Tips to ensure moving day goes smoothly

Over 35 million people moved in the United States last year, according to US Department of Transportation statistics.  Although making a move to somewhere new can be a thrilling experience, it can also cause a lot of headaches as the result of the amount of work involved, especially with regard to packing and unpacking your entire household belongings; however, organization and careful planning can make your move less stressful and a lot more fun.

High-caliber products always yield the greatest results in the long run and it therefore is a good idea to choose the best-quality packing supplies to save you money, time and bother during the process of relocation.  You should not take any risks when it comes to financially and sentimentally valuable items and should use sturdy, clean and new boxes rather than old ones that may not be up to the task.  You should also make sure that you have a wide variety of boxes of different sizes to hand.

Unnecessary stress and wasted time can be caused by something as simple as the tape end on your packing tape being lost when you are sealing boxes; therefore, it is a good idea to choose a high-quality packing tape.

You can also save time and hassle by getting organized at each end of the move.  Create a survival kit of vital items you will need straight away in your new home in order to avoid having to unpack all your items at once.
