What you should know before you move home for the first time

Living at home and living with your family is one of the best things in life. You get all of your commodities taken care of and you live a very comfortable life. However, there comes a time when you have to leave the nest and experience moving for the first time. If that is the case, then you need to know some of the key points of moving! 

  • It is important to organize. Make a moving plan. What do you need to bring to your new place? How much time can you spend packing before the moving day? How many boxes will you fill? This will make your relocation extremely smooth and you will know exactly what to do every step of the way.
     
  • Get help. Ask your family to help you pack and guide you through the process. Never underestimate learning form more experienced people. Another big tip is to get a mover. I used this moving company from Chicago and it made all the difference. I was able to load the items I wanted to a van and it was transported to my new apartment hassle free. It will make sure you have a pleasant first timer experience.
     
  • A good advice is to label everything! Label all the boxes and packages. The label should include the name of the items( e.g. clothes, winter jackets, desk lamps, etc.) and where are they going to/which room is it for (e.g. for study, for bedroom closet, for kitchen pantry, etc.).
     
  • Research the new area thoroughly. Make sure you know what kind of neighbourhood, how long will your commute be from now on etc. It also a good idea to take picture of the new flat layout so that it is easy to get the furniture and other items that will fit there perfectly.
