Deciding to make the move into a new home is exciting but it can also be stressful and overwhelming. Winnipeg Real Estate News have put together a checklist of tips that can help make your moving experience seamless. Here are the top 6 that we recommend to make your moving day a positive experience:
1. Pack as early as possible
It’s easy to procrastinate packing especially if there’s still a few weeks before your move. Start by packing up things that are the least essential, this way items can slowly get moved into boxes. You’ll be more organized closer to your move date and packing won’t be so stressful. This might also be a great opportunity to donate, purge or sell items that are no longer useful to you. Consider creating a list of everything you need to pack each week to ensure you’re on the right track for time.
Arrange for children and pets to go elsewhere for a day or two, if possible, allowing time to organize with less distraction. Sometimes pets could become traumatized by a move, it’s best to find a sitter for Spot.
As mentioned above, setting up your kitchen first will come in handy for when it’s time to eat. Another option is to get foods that don’t involve much kitchen ware, like sandwiches or veggies and dip, even ordering in from a nearby restaurant so there’s not much mess afterwards.
With these 6 helpful moving day tips, we hope your move will be hassle free and you get to take the time to enjoy your day and celebrate your new home!
