Planning ahead for your move will make it less stressful and a more positive experience. Although this is not always possible, here are a few tips and techniques to make your move easier.
1. If you hire a moving company they will pack everything for you, however you should pack your important paperwork and any sentimental items. If you have children allow them to help by packing their toys.
2. Make sure that you are there when the movers are packing your stuff.
3. Make sure that all boxes are clearly labeled on both the top of the box and on at least one other side of each box. Be sure the boxes are clearly labeled with which room they should go into. If you are using movers label the bedrooms at the new house the same way you labeled the boxes.
4. If you want to save money and still use the movers you should pack your stuff yourself.
5. If you have any friends or families that have borrowed any of your items this is the time to ask for them back. This would also be a good time for you to return any items that you have loaned from family and friends.
6. If you have lots of books please consider either packing them in lots of small boxes or spreading them out among your furniture, such as cabinets and drawers.
7. Do not store breakables or heavy items in drawers!
8. Make sure all the furniture and drawers are empty. It's much safer for the structure of it and makes it easier to carry.
9. Use thick tape and make a across mirrors and picture glass so that if the glass is accidentally broken during the move there is less glass to clean up.
10. To remove sticky residue from tape and other adhesive products you can use mineral oil, baby oil, eucalyptus oil, or goop remover.
11. Make a list of any new items you may need for the new house.
12. Please keep aside any cleaning equipment so that you may use it right away at your new house. Please include in this list light bulbs!
13. Before you pack any of your appliances please clean them thoroughly and let them dry completely. Especially tip all the crumbs out of the toaster.
14. Be sure to clean out your refrigerator and freezer really well before moving them. To prevent the fridge from smelling use one of these ideas: wipe out the fridge with a damp cloth with vanilla essence, dry out the fridge with a hair dryer especially the corners, and/or put silica gel in the fresh department or fine blend coffee in a piece of muslin, these will soak up any extra moisture. When you have cleaned out the fridge and defrosted the freezer keep the doors slightly open to keep the air circulating just before you move them.
15. If you are moving with children show them around the new house just before your move in and answer any questions they may have.
16. See if any of the neighbors have any kids around the same age as your children.
17. Introduce yourselves to your new neighbors.
18. Look around your new neighborhood to find out where the local hospitals are located as well as restaurants and various forms of entertainment.
19. Ask your current attorney, doctor, and dentist for their recommendations on professionals in your new neighborhood.
20. Be sure to transfer any medical records and school records.
21. Be sure to remember to discontinue the following services at your old home: gas, electric, water, phone, newspaper, cable TV, DSL and other local nternet services if you have them, and cellular phone.
22. Be sure to notify the following of your change of address: post office, credit cards, insurance, magazines, and bank.
23. If you have any pets, it will probably be best to move them first and find a quiet place for them while all the moving is happening. For example if you have cats put them in a bathroom with their food, water, and litter box (on the opposite side of the room away from the food). Then leave a note on the door "Please do not enter!" If you have outside dogs put them in the backyard so that they can get used to their new environment and if you have lots of windows inside they can watch everything that is going on.
24. Smaller caged pets especially easily stressed animals should be moved last after all the excitement has settled down.
If you plan your move very carefully and use some of the above advise you may find the move relaxing and a little bit fun. If it gets too stressful take a break and find something to laugh about, you will probably feel better. Just remember you can take your time with unpacking and this is a perfect opportunity to completely reorganize your home.
Moving cartons. We recommend you use clean cartons specifically designed for moving. Second-hand boxes obtained from grocery and liquor stores are not always clean and may not withstand the weight of items you'll be putting in them. Their odd sizes also tend to make awkward.
Important: Ask your Moving Consultant about items that cannot be included with your shipment - flammables, varnishes, thinners, propane tanks, kerosene, oil, bottled gas, aerosol cans, nail polish and remover, ammunition, explosives, corrosives and cleaning fluids are some examples.
Tip: Pack heavy items in small boxes - light items in larger ones. Try not to let the weight of any carton exceed 20 - 25 lbs.
When we pack. When you arrange for packing services, a crew will be sent to your home either the day before or the morning of your scheduled loading day (depending on your packing needs). An Alliance moving packing crew is made up of trained, uniformed professionals - experts at protecting all household goods against the rigours of transport. Our packing crews will use only new packing materials - specially designed moving cartons, bubble wrap, stretch wrap, special packing tissues, unprinted newsprint, etc. They may also disassemble large or awkward items for better protection and handling.
When you arrange for unpacking services at the destination, our unpacking crews are equally skilled and professional - reassembling items where necessary and leaving your new home clean, organized and free of packing materials and debris. Important: Before packing medicine and toiletry items, make sure that their caps and lids are tightly secured.
Tip: Designate one drawer of a dresser for a telephone, toiletries, and other essentials for easy access at destination. Drawers can be left full so long as the weight is reasonable and contents are prevented from shifting. Please ensure there are no breakable items in bedroom dressers.
When you pack. If you'll be doing some packing yourself, it's best to spread the job over several weeks prior to moving day. Here are some packing tips: Wrap miniature knick-knacks in brightly colored paper so they won't get mistakenly thrown away with the wrapping paper. Write a general description of contents along with room allocations on the top and front of each carton. Use dot stickers to color-code your cartons. At your new home, you can then hang like-colored balloons over doors to indicate room allocation.
When wrapping, use only unprinted newsprint (available through your Moving Consultant). The ink from regular newspapers can soil your possessions. Personally transport irreplaceable items (financial and legal document, passports, jewelry, precious photos, medical and family history records).
Important: Pack a box of essentials - toilet paper, a telephone, toothpaste and brushes, snacks, coffee and a coffee pot, soap, a flashlight, a screwdriver, pliers, a can-opener, paper plates, cups and ustensils, a couple of pans, and paper towels - so you can get at them quickly when you arrive at your new home.
Plants, computers and electronics. Plants: While plants can often be safely transported, their survival is never a sure bet. Since they can make great parting gifts for neighbours, friends, and family, Alliance moving recommends you consider giving them up (for adoption). If you choose to move them:
Exposing your plants to extra sunlight for several weeks will provides them with the extra energy they need for the trip. Prune back overgrown leaves and branches about a month before moving, and reduce feeding to minimize growth. Never let plant leaves rest against a car or truck window as the leaves will scorch.
Computers & electronics: Be sure to remove all CDs from your CDplayer. Detach paper holders/feeders from printers. "Park" your computer's hard drive (check your PC's User Guide for information) Wrap individual component inside clean plastic bags and pad corners with newsprint or bubble-wrap. Fill packed carton with styrofoam peanuts, seal, and mark (Extremely Fragile). Important: Be sure not to pack your computer disk, CD's, or cassettes near magnets (such as those found in stereo speakers). Tip: If they're available, the original carton and packing materials are best for safeguarding your computer
