There’s a saying that goes ‘Work smarter, not harder’ and whilst this maybe true to use for our busy lives and careers, this can also be true when you’re planning to move. Whether you’re going through a residential move or an office move, it pays to be smart in these situations. Being smart means being able to complete tasks in a methodical and cost-effective manner.
So, are you planning a move soon or in the near future? Here’s how you can really make your move ‘smart’ and hassle-free.
If you want to make packing a smarter and more systematic venture, then make sure you don’t box up everything all in one go. Give yourself time to pack, and if you can, make a list and write down you will fill one to two boxes a day. Packing with this thought process will also assist you in becoming more organised and you wont be rushing around the house wondering where that lamp from your grandmother is (which you packed 2 days ago).
Don’t pack your clothes
Most of us opt to rely on a professional moving company, such as Bell and Sons, the specialists in Corby, Northampton, Nuneaton and surrounding areas. A good removals company can assist you with transporting your items safely and securely, but there’s one major aspect that they can provide for you: boxes! Which means you don’t need to pack your wardrobe – they will carefully place all your clothes neatly away in a effective process, saving you time and a peace of mind.
Prioritise your utilities
Another procedure you can do to make your move smarter is to prioritise your utilities. As soon as you have confirmation of your moving date, call your utility provider and request a switch. This is essential if you’re going to move to a new build or a home that has been vacant for a while, since a maintenance call may have to be arranged first before service can be re-established.
Bring in the basics beforehand
If the area where you’re moving to is near your current home, you can also be smarter by bringing in some supplies and items to your new home before the day of the move! Supplies such as toiletries and small kitchen necessities can really make a difference. You can also arrange to bring in sleepwear and other necessary clothing to your new home a day or two before the big day, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting anything before the rest of your possessions come.
This is an exciting time – so try not to worry too much. If you need help, then help is on the way with Bell and Sons.
