CONGRATULATIONS! You survived the nerve racking and oh-so-daunting process of finding and buying/renting a new house. Up next is another process that is even more tiring and stressful, it is bound to leave you wanting to pull your hair out if you do not plan and execute systematically and skillfully.
No matter if you are shifting from house to an apartment or vice versa, upsizing, downsizing, planning and pre-planning things can make your life easier, many folds. Keeping things organized from the day you start packing up your thins will be so relieving in the longer run that half of your troubles will vanish. Have a look at the following tip on “moving a house” and thank us later.
Do not just sit around and keep dreaming that the entire house is being packed in to boxes and is ready to be moved. You need to move your smart ass and put it to work in order to get things done. Start early, so you have ample time to put things away in an organized manner rather than dumping everything as it comes to you.
You may require a lot of packing material like cartons, firm and solid boxes, tools and what not. Whatever your estimate of the packing material is, double it in quantity. If you have hired a moving company like Royal Moving Company, inquire about moving boxes, will they be providing any, can the boxes be dropped off at your place ahead of the actual moving date or you may simply order boxes and other required moving boxes online. The boxes should be in variable sizes, from as small as to accommodate your undergarments to as big as to fit your flat TV screen.
Organized packing is the key here. Do not just dump anything and everything together. Start by going from room to room. Pack the things first which are not in use. The kitchen should be packed in the last. Label the boxes and cartons with a tag, indicating what stuff is inside so that while unpacking you may have to look through the entire plethora of boxes to find just a needle.
DE CLUTTER NOW
Anything that you have not used since long, do not like it or most like will not be going to put to use in your new house too, then do not pay the movers to shift it from one place to another. Set it aside just right here to be discarded or given out to charity or needy people to benefit from it.
PUT THE NEW HOUSE TO WORK
Before you finally step into the new house, be it a rented space or you bought it for life, from the tiniest to major changes you might need to incorporate to make your life easier later on. Be it cosmetic changes like painting the entire house to a new theme or its just one wall, getting the carpets and rugs washed or getting the bathroom sanitary changed, think and act over it before you move in.
PLAN THE SPACE
Before moving in pre plan your space so that you are not in panic on the day of shifting. Plan and do your homework that where you wish to place your stuff after it has been moved into the new house. If not the tiny bits and pieces but the bigger ones like heavy furniture pieces, wall mounts that come in attachments and things like consoles and media cabinets.
