Neither moving or unpacking generally sound fun. Moving is, for the biggest part, a very difficult and troublesome task, and proper preparation for it is great art. Yet even more artistic art is to stay a loving partner and a caring parent during the move. Especially if you happened to move in the middle of the holiday season or a world pandemic.
First things first. If you want to move and unpack easily you have to pack light first. Declutter is our big word here. Easy to say, not so easy to do you say. Watch our tips on what to get rid of before you pack for your move.
In order to move without losses, you need to learn how to pack properly. When it comes to moving to a new home, opinions differ. For some people, packing up is real punishment but unpacking at the new house makes them feel energetic and full of opportunity. Many other people take part in packing up the household with pleasure, but they hate the drudgery of unpacking once the moving trucks have parked near their new house.
If you’re one of those people who consider unpacking exhausting and stressful, here is the list of steps on how to make it fun.
All those boxes that contain items and utensils must be signed with a marker pen on all sides. Movers do not have the gift of foresight and may well damage things (especially fragile and household appliances) when loading and unloading them. If the box is marked with its destination in a new place, movers can not make a mistake, and the move will not be marred by damage. You can also give each room in the house its color and mark each box and item with the appropriate room’s color. You can write directly on boxes. When everything is moved into your new location you need to color all the destinations with the appropriate color.
The idea of making a floor plan is genius if you’re moving with kids. It is a great way to involve children in the process of moving. Give them a chance to help you by drawing this masterpiece. Let your kid decide where he/she wants to put his/her things and furniture but don’t forget to guide your child.
The last thing you need is to pack your entire life into garbage bags only to realize that the outfit you need for work the next day is buried somewhere at the bottom. That will only add more stress to an already stressful moving situation. Try to use some of our stress-killing advice. Plan and arrange your move a smart way. Make sure to pack a small duffel bag with all of the essentials: toothbrush, any medications, pajamas, clean undies, essential documents you have, chargers, day-to-day toiletries, and maybe one or two outfits that will get you through the next few days of chaos. You should also include valuable items, like your passport, laptop, and car keys to staving them off from vanishing. Once your essentials bag is ready, you can proceed with packing.
Almost all transport companies offer the service of packing and unpacking your move. They send a specialist who will calculate the amount of packaging, determine its type and calculate the approximate time needed for packaging. Experienced packers will correctly mark the boxes, making it easier for the movers to load and unload the car. It will also be easier for you to sort things out on arrival at your new place. The types of packaging offered by the modern market are striking in their variety.
It is better to entrust the packaging function to a reliable transport company, rather than trying to solve this task yourself.
