If you are living in a populated state like Florida, then you can take help from a good Florida junk removal service and get your junk removed efficiently. Below are a few tips for you to get your sanity back and easily move to a new place.
1. Calm Down
First of all, you need to calm down and relax, it is not big deal and you will be able to think more clearly once you are relaxed. You can slowly pack and move all your stuff, no need to rush.
Make a list of all the things that you will need in your new home. A list will help you to keep everything in front of you and you will be focused.
3. Packing Supplies
Buy all your packing supplies and material and keep them in front of you so you can easily pack everything at your convenience.
When you are living in one place for a long time, you would accumulate a lot of junk over time which you do not need or use anymore, such as old clothes and toys of kids, broken appliances, unused machinery, extra crockery, old furniture, broken stuff and things for which you have a certain attachment. You will need to discard all the things that you do not need. You can call a Florida junk removal service for this purpose who will come and clear and dispose of all your junk in a matter of hours. You will feel a sense of relief once you have decluttered and will be able to see things with clarity.
5. Recycle and Donate
If initially, you do not want a junk removal service, you can clear the junk yourself and keep things in 4 boxes marked; Keep, Discard, Donate, Recycle. Keep the useful things with you, throw away or dispose of the things which are broken or scraps, the things which are in good condition and can be used by others should be donated in charitable centers and the items which can be recycled for the benefit of the environment should be sold to recycling companies.
6. Start One by One
Once you have sorted out all your stuff, you will need to start packing. Start with one room at a time pack everything from it. Start with the room which is mostly unused or extra.
Label and mark all the cardboard boxes and other stuff and make an inventory of each box, that what things the box contains. This way you will be sure of the stuff you have and nothing will get lost.
8. Electronic and Fragile Packing
When packing your electronics make sure to pack them in their own boxes and if you do not have those then pack them separately with their respective wires and accessories. This way when you will unpack you have everything together. Pack fragile items in one box covering with bedsheet or safety clothes so that they do not get damaged.
9. Pack Usable
You will be very tired once you have moved so pack initial stuff for usage in one carton and mark it so that you do not need to unpack all the stuff.
