Four Weeks Prior to Move

What is a sure-fire way to get up and going on your moving day? Well it is a method that packing experts call the four week packing plan and it is geared to put an ease on packing and moving. If one were to following this method closely they would find themselves less frustrated and eager to keep things organized before the moving company arrives.

In the fourth week, you should already have your packaging items together. By this we mean your tape, marker, bubble wrap and of course moving boxes. Set them aside in an unused closet or storage area and concentrate more on ridding your home of unwanted items. You may have a few items of clothing that are two sizes too small or even dishes and other household items that may be taking up too much space. You can decide to either give them away to charity or have a huge garage sale and collect money for them. Even your friends can benefit from the items that you no longer need.

Also in this fourth week you can commence packing some of the boxes and label them as you go along. You would find that labeling your boxes would save you a lot of time when you get to your new location.

There are special rules and regulations that apply when you are relocating a firearm. Take this time to get information from your transport and declaration personnel about the policy for moving such items.

By week three you should be packaging items that are hardly in use year-round. This could include christmas decorations, comforter and drapery from the guest room etc.

When week two rolls around, you should be partially packed and trying to confirm arrangements with your moving company. This is the time that you should be finalizing dates and time that the movers would be coming to your location to move your items. And even if you are not using a moving company and you are getting assistance from your friends or relatives, make sure that you also confirm date and time with them so that other arrangements could be made should they be able to assist.

Everything should be packed except items that that you immediately need, especially utensils and cooking items by the final week. Your mop and broom as well as cleaning detergents should be left out so you can commence tidying up your soon-to-be old location.

Dated food stuff should be weed out of your refrigerator cupboards and freezer and thrown into the trash. For the food that has not expired, try to use them within your last week at your old location. By this last week you should have already had most of your items all done before relocation. The day before the date that you set for moving should be spent on packaging the kid's toys, family clothing and toiletries.

Large furniture should also be dismantled and set aside for the movers to load up and take to your new spot. When the "big" day arrives and you are all packed you should first get the movers to take your immediate items to the new location.
