You will find moving to a new town or house a very tedious and exhausting process at first. The first and most crucial step is to clear your schedule and create time for planning and organizing your possessions. Only by decluttering will you know what to give away and what to take with you.
To avoid boredom, use the traffic light system to organize your belongings. The technique involves using colorful sticky notes to label the different boxes. Sometimes, it is less stressful to do this yourself to avoid confusion or breaking fragile objects as you move.
If you do not plan to resell the remaining products, you should do a house clearance. Several house clearance companies are willing to take up all responsibility at a small fee. The following are some of the chips to guide you through your house clearance process:
Identify a Reputable Company
Unfortunately, you may come across unethical moving companies online. Therefore do extensive research on all companies before taking a quote. Although you may not need the belongings they are taking away, they may cause damage to your old apartment, especially when you’re not around during the clearance.
Share Parking Information and the Address
Naturally, the company will need to know where they are going. You should also specify the house number. Any form of confusion would lead to unnecessary stress and delays.
Keep the company informed on any parking costs or requirements when they are conducting the clearance. Of course, this is a form of courtesy since they will be new in your old residence.
Also, tell them where they should park so that they do not break the rules of your former apartment. Furthermore, it will save time on the clearance period as they will come prepared. After all, the less time they spend, the less you pay.
Inform Your Neighbors Before the Clearance
In most cases, you will not be around while the clearance company arrives; therefore, inform your neighbors that they will be coming. Otherwise, the neighbors may panic and call security all the police, creating a delay in the process.
Do not Add Things to the Property after Taking the Quote
You need to retain the integrity and the air of trust between you and the clearance company. Adding items after taking the quotation is a sign of bad character. If you add something to the unwanted belongings, inform the company before they get to the property and adjust the bid.
Ensure Your Safety During Clearance
Last but not least, ensure that the apartment is airy while you sort through your belongings while packing if you have the clearance by yourself. This consideration is significant if you are allergic to dust and have allergic rhinitis.
You should not conduct a house clearance without the help of neighbors or friends. Because this is a tedious and stressful process, and you need all the help you can get. However, if you have to do it yourself, ensure you are safe from cuts or falls.
