Moving from one house to another will surely require proper planning and preparation. You would need to properly pack things and find the right house movers to take care of your stuff. If you want to avoid house moving horrors, everything should be well-planned and prepared.
First thing that you must do is to record all your stuff. This may seem to be a very tiring task but it will help you keep track on the stuff that you own. You would not want to lose any of your precious collections. Make the record as precise as possible- or else they will all end up as "Misc" stuff.
Next is to make sure that you have all the supplies that you need for packing all your household items. Check if you have enough boxes, old news papers to wrap fragile items, markers to label each box. You can also use custom gift bags to pack your niceties.
Ask your friends and family members if they can refer a trusted house mover. It is quite hard to find house mover which will take care of your stuff. As much as possible, choose one which is recommended by someone you know.
