THE OVERLOOKED ASPECTS OF MOVING
You’ve settled on a new place and are ready to start the next chapter of your life. The finish near is clear and NOW you just must cross it. With so many different aspects involved with moving homes, it’s easy to forget about something here or there. Here are some tips that will help ensure that your moving day is a smooth one, void of any unnecessary last-minute headaches and heartbreaks.
REMOVING HEAVY AND FRAGILE ITEMS FROM DRESSERS
It’s the day before the move, and you still haven’t finished packing. Putting away the dishes are taking way longer than you expected. But at long last, you think that you’ve finally finished packing up your whole house. You breathe a sigh of relief, as you pour yourself a glass of celebratory wine. You walk around your place one last time, and notice a dresser in the corner, full of stuff. You are too tired to care, and figure that it can be moved as is.
What you didn’t realize is that your dresser doesn’t like change. Its frame and legs are not used to moving around, especially with drawers full of odds and ends. The move finishes and there is only one casualty- that poor dresser, along with all the broken items inside. Now that late night judgment call is all you can think about. Items need to be replaced or repaired, and that time you saved last night, is coming back to haunt you.
This is a frustrating moment that could have easily been avoided. If it is a lightweight dresser, remove everything before the move. It is simply not worth the risk. For sturdier dressers, it is usually fine to leave items like clothing inside, while fragile items should always be removed.
