So, moving day is coming up? Good for you; the hard work is nearly over. But, we would be lying if we said it’s all plain sailing from here. In truth, it doesn’t get much harder than the day itself. The good news is, by that point, the end is so close that you don’t mind. The best way to ensure the day goes smoothly is to plan.The more you know about how things are going to progress, the better. One thing to note is that there are some things you can do yourself, and some things you most definitely can’t. It’s important you know which is which. How else can you get things right?
Let’s look first at the things you can do. These are going to be a huge help, because you don’t have to rely on anyone else. You don’t have to book an appointment with yourself or wait until a particular time. You can get on and get to work! One thing you can do is, of course, the packing. In fact, nobody but you can tackle this one. You can also stock your boxes. Moving companies do provide them for you, but they come at a cost. Where possible, find your own. Ask at local shops, and see if your friends have any hiding away. Then, get to work.
It’s also down to you to develop a packing system that works.Your best bet is to take things step by step. Make sure to keep a pen with you, and write down which room each box needs to go in. Doing this will save you an enormous amount of hassle at the other end! Else, you’ll spend the first days in your new home searching through never ending boxes.
As we mentioned, there are a few things you can’t do. Yes, you may have packed yourself. But, there’s no way you can get everything to your new home. For one thing, there’s going to be some heavy lifting involved. This is not a one-woman job. Plus, you’re going to need a van big enough to carry everything. That’s why you need to contact a company like Chess Moving to do that part for you. Having a few hands on board will be a huge help. Plus, you’ll be able to rest easy that your belongings are in the hands of the professionals.
If you’re not keen on hiring a company, you could ask around any friends who have vans. Then, ask you other friends, or family members, to provide some extra pairs of hands. Bear in mind, though, that your friends may not have done this before. You won’t be able to sit back and know that your belongings are safe as can be. On the plus side, this does mean you have hands on deck for helping unpack at the other end. Although, that’s one of the things you can do yourself. And, in all honesty, it may be easiest if you do!
