Moving to a new Edmonton home goes beyond stuffing personal belongings to big brown boxes, it goes beyond that.
Apart from coordinating with the moving company and making sure you have plenty of boxes and Styrofoam to go around, you have to prepare days in advance to facilitate some essential requirements so you don’t beaten on the move in date.
Don’t forget to check on the following pre move-in requirements.
a) Get a pet license if your new place requires it.
b) Install new locks and alarms.
c) Install fitting curtains.
d) Install needed fixtures and furnishings.
After that’s done, here are six of our Team Leading Edge packing life hack:
- Create an essentials-kit. This essentials-kit should help you get through the first 48-hours of the move. The kit must contain toothpastes and brushes, toilet paper, shampoo and other toilet supplies.
- Save money from eating out by packing ready-made dishes & cooking equipment.
- Color code your boxes according to the room they belong to (Green for the master’s bedroom).
- Avoid getting dents and scratches on your furniture by wrapping around old towels and blankets.
- Suitcases are best for storing your beloved books vs cardboard boxes
- Place screws, nails or pins to a re-sealable bag and tape that bag to the necessary furniture it belongs to.
