Moving is stressful and filled with emotions because not only are you going to a new place, but you are going through all of your current items and deciding what is going with you, and what you no longer need anymore. Here our movers provide a few of their favorite tips for packing so that moving into your new space is a breeze.
Label Everything and Group Items Accordingly
Don’t just start tossing everything into boxes with no rhyme or reason. Make sure that you have items grouped together by room and label them. This way, when you move into your new space, you can put each box in the appropriate room, and this will save you space and time.
Start Going Through Items Ahead of Time
As soon as you know that you are moving, start going through your home and getting rid of the items that you don’t want to take with you. Movers know that this is the ideal time to de-clutter your space so that you have less stuff to take with you. Whether you are moving to a larger home or you are downsizing, you will appreciate when you move in you have your favorite possessions, and don’t have to unpack those items that sit in a drawer never to be used.
Keep the Essential Easily Accessible
The best movers know that there are certain things that you will want fast access to like the coffee maker and bathroom essentials. Have a separate box that is dedicated to those items and you can let the moving company know that they will be riding in your car so that you always know where they are. Also, if you have any items that you don’t want to travel in the moving truck like fine jewelry, then you can also put these in that box.
