Project ''Move''

So finallly we have moved into a new apartment...

Am sharing here some truths about moving that I discovered only recently:

  • You NEVER know how much stuff you have until you move. Packing is a project by itself
  • Moving things requires BIG STRONG people to move it. Never think you can manage it yourself. If it was not for my 6.11'' cousin, we would still be 'moving' ..
  • Never estimate a person's strength from the size. My uncle's brother, who is of average height and build, together with the above mentioned cousin, could lift, with lots of effort of course, the 250 pounds heavy TV.. ufff..and we had thought we might need to call in at least 3 or 4 friends or something...
  • Rental trucks (UHauls) give better deals between Sunday to Thursday, so its wiser to move in those days in case you have a choice and more stuff to move.
  • Moving into a first floor apartment is easier than moving out of a second floor apartment.
  • At least couple of things are gonna break in the whole moving process, so there is really no use crying over it.... think of it as 'shagun' ...aur kya...
  • Telephone /cable guys work at their own times... everyone here goes by appointment, so book your appointment early if you want the services to be up early...
  • Same goes for the electricity guys too! And all these folks work ONLY Monday to Friday, so in case you are moving over the weekend, you make sure you have at least electricity the Friday before, so that you don't have to fumble around in the darkness in the new apartment.. As it is one has to jump over the things all over the place for the first few days..
  • Keeping the kitchen 'closed' is a good idea for 4 or 5 days so one can ensure a smoother move...
  • Cleaning the old apartment is a subproject of the 'Moving' project and needs its own Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.
  • Last but not the least, the next big project is on hand before you even know it, and that's the ''Project : Unpacking'' !!
