Itís time to take that next step in lifeís big adventure. You just finalized your first home purchase, signed the lease on that trendy downtown apartment, or perhaps you’re downsizing to a senior living community. Youíre faced with condensing the contents of your current home into a series of boxes, crates, and containers AND transporting them to their new destination. Your flat screen TV, the sectional sofa, your heirloom chinaÖ where do you begin? Will this be a DIY effort, or should you call in the professionals? Whether youíre doing it yourself or hiring moving experts, everyone can agree on some key tips for success.
- ORGANIZATION: Organization with your moving strategy is essential. Plan it on paper. Pack according to final destination and room designation. What items will be moving? What items will need special considerations? For instance, an antique painting will require different materials to ensure safe transport.
- LABELING: Youíve organized your contents and now they’re consolidated into boxes. Label your boxes, including a brief description of contents and where the items should be placed (dining room, bedroom, etc.). Clearly mark boxes containing fragile items. Refer back to your moving plan to keep things orderly.
- USE PROPER MATERIALS: Using the correct packing materials can make a world of difference in ensuring your items arrive undamaged. Use original boxes, when possible, for moving electronics and computer components. Be aware of weight limits for boxes and avoid over packing. Take the time to procure adequate packing materials for your specific items.
