Moving is one of those life experiences that, even under the best of conditions, has the potential to be stressful and overwhelming. With a little preparation, though, you can take charge of your move and keep all the stress and drama at bay. Becker Movers, a Rochester-based residential and commercial moving company, shares a few tips for a smooth, successful relocation.
- Make a list…and check it twice.
Actually, make more than one list. Before your move, list all the large items that will be coming with you; that way, when you call around to various moving services, you can obtain an accurate quote for your move. Next, make a list of all major items that you'll be packing, and it will be a breeze to figure out how many boxes, rolls of tape, and other packing supplies you'll need. As you pack, keep a list of the general contents of each box so you know which box goes to which room.
- Have a loved one baby- and/or pet-sit.
It's always smart to keep children and pets out of the way during a move. If you can leave them with a loved one, it will likely make your move faster and far less hectic.
- Set up your bed first.
After a move, you're probably going to want to get a good night's rest. Once everything is moved into your new location, unpack your bed linens and pillows, and get your bed set for your first night in your new home.
