Tips and Tricks for Same City Moves
Moving is moving; whether it is across town or across the country it still requires a lot of planning, packing, cleaning, and patience. However, there are some differences between a small move and a big move. If you find yourself with an opportunity to move into a perfect little home just across town, there are ways to take advantage of your short move. To make your move easier, here are some tips and tricks for same city moves.
Just because you are moving within the same city, doesn’t mean you don’t need to put in the time and plan ahead. Sure, it will take you less time to actually get across town, but you still need a plan. Make a list of all that needs to happen before, during, and after your move. You need to stay organized on the tasks required of you, and in what order they should be accomplished no matter how far you’re moving.
One of the great things about being so close to your new place, is that you’ll (hopefully) have easy access to your new house or apartment. This means that when it comes to buying furniture or planning where to put existing furniture, you can easily pop over to measure a wall, a closet, or the kitchen cabinets. This means you can begin planning the layout of your new home much earlier, and accomplish that aspect of moving before your move rather than after.
If you’re moving within the same city, why not ask friends or neighbors to borrow boxes rather than buy new ones? Because you’ll still live close by, you can easily return boxes or other borrowed packing items to their original owner. This will save you a lot of money and the hassle of storing moving boxes in your new home.
When it comes to packing up your things for a same city move, you’ll be able to make a few adjustments. For example, because your move is so close, you’ll be able to get away with leaving clothes in drawers or on the hangers. You can also use household items like towels and clothes as padding for fragile items, instead of buying bubble wrap. Same city moves also mean that you’ll be able to keep plenty of your perishable food items and plants that might not last during a longer journey.
Hire A Professional
