5 Ways to Ensure Your Belongings Fit in Your New Home
A move to a new home can be thrilling if you’ve found the house or condo of your dreams. You’ve had a vision in your mind for years of how the interior will look, or have been “pinning” images on Pinterest. You can now show off your late mother’s solid oak dining room table that’s been stowed in a storage facility or buy that leather couch you fell in love with. Unfortunately, your dream can become a nightmare if you haven’t taken the dimensions of rooms or entryways into account. Here are 5 methods you can use to ensure your move is seamless and your rooms are set up to your satisfaction:
Find a professional mover as soon as possible.
A key indicator of the quality of a moving company is the number of questions they ask. knows that the more information they have up front, the greater the chance of the quotation being accurate and the move going smoothly. All Jersey Moving & Storage offers an in home estimate or a comprehensive online estimate toolto ensure there are no hidden surprises – on either side. We have the experience to know if we’ll need to dismantle a piece of furniture, remove the feet or even a door to get the furniture into the room and set up as quickly as possible so you can feel settled.
Buy furniture from a specialized manufacturer.
Consider purchasing new sofas or love seats from a company that allows you to design your own configuration. They’ll provide you with dimensions and illustrate the many ways your furniture can be arranged in the room. Since downtown condos have become popular with millennials and older people downsizing, many companies now offer smaller “condo sofas” or ingenious multi-purpose pieces that can be sofas by day and beds at night.
Don’t plan a do it yourself move.
Moving is stressful enough without realising when it’s too late that you’ll have to a heavy dresser up a flight of stairs or that your king size bed doesn’t fit in your room. You could also be risking damage to the floors or walls at your old and new homes or injuries to your back. People on a tight budget often try to save money by renting a van and asking friends to help without thinking of the costs of forfeiting a deposit because of damages, missing work or breaking possessions. Some even end up abandoning items!
