Practical Tips on Packing and Removals
Moving is surely one of the most stressful moments in your life and packing is surely one of the most tedious tasks you'd have to do. But if you plan ahead, you'd surely have enough time for everything and you would not be as stressed as when you're in a hurry.
Planning and Preparation
Begin by making a list of all the things you need to do. This could include the packing and hiring of removal company or a rental van. Then you have to make sure that all utilities are available in your new home when you get there. If your kids need to transfer schools you also need to arrange everything.
Before packing you need to sort all your things. While most of them have memories attached to them, it's best to be practical if you're not going to use them and you don't have space for them in your new home. You can either donate them or dispose everything through a garage sale so you can make money too.
Packing with Care
When packing make sure that you have sufficient supply of appropriate packing materials. Have lots of sturdy boxes, bubble wraps and newspapers. Appliances are safest in their original boxes. Chinaware should be wrapped individually first before placed in boxes. Other breakables can be wrapped in towels too.
Don't forget to put labels on the boxes so you will know what is inside of the boxes and where each needs to go. This will guide the movers too as they unload your things.
Again if you start planning and preparing for the move early everything will be organized. It would go smoothly and so it surely would be less stressful to you.
