Packing Up And Moving House
by：Heng Xing 2020-04-15
Moving house is a stressful time and a lot of hard work is put into it. The more people on hand to move boxes on the big day, the smoother it should run. However when it comes to families packing up, it is much simpler to have everybody be in charge of their own belongings. This may sound like a bad idea as you begin to pack your own stuff, but if someone has helped and you arrive knowing where nothing is it will be much more difficult. Having each member of the family pack away the items that are in their own bedroom will speed up the process. Try to label boxes with what items are in to make things easier once you have moved e.g. a box for clothes, one for ornaments, and one for essentials you will need straight away. Many people just dump anything and everything into various boxes and soon regret their decision of speedily packing. If things are labelled it make it much easier to just open up open up one box and have everything you need to last you until you can get properly sorted. Nobody wants to have to rummage around through ornaments and photo frames to find their hairbrush and favourite shoes! Rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom are much harder to pack for as they cannot really be done in advance as these are the essential rooms you have to use everyday. Pots and pans and toothbrushes and shampoo can only be packed at the last minute for many home makers. Having showers at relatives' houses and eating takeaways whilst sat on boxes are usual scenes in people's houses and something that you have to get used to for the first week until things start to settle down and come together. Once all of the boxes and belongings are packed up and moved over the stress begins again. Everyone wants to settle in straight away and redecorate but the kitchen and bathroom should always be prioritised. These rooms need to be completed right away so home makers can start living life normally again. Re-tiling the bathroom and having new kitchen units fitted are not the quickest of jobs so having them sorted as soon as possible is necessary. Prior to moving it would be a great investment of your time to possibly hire somebody in advance or make sure that there will be somebody available.
