A lot of people in the industry will tell you that in their experience, the best way to making moving day easier is by having a plan. In this plan you should determine what you need to get done to facilitate things when the big day comes. Here is how to make things easier before moving day. Follow our lead and you won’t have anything to worry about.
Sort through your belongings
If you want to make things easier for moving day, then you should go around your home and get rid of all of the extra fluff that just isn’t necessary. We are talking about extra furniture, lampshades, toys, decorations and materials. Have a big yard sale, give them to friends, put stuff on Craigslist or Facebook. Do what you have to do to get rid of things that you can now. Liquidate it and turn it in to something that you can use, like cash.
Does it still look good on you? Does it have sentimental value? Should you save it for a Saturday night out? Chances are if you have to ask a lot of these questions, then you don’t actually need it. We can’t tell you how many times people find themselves in difficulties they could have avoided just because they have too much clothing, too many jackets, scarves, shirts, skirts and pants to pack before the truck arrives. Don’t go crazy with clothes. Donate whatever you don’t need. If you haven’t worn it in a while, get rid of it. You’ll have fewer boxes, less stress, and more time.
Make a plan
You know your house better than anyone. Even though our workers are professionals with years of experience, they still aren’t too good at mind reading. If you have things that you absolutely want to take with you, set them aside. If you have certain rooms you want emptied first, let us know. If you have special requests, then let us know right away and we will make them happen. Plans often go awry but they can still help.
Don’t let yourself get too worked up on moving day. Things are going to be just fine – especially when you are in the hands of an experienced moving company.
