“Be well-prepared for a new beginning!” – Kendih Rendo
The idea about moving to a new place is usually very exciting…at first. When you start the disassembling and packing, that is where frustration and dilemma comes in.
But don’t worry, Zovue pals! Just follow these tips and long distance move will never be a hassle for you.
1. Plan Ahead
Giving yourself six to eight months before the actual move out will help a lot. Strategic planning of which items to bring and to leave is very important. This will also give you time to choose carefully who among your friends deserve your pre-loved stuff. You don’t want to be bringing ALL your stuff and then later realize that you don’t actually need them in your new place.
2. Determine the best moving method for you.
You should choose the best moving method depending on your budget and the volume of things you are bringing. There are moving companies that offer hassle-free and “all-in” professional services but they are usually costly. Always ask for estimate and try to be accurate in the weight of your stuff so you will not go over budget. If you are determined to do cost cutting, you can always pack everything in your car and drive!
3. Take inventory
Inventory will be easier if you label your boxes by category and by number at the same time. This step is very important expecially if you will be hiring professional movers to ship your precious stuff for you. If possible, take a picture of the content of each box to be used as a reference when you unpack in your new home. This also makes the unpacking so much easier! You will instantly know which box you should unpack where.
4. Keep important papers with you
Yes, you can always pack important documents in your boxes but we suggest that you keep it with you at all times. Papers such as passports, birth certificates, special papers, insurance policies or auto registration are very easy misplace. You can’t afford to lose any of this when you are ready to start a new life.
