You know what? Most people hate moving. But you do not hear anything new, are you? The idea is that this entire activity is quite daunting. It can be overwhelming as well, and you always feel rushed, as if the pressure is not enough already.
Because of that entire stress, you may forget certain things during the move. However, they are quite essential and may slow your whole process down, not to mention the headaches that they can cause. That is why we from H2H Movers want to help you by referring them to you right now. Let’s start!
Your Last Dry Cleaning Batch
Dropping off your dirty clothes at your local dry cleaners may be quite the regular activity. So much so that some people even forget they do it. If it is a routine for you, make sure not to forget your clothes there.
Some people have something of a routine. They drop off their clothes on Monday and pick them up on Friday. However, when their move is scheduled on Friday, they often forget they have dry cleaning to pick up. Pay attention to that mistake!
Booking The Right Moving Company
In the rush of planning the process, you may get so tangled up in tasks that you forget to schedule the movers. That is especially problematic if you are delegating specific responsibilities to your kids, spouse, roommates, or even friends.
If you are the master planner, always make sure to double-check with everyone. It is better to appear a bit touchy on the subject, rather than realizing that your movers are not coming because you have not booked them in the first place.
This advice applies to other planned activities as well, but we have noticed it is most problematic when we are talking about time-sensitive tasks.
Having An Overnight Bag
If you are not familiar with the concept of an overnight bag, you are missing a lot. The idea is simple – you need a bag of essential items, which you will be available to you at all times. This includes necessary documents that need to be with you, but also toiletries, an outfit for the next day, maybe even bedsheets and the like.
With these things packed separately from the others, you will know that there will not be a need to dig through tons of stuff to find what you need the most right after you move to your new home.
Bonus Advice: Don’t Forget Your Documents
Pieces of paper are easy to misplace. That is because you see them, think they are essential, but then set them aside for later. The problem comes when your brain believes that it has dealt with that document, and now it has to move to more important matters. So you forget about it. But this isn’t something to set and forget! So when you spot something important, make sure you put it in its respective place, like a folder with documents or something like that.
