Home shifting is always a big task that makes you to worry even from the first day you got to know about it. Either it is moving from one city to another or inter city only moving a home is not simple if you are not prepared well or have enough man power that carry each and everything of yours 🙂
Its not just about moving stuff from one place to another but safely & organized way so that when you are standing in new home with cartons lying here & there could arrange back easily.
An easy list :
: Count the stuff.
beds, furniture, appliances, crockery and gamla (flower pots) etc.
: Don’t carry anything that you don’t need.
start disposing or sale the stuff you don’t need like cloths, newspaper.
: Stop buying the bulk grocery items.
like wheat, rice etc even new furniture / appliances
: Ask for address change & bill collection.>
Postal department, insurance papers, bank & credit cards. As well as give the payments to newspaper man, cable wala, milkman etc.
: Mark it to remember.
When packing the stuff in cartons, put a label to simplify what’s inside. Do this even if packers & movers are helping.
: Visit it and arrange it.
Go to new place, have an idea so that can make a visual map to arrange back the things.
: Be there, and love it.
While the things are in transitions and unpacking, be present. Gradually start arranging the things and start liking the new place though attachments with old place is natural.
And many more things you will learn after the move.
