House Movers’ Tips For Getting Ready To Move

Moving can be a stressful time for anyone, whether you’re moving office premises or moving into your dream family home. The first step in making a move less stressful is to hire a moving company that can help you on the day and isn’t going to cost you a fortune, like Truck About. Here are some tips from experienced house movers in Palmerston North that will help simplify your upcoming move.

Declutter First

Before you even start packing up your belongings, take stock and do a thorough declutter. It can be tempting to pack everything up to go through as you unpack in your new space. Is there really any sense in boxing it all up, carting it off to the new space only to get rid of it as you unpack?

Pack Some Essentials

Keep a small box, bag or suitcase full of essentials. Moving can be stressful and chaotic and things may not go to plan. Rather than needing to rifle through boxes, pack your essentials right in the beginning. Essentials can include medications, toiletries, a few changes of clothes, chargers and anything else you may need for the first few days after moving.

Take Photos

Do you need to stress about how to get all of the cables and plugs in just the right spot for your complicated entertainment system after spending the day moving? Unlikely! Photos are your friend. Before packing up electronics (or anything that needs to fit together in a specific way), take a photo of how it’s all configured. It will make a huge difference when you set up in your new space.

Plan Ahead For Your Pets And Kids

If you have pets or small children, make arrangements for someone to look after them while you’re moving, if possible. Offsite babysitting will help save you stress and keep your kids or animals from getting bored or anxious.

Take It Easy The Night Before

Moving days are difficult enough. The night before, make sure you have a good meal and a good night’s rest. Prepare a few grab-and-go snacks and drinks that you can have on hand throughout the moving day to keep yourself hydrated and in good strength.
