Downsizing to a smaller apartment or house makes the moving process even more difficult, but there is no reason to be stressed – here are some tips to make it all easier for you:
- Find out how much space you will have in your new place – make accurate measurements in the rooms of your new place, then measure the larger items, such as the furniture or the bulkier appliances in your existing home to be able to figure out exactly what you can and cannot take with you;
- Declutter – every household tends to accumulate clutter, in the form of unused clothes, household appliances, even furniture. Moving to a smaller place is a great opportunity to sort through the items that you store in the attic or in the basement of your current home and to assess them in terms of usability. If you have items that are still in good condition, you can donate or sell them, but you need to toss anything broken or damaged;
- Start the process early – decluttering and packing for the move should not be rushed. Try to start early to have enough time to make wise decisions and to have time to pack everything safely, then call Wheat Ridge moving companies for quotes and schedule moving date.
