Moving: What to Pack and What to Leave Behind
There are 2 kinds of movers: the organizers
and the post-poners. No matter which one you consider yourself to be, do not make the mistakes that both have a
tendency not to get , that is to opt for packing everything; rather than,
figure out what can remain and what can go :
- Important Papers: imperative
private documents such as wills, deeds, bonds, records, and so on must be held
with you throughout the move.
- Valuable Items: precious jewelry,
family heirlooms, photographs and cash must also be kept with you rather than
loaded into the moving truck.
- Necessities: It is likely you will
come in a day prior or after your moving
company arrives, and you do not want to be trapped without a change of shirts,
medicine, beauty products as well as toilet paper. You should pack a bag of
overnight essentials and keep it with you until you are all settled settled.
- Appliances: They might be
obsolete, and problem to bring or they
might be a portion of your sales contract. Either way, you should leave
appliances behind. Particularly if, your new home previously has a dishwashing
machine, fridge and dryer and washer, you are not going to get so much of use
since you will be putting your old one in your garage.
- Household accessories: This
consists of every single thing that is necessary but easily replaceable such as
wardrobe hangers, window curtains, cleaning products and also welcome mats. You
can discover all these products on the internet or at department shops in your
- Extra keys: you should leave any
extra keys you own, ideally with labels, for the new homeowners. Although they
will most likely change the front door locks, they will value any duplicates
you own for the gate, garage, shed, bathroom doors or windows
- Security alarm and garage door
codes: gather any access codes you own and you should leave them in a file for
the new residents.
- Service contracts: collect any
contact information you have for lawn treatment, pool servicing and repair
professionals and leave it as suggestions for the new homeowner.
Sell or Trash
- Furniture: Needless to say you
will need to take some belongings with you, only remember you do not have to
take them all. When your mattress is more than ten years old or your couch has
seen greater days, present them to a nearby shelter prior to trashing them. Or,
in case the furniture is in still in great condition, give consideration to
selling it, so you do not have to move it. Once you move to your new location,
you can use that money to purchase furniture that fits conveniently in your new
- Junk: Everyone has it. When you
are sorting, identify items you have not
used in a very long time. You can take this chance to organize your life, and
this includes getting rid of clothing, knick-knacks and holiday adornments you
never use. Except if it has emotional value, you will most likely forget about
it soon anyhow.
- Hazardous Materials and the like:
certain items should not be moved simply because it can be hazardous to do so.
That list consists of (but is not limited to) paints, paint thinners and
fireworks , maintenance chemicals, oxygen bottles, lighter fluid, nail polish
remover, and gasoline.
