Things To Remember Before You Move

Spread the love

Moving house is a stressful and yet exhilarating time of your life. For one you are likely moving on to better things and opening up to and welcoming new opportunities and at the same time there are so many things to take care of. You need to pack up, take care of paper work, pay your bills, and have the gas and electricity and water running at your new home among a million other things. Luckily, we have put together a list of things to remember to do before you move.

Pack smart

You need to pack up all your life’s belongings before you move. You should stay organised and pack smart from the very start so that you do not get flustered or stressed out as the process moves forward or even when moving day comes around. First get your packing boxes ready. Make sure you have tape and a marker ready to label each box with its contents and also to label it the right side up. This is especially important if you are packing fragile items like glass ware, plates and dishes, electronic items or ornaments. For good measure, you should also label those boxes as fragile and handle with care to ensure that they aren’t rough handled or dropped during the move. Also have newspaper and bubble wrap on hand to wrap and pack fragile items in to give them an extra layer of protection.

Storing your belongings

You may not be able to take everything you won with you to your new home. For instance if you own a mini library, but your new home only has space for a couple of bookshelves and donating or giving away your books is not an option then look into selective pallet racking as a storage option.

Selective pallet racking will ensure your belongings in good condition and that they stay dry and safe until you need them back. Other items to consider storing are the extra furniture like chairs or a couch that you do not want to part with or the extra clothes or bedding you may not need immediately.

Paper work and calls

Finally, ensure that all paperwork is taken care of before you move. Make sure that the property transfer papers are signed and make all necessary phone calls to ensure that you will have access to the keys for your new place in time to move in and that the gas, electricity and water will be in working order when you move in.
