Moving is hard work, no matter how organized you are, but preparation and organization will make your move a whole lot easier if you start early and approach your move with a plan. Our team at Glaser & Sons Mooving can help with your residential moving experience and help you get from point A to point B with the least disruption possible. Here are a few of our tips to help your residential moving experience go more smoothly.
- Get Organized. Weeks before you move, it’s helpful to sort through your possessions and see if there is anything you would like to sell or donate before you move. Often people have things in storage boxes that they haven’t seen for years, and when they pull them out to move, they realize they don’t want to take them to their new place. If you do this before you start packing up to move, you won’t have to make the decision while you’re busy packing. Once you’ve sorted your belongings, you’ll know that everything still in your home must be packed, and you won’t have to make tough decisions in the midst of crazy moving day. If you have any furniture you’d like to donate, we are happy to transport the furniture to Goodwill for you or donate it to a family in need.
- Pack Non-Essentials First. You can get a big jump on your packing by boxing up items that you don’t use as frequently, such as camping gear, sports equipment, Christmas decorations, etc. Anything you don’t use on a daily or weekly basis can be packed weeks in advance to make your moving day go faster. If you prefer to not do any of your packing, that’s okay too. At Glaser & Sons Mooving, we can handle your entire move from start to finish.
- Keep a Box or Suitcase of Your Essentials. There’s nothing more frustrating than sorting through hundreds of boxes looking for soap and a toothbrush so you can take a shower on your first day in your new home. Pack a suitcase for everything you will need for a few days while everything is still packed. That way, you’ll have all of your necessities within reach.
