Are you planning to settle in the Land of Milk and Honey? If so, you need the services of a firm that offers international removals. However, prior to the mover’s arrival at your old residence to transport your things, you also need to prepare your things for the move.
1. 8 weeks prior to moving
Go through your belongings and decide which items you want to have moved, which ones you want to sell or give away, and which ones you need to get rid of. After the cleanup, you will be surprised at the sheer number of items that you don’t want cluttering in your new residence. During this time, you should start packing small items such as valuables, heirlooms, books, jewellery, and important documents. If you wait until the last minute, most likely you are going to misplace these items. Label the boxes to make it easier for you to identify what is inside when you take them out at your new abode. Furthermore, notify your bank, post office, insurance company, utility companies, and other entities regarding your change of address.
2. 5 weeks prior to moving
During this time, start to intensify your packing. Finalize the items that you are bringing with you. Additionally, you should start packing large appliances such as your TV sets, refrigerator, stereo, and the like. You should also start boxing in small furniture sets. Phone your friends, relatives, and colleagues, and tell them your new address and other information.
3. 2 weeks before moving
As the day of moving gets closer, it’s time to pack in your large furniture pieces and your clothes. Put them inside large boxes, and move them directly against the wall so they won’t block the hallway. By not allowing the hallway to be blocked, you make it easier for the company’s men to lift and carry the boxes to their truck. Don’t forget to label your boxes.
Finally, if you have pets, make sure that their affairs and documents are in order.
By following these tips, moving becomes easier and more convenient for both you and the moving company.
