It takes a lot of work to move. Coordinating everything with your apartment movers, getting all your possessions sorted, packed and ready to go, and hauling yourself and your family to the new location is certainly exhausting, stressful and tough. Minimizing the chaos and hassle of moving day requires massive amounts of preparation.
Here are our best tips to help you get through the whole process with as little of a headache as possible.
It’s important to have everything you will transport boxed up and ready at least one day before the big move. Make sure to separate the items you’ll be bringing yourself from the stuff you want the movers to take. Check to make sure you have all the essentials for one or two days in a to-go bag. This includes a change of clothes for every family member, toiletries and even small portable toys to keep young children occupied.
Keep a toolbox handy in your car to handle small problems that could pop up during the move. You must have at least a full set of basic tools like screwdrivers, drills, a hammer, scissors, box cutters and duct tape. Carry a lamp and spare batteries as well in case of emergencies.
A first-aid kit is always an important item to have. Before you go, double-check all medication to make sure you have enough for the trip. You may want to have important documents on you before you head out. This means the records and receipts from the movers, your identification cards and other pertinent items.
