How to Make Your DIY Relocation Easier
Moving from one place to another is not at all an easy process. There are a lot of factors to take into consideration for your move from your present location to your next. This is why most people hire packers and movers for their move. However, if you don’t want to spend any money on packers and movers, this article is for you. So, here is how you can make your house relocation from one place to the next easier.
Find free materials for your move
The first step of house relocation is to arrange all the materials required for your house relocation. You may consider buying these materials, but consider this; all these items will be of no use to you once your relocation process is complete. This is why we recommend that you borrow these items from your friends, family, or neighbours. This will save you a substantial amount of money and make your overall move just a little bit easier. These materials include:
- Cardboard boxes
- Packing tape (or normal tape if you don’t have this option available)
- Bubble wraps
- A pair of scissors (Any scissors will work just fine)
- Plastic wraps
- Packing labels (Optional)
- Moving blankets (Optional)
- Furniture covers (Optional)
- Tool Set
Pack your electronics in the same boxes they arrive
While you should consider borrowing most of your other supplies, reuse the same boxes to pack the electronics in which they arrived. This should not be hard as most of the electronics nowadays come in sturdy cardboard boxes. In case you don’t have these boxes, we recommend going to your local electronic stores and asking if they have something that fits your electronics. If the boxes are bigger than the size of your electronics, we recommend filling up the empty space with newspaper. This will allow the electronics to stay in their place during the transit period.
Sell or donate what you don’t need at your new house
Do you have old furniture that you want to get rid of? What about the old clothes that you don’t wear anymore? There are a lot of things that you don’t need when you are planning to start a new life in your new home. This is why we recommend that you get rid of these things by either donating or selling them. This will help you start your life in your new home free of unnecessary clutter.
Compare the charges of the moving companies you have finalized
You must have already done a fair bit of research online and found at least a few relocation companies for your move. This is where you should evaluate your options. A smart consumer is a patient one. Don’t finalize the first company that you interview. We recommend interviewing all the shortlisted companies one after the other. Inquire about their rates and settle on a company that has the cheapest rates and the best track record.
Home relocation is a physically demanding task. You are probably going to sweat a lot during your move. This means you will have to pack multiple water bottles (or a really big bottle) before you get involved in this process. If you are packing and moving on a summer day we recommend that you pack a few bottles of glucose solution with you.
Click photos of your belongings
This is something a lot of people forget to do while home relocating. We highly recommend that you take a photo of all your belongings before prepping them for house relocation Mumbai to Noida. This will allow you to take a visual inventory of your stuff and check if any of your stuff is damaged or missing.
Assign colours to your moving boxes
This step is something that will make your unpacking process a lot easier. Before packing each box, be sure to assign them colours based on which rooms they belong to. This will allow you to set up each box in the rooms they belong to before unpacking. Keeping everything packed near the place where it should be kept after unpacking will make the entire process of unpacking a lot more manageable. We also recommend putting on some groovy music before you unpack.
Pack your small fragile items using foam pouches
Pack your fragile plates, china, glassware, etc. using foam pouches. This will save you both time and effort as using foam pouches to hold everything is just as safe as packing everything with plastic and foam.
Use small boxes to pack heavy objects
Using small boxes to pack heavy items will make them easy to carry. You don’t want your heavy object to move from one end to another inside the box. This will make it harder to carry them. Also, you should not bundle up heavy objects like books together as it will increase the weight of the entire box. There is also a possibility of bigger boxes breaking open due to the weight of these heavy objects.
Use pillows and blankets to pack all your fragile items
You should pack fragile items in your possession using bubble wraps. Bubble wraps are generally a good way to secure your items from any jerks and shocks. To further prevent damage to your items during and after the transit period, we recommend stuffing them with pillows and cushions.
Check and recheck your house for items you might have left behind
It is easy to leave things behind when packing and moving. We recommend that you check and recheck all of your bedroom closets, drawers, kitchen cabinets, and your fridge before you leave.
