Written by Posted On Monday, 29 June 2015 09:58

Moving to a new home can be a very exciting time for a lot of us, but the truth is that even though you feel very happy that you're probably going to move into a bigger and more beautiful home, there are many things you need to attend to. By knowing when and what to consider first, you're going to be able to move fast and without having to worry about any kinds of hassles.


Draw a Floor Plan

Making a floor plan is a very good way to ensure that you won't waste time when it comes to packing your stuff. In fact, you need to come up with one such plan several days before the actual move itself. Write down which pieces of furniture will go where in your new home and in what order. This way, the movers will know exactly how you would like them to be arranged in your new home. Don't think that you can decide what goes where on moving day, since that is rarely the case unless you're an extremely organized person who has superhuman memory and patience.


Be There When Your Stuff Is Packed And Loaded Into The Truck

If you don't want to lift a finger during the entire move, then you probably went ahead and hired a moving company to help you out with it. Well, if that’s the case, then you should know what its' very important to be next to them on moving day. That’s because you definitely want to oversee the way they pack and load your stuff into the truck. Keep in mind that the movers are also going to issue an inventory of all items. Carefully check the list and ensure that it's correct prior to signing it. If an item is damaged or lost, then it would certainly be a pity to find out about it later.


Make it Easy on Your Friends

There are many people who still think that giving their friends a pizza and a few beers is going to help them get away with a much lower expenditure for the move and that’s generally true. However, in order to make sure that everything is going to go as planned, you need to tell them exactly what to do, when and how to do it. Basically, you need to provide them with specific instructions so they know what they have to do. Oh, you should also have plenty of snacks and beverages on hand, too. Another thing is that if the moving encroaches on dinner, then you should order some extra food.


Prepare Your New Home 


If your new home is not actually new and it has not been cleaned prior to your arrival, then you definitely need to be there a few days prior to the move and do some basic cleaning. Dusting and mopping are important if you don't want your furniture and all the things you're going to bring into the house to get dirty. All in all, by considering these valuable tips, moving to a new home is going to be a lot easier and fun!
