Nevertheless the reason, the time for moving out always comes. It doesn't matter if the reason is your career or you will just have a new family member. Moving away from your present location is always difficult. It is difficult not only mentally - having to leave all the old memories, the neighbors and the things you had been gone through in that house, but it is difficult also because you must spend both time and money for the removal itself.
As I mentioned, no matter how exactly you will do it, you will have to spend some money for that. But either you have to chose a removal company to pick your stuff or you demand to do it all by yourself because you think it is fun or something, there is one thing you must calculate carefully before you begin - your time. Here I will make clear some time-saving tricks for your removal process.
First, plan all of the steps - one by one. That will help you taking the right decisions afterwards. Try to write down a scheme of the whole process. Then, have a closer look in each of them, thinking what will you need for it and how could you supply it best. Believe me- that works.
If you are going to hire a company for that, it is better for you to make a reservation at least a couple of weeks earlier or in the moment you know the exact date of moving out. By doing that, you save not only some of your time, but there is even a chance to get a better price.
If you plan to move all by yourself, the time-saving plan is always easier to be made up, as it is all up to you and your skills, will and power. One of the best sides here - you know the size of your luggage pretty well and you know how many boxes, cases or packages you will need for packing all your stuff in.
One of the best saving-time advices I could give you is to start packing some time before the move. You can begin with the things that are not of everyday need. Things like the pancake pan, the old dusty CDs, the books already read, and all the other similar stuff that you don't need in your day.
To save time from the packing, you could also make a yard sale, giving away all the old things that you won't need in the new place, such as your lawn saw, or a thing that you connect with that particular place, etc. That will save you not only some time packing, but also more space in the trunk, because the full boxes will be less. This always helps moving out.
Have in mind what car do you have and what is the best way to use it as a removal van. If the space in it is still insufficient, now it is the right moment to call a friend to give you a hand for that. Usually two bigger cars can substitute any company's removal truck. Well, unless you own a beautiful piano or something bigger, that you cannot store in your car.
Each of these steps I'm sure will help you escape the panic when the moment comes. And there won't be huge piles of boxes, making you feel confused of what is important to take first or last, and what to load/unload first.
It will be good if you also calculate the distance between your old and new residence. Then, depending on that you could easily come to solution if it will be cheaper to do it by yourself or to hire a company to do it for you.
