Tips for packing basement belongings


Tips for packing basement belongings

Items stored in your basement could be used occasionally to brighten up your residence. For example, holiday decorations could provide your house with colorful lights that make your residence stand out at specific times, but these belongings spend the majority of the year in your house’s basement. 

However, you’re moving, and it’s necessary to bring belongings stored in your basement to your new address. Check out the following tips to successfully transport possessions stored in your basement between destinations. 

1. Use extra precaution
A safe approach benefits people who are preparing to move items from their basements. 

Examine the items in each box and ensure that these belongings are crucial to keep at your new residence. You should dispose of possessions that have fallen apart or are beyond repair before moving day. Additionally, all belongings should be stored in strong, sturdy moving boxes that are properly labeled.

2. Start early
Moving all of your possessions can be time-consuming, but you can get a head start by taking stock of the possessions stored in your basement early in the relocation process. 

Packing supplies are essential for moving day, so purchase moving boxes, tape and other items in advance. You also can spend time cleaning up the basement as you collect your belongings, as this could help you save time later. 

Support from the professional relocation movers at Stevens Worldwide Van Lines provides significant benefits during your move. These relocation experts specialize in long distance moving and are ready to help you transport all of your possessions from one destination to another. 

3. Evaluate your new residence
Just because you’re moving items out of your basement does not guarantee that these possessions can be stored in the same area of your new home. 

Conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your new residence’s basement before moving day to fully understand how much space is available. An extensive review ensures that you can effectively keep the items you once stored in the basement in the same area at your new address. 

Unfortunately, some items could be difficult to move from your property’s basement, but solutions are available. In some cases, you could take the possessions apart and put them back together after moving day. You also can sell specific belongings before your move through online resources, yard sales and other venues.

Take advantage of the available opportunities before your move to clear out your basement. When you’re done, you can enjoy a successful relocation that enables you to take plenty of your possessions to your new residence.

Tips for moving into a larger house




Tips for moving into a larger house

After years in a small, reasonable residence, you’ve decided to make the jump to a bigger home. However, your current house is filled with a variety of belongings, and you’ll still need to transport these possessions to your new residence. 

The following tips can help you pack your possessions and get these belongings ready for your upcoming move. 

1. Review the available space at your new residence
There is ample space at your new house, but this capacity can fill up quickly if you’re not careful. 

Evaluate the available space at your new house in advance. Getting ready for your relocation requires you to pack belongings, but considering where items will go in your new residence enables you to place specific belongings in the same boxes. Label these packages to save time when you unpack. 

Additionally, examine the decor and layout of your new residence. The extra space provides valuable opportunities to brighten up your home, and some of the decorations you own might not work in the residence. You can sell these items before moving day.

2. Purchase essentials before your move
One of the bedrooms in your new home might need an air conditioner to help you combat the humid summer weather, or the large kitchen could use a refrigerator. Review each room in your new house and determine which items are needed. If you do not already own these essentials, buying them in advance could save you time and money down the line.

Many opportunities are available to purchase quality products before moving day. You can visit retailers, shop online or check out thrift stores’ offerings to find the best deals. However, ensure that every item you purchase works properly and review the provider’s return policy just in case issues arise.

3. Receive support from professional relocation specialists
With world-class support from relocation movers, you can reap the rewards of friendly, courteous assistance from skilled professionals who take pride in their work. In fact, the first-rate moving experts at Stevens Worldwide Van Lines possess the knowledge and training to ensure that every move is successful. 

Stevens is more than just an average relocation and moving company – it employs only the top moving experts to provide assistance to people around the globe. You can enjoy personal moving services throughout the relocation process by hiring the talented personnel from Stevens before the big day.
