Moving into a new home can be a daunting task for the movers. They would often miss the obvious tasks at hand and do not realize the importance of small details that matter a lot during a move. But then, everyone has different priority levels.
With that in mind, movers like you should make up a short list of necessary items before moving into a new apartment. Begin your task by keeping the move in your mind and setup an outline along with two lists, a list of the physical items that you will need to purchase for the move and a to do list. With the help of this, you could get an accurate measurement of what tasks are left to be accomplished prior to moving.
Here is another list that could help you before moving:
1. Packing material is a must! – Collect newspaper, bubble wrap, towels and so on to pack your valuables. Newspaper can be shredded to protect fragile items from impacts when moved. Whereas a bubble wrap could be used for the more delicate items including fine china, art work, and other fragile knick knacks.
2. Collect boxes to pack your belongings – You can either purchase them from a moving supply store, find them in department stores or from the movers you hire to help you move. Make sure the boxes are of various sizes, including wardrobe boxes, and are made of cardboard and plastic.
3. Mark your boxes and always keep the tape dispenser by your side – It’s always a good idea to seal the boxes. Interlocking the flaps of boxes does not provide enough lock for the box and may open during the transfer.
4. Finally use movers wrap – It is a large roll of wrap like material. You could use this to wrap your furniture, TV, and other large items that either don’t fit in a container or require additional protection.
With the help of these tricks, not only will you be ready to move, but it would also help your moving and storage company to move your belongings to your new address conveniently!
