You have signed the mountain of paperwork, the deed and title is in your name. Now it’s time to move in and start making this place your own. Moving to your new house may be exciting, but it’s also stressful. For this reason, we at Home Key Title in Westborough, MA., would like to share some useful advice to make your move easier.
Have a Plan
It is very important that you plan your move in advance. This also gives you a great opportunity to get rid of your clutter. Go through each room and decide which items you won’t be needing in the future. Make a keep stack and a discard stack.
Sell or donate the items in your discard stack. This can include large items such as furniture and appliances. Having a garage sale will not only off-load your unneeded stuff, but you can make a bit of money as well.
Pack it Up
The next step is getting everything you need packed and ready to go. Boxes, tape, bubble wrap and a marker are essential. Pack your fragile items with bubble wrap, towels, or newspaper. Be aware though that newspaper can transfer ink onto your things if the humidity is too high. Don’t forget to mark each box with a general description and the room where it belongs, that way it will be easier to retrieve anything you need.
Moving Your Stuff
How you move your stuff depends on different things; how much stuff do you have? How far will you be moving? Can you get friends and family to help? Do you have a friend that owns a truck? Consider all these things and find out whether it is more convenient to hire a moving company or rent a truck and do it yourself.
