Moving is a big deal. Do you know that the major stress events in life that they question you about when estimating your longevity is to ask about things such as death of a family member and moving? I was amazed to see them listed in about the same level of importance as stress events. Moving your household involves a lot more than the physical labor. Yes, you need to keep your job and still get the move done. However, there is all the emotional parts of moving too. We needed cheap movers in Singapore to move us as we were on a tight budget. On the other hand, we needed a company that would do a great job moving us.
We did a lot of the packing ourselves. We paid the money to get real moving boxes and packing materials. The last time we got boxes from grocery stores and other places. We even had some things in bags. Well, we also had a lot of damaged items. On the other hand, I have a friend who moved and they used all new packing materials. They did not even lose a drinking glass in their move. That is why we are doing things a bit differently this time.
Another thing we did was to start packing early. We packed non-essential things and had them ready to go into the moving van. The big items were prepared and wrapped by the moving company. We emptied every drawer and thoroughly cleaned each piece of furniture. This way we did not have to worry about doing that when we got to our destination. Just a simple dusting with furniture polish and we were back in business. There are all kinds of tips and tricks for easy moving, and you should read them all to see what will work for you.
