Removal tips and Faq

Preparing

  • Regard moving as an opportunity to get rid of belongings you no longer need. Consider making ”donate” and “sell” piles in each room for things you could do without.
  • People have a tendency to keep outdated paperwork for a very long time. Realise that paper is very heavy. Do yourself a favour and get rid of any outdated documents prior to moving..
  • Make sure you have a generous supply of packaging tape, scissors, markers and labels.
  • Defrost your refrigerator in time for moving day.

Packing and labeling

  • Label boxes on all sides so you can see what it contains in a stack without having to move everything around.
  • Clearly mark boxes containing fragile goods.
  • Make sure you have a generous supply of packaging tape, scissors, markers and labels.
  • Pack a suitcase with clothes and toiletries like you’re going on a trip for a few days.

Moving out

  • Cleaning up, We all have things we do not need. When you move, you have a rare opportunity to rife through your miscellany and make a concerted effort to de-junk your life. It may seem like an arbitrary figure, but it’s a figure that has served this seasoned mover well.
  • Choose a moving company- Do you have an army of helpers at the ready? Do you have a reliable truck sorted? Do you have enough beer and pizza to satiate your helpers? If not, or your move is too much for your friends and family to handle, the best way for planning a house move is to book a moving company.
  • Packing is the biggest headache inducing activity and takes up the majority of tips onpacking and moving house. When it comes to packing furniture, it’s important to get all needed materials (and make sure they’re not low-quality) and pack in waves.
  • Change your address - There are a number of logistical problems with a move, and utilities are a common culprit on this house moving guide. Before you move, change the address of your documents and all your utilities.

Moving in

  • Start with cleaning up every room. Unfortunately, it’s always about cleaning, otherwise results won’t be good. Hopefully, you prepared a box of cleaning detergents beforehand so you don’t have to walk around wondering where they are packed.
  • Open box of essentials first. Open it now and find all your essential items, such as toilet paper, toothbrush, snacks, a change of clothes, and anything you can’t get by without.
  • Arrange the furniture. It would have been a lot better to tell the movers where to place each piece upon arriving, since it’s usually part of the service. It would have been a real help unpacking after a move. But if you haven’t made a plan for that beforehand and the furniture is just put wherever, now is the time to arrange it.
  • Roll the carpets. Carpets come in last, since they would only get in the way if we placed them in the beginning.
