Moving Tips: Getting advice when moving for the first time

Speaking to someone more knowledgeable about a move could help.

Some people are expert movers, and they know how to do everything from when to start packing, how to do it and what to take with them or leave behind. If you're not one of these people, that's OK. There are many helpful options you can take advantage of to ensure your move goes smoothly, even if you aren't quite sure what to do.

An older family member or friend could be invaluable to the moving process. Experience is always good, and it could help you better plan your move. When speaking to those who know the process, don't be afraid to ask everything you can. The art of packing and moving may not always be perfect, but with some important coaching, it can be made easier.

Asking your moving company for advice and information could also be beneficial. Knowing the ins and outs of your contract is important, but it is equally necessary to have all of the scheduling information. Additionally, your moving company likely has tools and supplies that can help make the move easier on you and those helping you. Don't be afraid to ask about all of the options available, and ask questions to better understand what you need to do to be the most prepared you can be.

Planning your packing in advance so that you aren't swamped on the night before your moving company arrives is recommended. This will help you feel more comfortable about the situation, and stay positive about the move after you've arrived at your new residence. This will also allow you to better check that you did everything else, and aid in creating good habits for future moves.
