Any additional help is always welcomed when it comes time to pack up and move to a new home. And between the entire process of packing, taping, transporting and of course, bribing some friends to lend a helping hand – any extra tips to ease the process can be helpful. That’s why we created this list with some essential moving tips you need to know about.
Label Each Box with the Room It Is Destined For
If you think packing is a gruelling process, wait until it’s time to unpack! But you can save yourself much aggravation and make the unpacking process a whole lot easier by labeling boxes correctly. First of all, always use a good marker and write clearly. Label boxes according to the room that they are destined for. You can be more descriptive and list general items they contain. Do this and you will thank yourself later!
Start Packing as Early as You Can
Getting a head start on the packing process is also recommended. Avoid a situation of having to stay up into the wee hours the night before to finish packing. Clear some space in the corner of a room and begin each day by packing away items you can live without until you move.
Ensure Your New Address is Prepped and Ready
It can be easy enough to get wrapped up in the moving out process that we can forget about the moving in process. Always contact the landlord, or ensure that your new place is prepped and ready to receive the movers. That could mean reserving a parking space, reserving the elevator, or having someone on hand and ready to open the door if you’re busy cleaning up.
Overlap Dates so You Can Clean Previous Residence
When your movers come to transport all of your boxes and furniture, you don’t just get to shut the door and throw the key behind you. You need time to give the place a clean before saying your final farewell. So give yourself time by overlapping dates so that you can clean your previous residence without having to rush around to get everything done in one day.
Easing the burden of a big move all comes down to preparation, and of course, help. You can make that transition process so much easier on yourself by getting ahead of the game by starting early and keeping everything organized so that both your stuff and your new home are prepped and ready for the big moving day.
