Preparing for a big move can be stressful, but with a few quick tips, your move can go much more smoothly. The following are some basic advice from the folks at Environmental Heat Solutions to help you with your move:
1.Get rid of junk. If you have an appliance or other technological item that doesn’t work, or any item that is expired, don’t bother taking it with you. These items are simply taking up room in your storage van and will later take up room in your new home.
2.Use small boxes for heavy objects. No one wants to carry a large bin full of books. While it may seem like you are not using space as effectively, packing books, weights, and heavy appliances into smaller boxes will allow you to move them more quickly and with less risk of injury.
3.Shred old personal documents that are no longer relevant, and free up the space for other items. If you do have important files and papers, make sure they are properly sorted and labeled so they don’t get lost in the move.
4.Keep clothing in your dresser drawers. If you need to take the drawers out and move them separately, that’s okay, just wrap the drawers with the clothes still in them. This will allow you to free up space in the moving van, save money on boxes, and saves you packing and unpacking time.
5.Get your possessions checked and treated for bed bugs. If you are moving out of an infested house or apartment, call a professional bed bug removal company to check your belongings and make sure you aren’t bringing bed bugs along with you to your new home.
