When planning a move, especially a long-distance one there are many different factors that can influence it. From the cost of the move and shipping time. Many decisions need to be made especially in the beginning that will be a key factor later on. One of those decisions is your packing. Will you be ready when furniture movers Los Angeles arrive? Is your furniture worth moving?
Decluttering is priority
When you decide on a moving date all the other plans should fall into place. And your main priority should be packing. Making a packing plan is important. But before that, you need to declutter. Yes, it doesn’t sound that important but later on, you will realize, how helpful it is. Being surrounded by unnecessary furniture and items will not only make it harder to pack but will also increase the cost of moving. On the other note is your furniture worth moving at all? Some of it, yes, but some is better sold or donated to The Furniture Bank. But how do you decide what furniture is or isn’t worth moving?
How hard is it for packing and transportation?
If you are for example moving to Seattle from Los Angeles the move is not a short one. Moving in more than one trip from your old house to your new one is costly and not efficient. So making sure that you moved everything in one trip is the best. For the furniture that cant be taken apart and is too heavy and takes too much space, it’s best to leave it. Also if while you inspect your furniture you happen to find some is damaged it’s best to leave it. When wondering if your furniture is worth moving consider the cost of new items as well.
Sentimental value and cost
Is your furniture worth moving? Well, how expensive is it? Is it a limited edition or from a famous designer? Maybe it was made by someone special to you or was owned by a loved one. However, you look at it, if it’s something that is sentimental or if its cost was big when you bought it, it is worth keeping. You can always store it in Dupont WA storage, and pick it up later.
Old vs new
When finally come to a conclusion and know if your furniture is worth moving make an old vs new comparison. Make a shopping list for new furniture. Make sure all the old furniture size matches the available space in your new home. If you are working with professional movers Los Angeles, you can ask them to give you estimates.
