Moving is not an easy task, but it doesn’t have to be difficult. If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of moving on your own, then you can hire a professional mover. However, if you’re looking for ways to do as much as possible by yourself before hiring someone else or paying high prices for movers, then this blog post is for you!
Here are six simple strategies that will help prepare for a move and make things easier once the big day comes:
- Start packing
- Clean out garage, basement, closets, and shelves
- Pack up your car
- Schedule movers or pack boxes yourself if you’re not hiring professionals
- Put everything on the truck in one day using the same style of boxes as the company’r providing
- Have a clear space for unpacking on the other end
What packing plan for the move?
Start by listing all of the items that will need to be moved with room numbers or boxes they are located in so you know what needs to be packed first if you have any problems later on. Next, start packing up your car with everything from clothes and food pantry staples like rice, cereal, pasta sauce- anything that may require refrigeration should go away from the fridge as well because even though many people try not too pack their cars full when moving furniture around, you’ll make less trips and be able to maneuver better.
Once you start packing, there are some things to consider: make sure each box is labeled neatly so that anyone unboxing it knows what to pull out first; put as much as possible on the truck in one day to avoid making more trips and maneuvering furniture around; store food pantry items away from the fridge; and put as much in one box as possible to avoid making multiple trips.
Schedule a moving company or pack boxes yourself if you’re not hiring professionals, but make sure the style of box matches what they will provide – this way everything can go on one truck in one day when the time comes! Then have a clear space for unpacking by creating designated areas like sleeping quarters, living room, kitchen area so that there is some separation between getting organized before unpacking anything.
How to pack a car?
Take all of your skis, snowboards or large items out of the trunk and backseat before packing anything that will go in it. Don’t forget about little things like loose change under seats! Avoid storing perishable food near those boxes with an ice chest for perishables- but if you have any recycling bins, keep them there too so they don’t get tossed into the truck accidentally. Label each box with what is inside of it so others know where everything should be taken when unpacking on arrival because these steps are important – after all, this process should make life easier not more difficult later on!
How to choose a moving company?
You should find a moving company with a good reputation in your area. Word-of-mouth recommendations from friends, family or coworkers can be helpful, but it’s also good to do research online too.
