Guide to a good move

Moving house can be very stressful and overwhelming but if you take the time to organise everything before moving day, the process will go a lot smoother.

1: Start Early

Moving is the perfect time to rid yourself of clutter. You can do this by getting rid of all of the things you don’t use but have still held on to. This will make your move lighter and quicker.  Before you start packing up your house you should go through your things and decide what you really need to bring with you to your new home.

You should also begin to pack early by packing away the things that you know you wont be using until after your move. If you get these things out of the way early it will ease the work load closer to the move.

2: Transportation:

You should decide early if you will be moving yourself or hiring a company to help you to do it. No need to mention is the easiest way to go. With LogiDeals you will be able to find the cheapest moving company without any hassle. If you are moving yourself you should make sure you have enough trucks/vans to load up all of your boxes.

3: Sort out A Box of Necessities:

Before you move you should pack a box with all of the things you'll need as soon as you move in to your new home such as; Toilet paper, Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Soap, Light bulbs, Sheets and Towels. This will save you having to rummage through boxes looking for the necessities.

4: Label Your Boxes:

Keep items from each room together and label them according to where they are from. This will help to keep you organized and will make unpacking in your new home easier and quicker. You should also label boxes that contain fragile items so you will know to be careful when moving them.

5: Organize Your Utilities:

You should make sure to turn all of the utilities in your new home before you move in. You should contact the gas, electric, phone, water and cable companies before you move in so they are ready and waiting for you.

You should also ensure that you don’t have the utilities turned off in your old home until after you leave because you will need electricity while you are moving things out of the house and you also might have to make some last minutes calls before your move.

6: Learn Your New Address:

Take the time to learn your new address before you move in. By learning it early you'll be able to give people your new address and also give it to the postal service. Working out directions to your new house would also be a helpful thing to do so you can tell people how to find your house.

Moving house doesn’t have to be stressful so hopefully these guidelines will help you with your move.
