Finally found the home you’re looking for? Congratulations! It’s a very exciting time, we know. But relocating or shifting into a new home isn’t as easy as it looks. In fact, it can be very stressful. There’s so much to worry about – breaking the bank, your furniture, and maybe even your back!
Good thing we put together these tips for moving into a new home. Read on to find out what they are!
Pick your muhurat
Lay around with potential moving days and see which day works best for you. Plan this well in advance so that you can move it around in case something comes up. If you’re busy working, weekends are your best but if you do find the time, pick a weekday instead. There is lesser chaos and it’s significantly cheaper in general.
Box them up
Take a cue from Mary Kondo and organise your belongings category-wise, instead of going room-by-room. You can pack these in boxes and label them accordingly! Be it shoes, clothes, books, lamps or blankets – just sort them in different boxes. Hunt for those electronics cartons or pay a visit to the local alcohol store. They usually have used boxes lying around, so strike a deal with them!
Get rid of things
No, not everything, but you’ve got to let the unused and unnecessary items go. The lesser you have to pack, the easier your move will be. That coffee maker that you’ve used only once, that cute jacket you’ve never worn or furniture you don’t have space for – sell, donate or throw them! Plus you’ll always have the choice to rent furniture! And if you rent from Furlenco, relocation is completely hassle-free!
You might think that you have everything you need to pack, but there are always going to be things you miss out on. So sit down with your family and get your heads together to make that master shopping list. Packing tape, boxes, paper, extra screws, extra bags, cleaning items, etc – put it all down. Then make that one last trip and start preparing for your moving day.
Learn a few tricks
When we’re talking about tips to move into a new home, think about every little thing that’ll help you save time and money. Snap a picture of your electronics so that you know which wire goes where, bubble wrap your fragile items and pack them with clothes for extra padding, get coloured packing tape, and use rubber bands to keep pots and lids together. Tricks like these will help you save a lot of time and prevent damage.
So there you have it! Keep these pointers in mind and plan ahead to make your moving as hassle-free as you can. Happy moving!
