Among the most stressful things in life is moving. Whether it is moving house or relocating the office, you are bound to face some ups and downs that can be very frustrating. This week at Yululate we are trying to make the process of moving a bit easier. We are giving you some moving tips as well as highlighting some moving companies in Nairobi that will make moving as easy as possible.
Pack Non Essential Items Ahead of Time
You know you are moving a week from now, pack all the things you wont be using in the week first. It’ll save you time. It can be an added advantage in terms of cost. Come moving companies in Nairobi offer packing services and charge extra. If you start packing early, you wont have to pay for it.
Pack Essential Stuff Separately
If you know you won’t be able to unpack immediately, pack the essential items separately. This way, if you need to be at work early the next day, you know where the change of clothes and toiletries are. Ensure it’s the last thing to be put in the moving truck. Most moving companies in Nairobi will give you the same advice.
If you don’t Have Enough Bubble Wrap, Use Clothing for Breakables
Most Kenyans will use old newspapers to wrap their breakables. Some will use bubble wrap. If you are short on both, you can wrap them in clothing. This way you’ll also be packing clothing as you pack the utensils. When you get there, unpack the breakables over a padded surface
This is such a time saver. Label boxes according to what it contains. You can go as far as labeling them according to which room they’re supposed to go into. Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box.
Pack Electronics in Original Boxes
Hopefully you saved the box the Tv, fridge or the microwave came in. You however don’t need to stress over this so much as most moving companies in Nairobi provide packing boxes. With electronics you also want to take a picture of the wiring before you disconnect them. It’ll be easier when reconnecting.
Pay for Utilities Up to the Last week
If you pay for electricity tokens, buy enough to only last you until the time you are moving. You don’t want to pay for a whole month’s bill then end up moving in a week. Same goes with water and internet.
