Moving means a million things to do at once. It can easily leave someone flustered and overwhelmed if all the tasks are not completed on time because eventually everything will end up in a mess. The problem is that there are so many vital details associated with moving day that we often overlook them and regret later on.
That is why it is better to jot down what you need to get done before moving day:
• First and foremost, get on with the packing. It is a common mistake to pack in the remaining few days as you will never have the time or energy to pack the things you need and dispose of stuff you no longer have any use for. Don't forget to clearly mark the boxes with the room name you would like them to end up in. Completion of this stage before moving day is a big accomplishment.
• Unless you have arranged with the removal company, you will be expected to dismantle any self-assembly furniture that cannot be moved out in one. Take down curtains and any fixtures you are intending to take with you. Make sure you have disconnected the washer and fitted the transit brackets to secure the drum. Defrost the fridge and freezer at least 24 hours before.
• Pack an essentials box with fresh toiletries that are currently not in use. Leave this box open to put in everything that is not being used. Seal it up on the last day when everyone has woken and brushed their teeth.
• Make up a box of refreshments for the next day, bearing in mind that your cooker may be disconnected or in the back of a removal van. Include tea, coffee, sugar, the kettle etc.
• Any item outside that you can move, try to put it either inside the garage or in a dry place. You wouldn’t like to put soaking wet outside furniture in a rental truck along with all your other furniture.
• Make sure the parking area is clear for the moving company when they arrive. If movers have a tough time locating a parking spot, it will cause unnecessary delays and inconvenience. Park your own car elsewhere till the movers are done with their work.
• Before the moving day, sit down and either write out some directions or draw a plan on how to get to your new address, including a contact number.
• Last but not the least; ensure that your mobile phone is fully charged for the moving day as you will certainly not have time to charge it up while the move is going on.
