Do you have moving tips?

One of the most useful tips we have for moving is to be organized. Taking a few minutes to plan your move – are you going to move room to room or sort by types of objects. Having a plan can not only help you move fast, it can help with unpacking. 

A few other tips we have are:

  • Be Prepared: Notify utilities what date to discontinue services and supply them with your new address.
  • Have Supplies ready: Make sure you have enough supplies for your pack, including tape, packing paper and various sized cartons. Ensure that you know what items should be packed in which cartons. 
  • Pack Ahead: Start by packing items you know you will not need to utilize until after the move. Running out of time?
  • Stay Organized: Create a record of what is being packed in which box and where each carton and piece of furniture belongs in your new home and always label cartons. This way when your movers unload, we can ensure that you are prepared to unpack and start living in your new home.
  • Keep Items Aside: Be sure to keep some items handy. Cleaning supplies should be readily available so you can clean prior to vacating your home. Items such as valuables, important papers, and toilet paper should be kept aside and brought to your new home with you.
  • Take a breath: Moving is exciting but it’s stressful. Plan to make it as stress-free as possible – have a parent or friend watch the kids and dogs, clear space in the yard/driveway/garage for easier moving
