Planning a move is so hard especially if you’re doing it alone. Keep in mind that having bumps on the road, your nerves strained, and more is natural.
However, to minimize that, we have some four important tips for you to make your moving better and more comfortable.
If you’re struggling you can always book the H2H Movers team and have your move done professionally while you’re sipping a coffee and relaxing.
Now let’s take a look at our small guide of all the shoulds and hopefully to get you inspired to plan and execute everything as best as possible.
Don’t pack away important, essential items
One of the main rules when it comes to moving is leaving all of your important items like documents, clothes for change, toiletries, medicine, underwear, and more out of the moving truck.
Especially if you’re moving across the country or state, you never knew if a little stay in a hotel might be needed. Be prepared for all case scenarios because the moving process can be very unpredicted.
If you have pets or kids, you might want to leave out toys for both kids and dogs, dog bowls, treats, clothes, and more. Get some coloring books or activities for the kids to pass time.
Moving is a physical activity – have snacks and hydration ready!
Moving takes so much out of you especially if you’re doing it alone without professional movers. Seasons can also influence a move, for example moving during the scorching heat in summer can be physically draining.
This is why you should always have water and snacks available at all times. Grab your favorite protein bars, fruits, nuts, and don’t forget to drink water.
Don’t exhaust yourself or push any limits by carrying heavy items or trying to cram a piano in a moving truck. Let the professionals like the H2H Movers do it, so there’s no emergency trip to the ER later. Handling massive items or fragile things like paintings ,can be a bit overwhelming, so a team of movers are your best friend. Don’t be hesitant and book the H2H team now.
Disassemble all furniture prior to moving day to save time
Disassembling your furniture before the moving day is important since it will leave more time for other activities and you will feel a weight lifted off your shoulders.
Our advice is to disassemble whatever you can and leave the big stuff to the professionals.Not everything is up your alley and it’s best to handle such activities with caution before straining your back.
Always be sure that you keep all parts in separate bags with labels on them, so you don’t miss a bolt or two from your sofa and end up causing more mayhem. Stay organized and keep calm.
Don’t let small bumps in the road throw off your day
Always remember that whatever issues you encounter throughout the process, they shouldn’t cloud your experience. It’s possible that the moving can have unplanned trajectories and you might feel disappointed at times.
Have some coffee, drink some water, and go on a walk to put your thoughts together and make a plan. Nothing is as bad as it you make it in your head to be.
With that said, we hope that you have some inspiration from our little guide and look forward to new content on our H2H blog. We wish you happy moving. Breathe and relax.
