Searching for the one and having a hard time choosing? of their apartment, but cannot pick a particular one. Moving out from your place is one thing. But packing your things is another and more stressful in every manner, especially when you do not have a well -thought of plan. Here are some tips to consider to make this a stress-free activity.
What and How to pack?
Back then, when I moved from one apartment to another, I ended up exhausted, due to the things that were accumulated over the years that needed to be transferred. Hence, the idea of shifting homes scares me. But my view on changing residence has since taken a 360- turn, and now I welcome it with open arms. This happened when we had to move from our old house due to flooding during the rainy season. During that move, I learned that having a checklist and knowing the things that needed to be packed in groups helped me a lot to save time and effort. We started packing our own personal things leaving a week’s supply of clothes and toiletries. Then we packed other necessities as well. I have learned to use old garments in packing kitchen ware and old containers to pack small tools. Hence, we were able to save money. We made use of containers like traditional boxes, gym bags and eco bags. Always remember to check if all packing materials are available and ready. Be organized on the things you will pack and have a list that shows the number of containers to be moved and what it contains in general. Label each box properly to indicate whether it contains breakable items or not. Last but not least, check your moving company’s rules on handling and shipping your things. Ask whether they offer insurance on the goods or charge extra, if you want them delivered immediately.
Check what they offer aside from moving services
There are companies that do the moving on their own. Others connect you to suitable moving companies that fit your needs. It pays to check the services they offer. Validate their existence and whether or not they are authorized to operate as a moving company. They might also offer other services aside from moving services like packing and unpacking services and even storage services.
Be Alert and Ask Questions
One thing I can advise you is to be cautious and don’t be afraid to ask questions. This is your right as their customer. It is better to ask than be unaware of how they do things, and of other services that go with the amount that you will be paying them. Make conversation with your mover during the process to either give further instructions or to ask on options they offer to their customers aside from the moving services they normally provide.
