Moving from one place to another brings with it an upgrade in many forms. As the old saying goes, new look=new you, the same logic applies when you move. A new office means new opportunities, business chances, environment and more. The way we look at our offices has drastically changed over the past few years with the pandemic and all, but the concept remains the same. It’s the place we work, whether from home or anywhere else. And when it’s time to move, it’s time to embrace change with all that comes with it.
1. Time is on our side
It may seem strange to say that, seeing as we are all always in a rush or running on a tight schedule, but when it comes to moving, time is working in your favour. Since you know the exact day of the moving event, everything from now till then is your time frame. Within it, you can plan everything ahead and not get blindsided. To help you with this planning there is a myriad of free moving planning apps online, all ready to make this chore a breeze. When you plan, you eliminate stress from the equation and with less stress comes more energy to devote to other, more meaningful items.
2. Helping hands
During moving there is so much to do, usually all at once. It can be a bit overwhelming for a single person, but luckily you don’t have to be that single person. Your phonebook is packed with family, relatives, friends and acquaintances that can help out. Granted, you need to provide pizza and beer as is custom, but tradition is tradition. We admit that organising around people’s schedules can be a bit too much and your move date is usually fixed.
Having that in mind, you can always go for plan B and reach out to the best and efficient home and office removals that can pinch in the nick of time. Trusting your valuable belongings to trained professionals buys you peace of mind, knowing that everything will remain the same during the move. Moving companies also have their supplies, trucks and as many people as it’s needed to make this move happen flawlessly.
3. Back up everything
Your plates, pots and glass have only one life. Once they are broken, there is no going back, so applying extra care to them is paramount. Many people forget that the same applies to their data on all those USBs and hard drives that have to be moved as well. Treat any data you have as glass, and then you will realise just how fragile data is. A single bump or tumble can damage or destroy your hard drive and with it all that hard work you had saved until now. Such tragedies can easily be avoided by backing up everything to a Cloud service. There are plenty, and free online, so one quick Google search can save you from all the headaches.
4. Gear up
To put this one simply, all of your stuff has to go into stuff and needs stuff so that it can be moved. Boxes, bubble wrap, labels, duct tape, and packing paper. All these represent the bare necessities you need to make a successful move happen. Don’t skimp out or cut corners on such trivial items. A sturdy box with quality duct tape, packed to the brim with packing paper or bubble wrap, protects your valuables inside. Trying to save some money on moving supplies can cost you a fortune in the damage that can happen to your items. Not to mention that quality boxes ease your moving process, for they are easier to handle, can hold plenty of items, and don’t break under pressure.
Moving is all about how you approach it. With the right mindset, the moving period can be treated as a transition period towards a better tomorrow. All that stands in between is one, simple action, and you are ready to pick up where you left off. Box by box, step by step, and the entire moving process will be complete before you know it. The most important step to take is the one that gets you started! We wish you all the best.
