Moving into a new place brings with it a flood of different emotions.
You’re excited to move into a new place, but you’re also stressed over how you’re going to be able to transition as smoothly as possible from one place to another.
This is why we’re going to show you how you can plan and pack in the most organized manner to allow you a stress free move.
Contact A Moving Company
The first thing you need to do is find yourself a reliable moving company.
You need to do this as early as possible because it’s important that you schedule the moving day with them.
If you take Australia as an example, you’ll find that the best moving companies have a website where you can easily contact them and work out the details from the comfort of your laptop.
This goes a long way in saving time because you don’t have to run around looking for a moving company.
You’re also able to hash out all the details in regards to how you’d like the move to go and work out how long it would take to get everything moved.
Prep For Packing
The next step is to ensure that you have all the materials and equipment that you’ll need to use as you pack.
This includes boxes, tape, bubble wrap, labels and markers. By doing this early on, you save yourself a lot of time and stress during the packing process.
You’ll also want to rally up a team of family and friends to help you out to get things done at a much faster rate.
Don’t forget to have someone to come and pack the appliances for you as well- most likely, the moving company will either provide you someone from their team.
Sort and Separate
In order to get through the packing process as quickly as possible, it’s important that you take one room at a time, and assign a box for packing and a box for clutter.
This is the perfect opportunity to get rid of things that you no longer need or use and clear the clutter that’s been collecting in your home.
Make sure that as you pack each box, that you create a checklist simultaneously that includes each item that you pack.
That way, it will be much easier to unpack and also keep track of your belongings in case you doubt that something is missing.
Label The Boxes
Once you’ve closed off the boxes, it’s a good idea to label the boxes in a way that is clear.
Think about color coding them for each room so that when the move takes place and the boxes are being transported, the movers know exactly where to place them instead of piling them all up in one place.
This will certainly make the unpacking process more organized and stress free.
Move The Appliances First
Remember to plan for having your appliances moved first, as these will take more time to set up.
Arrange a separate date with the moving company exclusively for the appliances, and make sure that you have the electrician and the plumber come in on this day so that you are able to have everything installed before you get the rest of the boxes in.
Clean Before and After You Move
It’s a step that many people tend to forget, but is certain to make your life so much easier as you move into your new space.
Find yourself a professional cleaning company, and arrange for them to clean the house after you’ve had the appliances put in, after the furniture has been moved, and after you’re done unpacking.
You’ll find that you won’t have to deal with any stressful cleaning and it will be done professionally as well.
The prospect of moving brings with it a number of responsibilities that are bound to create a certain sense of stress.
This is why it’s important that you have some order to the chaos.
If you follow through with the checklist we’ve provided here, you’re bound to have a smooth sailing move that has minimal issues.
It’s important that you do each step in order because this is the only way you’ll be able to actually keep order and stay organized.
By contemplating every factor of the move separately and organizing the order in a way that works well within your intended moving date, you’ll find that not only will the move be easier, but so will the packing and unpacking, and you’ll also have a clean home that’s ready to move into.
