SEVEN TIPS FOR A WORRY-FREE MOVE
Are you moving soon? Here are seven useful tips for pulling off a glitch-free moving day.
1. Pack all your items in sturdy containers; use thick cardboard boxes or large plastic storage bins. Add lots of protective padding to keep your fragile items from being broken when driving over potholes in the road. Don’t forget to seal your boxes with strong tape. 2. Number your boxes clearly and make a list of their contents, on the box itself or on an inventory of your possessions. Write on each box which room it be¬longs in (kitchen, basement, etc.). 3. Attach any elongated objects together for easy handling, such as curtain rods, brooms,
hockey sticks and skis. 4. Keep with you any valuables or objects of sentimental value, such as collections, jewelry,
photos and important documents. 5. Plan to have a moving dolly and straps available for transporting large pieces of furniture and
appliances. Wear work gloves to avoid injuring your hands. 6. Keep some basic tools on hand (screwdriver, hammer, tape measure, drill, level, saw, etc.). 7. Bring water and snacks for the people helping you move. Keep the beer and pizza for the
end of the big day.
Carefully packed belongings, a few tools and plenty of helping hands: you’re all set to move!
