Downsizing to a Condo: Tips and Considerations to Help You Move
Many people make the decision to downsize from a house to a condo because they don’t need as much space as they used to. This is most likely due to children moving out, or maybe you’re just tired of the upkeep. Whatever the reason, many people find the process of downsizing a bit overwhelming.
You can make the transition as smooth as possible for yourself by following some of the tips in this guide.
Get Rid Of The Things You No Longer Need
It’s time to Marie Kondo your house before you move into your condo. It might not look like you’ve accumulated a lot of stuff, but that’s only because you live in a big house. Downsizing gives you a great opportunity to also downsize your belongings. You get to hit the reset button and declutter. This is something you might have been meaning to do but never had the time. Consider donating as much as possible to local shelters. We recommend you do this as early in the process of moving as possible! Once you declutter, you’ll have less boxes to worry about during your actual move.
Rent A Storage Unit
We all have those items, maybe furniture or old family heirlooms, that we just cannot give up or give away. They have meaning to us and we want them to stay in the family for generations to come. For items like these, you can always rent a storage unit to keep them safe and sound. Most of the time, the furniture in your house probably won’t be a great fit for your new condo. You can store it until you figure out what you want to do with it. Most moving companies will help you transport these items to the storage unit of your choosing. Some, like Econo Moving & Storage in North Vancouver, have their own storage facilities you can use, which make things super convenient as you can coordinate your move within the same company.
Hire A Reputable Moving Team
Be sure to hire a team of professionals who know how to expertly take care of your things during a big move. With years of experience, professional movers know the ins and outs of downsizing and can provide you with the solutions you might need during the move. A reputable moving company can help you with packing and unpacking, general transportation and many other things.
