Preparing for a move can be complicated, particularly if you have not moved recently. However, Legend Furniture Removals aims to make the experience as simple as possible for your. Here are some of the tips we have learned along the way in our years as a residential furniture removals company.
Sell, Donate or Give Away
When you decide that you want to move, it's time to start cleaning your house of unnecessary junk and unused items. Now is the time to make the decision to make a fresh start without the clutter.
Of course, one man's junk is another man's treasure, so use these questions as a guideline whether you should give away, donate or sell an item:
If you answered 'no' to all the questions, give it away or toss it away - the choice is yours.
Sort Out Your Documents and Transfers
You'll find that a lot of paperwork is involved in moving to a different city or neighbouring state. Here's a basic list of things to take care of:
You can use Legend Furniture Removals' professional expertise if you don't want to do all the packing yourself. However, if you decide that you want to do some of the packing ahead of time, these tips should make it easier for you.
Once you have removed all the clutter, it is time to assess how many boxes you will need and start collecting the boxes. At the same time, get some tissue paper to pack between your clothes, books and breakable items. Visit the stationery shop to buy packing tape, packing bubbles, colour coded labels, bubble wrap and a pad to make lists of items and boxes.
Moving house can be confusing at the best of time; with estimates, papers, receipts, documents, contact details and more required to make this happen, it can easily turn to chaos. Keep a moving file or small box where you store all your records and move-related documents to ensure everything is in a central location. Throw in an extra set of basic tools, packing tape, labels, utility knife and markers, just to be safe.
In the two weeks leading up to move day
The pressure is on and it's time to start packing up items you will not need to use in the next couple of weeks. Get it out of the way now because procrastination will only add to the stress of move day. Being prepared will not only save you time closer to the time, but it will save costs on your move.
These tips should make for a smooth and relaxed move!
