Are you moving houses anytime soon? It can be stressful, yes. But there are some simple, smart tricks you can do to make the moving part less strenuous, physically and emotionally. Here are four smart things to do before you move into your new home.
First of all, decide if you’re hiring professional movers or doing it yourself.
There are many benefits to hiring professional movers, but there are also many gains to doing it yourself. You can start days early, weeks even, and purge your whole house. Get rid of the things you no longer use or even need. It’s a good time to conduct a quick moving out sale and earn some dough on the side.
Decide you will transport your stuff.
If you hire professional movers, they will handle the transport logistics for you. But if you’re doing it yourself or asking friends and family to help you move, you handle the stressful logistical planning yourself. If you don’t want to hire pro movers, just get a truck for hire. This way, you get to pack your things (and decide which to throw away and which to keep) while a different team handles the hauling.
You don’t need to unpack your entire closet when moving houses. You can simply prepare the entire cabinet for hauling. If you’re not comfortable with this, you can simply take the clothes—hanger and all—and use wardrobe boxes for the move. This will save you the time and hassle that comes with ironing them again or worse, washing them all over again.
Hire professional cleaners.
One of the most stressful things about moving to a new house is cleaning the new property. Before you move in and unpack, hire professional cleaners to do a thorough clean of your new home. You don’t need to worry if the carpet needs to be cleaned before your furniture arrives. This way, when the boxes arrive, you can easily unpack, and you’ll be done in a day or two.
Make The Smart Move.
If you want to enjoy moving into your new home faster, keep these tips in mind. The faster you can settle in, the better you will feel, and the more time you can explore your new neighbourhood and make new friends.
