Whether it’s a household or a new office space you are shifting, make sure you’ve packed everything before the day of the actual move, except some last-minute necessities.
Make sure you have scheduled to disconnect all your utilities on the day of the move and also cancel any newspaper and cable subscriptions.
Making preparations to move will save you time and money on the day when you carry out the move.
When it comes to packing stuff, many people just throw their stuff in large boxes and load them up into a vehicle. Not only is this inefficient but it may also damage your belongings.
When packing stuff, make sure you pack everything according to its condition/state. Fragile materials should be packed separately with packing material or clothes as padding between them. This helps to avoid breaking stuff.
Plates should be stacked like records for more safety, with padding between the plates. Try to cover all liquids with cling wrap on their mouth before you put the lid on to avoid leaks.
The heavier stuff should go always go at the bottom of the boxes with lighter stuff on top.
You can also label boxes according to the stuff inside it as well as the name of the room, which it will go to. This comes in handy while unpacking.
Try to count all your belongings (number of boxes) and check before you leave for anything left behind.
Once you’ve packed things up and hired a vehicle from the professionals at UTE and Truck Rentals Gladesville, it’s time to load up.
Start by putting the heavier boxes towards the front of the truck or the UTE. This is to ensure that the vehicle maintains its balance. Put the lighter and more necessary items near the rear of the loading section. Lighter boxes will be out of the way quicker and easier while unloading, too.
Make sure you have estimated the size of your furniture before you hire a vehicle so you don’t have problems fitting it in at the time of loading.
Call a couple of friends over to help you load and unload. This will make the move exponentially faster. After you unload and return the vehicle, maybe treat your friends to a dinner or lunch at your new home?
