Bought a new home? Don’t really want to pay movers you can’t trust or move it all in a Uhaul by yourself? Thinking of asking your friends for help? How will you repay them? Remember you’re not in college anymore, beer and pizza won’t cut it!
Ensuring that your friends remain your friends after moving there are 2 important guidelines to keep in mind before you make the move:
This won’t be much fun for you but make sure you are ready to go the day of. Have everything packed and labeled. This will make your move more efficient in the long run and prevent any valuables from getting broken.
2. Gratitude and Appreciation
I am not saying buy them a car however, make your friends feel appreciated. They are giving up their day to help you. The least you can do is grab some breakfast to quick start your morning or a pack of water, so you can all stay hydrated.
At the end of the day, once you’re all done, don’t forget to THANK them! NOW you can take them out to dinner and say thank you or you can cook out at the new place! Lastly, don’t forget to pay it forward and return the favor when the time comes!
