Poll the average person and ask them what they think of having to move to a new residence and the answer wonâ€™t be all peaches and sunshine. Itâ€™s certain that almost can agree that having to move can be a time-consuming necessity, but nonetheless itâ€™s a necessity. Settling on a new place can be a chore in and of itself, and having to plan, pack and unpack is on deck.
And procrastinating wonâ€™t get you any further, either. In fact, having a plan in place and the motivation to see through it is what separates an easy move from a loathsome one. With that said, below are a few basic tips to making the most from your move.
The Plan Before The Plan
Right off the bat, you must decide if you have the time and energy to do the move yourself or if you should hire a professional to do the task instead. Thereâ€™s probably an abundance of moving companies around your area, but if you have some spacious trucks and a few helping hands to do if for you, thatâ€™s another option. Just make sure youâ€™ve got this one decided before doing anything else.
Lists, Lists And More Lists!
Grab the nearest legal pad and start surveying your possessions. Make a note of every one, from the most fragile to the sturdiest. What this does is allow you to see just how much clutter you have in your home and youâ€™ll know whether or not a garage sale is in order, or better yet, you can donate them to local charities.
