Start Early

The key to creating a smooth transition is to start your moving preparation early. One of the most time-consuming tasks you will have during your move is packing. You will want to give yourself ample time to carefully pack your items. The last thing you want is to end up in a panicked frenzy at the end of your move, trying to throw your items quickly in boxes. You may end up with broken or damaged items when you arrive at your new home. So start early and pace yourself.

Keep Organized

It is easy for things to get jumbled when you are moving. However, things will be much easier if you do the work to organize before you get to your new home. One of our best moving tips is to keep your home organized as you start the moving process. Here are a few ways you can keep organized:

  • Properly label all boxes with the contents of the box and the room it belongs in.
  • Create a moving inventory using a spreadsheet or moving application on your phone.
  • Create your color codes to note the order of unpacking.

If you take the time and effort to make your moving process more organized, your unpacking will go much quicker. The quicker you can get settled, the faster you will feel at home.

Trim the Fat

Go through all your possessions and make some tough decisions about what you absolutely need to take with you. No one wants to take the effort to pack a bunch of items they don’t even want. The majority of professional moving companies charge by weight. By ridding yourself of unnecessary items, you will not only save money, but your new home will be much less cluttered with things you don’t use. After you single out those items you don’t need, hold a neighborhood garage sale.  A garage sale is a great way to quickly dispose of old items and can provide you with some extra money to help finance your relocation.
