HOUSE MOVING PLAN AND PREPARATION TIPS
Everyone is busy with life and family and preparing for a house moving event might seem like a low priority time allocation task but you will find that no matter how many times you’ve moved before, there’s always something you wish you’d have done different.
The first thing to do if you are relocating soon is start planning from at least a weeks prior to the actual moving date. This will give you time to think about important issues that needs to be dealt with before the actual move. This will also save you from last minute rush to take care of issues, save you time and money and help relieve some of the moving related stress and frustrations as the removal day approach.
OUR MOVING AND RELOCATION TRUCK OPTIONS
1. VISIT THE HOUSE OR APARTMENT OF THE NEW MOVING LOCATION
When looking to move your household to a new location, it’s important that you take into account of all your family members’ needs and make sure that the new location will be able to accommodate them and help them settle in well after the relocation. Some of the things you might need to consider is the convenience and locations of shopping malls or supermarket, kids’ school, hospitals and the distance from your new home to your current working area.
2. MAKE YOUR MOVING SCHEDULE AND INFORM YOUR FAMILY
Moving has many steps especially if you have a lot of stuff to be taken care of. You need to make sure that everyone in your house is aware of the moving plans and what their roles will be to make the removal as efficient and smooth as possible. You should schedule your move for a date that is most convenient to you and your household occupants.
Make sure your current house leasing office knows in time about your moving date all is clear with them. If you have any regular deliveries like newspapers etc, make sure that they know the moving date and where your new house will be in case you need to redirect your orders.
3. SET A BUDGET, AND DECIDE ON THE MOVING COMPANY TO USE
There’s many large and small costs that come with a relocation. This costs can add up quick and if you do not anticipate them, they can really come as unwelcome surprise and add to the stress associated to moving.

4. PREPARE AND CLEAN THE NEW HOUSE BEFORE THE MOVING DATE
Prepare your new house before the moving date by cleaning it, putting up curtains and making sure that the water runs well in the kitchen, bathrooms and the toilets. The make sure you put up the bulbs too since your moving schedule might be in the evening and you might need the lights to arrange the house. Make sure that the door keys work and the locks on the doors and windows work properly as well.
If there’s any work needed to make the house livable, make sure it’s done probably and well ahead of the actual move in date. All this will save you a lot of headaches down the road and help you settle in at your new place quicker.
5. GIVE OUT AND SELL UNNECESSARY HOUSE HOLD ITEMS
Going through your current house and taking inventory of your items is a very important step that can save you both money and time. By listing your unwanted items online at free Kenyan selling platforms like Pigiame and Jiji and actually make some money to help you with the moving costs. You can also donate or recycle some of the old and unwanted household goods.
Your de-cluttering process will also help save you time and packaging materials, so make sure you aren’t carrying stuff you no longer use to your new house. All this will save you a lot of time and money by reducing your overall moving costs so don’t ignore this important step in your moving process.
6. START PACKING, AND CREATE AN INVENTORY LIST
Start packing the items you will need to use the very first day at you place and label them so that they are identified easily. This will help you the agony of having to go through each and every box in search of items. Your important first day item list must include toiletries, kitchen utensils, towels, trash bags and phone chargers.
It’s important to rebel all your moving boxes with what content is in them and what rooms they belong to so that your movers and packers know exactly where they will end up at your new house.
