Moving Tips

Guidelines to move by if you want a trouble­free relocation

  • Create a To Do list.
  • Organize your belongings and get rid of everything you don’t need. You can sell your unwanted stuff to make some extra money or donate it to charity even.
  • Make sure to notify people about your move (your landlord, your boss, friends, bank, insurance company etc.).
  • Cancel any regular home deliveries (newspapers, magazines, etc.).
  • Cancel or transfer your memberships (gym, club, etc.).
  • Start packing in advance. Begin with items that are less used and finish with the things you use on a daily basis.
  • Don’t forget to pack an essentials box, including a change of clothes, medications, hygiene items etc
  • Make sure to acquire the proper amount of packing materials and supplies: cardboard boxes of all sizes, protective wrap, packing paper, duck tape etc.
  • Don’t forget to mark and label each box ­ it makes unpacking all the much easier and faster. A good way to go would be to label them per room ­ a more organized method.
  • Wrap your fragile items separately and label them clearly.
  • Make sure you don’t overpack your boxes, otherwise you risk damaging your own belongings.
  • Make suitable arrangements for your pets. It’s better to keep them with a friend or hire a pet sitter.
  • Think about who will do the final cleaning. Consider hiring a professional cleaner to make the process easier.
