Make A Daily Schedule

Moving day can creep up more quickly than you might realize. That’s why one of our top moving tips and tricks is to get started early on the first steps of the moving process: planning and scheduling. You’ll more than likely have to arrange your packing and other moving-related tasks around your work schedule for work or class, among other obligations. This is where you will put your organizational skills to the test! Use a calendar, and write down the specific tasks you need to complete and when. You might also consider setting reminders for each task a day before its due date to help ensure you get everything completed on time. 

Purge Your Clutter

Moving provides an excellent opportunity to purge some of your unwanted stuff. Take a long, hard look at your belongings, and think about what you don’t want to bring with you to your new home. Not only will you have less stuff to pack, but you’ll also save yourself the hassle of figuring out where to put the collected clutter in your new living space. Make three piles comprising what you’ll keep, what you’ll toss, and what you’ll donate or sell, and determine which pile each of your belongings should go to (all with a sharp eye towards the future). With clothing, a good rule of thumb is if you haven’t worn it in more than a year, it’s unlikely you’ll wear it in the future. Doing a thorough preliminary purge in anticipation of your relocation will help you feel that you’re on the right track towards completing your move.

Label Moving Boxes

Packing important items into various moving boxes, then later needing those items and not knowing where you put them, is an easy recipe for frustration during the packing process. That’s why our professional movers recommend that you keep tabs on what stuff you put where by keeping notes on what items you put into each box. Assign each of your moving boxes a number and write the number on each box using a permanent marker. Then, write the contents of each box in a notebook, along with its coordinating box number. Alternatively, you could list the contents out on the side of each box, so you’ll know just by looking at it what each box contains. You should also consider labeling your boxes based on where they should go in your new place. Simply write a destination on the outside of the box.
