Moving is not an easy process as well as one of the hardest decisions. When moving to a new apartment, you should think in advance about where the furniture and appliances will be located in order to quickly orient the movers and reduce their work time. Look up the moving company reviews and contact with them for a moving Quote. Try to use nowadays tools like approximate moving cost calculator or similar apps which can help you to save money.
Importance of taking photos
Photos before moving are a way to try on a design project for an existing apartment, if it is going to be renovated, do not lose anything in the process of packing and transportation, and save your nerves. At photos, items that do not fit (or no longer fit) into the interior will be clearly visible — and you can part with a nightstand, vase, or collection of glasses from travel without sentiment, leaving photos of them as a memento.
Packing when moving
The key to a successful move is properly packed things. The weight of one box should not exceed 12 kilograms, otherwise, its movement will be problematic, and the cardboard itself is unlikely to withstand more weight. All detergents, flammable or toxic liquids should be carefully closed and Packed in polyethylene, preferably hermetically. In addition, use the printer and sticker sheets to print out a detailed description of what is in the box. Develop your own tagging system. For example, the name of the room comes first, followed by the name of the content, and then, if necessary, a list of items. When you move, it will save you a lot of time searching for Cutlery or cosmetics.
Movers can provide additional services: as a rule, the cost of their services includes packing things, disassembly/assembly of furniture and assistance in loading. For an additional fee, they can take old household appliances, furniture, and construction debris to be disposed of. Discuss these issues in advance.
For those who are very bad at sorting boxes, you can use this technique: write a large date on the unassembled boxes — for example, in a month. And agree with yourself that if you do not disassemble the box before this date and do not put things in their places, then it is sent to friends or put out in the yard for others. Because if you haven’t used things in a month, you probably don’t need them.
Distribute the boxes in the back of the truck in blocks, depending on which room they are intended for. For example, clothes and hangers – in a box for the bedroom, dishes and tablecloths – in the kitchen box.
