Tips To Make Your Move Easier

Moving can be a stressful time, however, there are several things that you can do to make your move a smooth one.  If you know that you’re moving ahead of time, it’s a good idea to start packing as early as possible.  Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day and, unless you have to be out in a hurry, it’s better to take your time and remember every little detail now than to find yourself with the moving blues later.

A Little Goes A Long Way

If at all possible, pace yourself when packing.  It’s better to pack a little at a time and make sure that nothing is forgotten than to hurry and try to get everything done within a day or two.  It’s easy to forget to have your address changed, turn off your phone, internet, water and/or cable service, so take the time to make sure every little detail is ironed out now so that you can enjoy your new home later.

Have A Moving Sale

Get rid of everything that you don’t need by having a moving sale.  If you haven’t used it within a year, sell it.  Otherwise, you will just end up with the same clutter in your new house as you’ve had in the one you’re leaving behind.  Plus, the more you sell, the less you will have to pack and move.  Not to mention, moving is expensive and there’s nothing wrong with earning a few extra bucks whenever possible.

Create A Packing List

It will help you to remember things much easier by writing them down on paper as they come to mind.  A packing list can act as a shopping list, which will remind you of the things that you need to remember.

Pack Lightly

Moving day is hard enough, so don’t make it any worse by loading down your arms with too much weight.  If you pack lightly, it may cost you a little more footwork, but your body will thank you at the end of the day.

Pack Smart

Because of their design, boxes are easier to carry and provide an effective way to keep everything stored safely in its place.  Rather than just piling everything into the car or U-Haul and hoping for the best, take the time to pack everything carefully (especially breakables) inside of a box.  What will not fit, such as furniture and other household essentials, should be tied down and placed in a moving truck.  Furniture pads are also a good idea to prevent damage during the move.  Make sure you label each box with the contents of each box along with the room it will go in at the new home.  This will make unpacking more efficient and save you loads of time.
