Moving day is finally approaching. And as much as you’re excited for this next step in your life, you’re right to feel slightly terrified as well. Moving from one house to the next is a big responsibility, especially if you’re someone who hasn’t been charged with something like so.
However, you needn’t be worried.
With a little prep work and this blog, your move to your next dream home will go without a hitch!
Preparing for Moving Day—Everything You Need
– An Organized System
Here’s what you need:
- Boxes specifically marked for packing
- A label maker or something to mark each box separately
- A list of all boxes, with each box marked with a number
- Special items in a separate box, placed in a corner
You need to be well-organized in your approach. It’s very easy to lose track of the moving process if you don’t know what’s going where. Mark each box according to the room where it should go and have your movers take them there, so it’s easier to arrange everything later on.
– A Definite Budget
Have you found the right moving company yet? Some companies like ACME Moving Labor offers moving and packing help to all in Seattle. If you need packing help, talk to us and find out if we can work within your budget. Most likely, our rates will suffice.
Note on Add-Ons: While it’s not required, it doesn’t hurt to take care of your moving crew. Keeping water and some beverages nearby (non-alcoholic, of course!) and perhaps asking once in a while will be more than enough to show them you care.
– A Separate Plan for Prepping Movers
Let’s say you’ve hired us. Despite being professionals, we still won’t really know where you need your unmarked boxes unless you tell us.
Giving us a game plan, something to follow will really be helpful. Also, if you live in a really busy area, giving us a heads-up about reserving a spot will at least give us a chance to find a good parking place.
– A Clear Path
Come moving day, you’ll want everything to go smoothly, and we mean that in the literal sense as well. Packing away all items that may obstruct our path such as potted plants, rugs and floor mats, hanging plants and wind chimes, perhaps disconnecting the spring by the door—removing all these potential hazards will really help in keeping your moving plan going.
Are You Ready?
Alongside, also let us know if you have any special items that need to be transported first. Donate your items before you move, so there’s less to pack and unpack.
