Four helpful hits to making moving easier: Advice from a Relocation Specialist! Helpful hints to making moving easier! Good Preparation helps!
If you just bought a home. First let me congratulate you for a wise decision. Now on the other hand it does not matter if you bought a home in Los Angeles, or if you bought a home in Santa Monica or any of the other communities, the next step is virtually identical, if you are moving from one place to another.
Did you know that moving is considered or should I say ranked among life’s most stressful events? Now with that said moving can be made easier.
So how can moving be made easier you might ask me? Well the answer is: the only way this can be achieved is with the proper planning. The most important part is good preparation and keeping things organized. So in all fairness if you already bought your home you are a little behind the making moving easier process.
When you start the home searching process, that is when you should be starting on your preparation of moving as well!
My first advice is simple: start a file and place all receipts that are associated with the move. i.e.: all your expenses should be consolidated with the move for the sole purpose that, when you see your Accountant you can present him with all your move related expenses.
Second: Identify the “stuff” that you can live without. Then based on that decide what you want to “sell”, “donate” or just “toss” this all can be done while you are in your search mode for your next location. Start the process of getting rid of “stuff”
If you waited too long do not despair you can still catch up, after all most Escrow Periods are 30-45 days long, but you need to hurry.
Third: start labeling furniture peaces, so you can have an idea where they will be going. When the movers come you can have them deliver it in the right room of your new home. If you are really good, you can create a floor plan and mark the spots and let the movers know where you want each piece of furniture to be placed. You will be glad later!
Fourth: when you are packing items, remember to keep the boxes light enough for easier handling. Also pack similar items together i.e.: kitchen items, bedroom items…you get the idea. Make sure you label the boxes and if you have time create a content of each box and write on the outside “Open First/Load Last” these will be making your life easier at your new home!
