Moving is a BIG Job
By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group
1) Poor Planning
Create a detailed plan for your move, one which explains everything you need to accomplish and incorporate a timetable with due dates. Be sure and assign someone to each task.
Why pack up your things now if you can delay it until later, right? Wrong! When you find yourself continually postponing things, you could be setting yourself up for a troublesome moving day. Whether it is confirming professional movers in Denver or purging your stuff, procrastination may induce delays as well as increased costs. Don’t put off tasks on your schedule. Create your moving timeline and then stay on schedule.
3) Moving Too Much
Let’s face it, the majority of people have a bunch of things in their residences that they don’t use. So, when it’s time to load up and move, if you simply assume that every little thing must go with you, your move might be more expensive and take more time. Before you commence packing, dedicate a bit of time to go through your things. Don’t plan on moving items that are in disrepair, that you will not use and that you just do not need. It is also a smart notion to assess bulky items, because they could cost more to move than they are worth, and also they might be difficult to find a place for them in your new house.
4) Missing Packing Deadlines
The movers will arrive in the morning. Your belongings aren’t even close to being packed up currently, and so you hurry around like a delirious person and squeeze things into the boxes you have onhand. Poor packing makes it more possible that things will get broken in transit. Substandard labeling can make it harder to find things while you are unpacking. When you don’t get all your things packed up before the professional movers in Denver arrive, you will be trying to pack as the movers are loading up the moving van. Or worse, the movers might cancel for the day and tell you to call your customer service coordinator to reschedule to a different day. Don’t dawdle. Begin packing well in advance of your move date.
5) Doing too Much Yourself
There is a spot at which moving will be too much for a single person. Employing professional movers in Denver and having the moving company pack your stuff are glaring things to do to lighten your workload. Yet there are additional ways to get help. You could ask friends to help you hold a yard sale or to watch your children or pets while you are packing. In addition, some charitable organizations can come and pick up your items to donate, which can save you a trip to the drop off location. You might consider hiring a cleaning service to take care of your old residence after you leave and to also deep clean your new home ahead of when you move in. And lastly, be certain that the whole family is assisting with moving related jobs. Even the younger kids could be given age-appropriate jobs.
Frequently throughout the moving process, it is not uncommon to question, “Why is this so much work?”. But alas, if you steer clear of the pitfalls mentioned above, hopefully your move will go smoothly.
