Organizing anything can seem hard. If you are moving it can seem whole house hard. Moving all of your belongings is a cumbersome task, but if you organize everything you can make it a lot easier on yourself.
I have put together a short quiz that will help you see what your understanding of moving organization is and to show you that a few preparatory steps can save you loads of time. See how you do with the quiz?
1. What is the best way to organize your things?
a. by color
b. by size
c. by shape
d. by room
The answer is “b”. First, organizing by color or shape not help you in any way. Organizing by room appears to be a likely solution and is viable, but it is not the best solution. Organizing by separating different size things into different rooms will give you a good picture of all you own.
2. What are the different ways you can move?
a. Use your own vehicle
b. Rent a truck
c. Hire a professional moving company
d. All of the above
The answer is “d”. There are really are no restrictions on the avenue you choose to move. There are also additional service you can use like storage, trains, boats, and planes. The specific way you move will be determined by your unique situation. Do you have the physical ability to move everything? Is there enough time for you to move it all? You should come up with a set of questions that works through your scenario and that will ultimately guide you into the right decision to make.
3. Where can you find information to help you in packing and unpacking your rental truck? (Choose all that apply)
a. The police department
b. The Internet
c. A truck rental company
d. A real estate agent
In most cases, “b, c, and d” are all good choices. The police department is burdened with solving crimes and other police activities and should not be bothered with your move unless someone is doing something that my be illegal or dangerous. The Internet is the ultimate source of information and will always provide helpful tips. A truck rental company is in the business of loading and unloading trucks, so they will be able to help you. Real estate agents, although not all of them, have been involved with many moves and will be able to provide assistance.
Understanding these few questions in this quiz should give you good running room to plan you move in an organized way. This will save you money and time.
