New Year Guide to Moving

The holidays make for a crazy time of year. You’re making arrangements to spend time with the family, traveling or enjoying the weather with sips of hot cocoa.  The New Year means countless things to different people and to some, the best way to ring in the new year is to move in to a new home. If you want to move in January, it is best to start planning now and you can start your move by hosting a packing party

Moving is a big deal and pulling an all nighter won’t make for a succesful move. You will first have to locate a local moving company. It is crucial to ask the company if they are licensed, bonded and insured.  On move day, be in contact with the movers. Fully charge your mobile phone and always keep your mobile phone on you. When the movers confirm your move days before the actual move day, double check that the number is on file. 

Stay organized when packing your belongings. Pack your items room to room and label every box.  Have an “Open Me First” box for every room for items you know are the first things you will need when you get to your new home. For instance in the kitchen, it could be dishwashing soap, a few plates, glasses and a snack. Pay special attention to your favorite things. Purchase packing supplies such as bubble wrap and tissue paper to fully pad and protect the item. 

It’s good to take note that movers can’t move flammable items and items that carry fuel should be emptied out before loaded on the truck for example a lawnmower. Also, your valuable items such as important documents and jewelry should be with you during the move and not on the truck.
