Tips and Helpful Tricks to Moving on Your Own



There are two realities of moving on your own.  One is positive and the other is a challenge.  You would save some substantial money but you would have to invest a lot of labor and time.  If you are willing to bend your back, get your hands dirty and sweat it out, then you can plan to move on your own.  Otherwise, you should hire a company to assist your moving in Calgary.  Presuming that you have decided to relocate on your own, here are some helpful tips and tricks.
• Unless you have a lot of free time, you wouldn’t be able to pack all your items in a jiffy.  You need a very well planned approach.  Ideally, you should pack a little every day for a fortnight or a week leading to the date of your move.  How many days in advance you would start will depend on the quantum of stuff you have.  By the day you are moving on your own, you would have all your stuff neatly packed, without haste and without being troubled.  Pack the least used items first.  Pack the most used items last.
• Packing is a painstaking exercise and you need a few essentials.  One major requirement is boxes.  You may or may not have the boxes you need.   Chances are you would have a few, of the home appliances or products you have purchased recently.  You should not purchase boxes.  They would just be used once so the investment is unwarranted.  Check with your local grocery stores and any store whose owner is fairly known to you.  Stores have tons of boxes to spare, especially the day they get the supplies.  Schedule such a date and pick up as many boxes as you want.  You can get these for free.
• Always get a hand while moving on your own.  If not for packing, you should get some help to load and unload the stuff.  You may have enough family members to be of help or you could be alone.  You can get some friends, neighbors or a colleague from work.  Even if you don’t have any massive heavy items, it is better to get a few extra hands as that would save time.  You would be amazed at how many trips to and from the house you would have to make, picking all the small boxes and loading them onto the truck.  Moving on your own can take a whole day and even longer if you don’t have any help at all.
