Although most people intend to give enough time to planning when they are preparing for a move, for many unexpected reasons, some people are not allowed to do so. If in this case, it is good idea to think about the way in which such move would be done in a quick and efficient way. In regard to foreclosures or evictions, or sudden job transfers or losses, the following tips would help you move at a short notice.
1. Split Up if Possible.
It is kindly recommended that you should let half the family go ahead while you or one family member could stay behind to look after the house you are leaving. In some cases, it would be much easier to pack and move with fewer people in the way, in particular, it is the family with small children. If your family is just in such case, so you have better have one parent load the small children with the basic daily necessities and have them spend a week or so in a hotel room near the your new house. It would allow the other parent, and perhaps an older child or two, to have time to pack and load boxes without the hindrance of daily living getting in the way.
2. Get Organized.
When starting with packing, you should consider the careful arrangement of all the things in an organized way so as to make the best use of space in your boxes, or help you unpack with the organizational sense when you get to your new home. However if you do it in a hurry, you would not have enough time to arrange everything carefully, so in this case, you had better begin with one wall in your chosen room, label the box with the words of “kitchen, stove wall” or “bedroom, dresser wall” and start loading things into the box from that side of the room. When you look for things later, you just find out where it was stored before the move, and go for the appropriately labeled box. Although it seems to be slightly less space efficient, it is the really faster way to pack.
3. Consider Using Professional Movers.
With enough money and intent to move quickly, you might consider hiring professional movers to pack your things and move them into your new house. If your company is going to pay your relocation costs, hiring professional mover would be a nice choice, because it could save you a lot of stress. But in this case, you should supervise the movers in the way that their action would be ensured so carefully to the standard that you are expecting. If possible, take time to select a moving company according to their positive reputation or on good referrals, because better movers are qualified to do a good job and do it quickly.
