Important Essentials To Remember Before Moving

April 29, 2021

As fun as a residential move can seem in the beginning, it is important to plan accordingly in order for all of it to run smoothly. This means, on top of many other things, prioritizing what is important to get done. Here at Augusta Movers, we have come up with a list of things to make sure to do before beginning the moving process.  

Hire Professionals Or Get Help From Loved Ones/Friends? 

Wanting people to help us with things in our lives is completely common and normal. When it comes to moving an entire house worth of stuff, however, this job is better left for the professionals in the field. Be sure to figure out what you can and can’t afford by coming up with a small budget list. Make sure to do ample research and find the moving company that best suits your needs and living situation (large home, small home, office, apartment, etc). Certain companies will ask for an extra fee to pack everything for you. If you feel as though this is a job you can do on your own, pack with help from your loved ones and leave the heavy lifting to the experts. This way, you are saving any extra fees and costs by doing the work by yourself.  

Only Take What You Need 

This is a time to really clean up the clutter from your previous home. Any old clothes you have not worn in ages, or books you never got to reading, all of these things can be put to a second hand store for someone else to buy. This not only makes your moving process much easier and organized, but also makes you feel good in the process.  

Create A List Of Things To Do/Stuff To Bring 

This is crucial in order to make sure you do not forget anything important. Whether it is something you own, or something to do, you don’t want to leave any of these two things behind. When you create organized lists for certain actions you have to take/things you have to pack, it makes for an all around efficient and less stressful move.  

From One Place To Another 

Packing as well as hiring a reliable service are two important things to get done, but what is just as important is figuring out how you are going to get from point A to point B in a smooth and timely manner. Make sure that the essential items are moved into your home first- this will make for a much easier moving process that can go on without the worry of being uncomfortable in your new space.  

Once You Have Arrived 

The whole moving process is quite taxing, but once you have arrived to your new area and are fully settled, be sure to explore your new space. Your once favourite coffee stops/grocery stores will most likely be far from your reach now. Now is the time to find new areas of interest, as well as meet and greet your new neighbours. This will give you an extra feeling of comfort and relaxation when you are going through this exciting, but often difficult transition.
