Moving can bring out the best and the worst in us. While it’s exciting to start the next chapter of our lives, it can also be extremely stressful and overwhelming to organize and create a moving plan that is efficient, especially when the move came out of the blue. In today’s blog post, the team at Weebble Junk Removal and Hauling is going to go over a few tips that can make last-minute moves just a little bit smoother. From ways to narrow down the amount of clutter you’re packing to tips that will make it easier to avoid mistakes, we hope to make your last-minute move just a little bit easier. Let’s get started.
Ask For Help
Last-minute moves can put you in a time crunch, which is exactly why you want to make sure you ask for help. Whether you have a couple of weeks or just a couple of days, the more help you can get the better. Reach out to your family and friends and see if any of them are available to help you with packing up boxes or loading up the moving truck. When it gets to the point of having a time frame that you need to be moved out by, you’ll be thankful for any help that you can get.
If you aren’t finding anyone that’s able to help you with your move, you may want to consider hiring a professional to get the job done. While a moving company may cost more initially, it will make all the difference in how smoothly the move goes.
Take Care of Valuable & Fragile Items
One of the many concerns that come with moving is the chance of breaking or ruining one of the valuable or fragile items that you have in your home. While last-minute moves may cause you to rush during the packing process, you don’t want your valuables to suffer either. For that reason, it’s always good to set aside your fragile or valuable items so that they don’t end up damaged. At that point, you can not only provide them with the attention and proper packaging that they need to make the move safely, but you can ensure they are transported in a way that keeps them from breaking.
Get Materials Early On
The moment that you find out that you are going to need to move, start to purchase the materials that you’ll need to make the move possible. Even if that means purchasing lots of boxes, tape, and moving blankets before you even find your next home, you’ll be thankful. The primary reason that you want to do this is because it will take the pressure off you down the road. While it may not seem like something that would make a big difference during a move, you’d be surprised just how much stress this will keep from happening.
If you have the packing materials that you need early on, you might as well start packing during your downtime. Again, it may seem like this wouldn’t make a big difference, but the reality is that the sooner that you get your belongings packed up, the easier the rest of the move will be. In reality, one of the most time-consuming parts of moving is the process of packing up an entire home. It’s surprising how long it takes to get everything in boxes, so you might as well start early and get this portion of your move taken care of as quickly as possible.
Schedule Junk Removal Services
When you get ready to move, you start to realize just how much junk you’ve acquired over the years. Whether it is your garage, shed, or basement holding things that you no longer need, what better time to get rid of it? Junk removal services make it easy to get rid of old furniture, clothes, toys, kitchen appliances, and the like. If you’re ready to move, you definitely want to make sure that you take some time to schedule a reputable junk removal company.
