Moving does not have to be a big hassle. The trick to moving with ease, joy, and glory lies in the preparation.
We have all heard of the 5P’s. Perfect Preparation Prevents Pretty Poor outcomes. This is true in just about everything you choose to do.
So How Can You Prepare and Take The Pressure Off?
No Damage Removals the best movers the entire Sunshine Coast has to offer have compiled a few tips to help you on your way to success.
Hopefully, you have a move date that gives you some room to breathe and time to plan.
If you are moving out of an apartment building you may need to advise the body corporate of your intention to bring a large truck on site. This will allow them to advise fellow tenants and make appropriate access available.
Declutter your space of the items you have not used in a while. Clothes, shoes, crockery, books, and even pieces of furniture are all gratefully received at charity stores. If you have the time you could list them on eBay or Gumtree and earn a little bit of extra cash.
Check out the paraphernalia you have stored away in the shed and start packing from here early. Just keep out the items you know you are going to need and pack away the rest. The shed can be a shock for some as they are really unaware of just how much stuff can accumulate and be forgotten.
The same goes for packing things away that you won’t be using for a while first. A good rule of thumb is to put aside the items you will need and pack or dispose of the rest. This is another great opportunity to further rid yourself of unwanted items and lighten your load. Remember, fewer items packed and moved means less time moving.
Ask for help. If you have children or pets it will help you immensely to let someone else look after them for the day. Likewise, if you have some strong friends to help you lift the heavy boxes you are on to a winner. It’s amazing what a pizza and some beers can do to help your cause!
Finally, make sure you have the keys to your new place somewhere safe and within easy access. It can blow your whole day apart if you realise they are packed away in a box and you don’t know which one.
