Moving your household is stressful and, if you’re not properly prepared, overwhelming. Not sure where to start? Fret not. We are here to help. These are the initial things you need to keep in mind for a successful relocation.
1.Fix a budget
Keep aside the money you need for your pre-move and post-move process. You don’t want to end up spending more moolah than you anticipated.
2. Find your perfect packers and movers
There are so many packers and movers out there. It is a humoungous task to determine the good ones and to secure quotes from them as most of them will insist on house inspections before they give a quote. But you can use Pikkol or the free Pikkol App and book packers and movers or hire a truck very conveniently.
3. Sort your stuff
This is a huge challenge, unless you’re a minimalist who doesn’t have too many things in the first place. Sort through your belongings and get rid of the things you don’t need. Set up an open home day, donate to charity or sell them off. This will give you an idea of how much stuff you own and how long the packers and movers will take for packing. Also, make sure to you secure your valuables like jewellery, watches and wallets before the D-day.
4. Branded Furniture
Many packers and movers do not disassemble imported furniture that require trained brand technicians from the brand. In case you have branded furniture that need specialists to disassemble, it would be better to get the technician from the company to visit you and dismantle those at least one day before the D-Day.

5. Clean out your kitchen
Try to finish off those unopened packets and canned food before the packers and movers arrive on the final moving day. This is also a good time to de-clutter your kitchen. Defrost your freezer a day or two before D-day.
6. Essential services
Notify your local postal office and your bank of your new address. Inform your milkman and newspaper agent about when they can stop their services. Disconnect your cable/internet services.
7. Children and Pets
Make arrangements for someone to watch your children on your moving day. Pets can be put up at a boarding for a day or two. Read here : How to make your move an adventure for the kids
8. Getting help
It doesn’t matter if you're hiring a truck or the packers and movers sends its porters, it is a good idea to get some friends to help you. Inform them about the moving day in advance, so that they can be around and maybe even help you clean up, but more importantly, bring out a bottle of champagne and toast to all the good times you’ve had in the house.
