Moving is never easy, and making it flawless requires focus and lots of planning. But sometimes we don’t see the bigger picture and may miss the necessary steps which can save your relocation. Let’s see what they are.
- Don’t Underestimate Your Household Size.
If you are planning a relocation, especially if it’s a one-room studio, you may get too relaxed about it. It seems like not many things to move, and this is the first mistake. When you prepare everything for a relocation, you’ll see that all the possessions, together with furniture, kitchenware, toiletries, and clothes, take much space. Didn’t look like this before packing, right? If you plan to hire experienced movers, your belongings will be estimated. But if you are planning to do it on your own, it’s much harder to evaluate the amount of packing supplies, work, and time.
2. Say “No” To Procrastination.
If the first point was relevant, you might experience issues with lack of time, too. Underestimating your household may give you a feeling of spare time and no urge to start planning a relocation as soon as possible. Though, we advise avoiding it, too. And it’s not only because you can never know what obstacles will come on the way. Sometimes, until you get to the next step, you don’t foresee some things to consider. That’s why we urge you to start the moment you can; this way, it’s possible can prevent some moving mishaps.
3. Avoid Saving On Essentials.
What’s crucial for you mainly is individual, but we suggest to look at the most common examples.
Re-use Packing Supplies
Usually, there’s nothing wrong with this idea; the easiest way to save some money on moving is to go to the nearest supermarket and ask for some spare cardboard boxes. But now, as the coronavirus is going to stay with us for a while, we recommend to order new boxes or rent plastic moving crates as they can be disinfected.
Move With Your Car
Even if you have a small studio, it may take you a couple of times to go back and forth. And it’s possible only if you don’t need to bring big furniture.
Hiring a truck may be an option if you don’t need help with loading boxes. During these bad days for health, we don’t advise you to ask friends and family who don’t share the house with you.
