RELOCATING INTERNATIONALLY? THESE TIPS ARE SURE TO SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY!
PROS DO NOT PROCRASTINATE!
GET YOUR BELONGINGS INSURED.
It simply means getting your items insured, for them to be protected and delivered to the destination safe and sound. Any loss, destruction, or damage to the items will be covered by the other party, in this case, the movers. Honestly, it is not as important for a local move, as it is for a long-distance move and especially a cross-country move. As the saying goes, “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst”, that’s exactly what we are preparing you for. In a cross-country move, getting insurance is totally worth it. You can talk to your best movers and packers in Dubai, to know, what all the insurance provided by them covers, the cost of the insurance, and if you can choose what needs to be covered exclusively.
DECLUTTER YOUR BELONGINGS.
Like everyone else, you must have accumulated a lot of stuff over the years. Look around the house and determine which items are no longer required. You can sell your items on various sites, or donate them to the underprivileged people around you. If you feel like the items will be of no use to others as well, do not hesitate to throw them away. Selling donating or throwing items that you no longer require; will also make you save money. The items to be moved will be decreased and so will the price for the move. Also, the extra cash that you make by selling the extra items can be used in buying packing material. Later, when you reach the new destination, there will be lesser things to unpack and store.
CREATE A FILE WITH ALL IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS.
First things first, there are several documents that you will need during the whole moving process. While you look around for the best moving and packing services, we suggest you store all these documents in a binder or file to stay organized. This will be a great help, later when things turn more chaotic and hectic.
PREPARE AN ESSENTIALS BAG!
CREATE A VIRTUAL INVENTORY.
DEVOTE A TABLE TO PACK SUPPLIES AND PROCESS.
As discussed before accumulating packing supplies first. These include scissors, different types of packing tapes, different-sized boxes, packing sheets, stick-ons, bubble wrap, towels and blankets, markers, plastic bags, and more. Once done with these, start setting up a surface for your packing station, this means the area will you will be packing the items. This can be easily done on any tabletop, but a dining table will serve as the best packing station for this purpose. This will help you in staying organized and you will not have to look for packing supplies here and there, as everything will be at your disposal on the packing station before the house movers and packers in Abu Dhabi initiate the moving process.
GET SPECIFIC BOXES FOR EACH ROOM.
Sure, free boxes will be useful but you will still have to buy specific boxes for specific areas of the house. For example, for the kitchen items, you can use wardrobe and corrugated boxes, for the bedroom; plastic ones can be used, and banker boxes will be useful for putting the office/school supplies. You can purchase these boxes on Amazon or from your local vendor.
