Packing Up Your Home – The Smart Way
In modern times, career hoping is normal. It’s what people often do when they are not really sure of what they want to do in life, or when they are not completely satisfied with their present career. Unfortunately, career hoping also involves moving; different homes, different towns. This alone can be a deal breaker for most.
After all, if not done efficiently, moving homes can be a huge mess. Lost possessions, broken possessions, the cost of moving, leaving behind the familiar and moving into the unknown; these can all cause a major headache. Fortunately, all of these and more can be avoided if you know how to pack up your home smartly and efficiently. Read ahead to find out how.
Decide if you want to DIY, or hire the professionals.
Really, this decision alone can save you a lot of trouble. Decide if you want to move and pack by yourself (this includes getting your friends and neighbors to help, by the way) or if you want to get the help of professional house movers in Dubai. For this, you’ll need to consider the size or you home, the number of things you possess, the distance to your new place, the amount of definite help you are going to have (from your friends and family) and of course, your budget for moving.
Be organized and prepare beforehand.
In truth, the secret to chaos-less moving depends solely on this. If you plan on having the help of movers and packers in Abu Dhabi, then notify them well in advance. This not only reduces the last minute confusion; it also will help you reduce the cost. If you plan going the DIY way, then be well prepared with the necessary things. Plenty of boxes (and spare for those last minute things), permanent markers and even bubble wrap (for all those fragile things you have) are all things you should definitely have in hand well before you start packing.
Make use of the space; make use of the pen.
Not knowing what you have in each box can be a nightmare. True, you can go at it with a box cutter (very handy when moving, by the way!), but you’ll only end up getting frustrated. Instead, try to pack likely things and things of the same room together. Mark each box with the room it’s supposed to be in, and if possible, a list of things it has inside it. if you have to pack large spaces (like the fridge or your cupboard) then try to fill them up with light weight things. Just remember not to over fill it, as this will make it hard to transport it.
Remember, not everything you own is necessary in your new home. Use this moving as the opportunity to purge yourself with all those unwanted things. Throw, give away or sell them; trust us when we say that this helps…!
