We understand moving can be stressful, so we create this post to help you out.

  1. Create a Timeline: Start planning your move as early as possible. A timeline can help you stay organized and ensure you don't forget any important tasks. 
  2. Declutter: Before packing, go through your belongings and declutter. Donate, sell, or discard items you no longer need or use. This will reduce the amount of stuff you have to move and make unpacking easier.
  3. Gather Packing Supplies: Stock up on packing supplies such as boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, and markers. You can often find free boxes at grocery stores, liquor stores, or through online marketplaces.
  4. Label Boxes: Clearly label each box with its contents and the room it belongs in. This will make unpacking much smoother and help movers know where to place boxes in your new home.
  5. Pack Strategically: Pack items from the same room together and keep essential items separate for easy access. Use smaller boxes for heavy items like books and larger boxes for lighter items like bedding.
  6. Protect Fragile Items: Wrap fragile items like dishes, glassware, and electronics carefully in bubble wrap or packing paper. Pack them securely in boxes and label them as fragile.
  7. Arrange for Utilities: Make arrangements to have utilities like electricity, water, gas, internet, and cable turned on in your new home before moving day.
  8. Notify Important Parties: Update your address with the post office, banks, credit card companies, insurance providers, and any other relevant parties. Also, don't forget to inform friends and family of your new address.
  9. Plan for Pets and Plants: Make arrangements for your pets and plants on moving day. Consider boarding pets or keeping them in a separate room to reduce stress, and pack plants securely for transport.
  10. Keep Essentials Handy: Pack a separate box with essentials such as toiletries, medications, snacks, and important documents. Keep this box with you during the move for easy access.
  11. Secure Valuables: Keep valuable items like jewelry, important documents, and electronics with you during the move rather than packing them with the rest of your belongings.
