I Need To Move, Where Do I Start?Moving is hard. So hard that some people would rather get in a 3 round fist fight than deal with
moving. Though difficult, it doesn’t have to be so painful. To make your move easier, you need
to be organized and have a good plan.
To start, you need to do some research. Learn everything about where you’re moving to, how
this will affect your job, and how you will raise your family. Once you’re done with all the all the
necessary decisions, the next step is to decide whether to move everything yourself or to hire
a Woodbridge moving company. To answer this question, you have to have an internal debate
over cost versus time considering the distance of your move and the amount of things you have.
Choosing whether to get your own truck or hire Woodbridge movers isn’t an easy decision since
both choices have their upsides and their downsides. To help you choose how to proceed, you’ll
need estimates of both options and weigh in the costs of packing supplies. Find out early on
what you are taking with you and what you are leaving behind.
Once you’ve separated your belongings into “keep” and “donate” piles, the next step is to start
packing. For most people, packing begins easy and quickly becomes chaotic and frustrating.
You have to power through it though or hire professionals to do it for you.
If you’re “donate” pile gets too big, you’ll need to find other ways to get rid of it. Your options will
depend on how much time you have left till moving day. Here are a few things you can consider:
● Garage Sale
These always tend to draw out crowds and is a quick way to make a few extra cash especially if
you put up a “moving out” sign. If you have anything left over, just donate it straight to charity. It
helps to advertise a little bit with fliers or through Craigslist to get a bigger turnout.
● Straight to charity
Garage sales can be tiring and if you don’t feel like going through that, you can skip it altogether
and just donate straight to charity. Just be sure your things are still in good condition.
If you don’t mind paying extra monthly fees indefinitely, you can always put your extra
belongings in storage warehouses. This isn’t recommended though as most people have a
tendency to leave their things unattended in these warehouses for several months and even
years just racking up costs.
The last thing you want to do is pack up your unneeded furniture and items and move them to
your new home. Not only will you pay your Woodbridge movers extra to do this for you, these
items will likely just take up unnecessary space in your home making it feel less like a new start.
Once everything is packed and you’ve gotten rid of all your old things, you’ll be done with the
most difficult part of your move. Now all that remains is to clean up your new and old home and
let your Woodbridge moving company rent you their truck or send in the movers.
