The last thing you want with an interstate move is to add more stress for yourself. You want to make sure that you move through the moving process as smoothly as possible. There are several ways you can do this, especially when you are working with removalists. Here are three ways to make your interstate move with removalists easier on you and less stressful in the long run.
One Week of Essentials
Anything can happen during a move that could delay your items showing up to their new location on time. Anything from a natural disaster to traffic rerouting can delay the removalist company for a day or longer. With that in mind, you should consider packing one week of essentials to go with you. This will ensure that you have the basics you need to get by until your items do arrive. This can reduce stress greatly, help reduce the chance of having to spend more money, and allow you to be comfortable while you wait. Some of these items should be extra electronics chargers, changes of clothing, and some snacks.
Pack and Label by Room
Instead of packing items and labeling by the items in the box, consider packing each room and labeling the boxes for that room. For example, if you are packing up your bedroom items, label all the boxes for that room as master bedroom or the person's bedroom the box corresponds to. This will allow you to take all the boxes for your bedroom, your children's bedrooms, kitchen, living room, and other parts of the house directly to those rooms in the new home. You can unpack them in the proper rooms without getting items mixed up or lost.
Pictures of Important Items
If you have expensive or important items, make sure you take pictures of each one of them. Document your items and keep the documentation with you. If the items are lost, you will have documentation of what they looked like, their serial numbers, and other related information. This will help to either replace the items or locate them if they are stolen. If these issues arise, having the documentation will save you time and help you to remain calm during the process.
These are only three of the ways to make your interstate move with removalists easier and less stressful. Make sure you are looking into each option the removalists offer as well. Some of their options can make the move even easier on you and help reduce your stress even more.Share
