Sans titre 24

Moving, says the proverb, is worse than a fire. Anyone who has moved at least once vows never to do so again. Folding, packing, transporting, and unpacking is a hell of a job. How to move and not lose health? How to spend a minimum of time on fees? First, you should find the best Brooklyn movers and storage specialists to help you with this.

Let’s talk about moving points to consider:

  • packing clothes and furniture;
  • getting ready for the new place;
  • preparing docs and money.

Read the article to know more about them.

Collect All Important Documents

Two weeks before moving. Bills, contracts, birth certificates, and medical policies can easily be lost during fees, so it is better to allocate a separate box or folder for securities. Make a list of the contents and write it right on the box.

Gather Jewels and Money

Two weeks before moving. It is better to keep this box with you and not to entrust it to the movers. And even more so, you should not sign the box “Valuable”.

Set the Exact Date and Time of the Move

Two weeks before moving. Find movers and tell them about the amount of furniture and boxes. They will pick up the necessary car and loaders.

Check Your Debts

One week before moving. Pay all bills, check debts, do not forget to turn off the Internet and TV at the old address, and schedule a registration at the new address.

Fold Your Clothes

One week before moving. Leave a few sets of clothes for a week, and put the rest in large shopping bags and boxes. Place dresses and suits in covers, linens, and blankets in vacuum bags to save space. Send textiles there: curtains, towels, tablecloths. It is better to give carpets for dry-cleaning in advance and pick them up clean already in a new place.

Prepare a New Apartment

Six days before moving. Do a spring cleaning in the new apartment and fix all the problems before moving in. Take bulky plants there in advance, which can be broken and damaged during transportation in a truck.

Pack Things That Should Be at Hand

Five days before moving. Put the medicines in a separate box, but do not pack them with tape. The first aid kit should always be at hand, and not in a pile of boxes. The same with cosmetics – check tubes and jars, place them in bags so as not to spill, and leave only the most necessary in the bathroom and on the dressing table.

Packing the Kitchen

Four days before moving. Gather cutlery, dishes, and household appliances – leave only a set of forks, plates, and mugs per person. Pack frying pans, pots, baking dishes, knives, boards, and kitchen accessories – as a rule, in the last days before moving, there is no time for cooking. Therefore, do not waste time on this and order ready-made food.

Pack Appliances and Furniture

Three days before moving. Disassemble and pack the furniture that you decide to take with you in bubble wrap. Carefully wrap your appliances: TV, audio systems, projectors, etc. Don’t forget to attach the appropriate wires to each item so you don’t get confused later. If you decide to pick up the refrigerator, do not forget to take out all the food from it.

These are definitely not all that you need to consider before moving. However, we hope that the article will help you get things right while moving. Good luck!
