Stop Being Surprised on Move-in Day

Stop Being Surprised on Move-in Day

Don’t get caught in any moving mishaps this April Fool’s Day! It would help if you didn’t feel foolish because you lacked a good game plan for a smooth move. Save yourself the stress and follow these simple rules.

Make a Schedule

Many don’t plan with a schedule or throw the schedule out when moving day comes. Make a schedule and stick to it to get everything done on time. Packing and unpacking an entire house in a day is best done with good organization. Plan a timeline for everything from packing up specific rooms to defrosting your fridge. Use this sample comprehensive schedule from moving.com.

Pack an Essentials Bag

When you move into a new place, you may not be able to unpack everything right away. You’ll likely be living out of boxes for a few days or even weeks, so having an essential bag will help make your first few days there easier. This should include clothes for different occasions, like work, gym, happy hour, etc. You should also include toiletries like your toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, and any other thing you will need. Trulia has a complete essentials list you can use as a guide.

Don’t Forget the Final Walk-Through

After everything is in your car and you are ready for move-out, take a walk through the house. There are many places people forget to look for things. Double-check your basement, attic, and crawl space for any boxes that you may have forgotten. Check every closet and every hidden spot behind doors to make sure you don’t leave anything behind.

Stay Safe

The worst thing you can do on moving day is hurt yourself. Moving in unsafe conditions can throw you wildly off-schedule. Moving heavy appliances can lead to a pulled muscle or even worse if you fall with the object on top of you. Skip the emergency room and let the professionals take care of your bigger objects if you can. If you must move them yourself, here are some suggestions we can offer you that may help. Also, be on the lookout for dangerous weather, such as rain or snow. Look over these tips from My Moving Reviews to get yourself acquainted with the best tips for moving in rough weather conditions.
