Order in The House! Prepare Your Home for Moving Day

Keeping your home tidy is the best policy for everyday living but it becomes even more important when you are in the middle of a move, especially if you are internationally relocating from Malaysia. You will have a lot to do in the weeks leading up to the relocation, and it helps if you start planning your move early.

It is understandable if you do not want to spend endless hours cleaning or putting everything away. However, this could be very useful when you are preparing to pack and it is essential when you are selling or renting out your home in Malaysia.

Know What You Own

Go through each room in your house and open drawers and wardrobes. Do not forget storage areas, such as attics, sheds and garages. You may also want your garage clear to hold a garage sale. Have a close look at what you own and decide which possessions you’ll leave behind and what is coming with you. Ask other members of the family to do the same with their belongings. You should start doing this soon after you have made the decision to move as it will require time, especially if you decide to sell some items.

Now you have narrowed down the number of items you are taking, you can contact Allied Pickfords to obtain a moving quote. The team at Allied has years of experience and can help you tick off any moving items off your list, which you may have not thought of or have forgotten.

Keep everything in its place to help facilitate packing so as you pack room by room it’s easier to label the boxes. Thanks to this system, you will not have to open all the boxes when you are looking for one item. You can keep an inventory of what was in each drawer, cupboard or wardrobe to unpack more efficiently and locate everything once you are in your new home.

Find Renters or Buyers

If you own your home and are thinking of selling it or renting it while you are away, it is crucial to keep it looking its best. Nothing scares potential residents or buyers more than a messy home. Your real estate agent will want to take photos of every part of the property and staging is essential. You do not need to go overboard but tidy rooms will make a huge difference to any space. Keeping it this way will also make things easier when people come over to have a look in person. No one will raise eyebrows if there are a few boxes around but make sure they do not obstruct any areas.

So when you’re ready to make the move to or from Malaysia, come to Allied Pickfords and we’ll get your belongings there safely, on time and at an affordable price. www.alliedpickfords.com.my
