Preparing Your New Home
One of the things many people who move need to remember is that it is best that the place you are moving into is prepared and viewed in advance before the actual boxes and packages arrive.
Pre-viewing and planning enables one to know and plan the layout and design of the house, which will make unloading and unpacking easier, since you know which of your things will go where, and how the bedroom, for example, will look with your bed and all the other furniture pieces installed and put into their proper places.
Another advantage of preparing your new home or apartment in advance is that you get to catch any possible problems that might put a damper on your moving in. Anything to a leaky pipe to rats or cockroaches or even termites can ruin a place, so have an inspector (or exterminator, if applicable) go through the house to make sure that the place is in tip top shape before you actually move in for good.
You have to understand that planning beforehand is the key to making things much more efficient. An efficient move will allow you to get settled in faster and adjust to your new surroundings and environment faster.
