Preparing for your move into your CLV Group Hamilton apartment? Whether you’re moving to a new city or simply moving a few blocks, preparation is key to a stress-free move.
All too often, people are left scrambling trying to get everything in order a few nights before the big move, but moving doesn’t have to be a chaotic and stressful process. All you need to do is prepare! To help you prepare and ease the stress out of your big move, here are some steps to follow for getting ready for moving day.
Get a Head Start on Packing
Starting your packing early is always a good idea. Starting as early as possible is one of the most important factors for making your move go as smoothly as possible. Grab some boxes and get started, bit by bit each day and you will get through everything quickly and without becoming overwhelmed!
De-Junk your Stuff
Moving presents the perfect opportunity to go through all of those drawers and closets to finally purge and de-clutter the things you no longer use! Whether it’s old furniture, clothes or even electronics, this is the time to be strict and give away or throw away what you no longer use. Plus, it will save you time, effort and even money when it’s time to move into your new home.
DIY or Professional Movers
It’s also wise to make a decision early about how you plan on tackling your moving day. Will this be a DIY move where you enlist or bribe some of your dearest friends to help you? Or do you want the freedom to sit back and watch professional movers tackle the heavy lifting for you? Either way, contacting your friends or a moving company well in advance to book the day and time is essential. Have all the details set, along with confirmation that you’ll have the help you need when the day arrives.
Sort Out All of Your Accounts
Whether it’s utilities, internet, cable, magazine subscriptions, start making the arrangements to change your address early. Cancel old accounts, update your new address and wherever possible, ensure that your required utilities will be up and running when you arrive in your new home.
Preparation is essential for keeping your moving day under control and stress free. Get an early start and use the time that you have now to avoid last minute chaos when the day arrives to move into your new apartment in Hamilton.
