Find out how to organize a quick change
After finally finding the house of your dreams, one of the hardest parts comes: organizing and packing everything you have for the move. To do this without stress, the ideal is to plan a month in advance.
But if you left it to the last minute, you don’t need to panic. If you know where to start and how to assemble this whole story will become faster and easier. That’s exactly what this post exists for: to help you in this process of rapid change.
Provide essential materials
You need to have several items on hand for this change to happen.
• Boxes of various sizes:
You can find them at local markets and supermarkets or ask the company to transport you. Choose medium-sized boxes, which are easier to transport and have a lower risk of tearing when accumulating objects.
• Bubble wrap and newspaper sheets:
They will be essential to protect fragile objects.
• Thick-tipped pen:
Use to identify boxes.
• Resistant adhesive tape:
Use to close the boxes.
Separate a suitcase or purse from essential items
Do you know the essentials you will need to use on your first day in the new house? Separate these items in a suitcase. For example clean clothes, sheets and pillowcases, personal hygiene items, basic kitchen utensils, bath and face towels.
Keeping these items separate helps you start living in the new house right away, without looking for the basic items among the many boxes.
Start with one environment at a time
It’s much easier to start with one room at a time. Thus, you control and make sure that everything is properly guarded. It’s also good to assume that the boxes will be sorted from each environment.
Start with the bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. These are the rooms that need to be tidied up first after a move, as you need to have them available as soon as you move into the new house.
Separate important documents and valuable objects
Passport, jewelry, medicines, more expensive decoration items. Don’t risk these items getting mixed up and getting lost in the middle of the change.
• Know where to start planning furniture for your kitchen
• To what extent is it allowed to change the condominium façade?
Time to organize the boxes
You need to facilitate the process of finding the packed items after the move. After sealing the boxes with tape, use a marker pen to write what is inside the boxes, such as: clothes, kitchen items, dinner items, among others.
You can also use the pen, if you have models in other colors, to warn those who are going to carry about what may or may not be fragile and require greater care. For example: write in red to highlight that there are glass or porcelain items.
Speaking of fragile items: wrap them in bubble wrap to prevent breakage. Use newspapers as glass containers and place blankets inside possible glass-door furniture, such as cabinets and cabinets.
Distributing the weights
Start placing heavier items at the base of the box, such as books and objects that won’t break. Afterward, go filling the box with lighter objects.
And the drawers?
If the current closet is part of the move, you don’t even need to undo the drawers. Remove them from cabinets and protect them with plastic or blankets, depending on their contents, and seal them with adhesive tape. This saves tremendous time in organizing the move.
Someone needs to take this
If you have not yet hired a company to transport your move, use more emergency services such as express moving. Or friends and family who can help with this process with large cars.
Of course, friends don’t just have to come by transport. The more divided the work and effort of change, the less weight for everyone involved.
