Congratulations, You’re ready to move to a new house and start a new chapter of your life.
Before you move, make sure that everything is ready in your new house before the transition, especially electricity, gas, internet, telephone and other services that need to be taken into consideration in advance. Also make sure you have indicated the schedule of furniture delivery to everybody involved. And don’t forget to cancel services in the old residence in a planned manner well in advance of the actual move.
Before the furniture removals arrive at the new location, check the measurements of the rooms, doors, elevators and stairs. To make it easier, you can mark the floor of the new house with tape, where objects will stay, so as to have a general notion of space.
If you live or live in a condominium, there are usually rules for making removals and other works that are noisy. Do not forget to warn both parties, and comply with these rules.
– A few days before you move
It is recommended that you start packing the items one week in advance. Start packing everything that is not used in everyday life, such as books, decorations, clothes from another season, little used crockery, among others. Only the essentials should be packed on the last day.
An important hint of how to organize change is to pack fragile objects well, using plastic bubble, cardboard and newspaper plentifully. Do not forget to identify the boxes that will house these items and indicate how they should be transported and whether they need to be handled with care or are fragile.
Take advantage of this moment when you will have to assess every household object you own to evaluate whether you should take it or if it is better to discard or donate it.
Create a special box for the first day after the move. In it, you must contain the objects of extreme use that the family will need to use immediately. The ideal is to be full of hygiene products, towels, bed set, some dishes, glasses, cutlery, basic cleaning supplies and some clothes. Thus, it is not necessary to search for essential items on the day of the change.
– The day you move
One way to organize a successful house removal is to always have more than one person to order the day of transition. It is interesting to have someone in the old house to meet the carrier and another in the new residence to receive them and indicate where the objects should be. It is recommended that the large pieces arrive first and then the small boxes. Your should always look to hire the best removals company. There experience will be invaluable to making sure everything goes smoothly/
– After the transition
The first day in the new house is dedicated to tidying up the most used environments such as the bedroom, bathroom and part of the kitchen.
It’s also time to change your mailing address so letters, bills, orders, and more arrive in your new home.
After the tips on how to organize change, just start packing your new home and enjoy the new phase of your life.
