What to do better at the moving day

When everything is prepared and packed for the move, and when you`re waiting for the arrival of the moving van – there is always something else that you can do in the meantime. Next are some of these tips and tricks, and a few more advices on what to do better, which could help enjoy a much better moving day.

The first and most important thing is to sort and de-clutter everything justly. Get rid of the useful objects, which will one save space when packing and preparing your belongings, and two – it will reduce the number of the tasks at the moving day. A great tip is to start de-cluttering at least a week before the moving day, so you can easily put off aside the useless objects as a disposal of waste. Next, make sure to hire the perfect company and do it quite in advance too. Select the perfect size of the moving van if hiring only a van or ask the professional moving agent for a recommendation according to your expectations. Start packing and preparing your belongings as earlier as possible, because at the moving day everything should be prepared and ready for the relocation, and yet there may be plenty of things that you could do better. For example:

What to do for time saving

– Make a small special box with sandwiches for the trip and while waiting for the movers. Give sandwiches to the kids during the most overwhelming moments, which will reduce the hustle and bustle.

– Check and double-check your moving checklist. Go through every item and ensure that it is in the right box. This is the best way to ensure a better and quick orientation among the hundreds of items in your checklist when loading/unloading the van.

– Make a plan of the road, a road map or so. Choose an extra route to the new house for just in case. Ensure that the GPS of the van is working properly. Assign the preferred stops and rest stops along the route if moving at a quite long distance.
