When you purchase a new house and you are all excited to get in it, you may find you want to rush moving day and just get everything to the new house and sort it out later. However, this is how you can end up finding a lot of your stuff lost or even broken. It's much better to put the extra bit of effort into trying to do things organized so you don't find yourself in the midst of chaos once you get in your new place. Here are 4 tips to moving you may want to consider following:
1: Mark the boxes with the names of the rooms they will be going in: When you are packing your boxes you should mark them for the rooms you plan on them going into at the new place. This way, anyone who helps you move can just carry them all the way into the right rooms. You should also have a large area that's out of the way where you can set miscellaneous boxes that you haven't decided on yet, or that have a mixture of items that will go into different rooms. A family room, a corner of a large dining room or a garage can often work best for these boxes.
2: Move the furniture in first
When you are loading the moving truck you want to keep in mind that you are going to want to move in a lot of your furniture first. One of the benefits to this will be having somewhere comfortable to sit when you take a break and another will be having a comfortable place to sleep if you don't get everything unloaded in one day.
3: Make sure kitchenware is also easily available
While you don't necessarily have to have access to all of your cookware right away, you should have one box that has the bare necessities. This way, you can cook basic meals while you are still unpacking the rest of your kitchenware. You can include silverware, the necessary amount of bowls, plates, and cups, as well as a pot and pan into a basics box that gets put in the kitchen right away.
4: Have a bare necessities box ready to go in the house
You should also have a bare necessities box at the very rear of the truck that goes in the house first also. It should have things like toilet paper, tooth care items, soap, shampoo, lotion, a first aid kit, all the pets food, television remotes, phone chargers, electronic devices and anything else that you are going to want to know right where it is and make sure it gets off the truck first.
