Relocating To A New Area Does Not Have To Be A Mission

Author : Sally Jurdon

My spouce and i have finally taken that massive step! No, we are not becoming parents yet. I said "huge", not "life changing"! We bought a property! You heard right, our own little three bedroom unit with a backyard for the doggy and a swimming pool for all those parties we are dying to have!
The only issue is that we have managed to gather at least 5 years' worth of garbage and junk and we have to now deal with that before we can start getting excited about moving into our new place!

Luckily, we have quite become experts with the whole moving "game". This is after all the 6th time in 5 years that husband and I are moving to a new home - hopefully this will be the last time in a long while as we are now joining the responsible world of the house owners!

So here with a few relocating tips which may come in useful:

Make an effort to start getting rid of some of your "junk" as early as you even start thinking about the possibility of moving! My hubby still has a container full of mags that survived the last move. The hilarious thing is that those magazines are still in a container after 2 years! So did he take a second look at any of those mags in the past 24 months? No! Will he allow me to dispose of it if I mentioned it to him? No! So without a doubt, you've guessed it - that box of magazines are going to quietly disappear into the outside dustbin. never to be thought about again! After all really, why move them with to our new residence? They are messy, obsolete and old!

Make an effort to take some of your private or precious goods prior to the moving company arrives to help you with the move. Items such as televisions, hi-fi's and other gadgets are most likely better of in the back of your boot, rather than in a moving van with a ton of other boxes!

Bubble-wrap your artwork and other bulky items to protect them from scuff marks. Also make 100% sure to mark such items as "fragile" and make sure to bring it to the moving company's attention to take extra preventative measure with those items. I know we all desire to believe that every piece of our household furniture and every single container will be treated as a valuable piece of crystal glass, but that is however not always the case.

While we're on the topic of glasses, stock up on papers ahead of the move! This will likely come in especially handy when you need to box-up your kitchen! Wrap your glasses, cups and other fragile items in magazines prior to packing them in cardboard boxes - this will prevent a lot of damaged and chipped kitchenware!

It's also important to choose your moving company cautiously. Referral marketing is always the best recommendation. If you have any special needs or any abnormally large furniture or items to move, make sure to bring it to the moving company's attention.

Happy house hunting and enjoy the packing and relocating!
