Taking the steps to prepare for your move can substantially help you to simplify your process and minimize the stress you may experience. Our team at Besst Realty can help you to find your right home. Once you have found your home with us, it will be time to prepare for your move. Here are a few tips to help you get prepared for your moving process.
Defrost your Freezer
It is important to provide your freezer with enough time to defrost and dry before your move. This generally means that you have to defrost your freezer at least 24 hours prior to moving time. Ensure it is unplugged and able to dry before you try to move your appliance.
Decluttering is one of the most beneficial steps that you can take prior to your move. When you take some time to go through your belongings, you will be able to get rid of anything you no longer need. The fewer items you have to move, the easier your moving process will be. You may want to consider having a garage or yard sale to earn some extra money to help with the move!
Gather Moving Supplies
When you intend to move, it will be important to gather your moving supplies. Ensure you have plenty of boxes, packing tape, and other moving supplies. This will prevent any disruptions from impacting your packing process when you begin to pack up your belongings.
Measure your Furniture
Measuring your furniture can provide you with multiple benefits for the move. When you measure your furniture, you will be able to ensure that it can fit through your new door. This will also help you to plan thoroughly for where you intend to place your furniture in the new property.
Label your Boxes
When you start packing your belongings, it will be important to label each box. There are several things that you want to include on your label. Ensure that you mark what is inside of each box, where each box should be placed, and whether the box contains fragile items or not. It may also be useful to indicate which side of the box should be facing up.
When you intend to move, you will likely want to ensure that you have your prescriptions filled within the last week before the move. This will help to prevent you from running out of your important medications when you are in the middle of the moving process.
Pack a Suitcase
It is unlikely that you will want to immediately start unpacking the moment you finish an exhausting day of moving. Due to this, it is extremely beneficial to ensure that you pack a suitcase with the essentials you will need for the first few days after your move. This survival kit should include things like a few changes of clothes and personal hygiene items, like a toothbrush.
