Create A Plan Before Moving Your Furniture
Spend one full day only in doing so, at least! The right orientation and arrangement of the furniture in your new house will give you a better orientation of which exact furniture to move from the old house, as well as which ones to get rid of. Meanwhile, a sketch of each room helps the movers to locate the heavy boxes at their right spots or nearby and so you will have less work to do later. Imagine a gigantic shelve or a wardrobe, which is dismantled in dozen pieces to fit inside the box. Then, you will have to assemble all the parts after unloading and then to move that huge piece of mounted furniture to its exact place. Imagine if this place is located on the second floor of a big house and the access is only via long steep narrow stairs or maybe the door to the room is not that big, than the one in the old house. All this could be quite easier if the movers know exactly where to move the heavy furniture when it`s still dismantled and fitted in small moving boxes. Because of that, a simple floor plan or a sketch of each room is always a useful tool to have on hand. Take a look at a few examples and make your own arrangement of the big furniture items via the best and easiest way.Prepare the floor plan before the moving day and even before the making of the moving checklist!
