Moving is something that can be chaotic and stressful for anyone. Having to move house, with all your belongings from one place to another, is a challenge: each of the objects that you have must arrive in perfect condition at the new home. It is very important that you plan the move, in the morning I have to do this and in the afternoon the other, in this way you will not go crazy with everything that a move entails.
Get rid of what you don’t use . Since you have to put everything in boxes, check what you no longer wear like those clothes that are tight or out of fashion. Do not throw it away, donate it to a charity that you have near or know. If you don’t know where to put your clothes or furniture in your new home, you have the possibility of renting storage rooms . It is a very good option to continue keeping all your things and to gain space in your home.
Prepare a survival bag . Put in a travel bag everything you need for the first days: some towels, pajamas, a set of sheets and a toiletry bag with everything you need for personal hygiene: toothpaste, toothbrush, shower gel, a sponge … You leave this bag in the bathroom, when you need it you will know where to find it. In a box put plates, glasses, plastic cutlery, kitchen paper and napkins, the essentials to be able to eat and dine those first days, and leave it in the kitchen.
Is there a volunteer in the room? This is a good question! If you have a large family and good friends who are capable of selflessly helping you in your move, you are very lucky. Feel free to turn to them for help with the move. At the end of the day, treat them to a rewarding and well-deserved dinner.
Let’s make a few boxes . Get organized weeks before and you see collecting all the boxes that you can get in the shops of the neighborhood or your work; newspapers, bubble wrap to wrap all delicate objects; rolls of packaging tape; scissors and some fat colored markers. Paint the name of what it contains on the outside of the boxes, so when you start to organize you will know where each box has to be placed.
My advice is that, even if the box is very large, do not load it with a lot of weight, because you will not be able to move it yourself unless they help you. All plugs and adapters, put them together.
Be careful when disassembling the furniture . When you have to disassemble the furniture for the move, remember very well how they have to be assembled, if you see that when reassembling the furniture they are going to cause you a real headache, take several photos with your mobile to have a reference of how to do it. In a transparent plastic bag, put the screws corresponding to each piece of furniture inside and stick that bag with cellophane on the back of it.
Van placement . It is very important to know how to make good use of the space in the van with which you are going to make the move. First place the bulkiest furniture, then the heaviest boxes, in this way you will hold all the content inside the vehicle. Secure all of them with ropes so that, during the trip, they do not move or fall.
Line the most delicate furniture . You already have all the furniture disassembled, so that they do not spoil during the move. Wrap the most delicate ones with those old blankets that no longer work, but if you don’t have one, use bubble wrap. Put the squares in a box; All of them lined with the same plastic, place some t-shirts between them so that they are more protected. Roll the plates and glasses one by one with the newspapers that you have collected and between the gaps put newspaper sheets. On the outside of the boxes and with a fat marker, you write in large letters what it contains and also the word FRAGILE. Keep the furniture in an area where it will not be in danger of breaking or spoiling while the move takes place or reserve it in storage rooms .
It is time to place the boxes . As each box has on the outside what it contains, place them in their corresponding rooms, do not put them all piled up in the living room without meaning or obstructing the passage. Let each member of the family open their corresponding boxes and decorate the room to their liking.
Do not be scared to change house, do not get overwhelmed or stressed. Follow these tips that I give you and you will see how you will finish the move much sooner than you expect. At the end you will be able to sit back and enjoy your new home and contemplate how happy your whole family is in it.
