HGC Tips | What to do before you move

Well, Congratulations! You’ve purchased your dream home! Moving day is coming up and you want to know what’s next on your homeowning adventure? A whole lot more. But don’t worry, we’ve prepared a quick guide to help you on your journey!

Prep
Before moving in, give your new home a top to bottom clean. Before moving in your furniture take advantage of the free moving space and get into corners and cracks for a fresh feeling. Don’t forget to prepare smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and sort your important documents separately from the items you plan on packing.

Moving inventory and budget
Whether you want to do so yourself or hire movers, believe it or not, it costs to move. Finding the right moving supplies and learning how to pack tricky items isn’t as easy as it sounds. Plastic bins or recycled boxes? Bubble wrap or craft paper? Make sure to keep your moving route in mind when making these decisions.

Unworn or outdated clothes have no place in your new closet and packing them is an extra headache you don’t need. Be honest with yourself when going through your possessions. Do you need that chutes and ladders game you had since you were four? Probably not! Toss it, your arms and back with thank you later.

Open-first
One of the biggest stresses of moving is the overwhelming amount of things to unpack. You’re allowed to go at your own pace, one of the ways you can do this is by packing an open first box! Put in your essentials and everything you need for a good night’s sleep!
