Making moving easier

Making moving easier

Moving is often seen as being up there with life’s most stressful experiences such as marriage, divorce and death.  Whether you are making a move for the umpteenth time or for the very first time, there are a number of tips that could be of great benefit.

One good tip is to make lists.  Making a list of things that need to be done means that these tasks can be ticked off when completed, ensuring that they will not be forgotten in the midst of all the hustle and bustle.  Organization can be extremely helpful indeed when undergoing such a frantic and complicated an experience as changing where you live.

Another good tip is to always label your moving boxes.  If you make use of a numbering system and label your boxes accordingly, this can make it considerably easier to keep track of all your belongings during a move.  The contents of the boxes can also be written on the outside in order to make identification simple, and it is important to be as detailed as you can.  Never label a box as ‘miscellaneous’, as this can be very confusing when trying to work out where things are among dozens of different boxes – particularly if there are several boxes with the label ‘miscellaneous’ on them.

If you are making a move either out of or into an apartment with a number of other people, your name should be written on all sides of your own boxes to avoid the headache of mixing up and misplacing them.
