The Complete Guide to Moving House
Moving is not always the simplest task in the world. There are plenty of things that can go wrong, and it becomes hard to know what you should do when you’re moving. That’s why you need some moving tips!
First, let’s talk about packing. Packing is the first thing you’ll want to do before your move, and it can take some time depending on how much stuff you have. You should always start off by sorting everything into three separate piles: keep, sell/give away, toss/recycle. This will help organize what you need for the upcoming move as well as getting rid of things that are no longer needed or wanted in your life anymore.
Next up would be figuring out which items go with you to your new home! Here are a few tips when deciding whether or not an item goes along for the ride… – If something has high sentimental value but doesn’t serve its purpose any longer (e.g., grandma’s china set), then it’s time to pack that up! – If you haven’t used it in over a year or two, then there is no reason why you should be keeping this item. As they say, out with the old and in with the new.
Things that are broken can go either way: if it isn’t worth fixing, get rid of it; however, if the item still has some life left in it but needs repairs (e.g., grandma’s rocking chair), then bring along those items that could use a little TLC before making another appearance into your home decor.
Have you ever heard people say things like “pack half of what you have and put it in storage, so when you get to your new place there’s less work for you“? This is a great idea if the move entails renting out a moving truck to transport your belongings; however, we don’t recommend this method for those who are packing everything into their car. The reason why? You’ll probably never see that stuff again!
Be sure to plan ahead of time where items go once you reach your destination. If possible, label boxes with what room they’re intended to be placed in (e.g., “kitchen”, “bathroom”).
