What not to pack
Wait! Is there anything you shouldn’t pack on the go? Naturally, you have to pack everything, but you’d better leave some things from the furniture truck.
These can be tucked into the trunk of the car so they are close at hand when you arrive. When you think this will be quite late and everyone will be tired and hungry, the two things you shouldn’t pack for the truck are food and bedding.
Food and kitchenware
On moving day, you will need to get up early to pack your last minute items. You’ll have last-minute plates and cutlery, items in the fridge, and cereal for breakfast. All of these can go in the car, so you’ll have it on hand the next morning, the first morning of your new home. Until then, you won’t have time to open your package, so having food and containers on hand will be a blessing.
Bedding is something that can get lost in the middle of boxes if you don’t take it with you. Being late with tired children can be uncomfortable if they can’t get into bed. As soon as you get in, fold all the sheets and blankets lengthwise and roll them up like a booty. Add the pillow and tie a belt all over it. So it will be easy for you to open him up to lie down when he arrives.
You can also do this with your own bed. When it’s time to go to bed, it will be a blessing to have it on hand. You won’t have to pull these boxes and bags to search for your sheets or blankets.
Electronics or games
Children get bored easily on a long trip, so keeping your favorite electronic devices to play with will help make the trip much faster and more enjoyable for you. Have a set of clothing for young children on hand in case of an accident. Whether they’re sitting down and busy with their game, they don’t always know when to “go.”
Local and interstate carriers
If you are moving to another nearby home, this is a simple move. If your transportation specialist takes you somewhere within about 8 hours by car, or if you move to another state, it’s almost a paradigm shift! So not all movements are the same. Here are some things to consider when planning this relocation.
If the move is still to a house in the same neighborhood and you can still visit friends often, or if you have a PO Box when you get to work, you won’t need to change your address. Some mail senders may need to be notified if they need to send letters to your home address, which is a street and a number. Of course, if you don’t have a PO Box, you will still need to notify utilities, banks, and government departments of the address change.
Schools and children
What about the school for children? Local action? Okay, the kids will go to the same school and stay the same. When you move to another city, children will face a stressful time getting used to a new system and new friends. It is a difficult question.
If your move is reasonably local, you can move many small items to your new home a week before your main move. It is a good preparation for moving day when the truck will arrive with all your furniture.
A long distance move means putting all the valuable things that can fit in the car for a trip. The rest will have to go to the van.
Your pet moves
If they are not used to traveling by car long distances, it is a bit difficult to relocate their pets if it is a long move. It is a good idea to consult your vet about taking some tranquilizers and to make some arrangements with your evisceration company to manage pet transport. They can supply special pet transport boxes to transport them safely to their new home.
Time is always very important, but more so if the movement will be long distance. You may want to travel by plane. Your transporter truck will drive on the road. Get the professional movers and packers to leave stress.
If your arrival at the new home will be a day before the truck arrives, it is best to consider booking a local hotel for one night. The last thing you really want to do is unpack and make beds for everyone after a long day, especially if you have your things ready before the trip. Enjoy a relaxing sleep and morning
