Moving into a new home can be a stressful but exciting time. It’s a new beginning with endless possibilities and a lot of people look forward to a new start.
However, there’s no denying that it can be a lot of work getting from A to B, and often people will end up stressed and agitated, especially if they haven’t coordinated their day very well. However, if you’re hiring professionals to help you out on moving day, there are a few things you can do to help you prepare for removalists and make your day as easy and stress-free as possible. Take a look at our top 5 ways to prepare your home for removalists.
1. Break down your furniture
Dismantling or breaking down your big and bulky furniture such as your bed, bookshelves or even drawers will help your removalists out a lot. These large items will often be too big to fit into or onto a truck in one piece, so making them as small as possible is going to make the job a lot easier and faster.
2. Gather your packing supplies ahead of time
Be prepared ahead of time by ensuring that you have enough boxes, tape and storage items to safely pack up all your things. This is going to take a lot of stress out of the big day and ensures that you have time to buy more supplies should you run out. Removalists can help you pack up your house if you want them to, but it’s understandable if you’d rather do this yourself, especially when it comes to your personal belongings. Whatever you choose, having everything packed up and ready to go makes your removalist’s job easier and more efficient.
3. Label all of your boxes
Having your boxes pre-labelled is a fantastic way to help your removalists out when they are unloading your belongings at the new home. They will be able to place everything in the correct rooms straight away. It will also make it a lot more convenient for you when you aren’t hunting through a mound of boxes trying to locate your cutlery on the first night. Unpacking and organising your new home will be much easier.
4. Move your heavy furniture to the front
Removalists tend to load up their trucks with heavy appliances such as fridges, washing machines and dryers first followed by furniture such as sofas and beds. If you’re able to, try and have all of your heavier furniture ready to go at the front of your house so that your removalists can load them straight onto the truck.
5. Pack up your home early
There’s nothing quite like being well prepared beforehand. Don’t try and pack up your entire home the day before as it likely isn’t going to be a fun time for anyone involved. Start packing up your belongings early and you can take your time while you’re doing so. You will be able to pack your belongings safely and securely and you won’t be rushing and stressing. By the time the big day arrives, you should be ready to go and all your removalists will need to do will be to load everything onto the truck.
Moving home doesn’t have to be hard or stressful. If you plan ahead and use your time to be well prepared for your removalists when it comes to moving day, it should be a smooth and easy exercise for everyone involved.
