Last time, I wrote about some of the mistakes to avoid when moving. It’s so important to be prepared when the big moving day arrives.
Tips to avoid mistakes when moving art 2:
• Labels and more labels – Make sure to label all boxes that are going to be moved. Use a permanent black marker and label each box of the items that are in it. Movers will still move your boxes without labels but when they arrive at your new destination, you won’t know not only where the boxes should go in each room to unpack, but you won’t know any of the items when unpacking.
• Markers – Consider using color markers and label boxes that go into your new rooms. Write “kitchen” with all of your kitchen items, write “bathroom” for all of your bath items. Use different colors for each particular room.
• Color cards – Use different color of cards and place them on top of each box labeling where they should go. That way, your movers will know where to place each box in the pertinent areas of your new home.
• Safety – Household goods and money can easily be replaced, members of your family cannot. Stay safe and in my next blog will cover in detail safety tips you need to know about when moving.
