5 Strategies to Make this the Most Seamless Relocation Ever

Moving can be overwhelming and stressful. It requires lot of physical and mental effort, which can leave you exhausted and stressed. There are certain things you need to do and factors to consider in order having a smooth move. Read on to find out what exactly you need to do.

 

 

Plan Carefully

You need to plan carefully, even if you are moving within the same state. You should plan at least one month before the moving day. Planning earlier gives you enough time to sort out your belongings and make all the necessary arrangements with the moving company. When planning, come up with a list of the things you will need in your new home and location. Prioritize things that you cannot afford to miss in your new home. After that, create a list of the things that would be nice to have but are not a must-have.

 

Stay Organized

Much of the stress that comes with moving is mostly because you are disorganized. Come up with a schedule highlighting every step you will take right from the planning process to the moving day. Highlight every role each member of the family will play in the moving process, including all the tasks that will be performed. Also, make sure you avail all the packaging materials to avoid delays during the moving day. When you stay organized, you do things in a systematic and smooth way. This not only simplifies the moving, but it also saves a lot of time.

 

Perform Some Background Check on the Moving Company

Before you hire a moving company, you need to do a background check on them to see whether they have what it takes to guarantee a smooth move. Check their website to see how many years they have been in business and what kind of services they offer. Visit online review platforms such as Angie’s List and Better Business Bureau to see their ratings as well as customers’ reviews. Also, ask the company to show you proof of insurance. Hiring a company that is insured provides security for your belongings. In case damages occur during transit, you can be rest assured that you will be compensated.

 

Create a Budget

From hiring the moving company to purchasing enough boxes and packaging tools, Moving can consume a lot of money. Make sure you have a budget in place so that you can know how much you are likely to spend. This will enable you to adjust your finances accordingly. Make sure the budget covers everything from the planning process to the transition period.

 

Keep Kids and Pets Away

There is no way you can move smoothly if you have kids and pets around. Kids and pets are so playful. They are likely to play with dangerous items or find themselves in the wrong areas. Get

someone to stay with the kids briefly during the moving day. This could be a child care service or a close relative. Doing so will prevent them from getting injured.

What to Pack in Your Moving Essentials Box

Though the prospect of living in a new place can fill you with joy and exuberance, the process of moving itself is not so exciting. The act of packing up your entire life and transferring it to another city or locale includes a great many challenges. One of the more serious puzzles you will have to solve is what to include in your moving essentials or first night box.

 

 

What is An Essentials Box?

This is the box that will contain all that you need to keep working and continue functioning until your household goods arrive. You cannot do without a first night box if you are moving cross country. But you may also need one if you cannot move immediately into your new place and are forced to put your stuff in storage.

 

Think Through the Essentials

You are not used to thinking about the articles of clothing, toiletries, and other items that you require every day. This is probably the hardest part about determining what should go into a moving essentials box. It is best to begin drawing up a list of what is to go into this box before you do anything else associated with the move. Put the list somewhere safe and accessible, so that it does not accidently get packed up. As you think of things, add them to it. Just before you start packing take a final look at the list and deposit the items that you need in the first night box.

 

Hygiene Items

The first items to think of for your box are those having to do with hygiene. Soap, wash clothes, toothpaste, tooth brushes, shaving cream and razors, mouth wash, shampoo, and any other sort of washing creams or liquids you use. Do not forget towels, bathrobes, and shower rugs.

 

Grooming Products

Next, you should move on to personal grooming products: combs, hair brushes, hair dryers, under arm deodorant, after shave, perfume, lotion, all other body creams, and make-up kits.

 

Clothing

Clothes are the next items on the agenda. Take enough undergarments to last at least a week. You may need to do one wash before the rest of your stuff arrives. If the box is big enough you should be able to take 3 or 4 shirts, and a couple of pairs of jeans, or one pair of jeans and a pair of slacks. If it is cold where you are going, you should also pack a scarf and gloves. And don’t forget socks and your work (business) shoes. If it is your intention to limit yourself to only one box, you may have to leave out your work-out gear.

 

If you are a working professional, it is best to choose a few suits and transport them to your new location by handbag. You can put your undershirts in these bags as well.

 

This should be enough to get you through the first few days in your new home. It is unwise to include kitchenware in your essentials box. The better plan is to use paper plates and utensils to eat until your household goods arrive.
