Congratulations on this major event of your life – moving premises, whether commercial or residential is always an exciting time for those involved in it. It can be scary to think about the time and energy you will have to put into the process, but proper planning can make it worthwhile. While the general assumption is that moving is an expensive, exhausting, confusing time in the life of a family, individual or company, proper planning will help you to achieve a smooth transition whether the move is across the street or over to another region. The following tips will help you to have a flawless process;
- Have a separate small bag that can fit in some basics such as toiletries, makeup, and money. In almost all instances of moving, the process of unpacking is not completed within a day. If it takes days or weeks, this little handy bag will allow you to look as fresh as possible and even attend school or work without looking disorganized.
- Obtain a couple of rubber bands to tie around the edge of the main door lock to allow for easy movement. This applies to both scenarios; you are moving by your own means or have hired a New Orleans moving company. The tied edge keeps the lock open so that the moving team is able to bring in luggage into the house without the need to stop to open the door every time.
- Instead of removing clothes from hangers, slide up garbage bags over them and clip them at the top. This ensures that ironed clothes reach the new house still pressed and there will be no need to go through the individual hangers to re-hang the clothes. You will appreciate this trip more if you need to be at work the following day and have no idea where the iron and iron box are.
- Hire a professional moving company to handle some chunk of the moving process. You may want to do the unpacking by yourself, label all your belongings or even clean items before you pack them for a move. Once you have all your belongings into boxes and moving stacks, it is time to employ the services of someone who has experience with moving. Better still why not ask for packing advice from a moving company? Tasks like moving furniture without damaging the floor, stacking utensils to minimize chances of breakage and relocating plants are best left to people who have the expertise and experience.
