So you bought more than you can move to? Yeah, many people realize that they have way too much stuff to move in one go or even two trips. It’s that first world problem showing up yet again! But hey, this is not the end of the world. We have explored some ways you can make moving a whole lot easier and keep your things safe too. Because that is the worry isn’t it? It’s how do we move all of our things, without them being robbed, broken or left behind? This is why we want to do everything in one giant trip. It’s also because we have time constraints foisted upon us and we have to rush ourselves. Here is how to do things calmly and in order.
Trash bags (yeah really)
Okay, after you have packed and wrapped most of your most prized possessions, you need to not worry too much about the other things. We’re just going to keep it real with you guys. If you need to move in a hurry, then you need to just throw your things into a trash bag and get them to the new house, any way possible. By any means necessary, you will get your clothes and shoes to the new house, even if they end up creased and mixed. It’s a pain in the backside having to make pairs of your shoes again, and iron out all of your clothes before you hang them up, but hey, when you don’t want to worry right now, a trash bag is irreplaceable.
Don’t you just wish you could just fly off to a remote island, drop your things off and come and collect them later, when you’re good and ready? Well, nothing like that exists; at least we don’t think so. But you do have the secure storage option. This service gives you your own storage unit, with its own lock and key. You can store your items in an airtight storage unit, which will not be accessed by anyone and will keep your things safe. Why use this? Well, you can put half of your things in these kind sod units, and then come back once you have settled into your new home. Take the weekend to unpack your other things and then when you’re ready, collect your things the next weekend and unpack them.
If you want to move everything in one giant go, then it’s mission impossible time. You need to get up early! You can get up at 4 am, get your things ready and start moving at 5 or 6 in the morning. You can be back by breakfast time, or lunchtime and then do another trip. You can make 3 trips in one day, if you plan things right. Sometimes, you just have to be the early bird to get things done.
When you have so much stuff that you cannot move it all in one trip, these are just some of your better options. Can you think of any others that we didn’t mention?
