If you have ever moved to a new town or city before, then you know for sure how exhausting the whole exercise can be. It always seems easy at first though because of all the excitement that often comes along with the thought of calling a new town or city your home. It is during the excitement that one forgets a few basic yet essential home items.
In some cases, one can actually forget a few vital home items like appliances. Then there are those who get their electronics mixed up and mess up everything as they try to locate cables and chords. Fortunately, it is easy to avoid such situations by taking into account a few preventive measures to help you stay focused and move without hitches. Simply take the following tips into account.
Pack your plants
It is easy to pack everything and completely forget about plants. To make sure this does not happen, or you are not forced to leave it behind in a rush, make a small list of all the plants you wish to take with you. Alternatively, you can mark with a highlighter them if they are all potted. There are boxes and buckets designed to carry potted plants when moving in most stores, so be sure to get one. Then make sure that the plants stay in a well hydrated or aerated space if you will be on the road for a long time. The last thing you would want when moving is to arrive at your new place with a withered plant.
Label your electronics items
This is important and can actually go a long way to help you fix up your electronics at your new place. Think about all the cables behind your TV set or behind your desktop computer. Unplugging them may be easy. Not so when it comes to reconnecting them and you suddenly don’t remember which cable goes where. You can of course, refer to the user manual, but what would happen if you do not have the user manual as well?
Tie chords and cables together
Any person who has some basic experience in moving in Milwaukee will tell you for a fact that it’s easy to forget chords and cables during the move. This should not happen because all you need to do is to tie up all the chords and pack them in a box or a clear Ziploc bag. You can label each chord if they are too many to handle.
Make arrangements for your pets
Pets always have a hard time during relocation. Think about your dog, cat, parrot or any other pet you have. Do they have a place to stay in as they move, if the answer is no, then by all means get the pets a cage they can stay in as you move. Then move with the pet accessories. It could be its leash or even its toy. Pets, like humans get attached to their ‘property.’ With that in mind, never ignore your pet when moving!
