Transport Tips for an easy move

Transport Tips for an easy move

It is a lot of work to organize a move, and even more to do it without problems. Sometimes, when you are looking for ways to make a move efficiently, it can be disconcerting how to start and what are the most important things you should know when you move. From Transportista Barcelona we provide you with a list with a basic guide and moving tips that will help you.

  • Start as soon as you can. The more time you have to prepare before you start moving, the better.
  • Get rid of what you do not need. There are many places online to list, sell or give away things that you do not want to keep. You can also use these places to stock up on packaging materials such as boxes.
  • Start packing room by room. When you fill a box, place a label or write in it the room to which it belongs. It facilitates the organization and saves a lot of time when unpacking.
  • Distribute the weight in the most uniform way possible between the boxes. Carrying too much a box can cause it to break and also not be very healthy for your back. Try to spread the weight between the boxes as evenly as possible.
  • Make a “open first” box. It may seem like an extra effort, but it’s worth it. Place in it some basic things: plates, knives and other cutlery, toilet paper, soap, towels, sheets, medicines, etc. Once you are in your new home, you may be too tired to start unpacking the entire set of boxes and bags in search of something you may need.
  • Consider using a moving company. You may be tempted to make the move on your own, but sometimes when you add up the cost of buying supplies to pack, hiring people to load and unload, rent a truck, pay for gas, etc., it may turn out to be more than it would have been. If you had hired a moving company.
  • Plan the time and get help loading the truck. You must have everything ready for when the truck is ready to load the day of the move. Also try to find out how much time it will take to load the truck, if you have stairs or an elevator to move, it may take longer than usual. This means that if you can, you should consider using extra help, the best way to make a move is with the help of a professional moving company.
  • And do not forget, last but not least, enjoy it! Moving is not always easy, but it is definitely a change and an opportunity for a new beginning. So take it as an adventure and start a new chapter in your life!
