If you are moving house, it could be a real harrowing experience. Packing and moving is a stressful process hated by many. Even though packer and mover services are available, it’s not as easy as you think. Being organized in the process is a must, especially for those with a transferable job, to whom, moving house is almost a way of life. No doubt, the process is pretty stressful and even painful at times. Just be prepared and chill. Make sure you a lot of cartons before moving. Throw them away once you have shifted to save space.
The movers do bring their own cartons of various shapes and sizes. Thus packing the stuff won’t be a problem really. However, it is better to carry the fragile stuff inside your car and not on the mover’s truck. You should be aware of the cleaning gear and where you keep it. If you have to clean-up the house once everything is packed and ready, do not put the cleaning gear in the truck. Cleaning the old place always takes a lot of time. Thus, it is necessary to start cleaning the old house in advance.
If you have been using a land line for long, arrange for line disconnection the day after you move. Do not forget to switch off the main power to avoid any sort of wastage. If you have kids and they are clueless as to why they are suddenly changing homes, that’s not ideal parenting. Hence, it is important to prepare your kids from before. Explain them clearly why you are moving and how it is absolutely necessary. Make the packing and moving as interesting as possible. Ideally, if possible, you should take your kid(s) once to the new house before.They should have an idea where they are about to settle next. Book movers several days before the D-Day. On the day of the move, call them up first thing in the morning to ensure they have not forgotten.
