Yes, moving takes a lot of time and effort. It’s a well-known fact that moving home is an expensive affair as well. The boxes haven’t been disassembled yet, and we already have to live a normal life: go to work, cook something, put the children to bed on time. In order for the move not to turn into a disaster, it is enough to prepare in advance, properly pack and move your things. Proper planning will aslo guarantee saving your money. This article reveals useful and cheap ways to move.
Useful tips from those who have recently experienced relocation:
Terminate contracts with the landlord, Internet service provider, companies that provide you with cable TV, communication services, and so on. So that you don’t get invoices for services from the past that you don’t use anymore.
Determine your moving date in advance and choose a moving company. You can save money on the services of movers, if there are men in the family who will also help load and unload things. Inform the mover about this when placing your order.
When preparing furniture for moving, remove mirrors and shelves from cabinets, wrap the doors (so that they do not open) and corners (when moving, they suffer more often than the rest). Take a picture of furniture with a complex configuration — it will be easier to assemble it in a new house.
Remove cables and wires from your gadgets. Ideally, add everything together (for example, the computer and everything related to it). If you can’t do this, put stickers on the wires indicating which device they are for. You can also use your camera to capture where and what was connected.
Do not make large purchases in the week before moving. Don’t make food stocks either – it’s extra weight and space in the truck. It is better to fill up the bins in a new place.
Collect a few boxes of Essentials for the kitchen, with a couple of cups, spoons, forks, plates, a pot, kettle, and frying pan; for the bathroom, with towels, paste, and brushes, and so on.
Prepare a package with personal items for each family member: several sets of underwear and clothing, shoes, books, textbooks, and other necessary items. It is convenient when everyone has their own suitcase for this purpose — it will be easier to find them among other things.
Do a General cleaning of the new apartment while it is empty. You will not have to spend time on this after moving, but you can immediately start arranging furniture and calmly disassemble all the things from the boxes in a clean apartment.
Wash your curtains, clean your carpets, and wash your clothes while you’re still in your old apartment. This way you will save time and effort after moving. And you will need them at a new place.
