Planning ahead is a great idea to avoid any unnecessary complications during moving, as it can be a very stressful process. Even more so when you have to get it all done at the last minute. If you find yourself in such a situation, here are a few last minute tips on how to go about it.
Plan your packing
Plan what you need to pack and when to do it. If you want to make sure you don’t miss anything, don’t go all over the place picking up things – try packing room by room. Don’t start with the things you’re most likely to still use before the move, you’ll just waste time on getting them out again later on. If you don’t need to transport all your things at once, start with the essentials. And remember to list the contents of the boxes on them, in this way you’ll have an easier time unpacking.
Prepare the supplies
For the packing to go smoothly, try to gather all the necessary supplies early on. You’ll need the basics like boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, and tape. You can also prepare a piece of paper and a pen to keep a list of all the things you’ve already packed. Use bold coloured markers to number the boxes – it’ll let you easily keep track of your things and not lose anything.
Schedule the move
Get everything ready for the moving day. Remember to rent a car that will be able to transport all your belongings and find someone to help you with the heavy lifting. You may also decide to hire a professional removal company. They’ll have all the necessary experience and equipment to provide the best moving service possible and you won’t have to worry about the logistics.
Simply planning removals to Brentford or Pinner isn’t the end of a moving process. You should familiarise yourself with your new neighbourhood as soon as possible. Maybe you know someone there, who’ll show you around? If not – it’s a great occasion to make new friends.
