When you know that you are going to have to move there are several steps that need to be taken. The moving process is not always easy because there is a lot that has to be done. You need to of course procure a place to move to and arrange for a moving company to move your belongings. Some of the things that should be done are not always considered. The reason that people skip them is because they don’t understand the importance of them. You want to make sure that you don’t fall victim to some very common moving mistakes. These can make your move much more stressful and that is why you should avoid them. Prodigy Moving & Storage outlines some of the common moving mistakes you need to avoid.
Packing Heavy Items in Wrong Boxes
When you are looking around the house at what you need to pack it is a good idea to plan ahead. A big mistake that people make is to take all their heavy items and place them in a large box. One of the most common items that are heavy and packed wrong are books. A few books can start to weigh a lot and that is why you should avoid putting too many in a box that is too large. The problem is that now someone has to try and move that box from the house to the truck then to a new place. That is a lot of moving and it can be dangerous if a box is over packed. The better option is to use several small boxes to pack your books in. They are easier to manage and the books or heavy items will remain safe.
Skipping Labeling Moving Boxes
When you are trying to get your entire house packed it can feel quite chaotic. You are usually going through the house to throw out, donate, give away and pack what you want to take. This means that there are piles that are all over and you want to make sure that you know what is going where. When you get to your new house you want to be able to find what you need. That is why you need to label all the boxes that you are packing. It will help with packing, unloading and of course unpacking.
Not Planning Ahead
There are some aspects of moving that just cannot wait till the last minute to take care of. One of the main mistakes that people make is not making arrangements with a moving company in advance. The moving company can be busy and if you are not on the list you may end up behind schedule. You should make sure that you schedule well in advance so that you get the time and date that you want. Moving long distance is something that needs to be planned out ahead of time. You also want to make sure that you call ahead for your utilities.
