With the least stress.
Moving from older places to M newer places for new opportunities and better living conditions is nowadays a very common process. Whether it be a new city or state or country, shifting requires a lot of time and planning. The actions required while planning need to be more efficient and effective so that it creates less burden on the movers who are shifting. Today, most of the teenagers pursuing courses and trainings have to go to other places to study. They need to pack and shift with all the necessary items and should avoid the unwanted junk items. Some tips will help make the shifting and packing process much easier, more efficient and most effective.
The very first decision is for the time of shifting. When you want to shift, mark a date for shifting and then start checking for the prices that different shifting companies charge.
During weekdays shifting companies charge less compared to weekends. The planning can help you in cutting down the cost and give you an idea about the time you have for the preparation of packing. Make your own choices as per your suitability. Making a checklist has always been of great help. When you have to pack things up and remembering about the things you want with you make a checklist of that. Most people use a checklist while shopping for home and kitchen goods.
Human mind can remember all the details but when in a situation where we have to remember so many things to take with us, some important things can slip. A checklist can be made for furniture, household goods, clothes, contacts of known people, to-do-lists, etc.
Packing and shifting is not a oneperson’s job. It requires patience, man power and thinking with a calm mind. And when you think about packing for the shifting with your friends’ help, this will surely make you more relaxed and happier and your load somewhere gets lighter.
With friends you feel more energetic and connected, so there are less chances of any mishappenings and things happen in their right place.
We have talked about searching for the movers with their rates and credibility and they are reliable or not. Now, it is the time to select the best of them. For finding out the best, research about the movers, about their costs, reviews by the
customers and their hidden costs, etc.
For long-distance moving and shifting, you should prefer the most reliable packers and movers company. Even if it gets a bit costlier but your luggage will be shifted safely.
The package counts
Deciding to shift the packages is also important. Moving to a nearby city or state should include heavy and bulky items only by the movers, rest you can yourself bring in your own car like television, music system, oven, a/c etc. The less luggage you leave with the packers the less, it will cost. With time saved by you between the date of deciding to shift till the shifting date you can pack the small items like TV, books, clothes, utensils, etc on your own in cartons and leave the bigger items for the packers. This makes the moving much more economical than getting all packed by the packers. You can get cartons easily from the nearby shopkeepers. So ask them instead of purchasing new cartons. Labelling them after packing helps a lot at the time of unpacking.
Clean up the junk
While packing we should only keep those things with us which are of use, not the junk which we have accumulated during the years with us. The more junk you discard the more your packing gets easier.
Sometimes you see things which could be of use to someone else but you don’t find any use for it. So post an ad for that on any online selling site or ask friends if they want it. Machineries on websites, books to the library and old toys to the orphanage helps in making the packages lighter and packing easier.
Essentials all together
In different cartons pack different essentials like in one pack all the utensils together, in other pack the books and paper stuff, in yet another pack the DVDS and other gaming CDS. Bifurcate according to their genre of usage. This will help to find what is where when you need it.
Safeguard your docs and ornaments
Documents, Ornaments and laptop with their chargers needs to be kept safely with only you if possible. So, you should keep those packages with you while shifting to the other place in the car with the other packages.
Handling the electronics
Handle all the electronic appliances with care. A little mistake can make you pay a big amount. Also, about the connection part recognise the type how your electronic appliance was connected. You can click a picture of that which can help you later on while reconnecting.
Address update and contact with neighbours
You must inform the concerned service authorities about your change in address at least two to three weeks prior to moving. And also inform your relatives and old neighbours about your new address and also when you get into a new place go to your new neighbours, introduce yourself to them and talk to them to make a good relation in the neighbourhood. They can always come in handy when you need help.
WHILE PACKING WE SHOULD ONLY KEEP THOSE THINGS WITH US WHICH ARE OF USE, NOT THE JUNK WHICH WE HAVE ACCUMULATED DURING THE YEARS WITH US. THE MORE JUNK YOU DISCARD THE MORE YOUR PACKING GETS EASIER.
Dreams, goals, ambitions - these are the stuff man uses for fuel.
