Let’s face it, “moving” and “fun” are rarely used in the same sentence and there’s a good reason for it – moving can be stressful and challenging, to say the least. But the good news is that you are moving to Durban aka paradise – where the sun always shines and the weather is always great. That in itself is enough reason to be thoroughly excited about your move.
While moving to Durban isn’t a walk in the park, it doesn’t have to stress you out completely, making your moving experience unbearable. There are certain steps you can take to make your move more straightforward. Here’s what you need to do:
Nothing great is ever achieved without a well thought out plan. Planning is crucial to a successful outcome thus before you do anything, get a plan of action. Determine when you need to start packing and what you can and can’t pack. If you’re not using a moving company, make transport arrangements for your belongings. Make sure the home you’re moving to is empty by the time you arrive to avoid being stranded on the street with a truckload of stuff.
Once you start packing you’ll find that there are many items in your home that never gets used. It’s time to sell some of those items. The more you sell, the fewer things you’ll have to pack. But don’t go crazy, keep an open mind an only sell what you don’t need or want.
Having enough of the right packing materials can make all the difference in the world. Rather spend some extra cash on bubble wrap to be sure you avoid unnecessary breakage. Opt for smaller boxes as they are easier to handle, especially when it comes to packing up the kitchen.
To avoid hours of packing each night after work, start packing weeks in advance. Soon you will notice you workload become smaller thus decreasing the stress factor. Invite friends over and offer free wine if they help you pack. Create a packing playlist and make it fun!
