A short guide to moving

Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. Yes, this is how we accept the idea of ​​moving. Judge for yourself: “No, just not this”, then “Yes, why the hell should I disassemble this furniture!”. Then, of course, an innocent one: “Or maybe we’ll move next year, they say, and the course will improve.” This is followed by almost depression – “The move ruined him, – so write in my epitaph.” And the long-awaited acceptance: “Okay, what should I do?” It is at this stage that our guide to moving will come in handy.

How to independently competently organize an apartment move

There are no secret courses on how to organize transfers. And we will not even hide the fact that you need to prepare for it at least a month in advance. But, having in your hands a clear plan of action, time and energy, you can make the move a pleasant event, and housewarming is a real holiday – with champagne and olives, and not with a sedative and ointment for a sore back.

Preparing for the move

The organization of the apartment move begins a month before the move. Here it is like with a wedding: you spend money, nerves, time – and all for the sake of one day, at the end of which you will exhale and say: “Finally!”. And in order for the impressions of such a holiday to be positive, you need to properly prepare.

What you need to do a month before moving

Throw out all the trash and sell excess furniture and things. Over the years, the house is always overgrown with things, many of which are no longer needed. Sewing machines, old household appliances, books, clothes that are no longer of value to you may be useful to someone else. If you decide to sell, set minimum prices so that things will fly apart in a month. Otherwise, you will have to carry it all to the trash on the day of the move, or even worse – drag it with a creak to a new apartment.

Terminate contracts with service companies so that you do not receive bills for the Internet, telephone or utilities that you no longer use.

Choose a moving date and place an order with a moving service Seattle. If you forget this, then ordering a car and movers day after day is unlikely to work, so choose the exact day and stick to this plan.

Collect all documents in one folder. Moving is an exciting process, and while we have not yet switched to full digital format for all documents, paperwork is very important. Buy a bright, roomy folder with compartments for all your documents so you can easily find any paper when needed.

Rescue suitcase. Pack one bag with everything you need: toothbrush, hairbrush, clean T-shirt, first aid kit, snacks, bottle of water, etc. Even if something does not go according to plan, the essentials will always be at hand while the force majeure is settled.

A box with valuables. It is better to put “Gold-Diamonds” in a separate box and keep it with you. This is your carry-on baggage on the flight to your new apartment – it is safer and safer.

Disassembly of furniture. Disassemble (or entrust it to our movers) all the furniture you can. It is in disassembled form that it is most convenient and safest to transport it.
