Top 7 Tips for Moving House

Tip 1 Get Your Act Together

This tip really covers a lot of ground. Be organized – more specifically you need to have a checklist of things that need to be done and a number of other checklists such as change of address notifications and who to let know about new telephone numbers and addresses etc. Also it is good to have a checklist of utilities such as phone, gas, electricity, water, internet connection, and cable TV connection. All these will assist to give you that feeling of control in what can otherwise be a chaotic situation

Tip 2 Choose Your

Minneapolis Movers Company Wisely

Choose a removal company that’s right for you. House moves come in all shapes and sizes from the do-it-yourself move a few miles down the road to the whole household internationally. Similarly you may wish to have a moving company that does all the packing and unpacking as well. Choosing a reputable and reliable moving company will be a large part of whether your move goes smoothly or not, so please don’t underestimate the importance of this step. Word-of-mouth recommendation can be the best way to locate a good mover. Since you are on this site you have already found a good mover.

Tip 3 Get Insurance and Check Your

Movers Minneapolis Insurance

If you are moving things that have little or no value to you then you should probably just dispose of them before you move. In all other cases, you must have insurance.

Even if you choose one of the many other

- make sure both you and they have insurance.

Tip 4 What You See is Where it Goes

If you are doing the packing and unpacking you will want to make sure that all your boxes are well labelled. Also be sure that the labels are on multiple sides of boxes etc. since when they are packed the boxes may not all be facing the way you expect.

Tip 5 Plan to Have a Plan

If you have a plan of your new home it will be very useful to you make a number of copies and code the locations with numbers rather than names as it is not always easy for someone walking into a home to tell which kitchen is the main one nor which bathroom is the main one or whether a particular room is a dining, lounge or living room especially when there is no furniture in it to give a clue

Tip 6 The “Stuff I need now” box

One of the best things we ever discovered about moving was the value of having an unpack first box with all the essentials. Include kettle, tea or coffee, cups, plates, knives and forks, can opener, torch, magnifying glass, screwdriver with multiple heads and pliers.

Tip 7 Establishing Base Camp

Moving into a new home on the first night can be a little bit like camping out. In fact it can be a lot like camping out, especially if the electricity or other services have not yet been connected. For this reason it is a good idea to “establish a base camp”. What I mean by this is to ensure that you at least have the basics.
I consider the basics to be food and a bed to sleep in. This means that when you first arrive you will want to be able to have a cup of tea or coffee, snack of some kind and perhaps a couple of meals for your first day and breakfast for the next. Your second priority is having a bed to sleep in. It is surprising how comforting it is to have a bed that you can just fall into at the end of a long hard day and also how much more a new house will start to feel like a home once you have a place to sleep.
