With the very name of relocation and moving, many of us wish if there was a Ginny to take care of the whole daunting process and you could just move in a jiffy! But that is not possible! So, let us have some reality check and get as much organized as possible to have a safe and relaxing relocation to your new destination. So, here are some tips that will make the move go easy on you and if you happen to have a family and pets, then take proper care to make the transition as relaxing for them as possible.

Plan, Plan and Plan

Well this very much sums up your whole responsibility when you need to move your home. An early plan will see you get organized pretty soon and ready for the D-Day. Start at least two to three weeks earlier the move date as in that way you can have plenty of time in your hand to pack and then recheck the mistakes. Make a checklist of all the items. One easy way to do it is to go by the rooms. Make separate checklist for bedroom, living room, kitchen and toilets. In that way you can have a clear idea of the following:

  • The number of items to pack
  • The number of cartons and packing boxes to order
  • A rough estimation of the time need to complete the packing

You can even share the task among your family members. Engage your children in the process so that they would not feel left out and will also get a chance to adapt to the idea of moving easily. Remember, as hard is a relocation on you, it is much more severe on the kids and the pets. So, engaging them in the work will make them feel more in tune.
