For those of you that have moved on multiple occasions you know that each move can be a little bit different and bring about its own challenges. Whether it is getting the lease dates to match for moves, finding a rental truck, getting the right kind of packing materials, or finding friends who can help you move that day, or learning the tricks to moving up three flights of stairs each move is a little different.
However, even with all of the nuances that come with moving the basics are generally the same. Here are the four steps of moving that each person has to undertake.
1. Planning. Each moves requires some kind of planning. When is the exact day that you will move? How are you going to get all of your possessions from the old home to the new one? What last minute things, like cleaning to get a deposit back, must be done by a certain date? When do the utilities have to be moved over? There is any number of things that much be planned out. To help in the planning process be sure to use a calendar, and keep a list of questions so that you don’t forget anything.
2. Organizing. One of the most important things that you can do to help your life continue while you are in the process of moving is to remain organized. One of the easiest ways to do this is by adding a self storage Toronto storage unit to the moving and packing process. By adding a self storage unit you can begin packing and moving boxes into the unit. This will keep your home from being overrun by stacks and stacks of boxes and limiting the space you have to move around and continue packing.
3. Packing. Packing is an important step in the moving process. When it is time to begin to pack for the move ensure that you get quality materials. Get sturdy boxes, bubble wrap, tape, dividers, and any specialized materials that will help you to pack up your belongings and get them moved in the same condition you packed them. Remember to clearly distinguish any heavy boxes or containers holding fragile items. These items will need special attention when being moved into the self storage Toronto unit and again when being moved into the new home. Be sure and label each box with either the contents that it holds or if it is more generalized items distinguish what room it goes in. This will save you from having to move boxes more than once.
4. Moving. On the day of the move since you have followed the first three steps you will have planned out your move and be ready to go at the designated time. Load up the last few boxes that you had to save for last to pack. Since you have moved all of your boxes and furniture into a self storage Toronto space you will have already cleaned up to ensure you get a deposit back on apartment spaces but do one final walk through to make sure there is not any last minute touch ups needed. Now you are ready to move into your new home or apartment.
