Moving all of your belongings to a new home can be exciting, but it is sure to be stressful. Whether you are moving across the country or across town, every item you own still has to be packed and moved. It’s time-consuming, there is no way around that, but you can make it easier by doing a few simple things. Here are some ways you can avoid some of that stress from the start.
The first thing that will make your life easier during the move is to get rid of everything you know you don’t want at the new place. Getting rid of clutter will also get rid of stress. Clean items you are going to pack, so you don’t have to worry about unpacking dusty and dirty items. That will also give you another chance to evaluate if the item is something you want to make the trip with you. Donate, recycle and sell anything that won’t have a home in your new home.
Timing is everything
Begin packing anything that you don’t need to use during the process. Having things pre-packed along the way will make it easier to organize. You can get those items out of the way by renting a temporary self-storage unit. Make sure you label everything properly. If you are hiring someone to help with the move, then, for example, your Movers in Honolulu would go get your boxes from storage and put them directly in the rooms labeled on the boxes. Your items will arrive and be placed where you need them.
Get the right help
Having a company with the right kind of trucks to move large furniture and appliances will save a lot of stress in the long run. Some of that furniture can go to the self-storage units in advance as well. Before you start the packing process, get an estimate on short term storage. Any breakable items will need to be packed properly. Talk to your Movers in Honolulu before you start to see what they recommend. Packing framed pictures and dishes and large, odd shaped heirlooms can be challenging. Ask a professional for the best way to keep those precious items safe.
A little bit of planning ahead and asking questions of the right professionals can make your move a lot smoother, and the unpacking a lot more pleasant!
