Moving in together

Are you planning a move in early 2020? Here are useful tips to consider

Moving can be thought of as a fresh start, especially when moving at the beginning of the year. With 2020 being just days away, you may want to consider combining your New Year's resolutions with your moving plan. Having specific goals will help you remain organised and experience less stress during the move.

You may be wondering how you can synchronise the furniture removals process with your new year's resolutions. Here are some useful tips to consider.

1.    Start with proper arrangement

Being organised is the best way to ensure a stress-free move. Make sure you arrange all your items by using a specific strategy. A fun idea for the whole family is to use labels that have specific colours. For example, green labels may represent the kitchen while blue ones are for the bathroom.

Colour coding is also an excellent way of looking at what you have and upgrading as you go. For example, you may discover that your living room supplies are outdated and need a fresh touch. If moving across state lines, you may consider purchasing new items from shops that you know and trust before moving them to your new destination. Purchasing replacements in advance will also help you hit the ground running as soon as you get to your new home.   

2.    Eliminate clutter before moving day

Clutter is the enemy to a clean and comfortable home. Moving, especially at the beginning of a new year, is the best opportunity for eliminating clutter. Don't wait until the last minute to begin sorting through your items. A couple weeks before moving day, start determining what you wish to keep or get rid of.

This sorting should fall in line with your New Year's plans. For example, if you're looking to save money by downgrading, you may consider being very strict about what you wish to keep. You may also have the goal of settling in with a significant other or upgrading the items in your home. Getting rid of clutter will help you start afresh after the move.  

3.    Develop a plan for transporting furniture

If you have heavy furniture such as couches, upholstery and dinner tables, develop a plan for their safe transportation. Obviously, you should have a removalist by your side to help with the planning process. Furniture removalists can determine the best way for you to transport delicate furniture so you can begin arranging them afresh in your new home.
