If you haven’t moved homes in your life already, then surely you will at some point. It can be quite a stressful and elongated experience, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Things get broken and lost, tempers arise, and the emotions of leaving an old place behind inevitably kick in turning the entire process into a frustrating mess. Fortunately, there are many small precautions you can take from start to finish to make the moving process easier and less worrisome for everyone involved.
The first thing you can do to ease the move is locating the right boxes for the respective items you will be relocating. Sometimes movers drop boxes, but it’s not always their fault. If huge boxes are used to move small items or vice versa, the box will be unsteady and can cave in if stacked or overflow. Another tip is learning how to build foundational walls within your boxes. This means placing things like books around the perimeters to make them sturdier. Following this, place heavy objects at the bottom of the boxes to reduce the likelihood of items breaking and protect those that are more fragile. Build a pyramid in each box, with lightest objects on top.
On the same note, be warned about leaving open spaces inside of boxes and granting objects to fly around freely during transportation. Add to the security of those items by properly taping boxes. In the case of tape, it’s always better to add a little more rather than less. Ensuring the absolute stability of the boxes now will save you from heartbreak or any other type of break later.
Another key to a stress-free move is keeping your belongings organized according to location and labeling them correspondingly. Be sure to keep all kitchenware together, all bathroom supplies together and furthermore, so that you won’t find yourself frazzled and scrambling when you reach your new abode. Labeling each box properly will be beneficial to both you and the movers as well. Last but not least, give extra care to breakables. Fragile items and expensive electronics will benefit from extra bundling and safeguarding so that the chances of someone being liable for a breakage are as minimal as possible.
