Thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic, many homeowners and tenants will find themselves postponing their move to a new home.

When the state removes its shelter in place orders, you may find yourself forced to relocate in a hurry to save yourself money and keep a safe roof over the heads of your loved ones.

Moving to a new property when you’re in a rush can feel frantic and cause you to get stressed out, but by being prepared, you can create a calm atmosphere.

If you’re facing a speedy move to your new home, then here are some tips from the removal experts at Low Country Moving.

Gather Together All The Packing Materials You Need Before You Start

When you’re packing your furniture and precious possessions, you need to make sure that you have the boxes, tape, scissors, and other equipment you need. If you keep stopping to go and fetch something else, then the process will take much longer, and you might become disorganized and forget something. If you’re unsure of what you need to have at hand, or you just don’t have any materials, then we can help. We offer a wide variety of packing materials, and our experts can guide you through packing everything so that your items reach their new home safely.

Pack Strategically

Packing up your home can seem like a daunting task, but if you go through the process logically, then it doesn’t have to be that way. Pack items that you don’t often use first, always making sure that the most cumbersome items are on the bottom and the lightest on the top. Then pack essential items and dismantle furniture right before you move to your new property. If you find the task too challenging, then we offer a full moving service that includes packing, so you can sit back and let our dedicated team do all the hard work.

Distract Your Pets And Kids

Packing and organizing your move requires absolute concentration, which can be hard to achieve when you have kids and pets hanging around and demanding attention. Pets can be distracted with a toy, or you could ask someone who lives with you to play with them while you pack. Distracting children during a move to a new house can be hard, so consider involving them in the process by asking them to help. For example, you could get them to pack their toys, or choose boxes for you.

Communicate With Everyone Involved In The Relocation

Every step of your home relocation needs to be smooth and faultless, so make sure that you continuously communicate with everyone involved. From your landlord or new buyer, through to your new landlord or home seller, you need to make sure everyone in the chain knows when you’re planning on moving. Any miscommunications could result in a severe delay, so be clear about what you need and be vigilant to ensure that you get answers from everyone.

Clean As You Go

When you’re moving out of a property, you need to make sure that you leave it in an acceptable state. It might be tempting to leave the cleaning until the end, but you might find that you’re too busy to do a good job later in the relocation process. As such, you should try to clean as you go. Once you’ve moved a piece of furniture, clean the area where it was so that it’s ready for its new occupier. By cleaning throughout the process, you’ll save yourself time at the end of the process and make your move feel less rushed and stressful.

Hire An Experienced Moving Company

Moving to a new home requires organization and planning at the best of times, but when you’re in a hurry, you need to work with trusted professionals. At Low Country Moving, our teams are all highly experienced in helping home and business owners to move to new premises. As such, they’ll be able to help you to get into your new home with a minimum of fuss and hassle.
