Moving can be a stressful time for anybody. However, there are steps you can take to make a move less stressful and more organized! Consider these 3 tips for a smart move to help ensure your move is as easy as possible.

Tips for a Smart Move:

  • Getting organized - Organization is the key to a smart move. The key to being organized is starting early! The biggest mistake people make when moving is not leaving enough time to pack.  Begin by making a list of what needs to be packed in each room, such as furniture, clothes, dishes, etc. Be sure to have plenty of moving supplies: sturdy boxes, Bubble Wrap, and tape are essential to safely packing your belongings.)
  • Pack your things in an orderly manner- Pack up each room one at a time. Packing several rooms at once will only lead to chaos and will ultimately make moving more difficult. Be sure to label each box so you'll know exactly which room the boxes need to go to in once you arrive at your new home. Remember to label dishes and breakables as "fragile" to prevent damage.
  • Find great movers - Try referrals from friends and family who have recently moved, and be sure to check online review sites for other previous customer experiences.  Make sure your potential moving company is also licensed, bonded and insured.

Anyone who has ever moved knows just how stressful it can be. Try following these tips for a smart move to avoid a hectic experience!  Have a question about moving? Call us at 800- 413-4799!
