Not everything when it comes to moving needs to be a chore. You can easily get ready to move if you plan accordingly and take your time. Try to remove any stresses from your life. There are many things that you need to get done before your move date, but that does not mean that you should be stressed out about it. It just means that you need to take some time and plan your move so that everything goes smoothly. So below there are some quick tips that you could use when you are trying to plan you move to a self storage facility or to your next home.
When packing picture with glass pack them like you hang them that way the stress is off the glass. If you are a picture taker and hanger, then you should have a full box that is full of pictures in their frames. Be careful to place your picture frames back to back so there not any damage to the glass or the frame. Of course you should label the box fragile just to make sure whoever handles that box will not be so rough with it.
Make sure your phone is on at your new house before you disconnect from your old house. When you move in to your new home you want it to look, feel, smell like your home. There is no reason to have the phone on at your hold home. Have the telephone company move your service over to your new home a couple of days before your move. Therefore when moving day is upon you, that is one less thing you have to think about and do. It is a good idea to give everyone who needs to get a hold of you, your cell phone number so you can bring that with you everywhere you go.
Hire someone to clean your old house when you move out so you can concentrate on your new one. It is not a bad idea, if you can afford it, to have someone detail your home. You have people detail your car from time to time, so it is not a far stretch to have someone detail your home. If you find someone locally to clean your old home, you will be helping the local economy as well.
