If you’re planning on moving long-distance, have you thought carefully about how you will move everything?
Moving may seem as simple as boxing everything up and loading it into the truck, but there is a lot more to it than that. You’ll need specific packing materials for different belongings and how you pack them is important. You may even have to reconsider what you take with you.
Let’s have a look at a few examples of unexpected challenges when it comes to relocating your home:
Most people’s TVs are flat screens (generally big ones, too), which is great– except when you have to relocate them. The best recommendation is to package them in their original boxes. If you threw yours out (like most people), here are a few packing tips.
Option 1: Purchase a new flat-screen box from a local moving supply retailer. The price will vary, but it shouldn’t be over $100.
Option 2: Wrap it in blankets and place it carefully in a large moving box. Be sure to position it securely on the truck so it can’t be bumped in transit.
Fish make wonderful pets due to their low-maintenance. However, moving them requires careful planning and strategic steps to ensure your fish make it to your new home unharmed.
Take plants and other objects out of the tank and put them in zip-lock bags with some water from the aquarium to preserve the bacteria.
Load the fish into a holding container with some of the aquarium water.
Take the rest of the equipment and put it in a sealed container free of any chemicals.
Put the fish along with the drained aquarium in your car where it won’t get bumped and where there will be less sloshing.
Set everything up immediately at your new home.
If you have plants you want to bring with you, stick to the following guidelines.
Transplant your plants into plastic pots several weeks in advance. You don’t want to have fragile pottery or ceramic planters in your car when you hit bumps.
Be sure to transplant them ahead of time to reduce stress.
Keep temperatures in your car moderate while transporting your plants. Remember, plants are living and sudden temperature shocks can kill them.
Moving home is the third biggest cause of stress, right after death and divorce. Moving abroad is even harder. Here’s how one expat went through the pain and found the ultimate lifehack to save money.
The agony of moving for me began way before the actual move, and reached fever pitch right around the time I had to hire a removal company.
