08/19/2021, New York, NY // PRODIGY: Feature Story //
Moving to a new neighborhood or city can be stressful as well as an emotional experience. After all, you are essentially leaving behind a familiar space and starting over. But don’t let the logistics of relocation keep you from feeling excited about starting a new chapter in your life. With timely planning and a few moving hacks, you can make the whole process a lot easier.
Here are a few tips for a smoother and time-saving move. Let’s get started.
- Don’t Procrastinate
Even if you live in a studio apartment, moving houses is much more time-consuming than you would think. Therefore, leaving everything to the last minute is a disaster waiting to happen. Whether you are moving in three weeks or months, you should start planning now. The earlier you start, the easier it will be.
2. Make a Moving Plan
It’s always good to make a plan. From calling moving companies to purchasing packing supplies, note down everything you need to do. You should also make an estimated timeline to ensure all tasks are completed on time. Making a detailed plan will alleviate most of your moving anxiety.
3. Start Decluttering
We all tend to accumulate a lot of things without even realizing it. Rather than packing everything and making the move expensive, start by decluttering. If you have junk furniture, appliances, and other items lying around, allow Dispatch Junk Removal to help you out. Involving professionals is a great way to save time and energy.
4. Talk To Utility Providers
From electricity to WiFi, you need to get in touch with various utility providers about your move. If the providers also operate in your new neighborhood, you can simply transfer your utilities. Otherwise, you will have to cancel utility plans and look for new providers.
5. Book Moving Services
If you have limited things, you can consider a DIY relocation. However, lifting heavy furniture and moving delicate items are best left to professional movers. A moving company can take care of the heavy lifting, literally and figuratively. Do your research and compare quotes before choosing a company.
6. Get High-Quality Supplies
Packing supplies are not an ideal area for cost-cutting. Poor quality boxes and cushioned sheets make your belongings susceptible to damage during transit. So don’t hesitate to splurge on high-quality packing supplies. You can also consider buying second-hand packing supplies, which is a cost-effective and sustainable option.
7. Pack Non-Essential Rooms
As soon as you finalize the move, you can start packing non-essential rooms like guest rooms or garages. This will make packing a lot less overwhelming.
8. Label Everything
Unpacking is just as time-consuming as packing. But you can make it significantly convenient by labeling every box. Take a marker and write down the room where the box belongs. Additionally, you can also write down everything it contains so you can keep track of all your belongings.
9. Prepare an Essentials Box
After an exhausting day of packing and moving, rummaging through various boxes is the last thing you want to do. That’s why we suggest packing an essentials box or bag. Use this box to store important documents, a change of clothes, toiletries, snacks, spare keys, scissors, kids/pet toys, and so on. This way you don’t have to worry about immediately unpacking.
10. Carefully Choose Moving Date
Moving at the end of the month or on weekends tends to be an expensive affair. If possible, go for a weekday in the middle of the month. This will ensure greater savings when it comes to hiring moving companies.
With careful organization, you can make the entire moving experience manageable and affordable. Hopefully, the aforementioned tips help you pack, move, and unpack efficiently.
