Relocation requires a lot of planning and organizing – irrespective of what anyone says! Planning ahead helps with seamless relocating and avoids all last-minute panic and confusion. Also, it helps ensure that you don’t overlook any important detail.

You’ll also be required to change your contact address for the services you utilize, for example, your bank accounts. Ensure you inform all the utilities about your relocation.

It’s a good idea to take a few trips to your new home and get a feel of the place. Items that were perfect for your old home might not look quite so good in your new house, so this should help you discard and organize your items.

While you can purchase packing supplies and do this on your own, it’s best to hire professional movers who can handle this with utmost ease and comfort. You will already have a ton of work to do, and if you have children, then you will anyway be completely drained in work.

Before the moving crew arrives, take stock of all the items in your house; do this at least three weeks before the move. Take care to label all of your items; especially the ones that are fragile or valuable to you. Dispose or give away stuff that is not useful for your new home – you don’t want to be saddled with extra baggage.

Before it’s time to move into your new home, don’t forget to supervise the crew and check if all is going well. As far as important documents and jewelry are concerned, keep them protected in a separate container – you don’t want these items getting lost or misplaced.

While the packers use high quality material to protect your goods from dust and any other environmental hazards during transport, it’s best to clean your new house completely. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Oversee the packers as they arrange your items accordingly, and always insist on a receipt of all the items that were transported.

Clear out all the excess packing material like boxes, labels, packing tape, etc. If you’re living in a flat, evaluate your building management’s waste disposal policy and dispose accordingly. Settle in, and enjoy your new home!

Relocating can be a very stressful period, however, we’re here to make it simple for you! While our professional crew will take care of everything, there are certain things you want to be in control of. Follow the 4 ‘P’ rule when it comes to relocating – Preparation, Planning, Patience and Positive Attitude. Here are a few tips which will make the process way smoother and relaxed for you!

ORGANIZE & CLEAN

Bring out the label maker – organize and segregate your things as per their need. Everything that belongs to be bedroom, label it. Everything that goes into the study – label the same. This will help you simplify your life at your new place. Once everything is marked, you will be able to do a clean-up of your house as well. Whatever isn’t labeled, is something you don’t need. Discard it or donate it – as it will make it far simpler to pack and unpack later. Also, remember to keep important documents and jewelry separately as you don’t want these getting misplaced through this entire relocation process.

BACK-UP

While it might seem irrelevant to back up all your data from the computer, tablet, work-files – it’s important to do this so that nothing is lost in the process of moving out. While our team ensures everything is placed correctly and properly, these are things you don’t want to stress about.

EVALUATE

Decluttered rooms help packers move a lot quicker as they have clear-level surfaces to work on. Whatever is fragile, mark it appropriately so that the crew takes extra care while handling the boxes. Anything that has a sentimental or financial value attached to it, take extra care, evaluate and keep in mind what needs to be done – whether or not it requires your personal attention or if any other precaution needs to be taken.

SUPERVISE

Yes, while our packers are experienced and have done this multiple times – it is your home and your space. No one knows it like you do – so oversee, answer their doubts and communicate your expectations, this will ensure a seamless relocation!

Also, a bonus tip – stock up on refreshments – moving can be supremely tiring!
