Moving to your new home can be exciting but stressful at the same time since you’re not just moving a couple of pieces of furniture but an entire household. To help you minimise stress, plan the process early and take note of some of our helpful tips.
Assess how much stuff will fit in the new home’s space
Consider the space of each room in your new house and assess if certain furniture can be placed in specific areas. Have a layout or blueprint of your new home and plan what goes where.
Pack your belongings one room at a time
It can be daunting to even start packing an entire room, even more so if you haven’t planned which space to consider first. You can start with your old kitchen since you are more likely to find kitchen accessories that are no longer usable and have a lot of sorting to do.
After the kitchen, proceed in dismantling your living room’s furniture to make it easier for the removals company to move them out. Tape the parts underneath the furniture and label them by numbers so you won’t have to be confused when assembling them back again.
With your home office, back up your data and start your virtual move. You can either choose to have an external hard drive or sign up for online data storage. Reduce the clutter by shredding any unnecessary paper. If you’re hesitant to discard a document, you can always scan them and keep a digital copy.
Sorting the things in your bedroom can also take too much time, so it is advisable to place them in order when you have spare time. Deciding on the what you need and what you could give away or donate can also help you downsize.
Pack the essentials
Don’t forget to stock up on the essentials so you won’t have a hard time finding basic necessities like toilet paper, toothbrushes and pyjamas in your new home. Not having coffee in the morning when you’re used to it can be aggravating and you wouldn’t want to start the day on a sour note.
