5 Tips for Avoiding Moving Day Chaos
It’s never too early to prepare
One of the biggest pitfalls of a big move is not starting early enough. You never really realize how much stuff you have until you find yourself trying to pack it all into a handful of boxes that need to fit on a single truck. Start sorting your belongings early to ensure that everything you want in your new house is ready to go when the truck arrives. Start packing the day your move becomes official.
There’s no such thing as too many boxes
Gathering supplies is an important part of keeping your move as organized as possible. Ask your family and friends for all their scrap cardboard boxes. Moving is hard enough when everything is neatly packed, taped and labeled—trying to move with loose items on the truck will make your experience a moving nightmare.
Say goodbye to the unwanted and unused
We understand the nostalgia that comes with rediscovering old treasures, but moving is the perfect time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in years. Reducing the number of items you need to pack is a great way to lighten the load (literally) when it comes to packing for a move. Remember, the less you have, the easier it will be.
Take apart your furniture
Size and manoeuvrability is often a big problem when getting your furniture through the door. While keeping your furniture assembled may seem convenient for the purpose of setting it up in the future, the inconvenience of moving bulkier items can be highly problematic, not to mention the possible damage caused when trying to move fully assembled pieces into your house.
