Moving Tips for Down Sizing From a Home to A Condo!

This post is provided by Kevin Skaggs.

If you have decided to downsize from a house to a condo, whether you like it or not, you are going to have to cut ties to some of your belongings. So how do you figure out what to take with you and what to get rid of? Also, what do you do with all the things you decide you no longer need?

It All Starts With The Right Moving Company

If you are moving into a condominium, you are going to want to employ the services of a moving company.  Narrow hallways, staircases and other residents are going to pose additional concerns that need to be figured out ahead of time. Using a professional moving company, such as Attention to Detail Moving, eliminates the extra worry that would otherwise be on your plate.

Review Your Wardrobe

When you own your own home, you have a basement that collects all types of things. From old clothes to furniture and everything in between, basements are important parts of a home. The biggest source of clutter in the typical American home is excess clothing. Take old clothing that does not get worn regularly and donate it to a local thrift shop and help your community.

Give Appliances And Hand-Me-Downs To Family Members

If your condo has all of its major appliances furnished, you will not need the ones you own anymore. You can either sell them or give them to family members or close friends. Lawn care items and machinery, such as lawnmowers, can also be given away or sold.

Rent A Storage Container Or Unit

Check and see if the moving company you hired also has a storage unit for moving available. This can be used to store any items that have yet to find a permanent home. It can be delivered to your new residence once arrangements have been made, or you can have it delivered to a secondary location in most cases, such as a family member's house. These storage units allow you to keep items that you do not have the ability to get rid of, without losing any of the much-needed space in your new condo.
