The Moving Date

Secondly, select an appropriate moving date, one of the first tasks that need to be taken care of is organising packing and moving house. Good moving date is always great for any homeowner because it allows them enough time to complete the move safely and on time. Do not allow yourself to be rushed or postponing the move, stick to the suitable date that you have scheduled with your removalists.

Planning & Preparing Items

Thirdplanning and preparing items into boxes is a major step and categorising your items into boxes with clear labels e.g kitchen appliances, will make it easier when the time comes to unpack into your new space. If you categorise your items and furniture into labelled boxes and sections, it will be easy to track which boxes need to be packed and when, so you can avoid getting overwhelmed and delayed in your packing timeline.

Secure Furniture

Fourthsecure your items and furniture with the appropriate materials. This is critical because all of the items in your new home will need to be properly transported into the new home or office. For example, if you are shipping your piano into a new area, then it will need to be covered by insurance. Likewise, make sure that all fragile items are wrapped in newspaper, towels or bubble wrap and that all categorised boxes are covered with heavy-duty tape, check that the packing tape is intact and not damaged.

Arrange Your Paperwork

Fifth and final point, make a folder for all required documentation. These may include a moving order, an instruction manual for the move, a copy of your credit report and certificate of insurance of the move and larger items, for example, the piano. All of these items will prove to be very helpful during your move. By creating a list of these documents, you will ensure that they are all there and accounted for at the end of your relocation. This can not only help you in the short term but it will also help you tremendously in the long run.
