Moving with Man And Van Hackney: Sorting it All Out
Moving? Oh, it can be both exciting and daunting at the same time. Imagine a whole new adventure waiting for you in that new town. On the other hand, it’s definitely an experience that will put your organizational skills to the test.
Whether you choose to hire a man and van Hackney mover to make you move with ease, it’s still best to be prepared…months in advance! So chill. Relax. And read on. You can print this out later as your go-to when things get a little haywire.
Get a Move Planner
Some organizational pros use software to work out their lists, tables and charts. You don’t need that. Just get a notebook or a planner and jot down everything you need to make your life easier.
Get one that has zipper pouches, business card holder, and envelopes. If not, get them separately and tape, punch, or staple them onto your move planner.
Make all sorts of checklists – from whom-to-inform-about-your-new-address to your actual packing supplies list. Stuff it with business cards of moving companies and even potential plumbers. List down where you can get packing supplies on the cheap and, later on, possibly a list of trusted babysitters in the new town.
Keep it in your bag. Make it a part of your body. It will be your lifeline for the next few months until you move, and even a little further down the road after.
Label is Key
Once you have your boxes, tape, scissors, bubble wrap or newspapers ready, there is one thing you should not forget. Labels! There is no bigger nightmare than rummaging through several boxes looking for the picnic tumblers to use for refreshments for the man and van Hackney team!
For the computer savvy, use it to your advantage. You can even pretty it up and print out the labels yourself, or have them printed at the local print shop. Label and color code by room and add specifics.
Kitchen – cutlery, cups and saucers, plates, etc.
Den / Craft room
It all depends on the rooms that you have, of course, and the things you have in each room.
It doesn’t hurt to number your boxes too and put it down in your Move Planner. When the big day comes, you can easily check if you’re missing Craft Room Box #4: art supplies.
Wouldn’t it be nice to easily find your toothbrush on your first night at your new home? Pack two day’s worth of clothing, toiletries and the kids’ stuff in a suitcase. It’s just like packing for a long weekend.
Move Yourself or Moving Company?
While moving with friends is fun, getting a man and van Hackney crew will make your move so much easier. Not only that, they offer insurance so if something gets damaged, it pays for itself.
