How Not To Fool Yourself on Move-in Day

Don’t get caught in any moving mishaps this April Fool’s Day! Save yourself the stress and follow these simple rules.

Stick To a Schedule

A classic mistake is thinking you can wing it. Many don’t use a schedule and end up scrambling on moving day. Stick to a schedule to get everything done on time in an organized fashion. If you are unsure where to start, use this sample comprehensive schedule from moving.com to get everything done on your list.

Set Aside an Essentials Pack

You could be living out of boxes for the first couple of weeks while adjusting to your new place. When you’re in that transition period, having an essentials bag will help make your first few days there easier. Include any toiletries you will need for two weeks and clothes for different occasions; work, after-work drinks, the gym, and any other occasion you will need during that time frame. Start with this list from Trulia to get yourself covered.

Do the Final Walk-Through

When you think everything is out of the house, take a final walk through the house. Check the places that are often forgotten, like the basement, attic, and crawl space. There are many spaces boxes can hide, so check behind every door and inside every closet. You don’t want to leave anything behind.

Keep Yourself Safe

The quickest way to throw yourself off schedule is to hurt yourself. Moving heavy appliances can cause a plethora of unwanted injuries if you don’t know how to move them safely. Let the professionals take care of your bigger objects if you can, and if you must move them yourself, take our suggestions to be prepared. To remain safe, also keep an eye out for dangerous weather. My Moving Reviews offers great tips for moving in different dangerous weather conditions.
