There will come a time in our lives when we will need to move to a new home. For some of us that move might be across town or it might be across the country. No matter where you are trying to get to this is an ordeal that requires months of planning and preparation. We have some great tips for you to remember that will help you to get it all done with as little stress as possible.
The first thing that you will need to do when you make the decision to move is to gather up as many boxes as you are able to find. Make sure to grab the small and large ones to hold everything possible that you have. On this box run you will also need to get a hold of tape, markers, and packing paper.
Next you will need to start packing up what you have. Start in a room that is not important and you do not mind being in boxes for a few months. While you pack up make sure to sort through what you own and get rid of what might be holding you back and taking up too much space. Also make sure to label each of the boxes.
As you get closer to moving you will need to start calling the electric companies for the old and new place. Set up the cut off and start dates so that you will not have to be without in either place. Also make sure that you have given them the deposit that they might need. Not everyone will require this.
A day or two before you move you need to rent the moving truck and get the boxes ready to move into it. Try to move the boxes in the front of the house. That way it does not take as long to pack up the truck. Also try to break down what furniture you can.
When packing up the truck be careful that you do not break anything in the process. Use furniture moving pads to keep boxes and the large furniture from getting scratched and broken. Just imagine that it is a puzzle you have to put together so nothing falls over during the drive.
