While a floor plan is beneficial for those moving, what many people don’t consider is how beneficial a floor plan can be for the ones helping you move.
The last thing you want is to pay more money and experience more chaos because the professional movers you hired to help you pack and unload do not know where they will be getting boxes from and where they will be placing the boxes once you arrive at your new home. A moving plan will save you time and money by making sure everyone involved in the process is informed of what the plan is.
The best thing you can do is print out a floor plan of your new home. From there, you should be able to label what rooms are where. This is especially beneficial if you label each box with what room it is going in.
It is also beneficial in a sense that it lets you draw in where your furniture will be going, not only making it easier for the movers to know where they are taking said furniture, but for you to know ahead of time if your furniture will even fit in the room you plan on inserting it in. Because you will be able to visualize where your furniture is going, you will also know what furniture you might not want to take with you. Once you know what you won’t be keeping, you can donate it or sell it online.
Having a floor plan printed out also means you can plan the smaller things. Items such as plants, rugs, and smaller décor. Knowing where you want these smaller items will allow you to get your belongings unpacked and put in place much quicker. Items like an air fryer or silverware have an obvious home in your kitchen, but not every item is so obvious.
If you have everyone rearranging boxes as you are trying to get moved in and unpacked, not only will your stress rise, but you could easily lose very important belongings. Overall, a floor plan can only be beneficial. It will save you time and money while making the movers jobs much easier as well.
