Big congratulations to you on your new home in the new city of Cochin. But when are you moving out of Coimbatore? Is the move taking place in a month? Or before that? Well, regardless of when you are moving out, you should immediately find an ideal team of packers and movers in Coimbatore and book them right away so you can move out of your city without any struggles and disappointments.
Above that, we have compiled together a list of things that you must do before your move, which you can follow to make your home shifting journey not just better but smooth and successful.
1. Visit newly bought home
If you have already visited your new apartment before the final move-in, that’s great but if you have not, then do it. And if you have yet not found or searched for an ideal dwelling for you and your family, do that first. Keep in mind the kind of home you want to move in and the features and things you want in it.
2. Revisiting move decision
At one point, you might also feel like revisiting your moving decision. This is a natural phenomenon because no matter how well prepared we are, there is a slight fear and dilemma in our hearts and minds regarding our moving decision. We end up being hesitant about a lot of things and think if we are doing it right or should we just hold everything.
3. Saving date and budget
Before you start finding that ideal moving professionals team for your relocation project, decide a suitable moving date that works ideally not just for you but for your family members too. Once you finalize the date, you should prepare your finances for the journey. You will need to pay for various extra costs, apart from the moving cost and therefore, some budget planning before the move would help.
4. Finalizing quality movers
The reason why one should not think twice about hiring moving professionals and straightaway appoint them for the move are simple – they make the job easier and everything happens on time, without any struggle. All you need to make sure are the experts you choose hail from a reputed moving company, and the services you opt from them suit your moving requirements at their best.
5. Paring down possessions
The moving professionals would give you a date when they will come over to perform the packing task at your place. Make sure you have executed the sorting and de-cluttering tasks before that so they can pack your stuff in a clean and de-cluttered space. Give away, sell, donate or discard all the useless items so your moving load is in control and your budget is balanced. 6. Securing cables and cords
There are a few things in our household – like the appliances and electronic items in particular, that are a struggle to pack for the move – they come with extra cords and cables in different colours serving distinct purposes and one has to securely pack them for the move. Being naïve, you may not know the appropriate ways of doing it, so seeking professionals’ aid at this point can be a good option.
7. Keeping snaps of valuables
At times, when there is a mishap during the course of the journey and we end up damaging or losing our valuables, we have nowhere to go or ask about the damage recovery. But, if we take note of every moving item and its estimated cost in the moving inventory and keep their exact pictures pasted alongside, we can request our moving company to provide us with the insurance against the damaged items by showing them that list.
8. Prioritizing efficient packing
Superior packing quality is the foremost thing to take care of when moving. Invest in good quality packing supplies, and give ample time to the packing tasks. Every item in our household requires different packing assistance, which we may or may not be well-versed with. So, it is better to let the moving experts handle the packing task. Just make sure to oversee if everything is in place.
9. Protecting high-value stuff
All the expensive, exquisite items in our household – like antiques, artifacts, jewelry, décor items, collectibles, etc. should be packed properly for the move. These delicate articles require extra care and must be wrapped in soft cloth, and topped with bubble wraps and quality packing paper so there is minimal damage. Professional movers offer special, customized packing services to safeguard expensive goods. Opt for that to ensure optimum safety for your extraordinary items.
10. Planning the moving route
You should plan ahead how you want to prepare for the route. If you are driving or have booked a car that will drive you to the destination, you should decide the course of your journey that will have few deviations and less traffic. If you are going by flight, you should do the bookings in advance, and have the air tickets ready while leaving so you do not encounter any problem during the journey.
11. Being ready for moving day
Moving day is all about being ready on time and maintaining a stress-free mind. It is also about supervising the final things – like the moving boxes when they are loaded into the vehicle, checking the doors, windows, and their locks, keeping the food basket and document folder in vision so they are not left back home, and taking a final tour of the house before handing over the keys to the landlord.
12. A thorough home-cleaning
This should be done soon after you have landed up in your new home. So, do not jump into unpacking the boxes and re-arranging goods, you will have to give your new home a good clean-up before you start putting out things.
