The most traumatic aspects of the relocation are not the thought that we are moving but the idea that there will be plentiful chores to fulfill before the D-Day! You could be moving from Visakhapatnam to Hyderabad with the experienced packers and movers in Visakhapatnam but if you are following the wrong route to conduct the move, and not abiding by the ideal techniques for the same, you can never attain a successful move.
We often think about what went wrong with our house move, when we ensured everything is set right, but we fail to acknowledge the loopholes we left unattended along the way. Maybe, we started planning for the move much later, maybe we did not discuss our moving apprehensions and requisites with the moving team well enough, maybe we took things casually and our callous behavior towards packing and moving resulted in this failed moving experience – there can be thousands of reasons that we can list out that halted our move to not come out just how we thought. But in no way, does that mean our future relocations would not go the right way. There do happen mistakes, and there do come emergencies, but it is how we learn from them and traverse our upcoming path for ourselves.
Okay, so enough of this serious discussion. Let’s just lighten the entire relocation incidence by simply highlighting the key tips that will shape up your move in the most efficient way! Let’s check out!
• Follow the systematic way of relocation – Relocation becomes better and simpler the minute you choose to follow a route. If you have a well-planned route throughout the moving episode, things begin simplifying. But at the same time, one has to ensure that they are closing their to-do tasks timely and not procrastinating tasks for the next day. Otherwise, how can one manage the endless list of chores on the tasklist ahead of the move, right? So, just forget everything and follow a process that you will follow so you know how you are going with your move and at what pace are you progressing with the plan. Start with the de-cluttering task because it is the most important task and time-consuming at the same time!
• Keeping up with the time of the tasks – Moves are all about synchronizing all the to-do tasks in a way that everything falls into place. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of relocating? Isn’t it the tasks you are about to close? Is it not about the multitude of packing you have to do in your ‘packing goods’ errand? Well, definitely! But then what is the correct way out of this hassle? It is time management. If you do not set your hours aside for the packing tasks, how would you manage the packing chores from your entire household? You may have hired the professionals for the task, but wouldn’t there be some basic cleaning, dusting, sorting, de-cluttering, and packing tasks for you to pull off right in the beginning? So, just fulfill all of these tasks timely and prepare a clean and sorted household before the movers reach your place for the packing task!
• Seek complete assurance of packing – When we recruit professional movers, the first thing our mind thinks is that we are now sorted. But that is not how it is. The fact is something else. The movers may take away the responsibility of packing from us but we need to inquire the movers about the kind of packing and moving assurance that they will be able to offer us. Only when we are sure of their diligence, support, expertise, and knowledge, we can trust them with our goods. So, do not think that your role as a customer gets over the minute you find yourself a suitable mover. Rather, it only begins when you hire yourself a mover. You have to first, review the company’s background, go through the terms and conditions of the company, review the customer testimonials, etc. so you can finalize your tentative decision of hiring the company.
• Sorting the storage needs is important – With the packing of goods, customers do need to get the best suitable storage facility for the upkeep of their belongings. This is one reason why all the leading moving companies have both packing and storage services as part of their core services. But yes, since storage rates are quite high, one should be very clear about their decision of getting storage assistance from the company they have chosen. It is not that the company you hired for your packing requisites has to be the same to be booked for your storage requirements. That is not the case, you can pick up some other storage dedicated company for the purpose but you must review the terms and conditions, the pricing structure, etc. set for the same by the company before you come up with your decision.
• Ensuring packing is done perfectly – If you discuss your packing requirements for your invaluable belongings with the moving professionals, you can conduct the packing task pretty smoothly. The moving team would ultimately be taking care of the packing task, so you need not worry about the safety and security of your belongings but yes, the kind of packing and protection you want, the kind of handling you expect from the movers, the degree of protection you want for your belongings must all be discussed with the crew beforehand. Invest in quality packing supplies and purchase full-coverage moving insurance for the goods you are moving. You never know what the transit has in store for you, so why take risks? Just ensure your precious belongings get the needful protection to survive the transit without any damage or even scratch!
