Moving house is very difficult and stressful job demanding extreme care in packing and moving things as a wrong step might result in heavy loss. However if you know how to do it well, it can turn into stress-free, and easy task. One thing you must always remember while moving house is that packing everything well takes time. You need to know much before the due time and start packing things so that you don’t miss or mishap with things at the last moment. There are some key points that can help you make your moving house successful.
First of all you need to know what are the packing materials required to pack each and everything you want to take along. Have everything ready before you start packing. It irritates very much when you sit for packing on a pre-decided date, only to find that appropriate packing boxes or taps are missing. You can run to the shop and buy them but most often these things are not available in nearby shops and you have to go to main market. Usually you need to have bubble wrap, cardboard boxes, tapes, marker pens, newspapers, some old news papers and waste pieces of clothes. As you finish packing items, you should number the box and jot down the same on a blank sheet as well to prepare list of packs. You should also label each box with its desired location to restore such as something that should be put in kitchen should be labeled ‘kitchen’, or something meant for bedroom should be marked ‘bedroom’ on the label. This way it will be easy for you to restore each and everything at the right place.
Always keep weight of boxes to the extent one can pick easily. The fragile items and articles should be packed in bubble sheets and the gaps should be filled with waste paper, clothes or other soft stuff to protect it from jerks. All the items should be packed in separate boxes. If you have multiple small items, pack them in multiple small boxes. You can repack all the small boxes in one large box later for the convenience of handling them. This will minimize the possibility of losing any item.
There are always some things which you will require as soon as you reach to the new destination. This can include coffee powder, the brewing pot, kettle, coffee maker, some snacks, medicines, edibles, etc. you should pack all such things separately in a box so that you can easily find them when needed. Generally you should carry it along in cars or trains but, in case you have to send it in the moving van, you should specifically mark ‘first one out’ on the label. Always remember to keep valuable jewelleries and important documents along with you. You should also keep your regular medicines, cell phones, pets, telephone diaries. For moving clothes you should use heavy duty bags made of thick material so that it doesn’t easily rip in transit.
These tips are sure going to help you move house without much trouble.
