Moving can be tough. No one ever said it was a piece of cake but of course there are ways to make the stress less and the hassle nothing to worry about. There are various tips, tricks and techniques out there and not to mention handy professional teams to seek help from. However it is still fairly easy to fall trap into the common moving mistakes especially if you haven’t educated yourself properly regarding the process. Luckily, Amber Moves is here to warn us about the said pitfalls. Heed up!
Mistake # 1: ALL ON YOUR OWN – We could all be stubborn at times and refuse to ask for help when we need to. Relocations need a whole lot of time and effort and if your schedule does not permit, you have way too many stuff to work with or are moving really far away then don’t make the mistake of doing everything all on your own. You should call the help of friends, family or even get the services of professional movers.
Mistake # 2: NO PLANNING – You have to plan everything down and even schedule things especially with regard to packing. This not only serves as your guide but will also keep things flowing smoothly as you have a road map to guide you.
Mistake # 3: LACK OF FALLBACK – In a span of months a lot of things can happen so it is necessary that you create a fallback plan in case of adversities such as natural calamities, change in work schedule, etcetera.
Mistake # 4: WRONG PACKING SUPPLIES – Be sure that you have with you the right packing supplies. Remember that there are various items that will best protect certain belongings. Wardrobe boxes for hanged clothes and dish barrels for china, glasses and bowls are a few examples.
Mistake # 5: TOO MUCH SUPPLY – Likewise having way too many supplies is a bad thing especially if you have no use for them. Make an inventory of your item so you only buy what you need and don’t buy the entire hardware store.
Mistake # 6: CRAMPED UP – Additionally, people tend to put way too much items in one container. Doing so will only make the box heavier which might make it too hefty to carry around. Plus, it could burst up in no time.
Mistake # 7: LACK OF VEHICLE SPACE – Another thing that many individuals fail at is regarding the moving truck. Be sure that you know how many and how big your items are so you could get the appropriate vehicle.
Those are all the moving mistakes that Amber Moves warns us about. Be careful not to fall trap!
