Tips in Shifting Your Home

On 12 July, 2013 by Himanshu

Shifting a home is a daunting task. People who have done it will definitely back my saying that it is not an easy task. The whole task is emotionally and physically draining.

People these days have become smart and do hire movers but yet there has to be planning done.

Home Shifting

Here are tips in shifting your home:

Make a list: you must prepare checklist. You need to write down list of things that need to be packed, and once packed put check on it. Also you need to write down things you have to do such as pay bills such as of newspaper vendor, list of goodbyes, informing electric, telephone departments about the no usage of electricity etc. from day of shifting etc. listing such task will give you confidence whether you have done it or not. You will not miss out on anything.

House Shifting

Plan the move in advance: Gradual change is better than huff and puff. Give your family time for emotional adjustment to moving to the new home. Never leave things at last minute. Planning the timing of movers coming, the boxes that you want for immediate use, planning the time of moving in such a way that shifting becomes easy and your truck is not in middle of traffic.

Packing your belongings must be done with care and with proper labeling as what box contains what. Some people shift their belongings gradually, before shifting to new house. This is also a good idea. Involve all people in packing their things such that they know what thing is where and how they have packed. Assist your kid in case they are younger.

Home Packing Labelling

Ensure fragile items are well packed.

Say your goodbyes to neighbors. Children are sad as they will be leaving their friends but their new room and new home must excite them. talk to them in case they are too sad before shifting and solve all their queries regarding new home, new surroundings, new people and how to make new friends.

Home Arrangement IdeasThe movers you hire must be reliable and a reputed company. Ask your friends who have shifted and used their service for their views.

Ensure your kitchen and bedrooms are well settled before actually shifting. This will help you immensely till time you get completely settled.

Electricity, pipe gas etc. must be working in new home and must be shut off in old home.

Be positive and don’t over stress and rather enjoy the shifting procedure.

  • Great tips Himanshu. Heard of ezmove.in recently. They seem to be doing an interesting thing in home relocation or shifting. Choosing a packer and mover and then getting them to serve you well is hard task afterall and with ezmove it seems to have become much easier.
