Because moving is a stressful and tiring activity, it is essential to organize it. And when we talk about organization, it involves establishing steps. Many people don’t know where to start preparing for a Montreal move. And while others say it starts with cartons, here’s what Déménagement Constant says.
Start with sorting out business
The preparation of a residential move begins with the sorting of belongings. It will be a question of putting on one side the elements that will be used in the new residence and putting on the other side the unusable belongings for you. If you think you can sell some of these unusable items for you, do not hesitate. This will make you interesting income. Do it on the internet or by organizing a garage sale in front of your home. On the other hand, completely worn objects must go to the trash.
The business sorting stage begins 2 to 3 months before the scheduled date for the residential move. Of course, this excludes unexpected or last-minute moves. Starting very early allows you to go at your own pace and not feel the pressure of this task.
If you are the type to get rid of a business as soon as you feel that it is no longer useful to you, then this step will be easy for you to take. You won’t have to spend too much time sorting things out. On the other hand, if you are likely to collect everything in the idea of being able to use it one day, then this step will be very time-consuming and probably tedious for you. Using a professional mover like Déménagement Constant will be of great help to you.
Have a well-established schedule
Some people say that it takes at least a month and a half to prepare the boxes. It’s not a bad idea. However, one thing is to start sorting and packing things very early and the other is to be able to really do it without wasting time. For this, it is necessary to establish a calendar that responds to your context of life.
Logically, the preparation of the boxes will take a long time if you have a large amount of stuff to sort and move. A fully furnished accommodation of205 m2 will require several days or weeks to be emptied. A studio of 18 min 2 s on the other hand will only take a few days. Ultimately, this recommended 45-day period can be either extended or shortened depending on the amount of business to be taken.
Either way, it will be helpful for you to have a calendar and a notepad as soon as you start packing. For each category of business to be packed, allocate a period to be strictly respected. It must also be the case for all other tasks to be performed including the storage of rooms. For example, why not dedicate Saturday to the packaging of children’s toys?
Do not rush headlong to make the boxes
For packing things in boxes, start with objects that are not used on a daily basis. Indeed, you will need to have a functional home. And if you put away the frying pan very early for example, you will not get out of it to make some meals. Here are the things to pack first:
- clothing out of season;
- collection of postcards;
- porcelain service never used;
You can pack some so-called everyday items as long as you have them in several models. These include, for example, household linen, kitchen utensils, toiletries, etc. Over time, the boxes will pile up and take up space in your home. In order not to be buried by them, empty your cabinets and furniture that can receive filled boxes. Then put the boxes in it. This will make room for you to move around the house while waiting for the date of the Montreal move.
