Do's while Moving HomeIf you are about to move home, then there are a few things you should know. These are not just a list you can skip-reading but some tips which will really help you have a smooth relocation. People sometimes ignore these types of lists, only to find out that the things written there were true. And we are not talking here about a childish mistake that can be repaired, but about a real moving disaster. Items can get lost, damaged; people can get hurt and all these because of poor planning. A successful relocation is not only the job of the movers; you have to do certain things as well. A successful relocation is the sum of more than two factors.  If you want to avoid a situation in which your relocation may be delayed, or your belongings damaged, then you should follow these pieces of advice: •    Begin early- You should start planning your relocation as early as you can. The recommended time is with at least two months before your actual moving day. Pack personal and household items that you will not require instantly. Also inform the service providers such as internet, electricity, bank etc that you will be moving to a new address. •    Prepare a list-You should record anything that is related to your move. It will help you a lot because everything will be organized and you won`t have problems in finding what you are looking for. You can use charts, diagrams, and tables, whatever you want. As long as everything is recorded, you are on your way to a successful relocation. •    Buy packing materials- In case that the moving company doesn’t provide you with moving materials or they are just too expensive, then you`d better start looking for some as soon as possible. Try to buy all the packing materials you want in one excursion and take particular notes of filler tapes and bubble wrap, as they tend to run out quite quickly.•    Get help- Even if you are sure you can handle everything alone, there is no fun in that. Some may say that moving is not fun at all, but if you see it as a stressing activity, it will become one, whereas if you look at it in a fun way, you will see that the level of stress will be much lower. One way of doing this is to ask your friends to give you a helping hand. Not only you will finish some of the tasks quicker, but it will also be funnier.•    Be there on time on moving day- Some people think that just because they have a company which will take care of the job, they can be late on their moving day. No, you should be on time on your moving day, so you can give the movers all the instructions they need and provide them with the conditions you want for certain items. While if you are late, you won1t really be able to do that.
