Clear your Junk
When you move you may find that there are a lot of things in your house that you haven't used in a long time. These things should be gotten rid of before you move for a few reasons. When you get to your new home, you will want to make sure that it is not cluttered with things that you don't need. By getting rid of these items not only will you reduce clutter in your new home but you may even be able to make some money by selling them. If you don't want to sell things, you could always donate it to charity or give it to friends. It is also worth noting that clearing your junk and not clearing it could be the difference between having one load for the moving company and having to have two. This will save you money.
Pack your belongings
Before you move you will need to organise and pack your belongings. The main reason that you will want to pack your belongings is that it makes everything several times easier to transport than if everything was loose. When packing it is important that everything is packed in an organised fashion. This means that you will want everything to be sorted either by type of item, place where the item will be put in the new house or some other criteria. This will make it easier to find things when you get to the new home as well as making your unpacking go more smoothly and efficiently.
Clean the current house
Whether you are ending a lease or selling a house you will want to make sure the place is in top condition. Not only is this polite to the next people that will be inhabiting the house, it will also be beneficial to you. If you are renting, chances are that your rental agreement requires you to leave the home in a certain standard when you vacate it. If you fail to do this there will be penalties such as not getting your deposit back. If you are selling the house, cleaning it to a high standard will make people more likely to want to buy it. Several days of work could mean an increase of several thousands of dollars depending on what the state of the house was in previously. Because of all of this, it is clear that cleaning the house properly before you vacate it is very important.
Organise a moving company
You will want to make sure that you have a moving company booked to move your furniture and other belongings to the new home. You will want to book this as early as possible to make sure that you get the best price possible. Booking early also ensures that nothing goes wrong. You don't want to book the company at the last minute only to find that you can't get one. A moving company is invaluable when you are moving house so being caught without one can be a very serious issue. Not only will they save you time, they will also protect you from straining yourself or exhausting yourself during a time where you already have a lot to do.
