Moving around the corner – What to know?

Moving to another state or moving around the corner – both are stressful, time, money and energy consuming. You have to pack, find a moving truck, load and unload it and do many other things in order to relocate properly. You can do this by yourself or hire a moving agency and not lift a finger. Either way, there are still many things you have to take care of before you move out for good. Here are some things that should be on your ‘moving around the corner’ checklist.

Have a Family Meeting

Having a family meeting when moving around the corner might seem redundant. But trust us, it is necessary. You have to talk about why this move is necessary and split the chores. All family members must be involved in the moving process. You all have to clean and pack in order to make this moving around the corner fast, easy and stress-free. This would also be a good time to decide what will you take with you to your new home and what will you leave behind, that is, it is a great time for purging and decluttering. Finally, you should all decide whether you want to do everything by yourself or leave it to professionals.

Declutter Your Home Before Moving Around the Corner!

Starting fresh is not going to be easy if you are moving all of your junk with you. Even moving around the corner requires a lot of cleaning and decluttering. It is a great way to do let go of some of the stuff you no longer need and make room for something new. So, do not get over sentimental. Things are replaceable. Junk removal should be the first thing you should do before moving around the corner. Prepare moving boxes, and pack only what is necessary. For other things you have 4 options:

  1. Throw away – If something is completely useless, damaged or broken, let it hit the bin.
  2. Donate – If you have something that is in good shape, but you no longer need it, donate it to your local charity.
  3. Sell it online – You can sell many things on Craigslist or on some social media accounts like Facebook or Instagram
  4. Organize a Yard Sale – Yard or garage sale is a great way to declutter your home, get rid of the junk and earn some extra cash.

Hire a Moving Agency!

When you are moving around the corner, you probably do not need a moving agency. However, bear in mind that you can not do everything by yourself and that at least your friend’s help is necessary. You will need help when packing, loading and unloading a moving truck, heavy lifting and many other things. So, if your friends or family members are not free to help you out, or you have to move on short notice, hire a moving agency! With them, you will have a stress-free relocation.
