For your imminent move from Andhra Pradesh to Hyderabad, you spoke to the packers and movers in Andhra Pradesh, and after needful review and assessment; you even booked a deal with them! You want to make your house move to happen in a stress-free manner, and so you have confirmed everything ahead of time – now there is a top-class plan and a reasonable budget, and you have even started working on your goods evaluation task.
You are too cluttered up right now because of the countless stuff lying around in the house. You want to quickly wrap up this task because only then you can make an inventory out of the actual household stuff. The situation would seem a bit sorted once the movers have overseen everything and informed you about their packing and moving protocol.
But until then, you can take some cues from the below-mentioned relocation hacks and have a comfortable settling in!
• Always refer to tried and tested resources – Preparation is the very first thing we look forward to when we move and for that, we lookout for all the possible relocation sources online. We refer to the relocation tips and tricks and do all our research about the domain on the internet. No matter how time-consuming the task seems to be, we should not hastily work on it. There needs to have some serious decision-making and evaluation at this point and so, one should always refer to the authentic websites and verify the credentials of the company before moving.
• Create your personalized move agenda – There is no two way that you should research moving companies amply and collect as many moving quotations possible, to reach out to that perfect moving deal but when you are done with all of that assessment, you should create your list of ‘to-dos’ and ‘essentials’. Ideally, you should make lists for all your moving requisites on your own because you cannot go with only the advised tips on the internet, right? You may have a slightly different concern or a unique packing need. For that, you should speak to your hired team of professionals.
• Get a compact, convenient binder for the move – Anything that is sturdy and compact is just great for relocation purposes. You can access them as many times as you want and use them at your convenience. At this point, since we are underlining the importance of having a moving binder, you should ascertain that you have one with all the vital paperwork. Keep the contract papers in it, along with the identity proofs of you and your family members. In addition to those, have your license, insurance papers, health documents, property papers, office papers, transfer certificates, etc. in the same folder.
• Prepare a packing kit of packing essentials – If you think you are quoted a heavy price by the moving professionals for the packing supplies, you can get them from the market yourself. You can even source the supplies online. But make sure you are neither paying too much for the essentials nor getting them at an extremely low price because the latter may mean that you have been compromised for the quality. Packing materials can never be too inexpensive. They are essentials. So, remember to inspect the quality of the materials before you choose to buy them.
• Enlist all the priority boxes in a separate moving list – Every household has a few essential things/extraordinary objects that they choose to pack themselves and pack discretely. All these priority boxes must be packed at the same time and should be kept in one place within the moving truck. If the professionals are handling these ‘open-first’ moving cartons, tell them where you want these boxes to be adjusted in the truck and when you want them to be delivered to you! These essential boxes could contain items ranging from the cleaning supplies to the toiletries, from the bedding materials to the crockery.
• Delegate and share responsibilities when packing – Once you have packed and set aside the important stuff from your household in one room, you will be left with the rest of the items that would either be managed by you or by the professional packers. We would recommend you to let the professionals only take care of the packing task, because – one, they are indeed experts in the task and two because you will have hundreds of other pre-moving tasks to take care of. You can even delegate some packing tasks to other members of the family as performing the packing task together will significantly simplify the task!
• Perform packing just like how the professionals do – You may not be a pro in pulling off the packing tasks alone, after all, it is not a daily ritual you undertake in life. But you should at least ensure that whatever you do, you do it right. That is, you should be responsible for the packing tasks you are working on. Find out creative ways, smart and quick-moving hacks, etc. to provide your goods with the needful care it deserves. Pack your goods clean. Add significant protection with a dense cushioning around the object and use the good quality wrap to pack the item well.
• Label the moving boxes for a hassle-free move – Labeling may be one of the very last steps in the packing process but it is indeed one of the most important things to work out before your packages are loaded into the moving vehicle. If you keep a note of the final moving cartons by marking the packed belongings from your moving inventory, you will know how many goods have been packed and which ones need extra care. All the sensitive (fragile) packages should have name labels because they should be handled with extreme care during the move.
