The best advice I can give for any move – whether to a new home, a new room, or a new office – is to start early. Have your moving date firmly in your mind and start sorting, packing, and labeling early. Starting the process early will allow you to handle any unprecedented problems that arise and eliminate them before moving day approaches.
Get your moving supplies early too; the earlier you have your moving supplies means you can start packing earlier. And the earlier you start packing, the more time you have to get additional supplies if you run out. It’s all a cycle that feeds into itself; the earlier you start, the more prepared you’ll be and the less stressed you’ll feel during both the packing and moving processes.
Get rid of whatever you can before you move. Be ruthless about it too. Give away, sell, or throw out any items that you don’t need to take with you. It will make the move much quicker, smoother, and far less stressful. Plus, it will allow you to shed older items that you’ve been hoarding for far too long. Get rid of them and take the opportunity to start fresh!
As uninviting as they may be, try to tackle the messier areas and rooms first. There is always that area in every house; the area that has the most junk and 搬傢俬 layers of scary looking mess that you’ve never really bothered with. Well now that you’re moving, you have the perfect opportunity. Jump into that scary looking room and – though the very thought may make you shudder – get down and dirty and get rid of those dust collectors.
Try to source proper packing boxes and tape rather than flimsy materials. Normal cardboard boxes and tape will be fine for lighter and less delicate boxes of items but it is always recommended to buy proper materials for heavy and fragile items. Yes, they may cost you more than typical cardboard boxes, but specialised packing boxes will keep your precious belongings safer during the move and you’ll be thankful you invested in them if there are any bumps or knocks during the move.
And label everything. Make it easier for yourself and others by labeling boxes. This will give clear instructions about their contents. Label whether they are fragile or heavy, and label what rooms they belong too. Just grab a permanent marker and write away!
