things considered, it takes at least two months to prepare for a
successful move without driving yourself crazy. That gives you enough
time for planning and packing at your leisure. But, sometimes life
just doesn’t leave us with that much extra time. Maybe you got an
excellent job offer all the way across town and you start in three
weeks. Or, maybe you’ve been wanting to move for a while and that
perfect house/condo/apartment just became available, but you only
have a couple of weeks to act. What do you do? Here are some tips on
how to make it a little easier to get through.
Be Ruthless –
Start the packing process by weeding out anything and everything that
you can – it’s a great opportunity to make a clean start with
only what you need and use. That means, get rid of anything that you
can. What haven’t you used/worn/displayed in over a year? What
pieces of furniture won’t fit in your new place? Depending on the
nature of what you’re getting rid of, the trash or a charity like
the Sally Ann that you can donate to are your best options. If your
move is super quick, that can also involve donating non-perishable
food to a local food bank.
Enlist Help –
Ask friends, neighbours, co-workers – many hands make the work
lighter, as the saying goes, and if you get a few people over, you
can get most of your sorting and packing done over a single weekend.
Supplies –Our plastic moving box rentals and other moving equipment such as stairclimbers and dollies are your easiest solution to finding the
right supplies quickly. Add packing filler like packing paper or
popcorn, tape, labels, and everything else you’ll need. Since time
is short, you’ll want to get all your supplies together in short
order so you can get cracking.
Get all your non-essentials out of the way first, including out of
season clothing and other items, books, decorations, and the like.
Set aside enough clothes for the period until your moving day, and
pack up all the rest. Start with a room you don’t use as much and
box it all up. Then use that room to stack all your boxes and packed
items as you progress. Be sure to leave a few everyday essentials
for your moving day kit that you can keep in a small suitcase or
duffle bag, including medicines, toiletries for a day, and so on.
