If you're moving homes, odds are you have a lot on your mind. You're trying to keep track of all your boxes, making sure the moving truck arrives at both locations on time, and focusing on getting all of your belongings to your new home in one piece. In all of this chaos, it's easy to overlook basic safety precautions. If you have a moving day coming up, read these important safety tips to make sure you and your belongings arrive safely.

Packing boxes

  • Practice good lifting technique. It has long been taught that you should "lift with your knees" when picking up heavy objects. However, if you look at the people who lift things for a living, professional weightlifters, you'll notice that they use a combination of muscles.Before lifting, test the weight of the object to see if it's feasible for you to move alone. Then make sure you can get a good grip on the box. When lifting, be sure to keep your chest facing the object and avoid twisting your back. Lift from a squatting position relying mostly on your leg muscles.It's also a good practice to stretch and warm up your back before lifting to avoid injuries.
  • Pack properly. To ensure the safety of you and your possessions during the move, be sure to use boxes that are the correct size and pack them fully. Empty space in boxes can cause them to crush one another and tip over in the moving truck, harming you or your fragile belongings.Double up on tape on the bottom of your boxes and tape a "plus" sign so that the box is reinforced fully. This will stop heavy objects from falling out of the bottom of the box and breaking, and from hurting your feet.

On the road

  • Stack smart, not higher. When stacking boxes, always put the heavier boxes on the bottom. Don't stack them too high or too close to the door of the truck. Think of stacking boxes as playing a game of Tetris--an organized stack will have much better stability than a disorganized one.
  • Test drive the route. Driving in an unfamiliar place is difficult enough without having to do it towing all of your most valued possessions. Travel the route beforehand to get a feel for the roads and for safe places to stop for gas or food.

In your new home

Once you arrive at your new home it's easy to let your guard down and start dreaming about relaxing on the sofa in your empty living room. However, you should ensure the safety of you and your belongings first.
  • Don't leave things unattended. Even if your neighborhood is a safe place you should still keep track of where your boxes are outside at all times.
  • Unpack the truck safely. If you can't reach a box, use a step ladder to get it down. If boxes are too heavy to move, use a dolly.
  • Clear the path. It's easy to lose track of objects and trip over a box in the hallway when carrying your bed frame in. Make sure you and your helpers keep the paths clear while moving.

The real estate market remains in constant flux. However, this does not necessarily mean you'll need a significant amount of time to sell your residence. Regardless of the size and quality of your home, there are many quick, easy ways to set up your residence for a quick sale, including: 1. Price your home appropriately. As a home seller, your goal is to maximize the value of your residence. Doing so, unfortunately, can be a major challenge if you fail to set realistic expectations. Getting your home appraised before you add it to the real estate market ensures you'll be able to determine the true value of your home. Furthermore, consider any recent home improvements you've completed, as these enhancements may help increase your residence's value. Also, don't forget to check out the prices of similar homes in your area. This enables you to get a better idea about the value of your residence relative to others that are available. Pricing your home often can be difficult, but those who perform plenty of research will be better equipped to set a fair price that generates interest from many prospective homebuyers. 2. Make your home easy to show. Those who only enable homebuyers to view their residences at certain times will limit their opportunities for a quick sale. Conversely, you should try to remain as flexible as possible after you add your home to the real estate market to maximize your home showings. Homebuyers likely have many great residences at their disposal. And if you turn down an opportunity to show your house to an interested homebuyer, this buyer may choose to look elsewhere for his or her dream residence. Comparatively, home sellers who maintain a clean house can make their residence easy to show at any time. In the event that a homebuyer wants to show up on short notice to view your residence, you'll be ready to depart and ensure this interested party can check out your residence without delay. 3. Ensure your home is listed in plenty of places. Your real estate agent should try to do everything he or she can to make your home an attractive commodity. As such, hiring a real estate professional who will showcase your residence to as many prospective homebuyers as possible is essential if you want a quick sale. For example, your real estate agent should have no trouble adding your house to a wide range of real estate listing websites. Social networks like Facebook also make it simple for real estate professionals to showcase your home to a broad range of prospective homebuyers. With a superior real estate agent at your disposal, you'll be able to spread the word that your home is for sale to a large group of homebuyers. Thus, you'll be better equipped to boost your chances of a fast sale, and potentially, a major bidding war among interested parties as well. Selling a home is rarely simple, but with these tips, you can improve your chances of optimizing the value of your home and selling your residence quickly.
