Packing an entire household can be exhausting. You may want to look at a moving company to pack your possessions. Also, it is difficult to get full insurance coverage for items you have packed yourself.
When choosing a moving company ask what associations they belong to, what memberships they hold, the standards they maintain and for references from past clients. Compare the quotations carefully to make sure they are all offering the same thing and check the insurance policies on offer.
Make sure items that aren't to be packed, such as the car keys, documents and any required medication are put in a clearly labeled area.
Make sure your insurance is adequate to cover unforeseen accidents during moving.
Discuss your move with your children to ensure they understand what is happening.
If you have pets, put them in a boarding home. It is extremely difficult to keep them safely shut away, and you don't want to lose them.
On moving day it is often a good idea to have your children visit friends or family. Children can get upset by the packing process.
Make sure everyone stops to eat and drink to keep energy levels up.
Pack one box with essentials for you and your helpers on moving day - a couple of glasses, cups, plates and cutlery, plus snacks.
Use disposable utensils on your moving day.
