Move Smart 101…Secrets of the Summer II
According to my calendar, there’s about a month of summertime left. Those of you prepping to move into a newly-purchased home during this time will have your hands overflowing. This is peak moving season, made all the more enjoyable by blistering heat and summer crowds. Even if you’ve hired a reputable moving company, you’ve no doubt got a to-do list higher than the Eiffel Tower.
Fortunately, I’m following up my recent article on summertime moving with this helpful sequel. Follow these guidelines, and you’ll be waltzing your way into the land of Smooth Moving.
Give Kids a Special Place. Moving day will load a ton of responsibilities on your shoulders. The kiddies don’t have to be one of them. Consider day care or a deserving friend for child-watching duties while you’re howling at the movers for dropping your priceless antique cabinet. If the kids refuse, tell them you’re taking them to Disneyland, then deal with the disappointment after you’ve settled in.
Secure a Pooch-Sitter. If you think moving is stressful, imagine what the family dog thinks of all that frenzied activity. A good dog-sitting service definitely will be a stress-reliever for both of you. Perhaps you can persuade your friend to take both in a package deal.
Keep Track of the Little Things. Knowing where to find important screws, nuts, and bolts can mean the difference between re-assembling your ten-tier shelf or having a clutter of wood decorating your front lawn. Put these critical little items in clearly-labeled baggies to keep track of their whereabouts.
