After a lot of searching, you’ve finally found your dream home. Excellent! But and now? With the move date set, it’s time to take precautions and organize the process to make this special moment much lighter and easier. Believe me: moving doesn’t have to be synonymous with stress and headaches.
- Have You Thought About How To Pack Everything?
If you have decided to pack the furniture yourself, remember to provide some necessary items such as cardboard boxes and tape. Many use newspapers to wrap smaller objects, but they can stain some more sensitive items. And to make the process more sustainable, avoid using bubble wrap. Shredded cardboard and bio packs (a kind of biodegradable Styrofoam extruded from corn) are suitable substitutes and are capable of protecting various objects.
- Box The Offal First
Don’t just sit back and wait for the big day to come. A few weeks in advance, you can already pack some offal and less-used belongings such as books, CDs, dishes, and bed linen in the closet.
- Organize The Boxes
After preparing the first boxes, label them according to the room and mark what was stored inside. Also, prepare a box to receive only the most important belongings you will need once you arrive at the new house. This makes it easier to find them during the move.
- Furniture Transportation
One of the most important decisions to be made is choosing reliable transport like Alliance moving and storage for example for the furniture. This will determine the state in which your belongings will arrive at the new address. Leave laziness aside and get quotes from different companies. Make sure the carrier is insured and is also responsible for packing each item.
Important: if you depend on any factor to get the keys for the new house, find out about the rebooking values because if this is not resolved by the scheduled date, you will have to reschedule the move.
- Update The Address
Cancel all services and utilities in your old house and install them in the new house. Also, request an update of the address for important correspondence that you usually receive and avoid the loss of notifications.
- Notify The Condominium
With the date and transportation set, it’s time to notify the condominium about the move. Notify the manager to inform the other residents and take the necessary steps so that everything happens safely. The manager is the person responsible for, among other things, releasing an elevator specifically for the move (if there is more than one elevator), designating a building employee to monitor the move, and facilitate access to the building.
