Moving Tips

Moving is one of the most stressful events in a person's life. There are many things to consider: packing, storage, timelines when events need to happen, and selling your home. Here are some moving tips:
*Tidy up closets, cabinets and storerooms.
*Clean the floors and make sure they have a fresh appearance.
*Make sure the house doesn't look cluttered. Leaving a book out makes a house looked "lived in", but a stack of out-of-date magazines looks like clutter.
*Get that kitchen to sparkle. Clean every appliance, every door and the inside of all cabinets and pantries. Is the oven dirty? Is the refrigerator cluttered with old food? Don't forget that a potential buyer might look anywhere!
*Got leaky faucets or faulty-flushing toilets? A loose toilet seat? Fix them. You never know when a potential buyer is going to check out every aspect of your bathroom, including the medicine cabinet and linen closet. How about a new shower curtain and towels?
*Clean the windows, inside and out. A bright sunny room is more appealing.
*Make sure all light switches and light bulbs work.
*Take a tour of your garage and basement. Are they tidy and dry? If not, your potential buyer could be wary of a purchase.
*Take whatever steps you need to remove any unpleasant odors such as pet odors or tobacco smoke. There's nothing worse than a bad smell to turn a buyer off. Why not bake cookies right before the house is shown?

Thanks for the useful tips. Moving is a stress full job and we need to plan it very carefully to make it less stressful. I think professional movers are a good choice. When I moved I hired Box and they did their job pretty w ell.
