Are you planning on moving homes anytime soon? Is it because of a promotion or change of occupation? Or is it because of a change in your relationship? Regardless to the reason, does it still feel like being punished for a good thing?
It shouldn’t. Moving isn’t so hard and complicated if it’s done properly. How do you do that? That’s what we are here for. Read ahead for our expert tips and suggestions on packing up your home and moving homes like a pro!
Take inventory of everything around you.
Take a careful look at your home and things. Consider its size and the number of things you plan on taking with you to your new home. Consider your “moving budget” while you take inventory of all your things. Consider how soon you have to be settled once you arrive at your new home. All these things will help you out a great deal when you have to deal with the actual moving. Also, be sure about which friends are going to help you out if you opt to not use Dubai movers; most of them will probably not turn up after all.
Decide on how you’re going to move; make preparations for it.
Are you going to use house movers to move your things? If you are, then do a little research to find the best ones. Ask friends for recommendations. Most moving companies give you better rates if you inform them about your move well before the moving date. Also, check for movers who give you the services of packing and cleaning up. Both these services will come in handy; especially if you plan of selling your home after you move out. Read this article to find out more about house movers in Dubai.
Time to get rid of the old, the useless and the unnecessary.
Ever felt like your home is filled with things that you have no use for, but you still keep around just because you’re used to it being there? Or have you ever tried to arrange a room, and found stuff you don’t know just what to do with? Most probably, these are all unnecessary clutter. Use the house moving as an excuse to do a full house purging of all such things. The less things you have, the easier it is to pack, and the less you spend on transporting it!
Pack smartly; do it consciously.
Try to concentrate when packing your possessions. This means, no throwing in things into boxes haphazardly. Pack things of the same room together; and pack like things together. Use packing paper and bubble wrap on the fragile things. Pack books spine down and line those boxes with cling or plastic sheets. Use all available spaces like empty drawers and the fridge. And most importantly, mark each box with permanent markers; include a list of things in the side of each box.
Apart from this, invest on a good box cutter; trust us, this will make unboxing so much easier!
