How to ensure moving day runs smoothly

If you are planning to move in with your significant other the day of the move can be a very exciting experience – as long as everything goes according to plan.  On the plus side there are several tips that you can follow to ensure that the move goes as smoothly as possible.

Many couples want to move in together only to find that they have more possessions than they know what to do with.  In order to cut down on the clutter, you and your significant other need to spend a couple of days getting rid of your excess belongings prior to the move.  You should donate or sell of any possessions that you have not made use of for more than six months.

Once you have concluded purging your unnecessary belongings, you will need to decide exactly what will go into your new home.  These are not always easy decisions to make, but making a move will be a lot easier if you have made these decisions ahead of time.  To avoid arguments you should begin by making a ‘must keep’ list and then make use of your new home’s floor plan to choose where your favorite items will go.

Moving is often an expensive endeavor and you need to decide how to cope with the costs prior to the actual experience.  Once you have a plan in place, you can find packing supplies and confirm a date with your moving company. It’s a good idea to secure your moving date two months prior to the big day.
