Moving Advice: A Few Steps Closer To A New Home🏡
No matter how many times you do it, moving doesn’t really get any easier. The concept of packing up everything you own into tidy boxes can be intimidating.
Unless you have great friends and family with large SUVs, most people have to hire professional movers. That investment alone can be a huge relief, but there’s still the packing and unpacking.
1. Pack little-used items far in advance. Don’t wait to start packing. Start packing largely unused items roughly two months away from the moving date. Take care of seasonal decorations, clothes that aren’t being worn, books, guest room contents and anything else that can sit quietly without being missed for a little while. Label every box by its room or contents, and put things from a certain room in the same box.
2. Boxes.📦 You’ll need LOTS of boxes–probably more boxes than you think, and having enough boxes will make your life easier! Have about 10 boxes set aside to use for last minute items on moving day, such as bedding, clothing, and cleaning supplies. You’ll need strong plastic packing tape to close up the boxes securely. Use unprinted newsprint (newspaper can stain your items) or packing paper or bubble wrap to wrap and cushion household good.
3. Make sure the moving estimate includes everything. A small oversight on the number of boxes, rooms or furniture that needs assembling could lead to additional charges. Moving day will present enough headaches, and the professionals you hire shouldn’t add to them.
