Many of our clients especially those engaged in home purchasing in Aurora, Colorado have expressed plenty of excitement as well as anxiety as they make their move into their new home. It’s somewhat a bittersweet moment because they are saying goodbye to old memories and opening a blank chapter in which to record new memories.
The only downside that they dread is the actual moving process. Well, we thought it wise to share with you a few tips to make your moving process much easier.
1 Start with cleaning your new home
There is nothing as easy as cleaning an empty space. No furniture or equipment obstructing you, the ability to get to every corner and most of all the ability to do a thorough job. You are not likely to get such an opportune moment which also enables you spot any sections of the house that may need some repairs or refinishing. So, before you bring in your stuff into your new home, do some cleaning. It pays more dividend than waiting till the house is full to start thinking about cleaning.
2 Be very strategic when packing
One of the most stressful moments is arranging your furniture and other smaller things in your new home. The work of sifting through tens of boxes trying to figure out where different things were packed is never something to look forward to. The idea is to be strategic when packing. You need to have an idea of which part of the house every item being packed will go and ensure the boxes are clearly labelled and arranged in the order in which they will go into rooms. This makes your work much easier when arranging your new home.
3 Reduce the boxes
Boxes can be overwhelming. At times terrifying. You simply do not know where to start. Good news! Someone invented vacuum seal bags. These are a life saver especially for items like blankets, pillows and other clothing material. They will help you significantly reduce the quantity of boxes required for your move and even make unpacking much easier because you can see what’s inside them.
Be sure to try this out and your moving experience will be much more bearable.
