Moving is a stressful experience, whether residential or commercial. There’s a lot to take care of and not enough time.
We understand that it can all get too much. Before starting off the packing and moving process, try to calm yourself down. The more stressed out you are, the foggier you will feel, which will only affect the whole process.
Here are some of the best tips for a stress-free move by our experts:
Confirm your moving date
Speak with your new landlord about a move in date. Get a confirmation date as soon as possible. Knowing the final date will help you plan the move and prepare in advance. This will help streamline the packing process as well.
Book a moving service
The first thing you need to do when you get to know the date is to book a moving service. Dubai is a populated area and many people move locally when their lease is up which means moving services are always busy.
Book a moving service in advance to ensure the date you want is available. The later you book it, the more expensive it’s likely to be.
Packing is said to be the most time consuming part of the process. It’s physically and mentally demanding.
It’s physically demanding because all the belongings have to be packed up and it’s mentally demanding because the idea of packing all your stuff is so daunting.
To effectively pack, we recommend you get rid of all the stuff you don’t need. The less stuff you take with you, the better. Donate, give away, and sell the things you no longer require and then begin packing boxes for the move.
Pack room by room and label the boxes so that unpacking can be made easy and your belongings aren’t misplaced.
Change your mailing address on orders
If you have orders coming in, make sure you inform the companies of the new shipping address. Especially now with the global pandemic, most countries are now only allowing essential services to operate and hence, shipments and deliveries have been delayed. Companies like Amazon have also stopped taking orders.
Changing your address is essential or else the deliveries you have paid for could end up in the hands of someone else. It’s also a hassle to constantly go back to the old address to collect packages.
