Townhouses to Rent

A Successful Move to Your New Townhouse Is All in the Details


If you’re planning a move to your new home, you’re not alone. Millions of South Africans move each year, so you’re in good company. With so much on your plate, from figuring out a packing strategy to organising and moving heavy boxes, it’s far too easy to forget how small things can make a big difference during a move.


Luckily, we’ve considered all the small details that can make your move a little easier. Let’s take a look at some of the things to keep in mind when planning to move into your new townhouse. These tips can help make your move that much smoother and less stressful.


Unplug with Care


As if finding a townhouse to rent in Pretoria wasn’t tough enough, now you have to keep a mental checklist of things that need doing. However, you’ll be happy you followed this tip. Never merely pull the plug on expensive appliances and toss them in a box.


Some planning helps protect your costly gadgets, like the microwave, stereo system, TVs, and laptops. Think carefully about dismounting your beautiful flat-screen television by yourself. It may be worth getting someone experienced in doing so to take care of its dismounting and packaging.


Also, place all user manuals in a folder and keep them in the same box as the television set, so that they won’t get lost in all the shuffling. Don’t fret if they do get lost, however, as you can usually find them on the manufacturer’s website if the need arises.


Feed Yourself


This seems like a no-brainer, right? Far too often, however, people don’t even think about this aspect until it’s too late. Your family still needs to eat while moving into your new townhouse rental. Packing up the kitchen normally limits what you’re able to do in terms of cooking, but thankfully, Pretoria is known for its eateries and restaurants. This means one less thing to worry about while moving.


Keep the Essentials at Hand


After a long day of moving into your new townhouse rental and being surrounded by countless unpacked boxes, there’s nothing more you’d like to do than take a 9-year shower and pass out in bed. Only now, you realise that your toiletries are buried somewhere in the mountain of boxes spread across the house.


Avoid this rookie mistake and pack a box or two with your family’s “essentials” that you’ll need the first night you spend at the new house. These boxes contain toiletries, towels, extra clothes, any bedding and medications you need, and phone chargers that can last you up to four days. You’ll thank yourself for thinking ahead.
