6 clever tricks to make your move simpler

by Ram Sewak Transportation
You think moving is easy? Well, it’s not but it can be made if you follow the right planning along with the trusted Agarwal packers. The only way to navigate that without losing your mind is to use the simple moving hacks that I am going to mention in this article today. The hacks will lead you to the correct moving path by reducing the amount of work upfront and on the unpacking side too.

1. Get rid of everything before packing and moving stuff- It’s pretty sure that not everything but the more unused and unessential items you will eliminate from adding to your move, the less stuff you will have to pack up, unload, and rearrange.

Don’t be ruthless with your stuff, you can just donate the ones that you don’t use anymore and discard the ones that are not in good condition. There is no point in carrying extra stuff unnecessarily, however; it will only increase the volume of goods along with the charges of transferring them from one place to another.

2. Sort the things category-wise- Do not throw the goods out without sorting them into categories. Instead of spending the whole day cleaning out your bedroom, spend a day purging through every article that you own. Inspect each closet, dirty clothes, and laundry room until you have got all your clothes at a certain place. Do the same thing with all the other articles such as books, shoes, essential documents, etc.
 
3. Make yourself financially strong- An essential key to make your move an easy affair is to make yourself financially stable. If you are planning to relocate to a longer distance then keeping yourself financially is a must and for that, you have to save a lot. Start saving and reducing your expenses at least 6 weeks before your actual moving day. Lower down your shopping expenses, stop eating at fancy restaurants, don’t overspend on the things that you might be doing for your pleasure and fun. This way, you will have enough funds to make your relocation experience a successful one.
 
4. Research a moving professional- Though researching is never fun, it takes a lot of time and effort to be utilized by a person doing it. Keeping this in mind, many people often skip this crucial step and land up in a moving scam by opting for a rogue moving company. Therefore, seek references from your family members, friends, and people who have some kind of moving experience. Another place to perform your research is Google. Once you click and tap on the best moving companies located near you, you will get a long list of movers promising to offer the reliable and safest packing and moving services.

But this is when you have to be smart, the listed companies are definitely movers but not all of them are genuine. Many of them are fake too, some of them are even working with a false name. They have just a certain number of people who have gathered to lure the customers by offering extremely low rated moving costs and absolutely unprofessional services.

Nevertheless, all you have to do is, perform a deep search before finalizing your movers and packers.

To make sure that you have made a correct choice, follow the points listed below:

Shortlist at least 3 companies with a clean background. Clean means the ones that don’t have any complaints made by the customers against them.

Read the reviews and check ratings along with the comments and feedback posted on the company’s social media platforms and official website too.

To know more, it is better to go through the several review portals available online. These are the portals that have a long list of negative and positive feedbacks posted by the people who have moved in the past years.

Get the price quotations from all the three companies by mentioning the exact volume of your goods. This way you will get the most accurate costs for your move.

Now, when you have got the quotes, compare them, and see which one perfectly fits in your framed budget.

Seeking the price quotes is not enough, you have to make sure whether the company is physically present or not, and for that, you have to visit their offices, talk to the managers and other staff members to make sure they have the relevant knowledge to make your move a successful experience.

Examine the services along with the packing material and techniques used by them according to the nature of goods that you wish to shift.

Finalize the one mover which you think is suitable in all terms and book a slot by informing your moving date them in advance.

Note: to get the moving slot of your choice it is advisable to intimate the movers about your preferred moving day and date in advance.

5. Finish off the minor tasks- Moving is not only associated with sorting and hiring companies, it is also about completing the minor tasks that can affect your move very badly. These minor tasks commonly include:

Paying off the utility bills and informing about the change in your service providers.

Pay off the outstanding bills and payments, if any.

Inform about the change to your employer, if it is your personal move.

Don’t forget to tell them about your moving dates to your relatives as well.

Get the address changes at all the relevant areas such as banks.

If you have kids, then get their school-related formalities settled in advance. Get the transfer certificates and other stuff as soon as you have made up your mind to relocate.

6. Prepare an essential bag- Pack a separate bag by keeping all the essential items that you may need during the move because it is not possible to unpack the boxes in the middle of the way or as soon as you have reached your new home. This, add your charger, toiletries, some eating stuff, medicines, prescriptions, towels, and other things that you will be constantly used in a day.

Don’t panic just follow the 6 simple points mentioned above and the rest Agarwal packers and movers will handle.

Happy Moving!
