Moving Day Mistakes
Trust me, I've seen it all before - from boxes with no labels to furniture that won't fit through the door. But don't worry, I've got you covered with some easy tips to help you move with ease.
- Not Labeling Boxes
It may seem obvious, but not labeling boxes can lead to big headache on moving day.
Imagine trying to find your toothbrush or your kid’s favorite toy in a sea of unmarked boxes. Take time to label each box clearly with its contents and the room it belongs in.
- Not Measuring Carefully
Furniture that fit perfectly in your old home may not fit so well in your new space.
Before moving day, measure your furniture and the rooms in your new home to ensure everything fits properly. (Trust me, you don’t want to end up with a couch that won’t fit through the door!).
- Forgetting to Pack Essentials
Don’t forget to pack a bag of essentials for your first night in your new home, like toiletries, a change of clothes, bedding, and any medications you may need.
- Not Hiring Professional Movers
While it may be tempting to save some money and move everything yourself, hiring professional movers may be worth the investment.
Not only will they have the equipment and expertise to move your belongings safely, but they’ll also save you a lot of time and stress come moving day.
- Failing to Update Your Address
Finally, one of the most common moving day mistakes is forgetting to update your address.
Make a list of all the places you’ll need to update, such as your bank, credit cards, and utilities. You don’t want to miss important mail or bills because you forgot to update your address.
