When you close the door on your old house for the last time, its a great idea to leave the new owners a welcome pack.
If you happen to have older kids or teenagers you can get them involved using the same techniques or maybe a simple promise of a night out on their new town. Take them out to see a movie, go to the mall or out to eat at a local popular eatery. Try being creative, Calgary is a fun town for all ages. Museums, theme parks, theatres, plays, sport complexes or school groups.
So heres a summary of what are some very useful moving tips (from small loads movers Calgary) :
Your current home works for you without really having to think about things anymore. You have the right flooring, furniture, window dressings etc that fit your lifestyle.
However, when you move you may have agreed to leave certain things in the house such as curtains, freezer etc..
As such, its worth making a list of these things, remembering to leave them behind and not pack them (put a sticker on things that the removals company shouldnt touch to be safe).
You dont want to end up moving only to find you have brought something with you that you shouldnt have!
Take a look behind your living room TV
What do you see?
Chances are its a mass of wires and plugs working perfectly for you but confusing to say the least.
A really great tip is to get some coloured stickers** and stick the same colour to each socket and each end of the cable so that you can easily set everything technical up in your new home.
To go one step further why not take a photo of the setup so you can have a visual reminder as well.
By now your car will be very full! (valuables, paperwork, essentials box and a box for each child), but theres one thing extra thats worth taking with you and that is bedding.
If you have your bedding ready to go when you get to your home whether you arrive late at night or have more time to unpack, you know that you have something to sleep on and be more comfortable on that first night.
After all things can go slowly on moving day, and you may not get your keys until its really too late to start unpacking so best be prepared!.
