Making a move soon? Awesome! Moving can be fun, new and exciting. Although the change can stress some people out it can still be a great experience if you let it!
If you are moving into an apartment or condo that is the second floor or higher you are probably less worried about how exciting this move can be and more worried about what a stress it is going to be moving that big couch you bought up 3 or more flights of stairs without scratching and scraping it!
Carrying boxes and furniture up flights of stairs can be strenuous on both your body and your furniture.
Moving can be tough. Even if you have done it multiple times, each time you learn new things to do and learn things you should never do again.
Here is a list of tips that you might have heard before or maybe haven’t. Follow this advice to make your move less stressful and a lot smoother.
Pack an overnight bag: You need to have things such as clothes and toiletry’s readily available and not packed deep into a box. You don’t know how much energy you’ll have or how fast the unpacking process will be. So have what you need ready.
If you are moving out for your first time then you are probably scared and a little intimidated by the thought and the process of it all! But don’t worry. We have created a checklist to help you prepare to move out of your parents home and into your own home.
Money: Make sure you have it, a lot of it! You should have a steady income that will allow you to cover all of your housing bills and then some.
Planning a move soon? If so you probably have a lot on your plate, a lot of stuff that can be very stressful but in the end rewarding.
Often times when your lease is up in one home, or your home is sold and move out day has come, your next home is not ready or even worse is not yet found. This happens to people all the time. Sometimes things happen fast and you don’t have the time to find a new place by the time you have to be out of the house you are in.
Moving is a lot of work. First there is the packing process, cleaning the place you are moving out of, moving all the heavy boxes, and now you still have to unpack! Unpacking doesn’t have to feel like a chore, making your new house a home is exciting to most people.
Some simple things you should know to make the process smooth:
Spring-cleaning is just around the corner and mobile storage is a little trick people have been using for years to help the process. You may not have enough time in one day to clean out the attic, the garage, the shed, the basement, or prepare your home for sale and you will need a place to keep your belongings safe from weather, damage and theft. Renting a mobile storage unit may be your best option. Merchants moving and storage has mobile storage units that can solve the problem.
