Long-distance moves can sometimes take you from one climate to another. When you are moving from somewhere warm to somewhere cold, there are several things that you should consider for the move. My blog will provide you with information that will help you get through this big change with few problems. You will learn about how to pack up your things to protect them from the change in temperatures and what you should pack in your vehicle so that you have it readily accessible while you make the trip from your old home all the way to the new one.
After your parents have both passed, you and your siblings may need to decide what to do with all of the belongings that were not willed to anyone in particular. You may also have to make a decision about what to do with the house when your parents have left their home to you and your siblings. Most siblings choose to sell the home and split the profits among themselves. If you want to sell the home quickly, you need to work fast to remove all of the furniture and other items your parents left behind. Here are three feasible options to help you clear out the house, prepare it for sale, and figure out what to do with all of the stuff you have removed.
Overnight Moving and Packing
There are a few moving companies that will work overnight. Some moving services in larger cities may spend more than eight hours packing and loading everything onto a truck for you. Once everything is on the truck, the moving company employees will then ship the truckload anywhere you want and unpack it, even if it takes half the night. If you can find and hire an "overnight" moving and packing company, you have a large portion of the work already taken care of. The next step is figuring out where to put all of the stuff from your parents' house.
Squeezing It Into Your Garage and/or the Garages of Your Siblings
If you and your siblings have enough room in your garages for all of the stuff from your parents' house, then the movers can deposit items at each address. You may even have the movers pack the truck in such a way so as to aid this process (i.e., the items going to the last house at the front of the truck, while the items going to the first house at the very back of the truck by the doors, etc.). If the movers are working through the early evening to late night hours, you will have to coordinate with your siblings about the order in which they receive your parents' items into your/their garages.
Stuffing Everything into Storage Facilities
If your parents had acquired an exceptional amount of stuff and you know there is no way you and your siblings are going to be able to store it all in your garages, you might consider storage facilities like Redondo Van & Storage or others. If you cannot manage to sell your parents' former home in less than a year and there is no way you and your siblings can store stuff, it may be easier and cost-effective to store all of the items in a storage facility. That will give you time to sort through, disperse, sell and/or donate various items while attempting to sell the house at the same time. The best part about this arrangement is that you may be able to hire a moving company that has its own storage facilities, and then the movers can just transport all of the stuff to the facility, unload it and lock it up for you.Share
