Save Time Relocating
Moving often means a lot of stress and a lot of money. Relocating your home or office can be a really daunting experience, no matter how much you’re looking forward to the new view or new premises. Enjoying the easiest, most hassle free experience during your move is all in the planning. It might sound a little silly to prepare so much, but you’ll be surprised how much time you can save and how much easier everything becomes when you put a little thought into your “moving strategy” beforehand.
Preparation – Trimming the load and planning ahead
Relocating is the perfect time to shave off the excess. Get out the garbage bags or order a skip bin and start going through the office or home a week or two before you have to be packed up and ready to go. Having a clear idea of what you’re really going to be taking with you can save you money and time in all sorts of areas. If you need to rent a short term or long term unit for storage you’ll know that you’re paying for the right size when you can clearly see what you will and won’t be taking with you.
Measure up your new space and make sure everything fits before you start moving couches and desks – if it doesn’t fit the measurements – sell or give it away. You’ll save time not attempting to cram in furniture or hauling heavy items back and forth between locations.
Rent a Truck, Hire a Trailer, Pay the Experts – Be Prepared
A one day move can turn into a four day project without the right tools. Decide whether you’re going to save time and hassle by calling in the professionals or whether you’re going to try save some money by doing it yourself. Look around for good rates on size-able truck rentals or plan with a company who can tackle the job for you.
When you’ve stripped down to what you’ll actually be taking with you, having enough space for everything and not having to tie down a dodgy trailer load is going to save you a lot of time as well as frustrations and potential losses. It always pays to spend a little extra on what “will” get the job done rather than rely on a friend with an old trailer that “might” get the job done.
Enjoy Your Move
It sounds like an oxymoron, but with a bit of planning ahead your move doesn’t have to be painful, stressful or time-consuming. Be organised, make it easy on yourself and you’ll find yourself enjoying and appreciating your new home or business premises even more.
