The Start-to-Finish Guide for Moving to a New Place
Moving sucks. There is really nothing around it, but it can be much more tolerable and much less stressful. Here is a look at our best recommendations for easier and more efficient traffic.
Much movement usually occurs over the next few months, and while the experience and needs of each vary a bit, a lot of work involved in the movement is the same, no matter who you are. There is a lot to do, so you can jump:
Management of labeling and inventory
There is a lot to do to prepare your move: set up mail routing, change their utilities, buy packing supplies, and so on. The movement itself is actually the easy part because it will spend most of their time packing and unpacking. If you want everything to go as smoothly as possible, you need to prepare well. It is a long and detailed process, but ultimately make their movement is much simpler and less stressful.
The transfer of data
Before relocating, make sure that you know all the utilities that are responsible and make the transfers. The more you can make the best call, because sometimes some utilities will not be able to leave the next day to make the change. Another change you can make in advance is to complete a change of address, you can do it online. If you change your address online, make sure you have a credit card to use your current address as the billing address, since this is how the postal service checks the request.
Find Packaging Supplies for Cheap
There are plenty of places to buy packing supplies, but boxes and tape can add some money. You can avoid this extra cost hitting one of many places that distribute free boxes. Most retailers receive a lot of messages, but your best bet is to contact the furniture stores. While your average retailer may be able to provide used boxes, you will be able to find a greater variety of sizes of furniture stores. Make sure you call at least a week before when you want to start packing, however, that the disposition of the case is not necessarily a daily task. If your friends are moving forward, another way to get used boxes, it is asked to give it to you when they end. You can also find boxes in the office where you work or ask a friend to bring back the boxes are in the office. For more ideas, check out these tips on self-rating motion boxes.
The disadvantage of reuse boxes is that they are not always in the best conditions. If you want new cases (and other packing supplies), you can get a good deal on ULINE. They offer mobile kits and delivered to your door. In general, I do not like to connect a single place, but I used ULINE for my last four movements and have always been useful and inexpensive. One recommendation, however, is to avoid the cheap band. When wrapped, a good film is surprisingly important, and the tape obtained in the ULINE kits is far from good enough.
In addition to packing supplies, you will want some tools for the actual movement. Is quite cheap to rent a pushcart doll and furniture, two things you want to have, a truck rental company, but if you have room to store them in your new location, not much more expensive to buy them. You can usually find these items by about twice the cost of rent in online retailers, hardware stores and discount clubs like Costco. When purchasing, just be sure to get a hand truck that can handle at least 150 pounds. And it has a very solid structure construction. Thick and solid wheels are also an advantage as they do not have to worry about deflation during the movement. When the movement is complete, a good cutting box is also useful. It is an inexpensive tool and makes things a little easier than a pair of scissors or a regular knife.
