It’s hard to imagine it now, but there can be so much clutter when you start moving out of your home. Moving is a process that many people dread, and the idea of all that junk can seem overwhelming! Don’t worry though, we’ve compiled a list of 11 tips for simplifying the process and making it as easy as possible. Moving doesn’t have to be difficult – read on for some great advice on making it simple!
Get A Team To Help You:
Moving is not a one-person job. Survey the rooms in your home and ask for help from friends, family members, or professional movers to get it done faster! Feel free to ask for help with the packing/unpacking and sorting tasks as well. Moving can feel daunting, so don’t forget to take any offers of assistance that come your way! The more people you have helping you pack up, the less you can do by yourself later on in the process. It’s also a great idea because it cuts down on the cost if someone else does some work for you.
Get Your Belongings Ready:
If possible, start preparing items beforehand or at least make them easily accessible when moving day arrives- like making boxes ahead of time and labeling what goes where; separating clothes into piles (linen, clothing); dividing things into categories such as electronics; assembling furniture.
Create A List:
Having a list of what you are going to take with you will make sure that nothing gets left behind on accident. Putting together this list can be an overwhelming task, but it’s much easier to pack up everything quickly once completed.
Moving is always a time-consuming process, and it can be even more complicated if you don’t have the necessary equipment to do so. When moving, make sure that you’re bringing things such as tape, bubble wrap, plastic bags (for fragile items), markers for labeling boxes, and furniture dollies just in case you have large items to move.
Label your boxes clearly with what’s inside them, or use zip lock bags for sensitive materials like food. Labeling all of your furniture will help to avoid confusion when unpacking everything. It also saves some space by allowing you to stack similar pieces against one another.
Get rid of anything unnecessary before packing up. Moving is already stressful, so don’t add to it by going over your stuff and tossing things that you no longer need or want.
Take Moving Day Off:
It’s a good idea to find someone local who can take care of your pets on moving day. This will give you peace of mind that they’re being well cared for and won’t be adding stress at the last minute. It may also save them some grief by avoiding unfamiliar environments while you’re gone as well.
Start Moving Early:
Moving is easier than packing up, so start earlier in order to finish sooner! Moving companies often offer deals if you book early enough, so call around now to get quotes or ask friends what their experiences were like with various companies before deciding which one would work best for your situation.
Invest In Extra Moving Supplies:
If one item goes missing while moving, it can throw off everything else because they’re all labeled together. Packing tape is always a good purchase because some brands break more easily than others, and electrical tape for sealing boxes shut. You can also rent moving supplies such as boxes, trucks, etc.
Pack Moving Boxes Professionally:
Use a box cutter to slice open the top of your boxes and remove all the tape so it can be easily opened in case any items break. Label each box with a number or letter to make unpacking easier when you get there! Keep one stack for packing glassware, another for kitchen utensils, etc.
Store Items You Won’t Use Regularly In Storage:
If you’re storing things like Christmas decorations that are only used once every year, they should stay at storage facilities where everything is taken care of, such as regular pest control services. But if something is needed more often than not (like seasonal clothing), it’s best to pack them.
