Tips on How to Move Houses Efficiently and Economically
Published on Thursday, 26 August 2010
If you want to make your removals convenient and less stressful, you should plan all steps and list down all things that need to be taken care of. To even make your move less stressful, you can lessen the expenses. This means that you need to do most of the tasks though. If you can be flexible on your moving date, you can check out some back loading options to save on transportation expenses. You should check the schedule of the company that offer such services many weeks in advance so you can time your move in time. Take note that they follow a schedule instead of following yours. So again, you need to be able to finish packing by then. They also have a fixed type of vehicle so the available space is fixed as well. You need to check whether your things will fit there.
On the other hand, you should also start segregating your things early. Separate the things you need to discard. If you want to raise some cash, you can hold a garage sale. Then you can buy packing materials for the other things than need to be packed. You can buy secondhand boxes from people who have just moved. Just make sure that the boxes are still in good condition. You could also buy in bulk and packing kits to save.
Start packing the things that you will not need yet. Then pack essential items in one box so you will still have your daily needs available right before you move and right after you get to you new home. Label all boxes too so you know where to put the boxes and which ones to unpack first. Include a list of inventory too so finding things would be easier later on.
