Tips for Moving into Your New Home Without Causing Damage

Moving into Your New Home Without Causing Damage

Moving into a new Schumacher Homes custom home is an exciting time and a dream come true, but it’s important to take the necessary steps to keep your belongings and your new space safe from harm resulting in nightmare horror stories. With the right approach and preparation, you can ensure that your move-in day doesn’t cause permanent damage to your new Schumacher Homes custom home.

Know the space before you move anything

Before you move any of your belongings into the house, it’s important to take a tour of each room and become familiar with the space. Make sure that you know where everything is located, and make notes about the potential obstacles in each room. Measure your furniture to make sure it will fit through doorways and hallways without damaging the walls. Use door stoppers to prevent doors from slamming into walls. This way, you’ll be able to plan the safest course of action to ensure that heavier or bulkier items are transported safely without causing permanent damage to your Schumacher Homes custom home.

Do your packing slowly, and with care

Start packing your larger items and heavier furniture as early as possible, but do not rush it. When moving each item, be sure to take the time to carefully wrap any fragile objects and items that can be damaged by scuffs or scratches. Use sturdy boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, and packing tape to protect your belongings during transport. Label each box with its contents and destination room to make unpacking easier. If possible, use furniture covers and keep tape handy in order to secure your belongings until they are ready to be transported.

Prepare for a delicate transition

Care should be taken when moving delicate furniture and decorations, which can easily be damaged during transport. Use protective furniture covers, use cardboard or mattress covers to avoid dust and dirt, and take the time to secure any breakable items with a soft blanket or special materials so they don’t move around during the transition into your new Schumacher Homes custom home. Disassemble large items such as bed frames, bookshelves, and desks to make them easier to move and less likely to be damaged. Keep screws and small parts in labeled bags and tape them to the corresponding item. If possible let your new neighbors know you are moving especially if you are using a large moving truck that would block any driveways. Doing so you will reduce any complaints the neighbors would have.

Take your time with furniture placement in each room

Give yourself enough time to properly plan the furniture placement for each room. Consider both of the long-term and short-term needs you may have when making your desired placements. Moving furniture can cause scratches and denting on floors, so take care to place large items without needing to move them too many times. Also, make sure that all of your fragile belongings are placed away from windows or glass rooms so they don’t experience any shock during sudden changes in temperature or light.

Make use of sheets and blankets to protect surfaces during transit and installation of large items such as furniture and appliances

Sheets and blankets can be an invaluable addition to your move-in plan. They provide temporary protection for door frames, walls, floors and other surfaces during the transit and placement of large items like furniture or appliances. Make sure the sheets are thick enough to prevent any damages that could happen over a shorter period of time. When using blankets, take care not to place them against anything too sharp, as they can get snagged easily on nails or uncovered corners while being moved.

By following these tips, you can help ensure that your move into your new Schumacher Homes custom home goes smoothly and without causing any damage to your property. You wouldn’t want your dream home to turn into a nightmare horror story situation.
