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.
Moving can be pretty stressful. The idea of taking every single thing you have and moving it to a new location can be a daunting task. You can ease your stress a bit by taking it one step at a time and packing certain items several weeks before your move, then packing other things every week up until the day before your move. See below for helpful tips to make your move a little less stressful.
Two Months Prior
These items should be packed up as early as possible before you move. If you don't have two months before your move, that's OK; just pack up these items first and get them out of the way.
One Month Prior
These are other items you probably aren't going to need over the next month.
Two Weeks Prior
Two weeks prior you can pack up an entire room that you may not necessarily use daily such as the office, basement and spare bedroom.
One Week Prior
This will be where you do the most packing, but you have most of the non-essential packing stuff out of the way.
One Day Prior
Most of your belongings should be gone by this point. Beds, mattresses and furniture should all be out or at least stripped and ready to move out of the house. If you plan on sleeping one last night in your old place, use sleeping bags and a blow up mattress.
Packing can be stressful, but if you space out the packing it can ease the stress a little. Be sure to use new boxes (so they hold up), place heavy items such as books in smaller boxes so they aren't as heavy, and invest in clothing boxes (with a rod included) so you can just hang up your closet clothing and hang your items up in your new home. Talk to a moving company, such as Affordable Transfer Co Inc., about what other types of moving boxes they may have to make packing a little easier.Share
