Valuables and paperwork are essentials for you and your home, and its often worth packing these up and moving them with you rather than letting the removals company move them.
just so you have them to hand and they dont get lost.
If you happen to have older kids or teenagers you can get them involved using the same techniques or maybe a simple promise of a night out on their new town. Take them out to see a movie, go to the mall or out to eat at a local popular eatery. Try being creative, Calgary is a fun town for all ages. Museums, theme parks, theatres, plays, sport complexes or school groups.
So heres a summary of what are some very useful moving tips (from furniture movers Calgary) :
Moving house costs.
Why would you want to add to this cost by paying to move things you dont use or need?
We all have items in our house that have long been forgotten usually ending up in the garage, loft or shed, but they could be lurking anywhere.
Before you start your packing is the perfect time to go through everything and have a good sort out.
Moving is a fresh start, so the last thing you want to take with you are things that you dont need or use any longer.
Decluttering before you sell means that you only move what you really need and you will not only save money by doing so, but you will also save time in the new house by not having to unpack and deal with all that stuff in the future.
I call that a win-win!
Take a look behind your living room TV
What do you see?
Chances are its a mass of wires and plugs working perfectly for you but confusing to say the least.
A really great tip is to get some coloured stickers** and stick the same colour to each socket and each end of the cable so that you can easily set everything technical up in your new home.
To go one step further why not take a photo of the setup so you can have a visual reminder as well.
By now your car will be very full! (valuables, paperwork, essentials box and a box for each child), but theres one thing extra thats worth taking with you and that is bedding.
If you have your bedding ready to go when you get to your home whether you arrive late at night or have more time to unpack, you know that you have something to sleep on and be more comfortable on that first night.
After all things can go slowly on moving day, and you may not get your keys until its really too late to start unpacking so best be prepared!.
