Fridays with the Fiddle Fig: 4 Best Practices When Moving
My wife and I recently just moved to a new home. While sleeping on a blow up mattress in the living room and maneuvering through an obstacle course of boxes to make breakfast in the morning, I thought it would be a good time to share a few tips we've learned in the process.
Here are four main recommendations for whenever you make your next move to a new home:
1) Get movers
There are great companies that are actually affordable and it's worth the stress you will avoid by hiring them. You'll know your things are in safe hands and it will give you the time and mental space to take care of other important details of your move. If you want to hire a moving company in San Diego, reach out to us, we worked with a great company that we would highly recommend.
2) Do a little bit at a time
Don't set it up so that you're moving out of your old house and into the new one in one day. You'll always have more than you think you have once you get down to actually packing it up and moving so give yourself time to go through it all.
3) Don't take on too much
So many little details pop up that you'll need time to take care of. So save the remodels and extra projects for another time. Pay attention to your sanity levels and what you can reasonably accomplish on your own and find people to whom you can delegate the rest.
4) Have your new house ready for move in
Take care of any remodels, painting, cleaning etc. BEFORE moving in if you can. Don't wait till all of your things are piled into the house to try and do these things.
