Happy Saturday! - Hope you have a great weekend! 👋
Ahh, moving. The excitement of a new place, the urge to purge old junk, and saying goodbye to a chapter of life. Moving can be a stressful experience, but with a bit of planning, it doesn't have to be. Check out some helpful tips from SimpliSafe to reduce the chaos often associated with transitioning from one home to another.
1. Prepare to handle with care
Own a precious vase? Is your TV your pride and joy? Make sure to keep the packaging for fragile and expensive items, so you don't have to fret about them in the move. Bubble wrap, begone! Just slide your item back into its fitted compartment.
2. Make your most useful belongings accessible
The last thing you want after moving into a new place is to have to dig through a jumble of belongings to find the stuff you need right away, such as clothes or cookware. So when packing, make sure you tuck away your home essentials somewhere easily accessible. A folding table you can pop up to eat on or use for a computer is fantastic to have at your disposal — a disassembled TV wall unit, not so much.
3. What goes up must come down
Whether it's your favorite piece of art or your kid's band poster stuck to the wall with putty or tape, remove everything from the walls slowly. When you put everything back up in your new home, use inexpensive, versatile wall mount adhesive strips where possible and more substantial mounting options for the heavier fine art.
4. Check in with your insurance agent
Most of your items are likely insured when in your home, but are they insured for transport? Call your insurance agent to verify or change your plan, especially if working with a moving company. Knock two things off your to-do list by helping your agent change your address and discuss the best insurance plan for your new home.
5. Update your address info
You want essential documents to be in the right place, so update your billing and mailing address for any and all services. Having your new address saved in a document to copy and paste makes it easy. And of course, put home services on hold during the moving process.
I hope you find these tips helpful. Every time I get the itch to move, I help a friend move, and that itch slowly goes away. 😉 Have a wonderful weekend, and if you have any moving tips you would like to share with me, please let me know!
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend!
