You might feel a bit stressed as moving day verges ever closer. You’re rushing around but you need to relax. Take your time and by doing this, everything gets taken care of more efficiently. At Guardian, we’ve put together a list of tips so your head is in the game as the big day edges closer
List Things That Need Done On Moving Day
Get a notebook and write everything down that needs to be done. Tasks will be easier to delegate to friends, family or roommates if a list is in place. This will free up more time to get the important stuff done. Being efficient is great for moving day and minimises any other mishaps.
Talk With Utility Companies Before Moving
You’ll seamlessly be able to use the likes of your utilities, your electricity, internet and water if you set up these accounts as soon as possible. Days without internet access is annoying, having cold water or no water at all is even more of an inconvenience. With this dealt with you can get back to unpacking and enjoying your new space.
Manage Your New Address
It might not be exciting but it’s important to manage your new address. It’s important to have all your mail forward to your new address so you don’t miss anything. Do this as early as possible. Update your address at the bank, school, doctor’s surgery credit cards and other providers.
Pack The One Day Box
Ever tried to find something but can’t as the room is filled with 50 boxes? It’s not the best of situations. To avoid this nightmare, pack an all in box with all of the things you’ll need on the first day in your new home. It could be filled with pillows, hygiene products, laptops, tablets etc. An energy bar might be something else too. Use your imagination.
Clean Before The Move
When your new home is completely empty it’s the best time to give it a good clean. Without the place being blocked by the likes of furniture, it’s the best time to reach those hard spots where dirt and dust may lay. Remember to move trash or debris from those spots where your stuff will go. This means the place will be perfect when you move in.
Remember To Eat
Skipping meals on moving day isn’t advised. It’s important to have the right amount of energy on moving day. Eat at the right times, whether that’s grabbing a sandwich at a local store or eating that energy bar packed away. Eating a good breakfast and a hearty lunch is vital to give yourself the energy to get you through the day.
