When one finally musters up the courage to make the rather daunting decision that they want to move, it can be one of the most overwhelming experiences. The mere thought of having to move with everything you have ever owned feels so overwhelming. It is very easy to fall back into your mess, given the lack of intelligent planning and managing techniques. This article aims to walk you through anything that can be of your use during this tedious process.

1. Hire your movers

This may seem like something a vast majority of the people would like to do after they have all their things in one place, and all that is left to do is to relocate them, but that is never a correct approach to go about this. You should always hire movers as soon as you decide to move. Why? Because you never know. One should always plan to keep all the possible scenarios of what could go wrong in their mind. So, it is advisable to hire a cooperative moving company before you start packing to move.

2. Budget your move

Another reason you would want to initiate your moving ordeal with hiring the right movers is that moving and relocating companies, which on the one hand are essential, are very expensive on the other hand. So, any budget you put aside for this even in your life, the first thing you should get out of the way should be paying off the moving companies so you would not have to worry about separating a crazy amount later. You can easily adjust and mould the remaining budget to meet the rest of your expenses.

3. Boxes, boxes, boxes

When anyone tries even to picture moving in their head, they see lots of cartons and boxes. Boxes and cartons are the main media preferred for storage and relocation. Your first approach would be to try and save boxes you got when you were buying stuff, if any, for your new place and look for any old cartons lying around your house. Now you would need to buy more boxes but this way you’d save some cash which you would've spent on, let’s say the ten boxes that were just lying around.

4. Packing order for the move

You really cannot just randomly put everything in a box and seal it up. You have to go in order, and the smartest and the most practical approach would be packing the things you do not need daily first. You need to realize that packing is a stretch, and you can’t have essentials you need every day like toothbrushes, pillows, plates to eat out of all packed up into boxes. You are still going to be living in the same house for a few days before you move. So pack the things of daily use at last.

5. Labelling your boxes

You also need to understand that you are not just going to be packing. You have to unpack all this so you cannot have a hundred boxes lying around at your new place without you having even the slightest idea of where everything is. This is why you need to keep stuff of a particular category in one box and label the box. An example can be if you’re packing your washrooms, so things like shampoo bottles, cleansers, soaps, shaving kits, and towels would go in one box to label toiletries. To make it more efficient and easier, you can also write the unpacking order along with the label of the box contents on it like a box that holds your sleeping essentials or eating essentials should be given top priorities while unpacking because unpacking will take more time to accomplish than did the packing. You cannot go all these days without food, water or sleep.

6. Fragile symbols

This has got to be by far the most important thing you need to do out of all the things we have discussed. Moving means a lot of lifting and lowering and sometimes even throwing. You do not want all your expensive cutlery, nice decoration pieces, and other breakables to be completely smashed by the time you unpack. That is why a large and visible "FRAGILE HANDLE WITH CARE" label is to be placed on all boxes carrying breakables so moving companies could handle it accordingly.

7. Bubble wraps and thermos pore sheets

You'll be placing multiple items in a single box when you move. You also need to consider that some items can break or be destroyed only by repeatedly colliding with other items in the box. For that, you need to wrap any such items you think are susceptible to collision damage into bubble wraps or separate them by thermos pore sheets to provide that safety factor and the necessary shock absorption.

Recommendations for a moving company

It's hard to believe, but in addition to your planning, your choice of a moving company will make everything easier for you. While hiring a moving company, you would want to keep in mind how professional they are, what quality of services they provide, can they be trusted with your valuables, and do they really care?
