Moving House and Prepping

Postby CanCricket » Sat Nov 18, 2017 10:01 pm

I'm moving to a new city in BC next month and it's surprising to me how stressful it is when I consider moving my preps and potentially getting rid of some stuff. Being in an apartment, I only have enough food & water for about 6 weeks stored (due to a lack of space) but I'm going to have to get rid of a lot of it, which is stressful. I can't move the water (moving company rules) and the canned food... well, it cheaper to buy it again at the other end rather than pay the moving costs (which are weight based). It's stressful to know that, for a period of time, I won't have the safety net that I've built up and depend upon if something bad happens. Dumping my water will be the hardest. All I can think about is... what if something happens right in the middle of my move? How far ahead can I get rid of stuff, knowing that I'll be going without but that I also need to create the space for packing and cleaning? It is not a fun thing.

Hi CanCricket, I live in southeast B.C. Whenever I'm not at home and not able to bring much water I carry a lifestraw. I also store water purification tablets and a small camping pot for boiling water in my pack when I'm outdoors. Hope this gives you some ideas to get you through your move.

Consider a storage rental for the overflow. One close by so you can access as things unfold or supplies start going down. Cheers

Cancricket. Some operational things to also consider.
Moving stuff in or out needs to be done with discretion. Dress for the area of town and match the clothing of those useing the site

Boxes...should not indicate contents.

Use a dolly to transport up the elevator., maybe put a blanket over the goods and if anyone asks, just say books, old record collection etc make sure blankets are well attached so they don’t come off when snagged.

Pick a time that is not to busy or quite. You do not want to stand out. Appear frustrated, tired and a bit grumpy. People usually leave grumpy people alone. You never want to appear nervous or in a rush
Obviously, no gun cases should ever be visible,

Draw blinds and darken room so people can’t see in from adjacent buildings.
Cheers
