Whether you are a first-time homeowner moving into your new apartment or a tenant simply relocating to another place, moving can be a hassle. However, with simple planning and thoughtful process you can mitigate the stress that comes with moving into a new apartment.  Here are 5 helpful tips to make your home shifting easier.


Friends or professionals?

If you are moving to a location that is not very far away from your current location and you possess only a few belongings, then you can take the help of friends or family members to help you shift to your new home. But to minimize hassle, it is best to hire professional movers. Contact them in advance and make sure the movers are trusted so you do not miss your valuables after home shifting.

Start packing in advance

Procrastinating until last minute to pack your stuff is a recipe for disaster. So plan ahead. Start packing stuff you do not use frequently such as decorative items for your apartment decor, seasonal clothes, etc and save the essentials such as toothbrush, hair brush, kitchen utensils for later. This way you will find the items you require for daily use within your reach.

Donate unused or unnecessary stuff

If you are a first-time homeowner, then it’s best to not take everything from your rental home to your new apartment. Instead de-clutter your apartment a week before the moving day and donate old furniture pieces or clothes items. This will save you valuable time and make home shifting easier. You can also decorate your brand new apartment in any new style you want with a fresh touch.

Keep essentials with you

When moving into a new apartment, it’s easy to mix your old documents with important ones in a forgetful mind.  Keep all the essential documents, such as passport, property deed for your real estate property, legal papers, etc in a personal folder and make sure they are well within your reach so you do not lose them. You should also pack a separate bag with all your personal belongings and a fresh change of clothes so that when you move into your new apartment, you will be ready to take charge. Make sure you do this for each family member so that everyone is ready. If you have kids, teach them to pack theirs too which will help them to be organized and responsible and at the same time it will reduce the moving day stress.

Keep track of your items

Another important home shifting tip is to have a checklist of everything you need to move into your new home. And count the number of bags, boxes, etc so once you arrive at the destination you can mentally check that nothing is missing. While unpacking recheck everything to make sure everything is in order.

Hopefully, with these moving tips and tricks your moving day will be easier and stress-free. If you are looking to buy apartments in Bangladesh and move into your own home, you can browse through bti properties for sale.
