- 1Get organized.
The key to a smooth and successful move is preparation. Taking the time to plan ahead will help you have a stress free move, allowing you to truly enjoy the big day.
Weeks before you begin packing, take the time to organize and clean out areas in your home such as closets, the attic, and basement. Consider having a yard sale or donate items you don’t want to keep.
Pack an overnight bag containing all the essentials. You’ll want easy access to a change of clothes, toiletries, phone charger….etc.
Consider packing the items you will need first in a clear plastic bin. This should include things like paper towels, trash bags, a few eating utensils, toilet paper, tools, box cutter, and power stripes.
Label your boxes with what room they are going into. If you unpack by room, the unpacking process will feel more manageable.
Supplies can be costly. Hiring a professional moving company can save you time and money. Including supplies in your quote will ensure you get exactly what you need, nothing more, nothing less.
- 4Last In, First Out.
Be sure to tell your movers what items you want in your new home first. They will place those boxes on the truck last, ensuring they are in your home first.
