah it is tempting to pile up everything and to put them into one large box and just lug it to the new place. But if your packaging box is too heavy to carry then it will be difficult for you to carry that on new place rather try making 2 smalls boxes or bags to avoid any accidents.
Label and name the boxes and bags with proper contents and destination as well:-
As we all know everyone is not lucky enough to have friends and family helping them out to move. Work will get much easier for you when each and every box is labeled with a proper content and destination in the new home. And of course it will help when your new place is way bigger than your last place.
Always have proper plan to dispose boxes after relocation:-
After shifting and moving you will left with lots of leftover boxes, so try to pre visit the place for a straight plan to dumb that stuff after shifting. if you have got a storage room at your place, you can keep them and offer to any recycling company for profit.
Despite of a perfect plan and scheduling everything or moving merely 600 meters away you will be stuck down in situation of trouble so don’t let any of these things spoil your experience.
