Are you planning to relocate to a new house? Moving to a new house is never an easy task – especially if you have no plan. The real hassle is in moving your belongings, and you just wish you could magically move everything at once. However, all you need for a successful house move is a plan – and this is where most people go wrong. Below is a guide plus some tips to make sure your home relocation is successful. Take a look.
• Moving your belongings to the new house
• Plan and organize everything upfront
Hire a removal company
As much as you will want to minimize costs by doing everything yourself, hiring an experienced company has its benefits. First and best of all, everything is done professionally, from packing to loading to traveling to unloading. If you choose to do it yourself, it may take you days or even weeks to pack your belongings, depending on how many you have. What’s more, such companies are skilled in handling anything – valuables, heavy, or delicate. You won’t even lift a sofa on your own.
Another advantage of hiring a moving company is that they provide insurance for their services. This means they are liable for any loss or damage of any of your property during the move. However, despite the many benefits of hiring a moving company, some people may still want to move without hiring one -well they all have their reasons. If you plan on doing so, then you will at least need to hire vehicle transport from Acertus to move your car(s).
Declutter your belongings
You should understand that the more belongings you have, the more you will pay for your house move and the longer it will take to move into your new house. But why carry something that you aren’t using or won’t need in your new house? So, before the moving company arrives to pack your belongings, go through them, and sort out things that are of no use. You should take your time on this so that you don’t throw away something that could be valuable or useful.
Also, you will need a plan for sorting out and decluttering your belongings – especially if you have a bigger house with many things. You should tackle each room independently to avoid confusion. Also, have some three boxes for things you need, those you’ll resell, and those you’ll donate. The process is tiresome and time-consuming so you will need a helping hand, maybe from friends or family. Once you have them, you can either sell them online to get extra cash or donate to a charity
Give a notification
You don’t want your neighbors to wake up one morning only to find you gone or to see you moving things without knowing where you are heading – it’s not a good neighborhood. At least give them goodbye and let them know where you are relocating to. Again, if you live in rentals, don’t forget to notify your landlord or landlady of your move. Lastly, you must inform your utility providers as well as your insurers and banks, of your move and your new address if need be.
