When you have finally saved enough money to go for that nice house down the block that you have been eyeing for the past year, it is a great feeling to be able to call it your own and plan on the first party in the house to show it off to your friends. Moving can be a tiresome task that will end up adding to your stress levels. So in order to reduce the amounts of stress make sure to try and follow these tips.
● Moving strategy
Make your own plan for moving according to your time constrictions as well as the amount of stuff that needs to get to the new place. If you have only a limited amount of things that need to find their way to the new house or the place is pretty close by and you can manage with a number of visits then asking your friends and family to help you move the items will be easier on your wallet. However if you have loads of boxes and if you feel like you will end up paying the amount for a home mover on gas, then asking for professional help would be the better option.
Make sure to let your mover company know what exactly they have signed up for; this is especially important if you have heavy and large items like big furniture and pianos and such items in your to-move list.
● Organize early on
One of the most told tips on moving is planning early. If you are a slower planner then make sure you plan a couple of months ahead of the moving day. Make a timetable on which weeks and months will be used on getting all the documents ready, then which weeks for packing, afterwards for moving to the new house and finally unpacking at new house.
● The purge
When you lots of items you do not plan on taking to the new place then it is time for a garage sale or a yard sale to be scheduled. This is a good opportunity to make some small cash and also get rid of the vase you hate. If you have items that you would like to donate to goodwill or another charity organization then it will be a good idea to have them given away a day or two before the yard sale so you will not end up adding them to the sale list.
The whole moving process can take a couple of weeks and also be exhausting for those who have not done this before. So make sure you have everything packed on your own and that the new place is also spotlessly clean.
