The Four Aspects of Moving
If you are wondering what all the things that come with relocation are, you have come to the right place. Here we will tell you where you need to keep your attention, if you want your move to be as worry-free as possible.
Before we dive into the different aspects, here is something important. Everything can be made easier if you are willing to shell out some money and hire reputable Chicago movers to give you a hand with your relocation needs. However, this is not always necessary, especially if you want to save some cash.
A good move starts by organizing everything well. If you are not properly prepared, you will not have a good experience. During this phase you should go through your items and figure out what to throw out. Maybe give something away or gift it to a friend. In our homes we have way too many items, most of which we never use. Get rid of those.
Also make sure you note which pieces of furniture can be properly disassembled and which cannot. If some of them cannot be, then you will need to figure out a way to move them without hurting yourself, someone else, the place you are leaving or the furniture thereof.
After you have organized everything, there comes the time for packing. This is arguably the most important phase of all, because it is extremely underrated. Not all people know how to pack properly. Actually, most don’t and that likely includes you.
Go out of your way to learn a little bit more about packing. The different practices are going to be useful every time you have to move and they will save you a lot of trouble down the road. Plus, you will end up needing way fewer boxes than usual.
If you only have to load boxes, the practice is extremely simple – heavy boxes at the bottom of the truck, light boxes at the top. That’s how you stack them. But things can get quite difficult if we have to incorporate moving furniture that can’t be disassembled.
For that case you’d likely need a truck and at that point you can’t have a go at moving completely on your own. You’d need professionals and they will also take care of moving the furniture around. So at least that’s something you don’t have to worry about.
This is arguably the easiest phase of all. Because it simply takes everything you have to your new place. Depending on your situation you have either hired movers to transport everything for you, or you have rented a small truck and loaded it yourself.
We can go on telling you to drive carefully and mind your surroundings, but that is something you already know. So from here on out we are wishing you to have a safe move and don’t forget to do your research – always.
