Even for an intercity move (move across town), the time and effort required to pack and move everything will be same when compared to a long distance move. You have to put enough time and effort in packing of household items, so that it can be transported safely and you do not end up damaging any of the item. And for that, packing and handling has to be of greater standard.
Local shifting can be fun when you know how to get it right. Cutting the long story short, here’s what you can do to eliminate hassles and get it right.
To do list
Take a diary or a writing pad to list the activities that you have to do to get everything relocated safely. The to-do-list for local shifting should include some of the important tasks, like items to be packed, things to get discarded, movers to be contacted, date etc. Jot down the points and accordingly start ticking it off, once the task is accomplished. Do not trust your brain and memories now; just write it down so that you do not miss any of the crucial points by any chance.
DIY or hiring professionals
Are you planning to DIY or hire a local packers and movers company for help? There are heavy furniture in your house like cupboards, sofa, beds etc. There are heavy appliances too TV, washing machines, fridge etc. Are you sure that you will be able to lift the items and pack them properly for the move? If you are not confident then it is better to use local shifting service from a local movers and packers company.
DIY is usually for guys living in a hostel, with just a few items to move and a bunch of friends who can assist in the process. Not suited for families.
Plan when you have time at hand
Invest enough time so that there is no rush or compulsion. Usually, finding movers for next day shifting is not the best thing to do. Do not keep any important activity for the last minute. Start packing and preparing for the move at least keeping a month’s time in hand. So that, when the movers arrives for the packing, they see exact list of things that has to be moved.
Packing for intercity home relocation
The safety of your goods is in your hand, your packing will determine how much strong they are to endure the journey. Even though the distance is not long, still you will obviously want your goods to be in best conditions.
Screen your goods
What are the goods and objects that you will want to pack and take in your new home? Do not be a hoarder and pack everything. There are many objects that are broken, damaged, unwanted, unused. You can get rid of these items by throwing it away, or putting them on sale and earn some extra bucks, or donate them. The lesser the items the lesser will be the moving expense.
You must use proper packing materials like the hard boxes, wooden crates, bubble wraps, bed sheets, crumbled papers, packing tape, foam and cardboard chips etc. You need the suitable and strong packing materials for the objects. The shape, size and weight of the item will determine the kind of packing materials to be used. And remember, proper packing is crucial and there should be no compromise on the quality of packing materials and the packing.
Pets and plants
The pets and plants are generally non-allowable when it comes to relocation. But thanks to the short distance move, you are just moving across town. So you can take the pets and plants along with you in your car. But make sure to discuss the same with the mover you are working with, so they can make necessary arrangements.
