Planning is generally accepted as being the most important performative action you can do when you’re moving home, and rightly so. Plan ahead of time, detail every step of the way and avoid failure and subsequent disappointment and lengthy delays. If you haven’t moved home before, then begin by getting an understanding of what’s involved in the process of moving, and ask friends and family and for tips, helpful advice, and know how. Figure out what you want from your new property, and devise a list of must-have features and ones that would be a bonus to have but fail to be strictly necessary.

Transportation

You want every one of your possessions to arrive at your new home safely and intact. If you have concerns about some expensive pieces of furniture in your home, then consider having them insured before transit. Choose a professional transportation company that has a reputable and reliable history of service. Miami movers can help you get settled by moving your items safely and on time. Be sure to pack your boxes securely, and don’t make the mistake of placing heavy items in with glass, pottery, and other delicate pieces. Instead of using many layers of single-use plastic, try fashioning pieces of fabric to wrap around easily breakable items.

Make A Plan

As aforementioned, a detailed plan is going to help make your move easier. Once you have had your offer accepted and your loan for moving pre-approved, then it’s time to get the ball rolling, so to speak. Prepare early, and make an itinerary of all the items in your current home. Having said this, before listing your possessions, clean out every last item that you don’t want to take with you. Sort through each and every room in your home and remove things that no longer serve a purpose to you or hold a sentimental attachment. Save on the cost of fuel by lessening your load to transport too. Donate what you don’t want to charity, or recycle broken or damaged articles.

Ask Questions

Ask those you have moved before for words of wisdom and useful tips and tricks. Ask friends and family members, and take a notebook along with you. For all legal inquiries, source a good conveyance solicitor to answer questions pertaining to the move and mortgage advice. Make a list of questions you wish to ask at each step of the way to gain a greater understanding of what’s to come and to be prepared for moving and leaving your old place. Find out when and if you need to perform a professional deep clean, and all about the neighborhood you’re moving to.

Research Neighborhood

It’s very important to move somewhere that you can be happy, safe, and feel part of a friendly community. To ensure that your new home brings you happiness and satisfaction, carry out some preliminary checks and research potential areas of interest. Try and look for accessible transport links to the airport, as well as proximity to work, and distances to schools and colleges. Look through the local news to make sure that everything is in order, and that it has a low crime rate and a good reputation for being safe. Get an idea of what the place is like to live in by visiting and staying nearby. Talk to some of those who live in the neighborhood and ask for their thoughts, walk around within a 2 km radius and see what the land has to offer in terms of green space, facilities, and attractions, and lastly, gauge how much traffic passes through and how busy the roads get close to your potential new home.

Packing Up

Packing up, for you, needn’t be the taxing process it has the reputation of being. Get ahead and source recyclable boxes a few months in advance, and store them flat packed in your garage or in a dry space. Closer to the date of your move, assemble them and label them clearly using a thick waterproof marker pen. Begin by packing one room at a time, but be sure to keep essential items that you’re going to need out of the boxes and into one labeled “essentials.” Before placing your belongings into the boxes, consider giving them a wipe down and a dust if needed. Sort by category to make the unpacking process easy too. Label which room each box came from so that you can unpack them in applicable spaces and save yourself the hassle and ordeal of moving items around when you’re tired and eager to get your new property organized as soon as possible.
