When moving from one location to another, it is necessary to transfer a large number of things with different sizes. We move these things from one box to another, from one bag to another, and they can easily get lost. Sometimes we can find them again, and sometimes they are lost forever. If you do not want that to happen to you, it is necessary to first determine what is really important to you and what isn’t. These things should be packed separately and marked separately (e.g. with a marker). Important things can be your documents (identity card, health card, passport, driver’s license, diplomas, documents about the apartment or home, loan agreements…), money (cash), jewelry, keys… You can put documents in a special folder, and the jewelry and money in boxes. Then you need to clearly tell the moving company that you want them to be transferred to you first and you do not want them to get lost somewhere.
Before you start moving and packing, inspect the place, remember all the things that you left behind, find the things that you hid, because if you do not, there is a possibility that they will stay there.
Do not forget to pack all the plants you own. If you have some animals, you need to take a good care of them, but also of all the things that are related to them.
Pack your diaries, cookbooks, address books, card holders, because you will definitely need them at the new location. Keep your important phone numbers and addresses in your wallet, so that if you forget an address, you can read it immediately. Remember to take old keys or return them to the owner, if you are a tenant. Do not leave copies of these keys behind: in a box, pots, under the mats, in the neighborhood…
Before you start moving, return all things that are not yours, as this prevents you from accidentally forgetting about them. These things can be borrowed; books from a library or from friends, movies, DVDs, CDs… If you move to another city or abroad, it will be a bit complicated to return them to the right owner.
Pack all those things that are fragile and put them in boxes, but make sure that they do not get damaged during the transferring. Do not forget to tell the agency that these things are important to you and that they are fragile.
Pack toys and children’s wardrobe into special boxes. Do not forget to pack kids and other photo albums! It would be a real shame not to take the things that matters to you and your child.
Now you realize that moving is not really an easy thing to do, which is why hiring a moving company will be the best thing to do.
