How to Get Help When Moving

Posted by Erica Snyder

Leaving the place you have grown to love is hard enough. However, sentimentality aside, it is also pretty challenging to move a whole truck of furniture, appliances and stuff to your new home alone. Asking your friends to help seems to be a good option but you know that they would not just barge in and lend a hand especially if their backs are at stake.

There will always be a way of luring your friends to helping you move. Why not hold a moving party? Rarely does a person say no to some fun and enjoyment. And perhaps, it can also make your move interesting.

The Peterson Group Bespoke Condominium and Residences, expert in providing the most suitable luxury apartment and residential to expatriates in Singapore, Jakarta, Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Hong Kong tells us how to do it:

1. Decide on the Details

In every party, you always have to prioritize the details and lay down everything necessary. In a moving party, you have to consider which aspect you need helping with. Is it with the packing? Or is it with moving all of your things to the new place? Reviewing these kinds of details helps you in determining who to invite, when the party should be and on the other information that needs to be considered.

2. Invite the Right People

There is no sense in inviting your sickly friends. If you are planning a party along with moving, make sure you invite people who are game with it and are fun to be around. They should not mind going through all your stuff or you just might find someone who have too much complaints.

3. Make Things Easier For Them

Moving party would mean that your friends both enjoy and work. Preparing for them prior to the party is a great deal of help. You can list down the specific task they are to do so everyone will have their part to play.

4. Don’t Forget to Have Fun

Although your main purpose is to move out, you also have to be careful of being too serious about it. The essence of being a party is to have fun. Don’t forget to chill out, play music, chat, take breaks and even play games.

5. Provide Food and Drinks

What is a party without food? And even if you are not hosting one and your friends are helping, providing sustenance is a must. It can be a form of bribery but they still deserve it.

All the physical pain you have to endure just because your friend is moving out but it’s also a good thing to help since it can also build camaraderie

Not all people find this fun. Party or no party, you are still going to carry other people’s stuff and its disturbing enough.

How can you finish moving out when you are also holding a party? I bet you’ll have to extend it for another day.

Hosting a party while moving out seems to be a bad idea. Why not hire a moving company instead?
