Moving Made Easy – Think outside the Box
Moving home can be an exciting adventure, but when it’s time to pack, you may find yourself clueless as to where to begin.
At National Removals, we’ve put together some general and green inspired moving tips to help you through the big day with ease, so you can start enjoying your new home.
Basic Moving Tips:
- Create a’ change of address’ list of all the parties you need to notify (utilities, family, post office)
- Make a ‘Move Me First Box’ with your basic supplies needed for your first night (power cords, phone chargers, toilet paper)
- Make unpacking easy by labelling and color-coding your boxes by room
- Place all screws, nuts and bolts in small zip lock bags with any special tools such as allen keys and label clearly to make reassembly a breeze.
- Tape closed or place cling wrap under lids on all bottles of liquid
Think Outside the Box:
- Roll up your clothes instead of folding to save room
- Put a cotton pad in your makeup compacts so they don’t break
- Cut down on cardboard boxes by loading up laundry baskets, suitcases and bags
- Utilize every blanket, towel and sheet when packing breakables
- Take a photo of how your electronics are connected so you can remember where the wires go
- Keep wires organised by wrapping a rubber band around them and labelling
- Remove all bulbs before packing your lamps
Helpful Smartphone Apps for Moving Day:
- MagicPlan allows you to use pictures of your house to create a virtual floor plan that you can use to see if your furniture will fit in a particular position in your new house
- Evernote allows you to make lists, jot down quick notes so that you don’t forget anything on the day of your move
