10 Tips for moving into your new home
Making the decision to buy a house is not easy. Now that you’ve decided to take the plunge, it’s time to pack all your belongings to take them to your new home.
Whether it is a vacation home, second home or your first home, we recommend that you follow our tips on how to make a move quickly, easily and comfortably, free yourself from any pressure!
1. Clean before packing
If we manage to get rid of all unnecessary items, we save time and space. There is no point in taking items you don’t use to your new home.
2. Organize your belongings according to their weight
Grouping all light objects in bags or boxes will make the task of moving them easier than if they are mixed with heavy objects. We should leave the furniture and everything that weighs for the end, either because we are going to disassemble it or we are going to carry it whole in a vehicle.
3. Use garbage bags for soft objects.
Although it may sound strange, garbage bags are very useful for storing pillows, comforters, stuffed animals, etc. By compacting all these soft objects we save space in the moving truck.
4. Prepare your boxes
Before the move we must have all your materials ready to have everything ready and not waste time. It’s time to start packing!
5. Free your agenda
In order to make a move, we must find some free time, either on a weekend or during a vacation. Breaks will be very important before and after the move, as we not only have to organize our belongings for the move, but also when we are in our new home.
6. Decorate before moving in
If you are thinking of painting, replacing floors or making any changes to your new home, it’s best to do it before you have all your belongings there. Doing so will make it more convenient, since you won’t have to worry about dirtying or ruining your furniture.
7. Prepare all services for your new home
Depending on the new location of your home, there will be a greater or lesser likelihood of finding service providers you like. For this reason, before moving your furniture, you should inform yourself of all the available options. Performing this task prior to your move will allow you to save time on unnecessary paperwork and enjoy your new home directly.
8. Insure your transportation
An essential step is to have the vehicle you are going to use to move your belongings ready. Whether you are going to rent or not, you must know the capacity of the truck or van.
9. Prepare a kit with your personal items
Moves usually take several days, either before or after you move into your new home. For this reason, a very common tip is to leave out of the boxes some sets of clothes and your personal hygiene products. If you follow this example, you will be comfortable throughout the moving process.
10. Get used to the new situation
The most important thing during the whole moving process is to remain calm and not to panic. We know how stressful it can be to have to leave your old home behind and the problems that can come with it, be it weather or those you can’t control. Therefore, this whole process will take you some time to adapt until you finally manage to finish the move.
We hope that with these tips you will be able to have everything ready during your move and enjoy your new accommodation. For a comfortable and relaxed move, anticipation is an important factor to take into account, either to save money or time.
