Moving Day Cleaning Tips for End of Tenancy
A couple of simple steps will surely make your move-in day into a new place easier and more comfortable. Take a look at these time-bound strategies that you must try to apply.
2-3 MONTHS OUT
- Start packing and tossing
It’s going to be hard leaving items behind. But you have to decide beforehand what you need in your new home. No one wants cluttered and unused stuff at home. Most definitely, your home does not deserve a haul of unused stuff.
1 MONTH OUT
- Decide on a strategy
It’s good to decide you need to hire a car or a truck to save time on moving. If you are going to cover a long distance from an old home to a new one, you will have to figure out how to maximize the space of the truck. Make things easier for you by listing important details in advance to help movers.
While making a list, you have to keep in mind the number and size of items. You must greatly consider bulky items like sofas, antiques, and pianos.
Aside from those, you must also consider the number of stairs or elevators you will have to get through in both your pickup and drop location is also an important question.
- Get permits and permission
Last but not least, you need to sort it out when the elevator doesn’t run or is out of service. You will need a backup strategy on how to bring up those bulky items.
Another thing is if it’s going to be easy to have a parking slot to park the truck and unload your stuff. Look into local parking regulations and secure permits ahead of unloading time, especially if you plan to do so on weekdays.
- Transfer utilities
Before checking in to the new place, make sure you have Wifi, electricity, gas, water, and of course, cable. No one would like to spend the first night at the new home in the dark and starving the whole night.
1-2 WEEKS OUT
- Pack a survival kit
You need a pretty long list of things on hand throughout the move to a new place, from Sharpies and duct tape! In case you forget, last-minute packing or labeling comes out of the box. Don’t miss out on those trash bags and cleaning supplies!
- Charge your phone!
The most important thing, not to forget an external charger or charge your mobile 100% to communicate with movers, check traffic, and cleaning services.
- Work in shifts
It’s always good to move with fresh spirits, a new start needs to be fresh and full of strength. Take advantage of family and friends to give you hands in packing the stuff, move-out, and move-in to the new place.
- Load in layers
You have to be very careful about uploading the items onto the truck with a little strategy. To avoid tumbling boxes you have to start with the heaviest items like a piano, couches, mattresses, and antiques. Carefully layer on those mattresses or cushion them with furniture pads.
You can use oddly shaped items to fill in the spaces closest to the front of the truck and don’t forget to count all the boxes and make sure you check everything before leaving your old home.
- Unload straight to the right rooms
Instead of shifting all the boxes to the garage or basement, bring each box to its intended room. This should tremendously reduce your work after shifting to the new place. You must also start unpacking as soon as possible and it is going to be easier and less time-consuming.
- Hold the deliveries
One needs to schedule furniture deliveries before or after the big day. It’s better to have a moving day without having to wait for a new couch to arrive.
- Take inventory
Double-check the list of stuff you made before loading the truck and after unloading it. Make sure each box arrived safe and sound. Don’t rashly unpack all the boxes and establish a plan where to keep that box separate from trash.
- Moving Out Clean
