How to Plan Your Next Move

As a moving company in MN, we understand how hectic things can get when you are starting to plan a move. There are a lot of decisions to make and many factors to consider. Here are a few tips on how to plan a smooth and stress-free move.

  • Stay organized with a moving folder or notebook. Keep important documents in there, so you always know where things are. You can also keep moving to do lists, business cards, contracts, important information about your moving company, new neighborhood and other pertinent items.
  • The sooner you can start downsizing your home and packing, the better. Separate your belongings into three piles: keep, donate and throw away. If you are unsure about a particular item and whether or not you want to keep it, set it aside and come back to it later.
  • Call our moving company as soon as possible. The earlier you call us, the more likely we are to be available the day you want to move.
  • Start thinking about your new home’s floor plan and try to start figuring out where all of your belongings and furniture will go. That way, you can start to determine what new items you will need to buy for your new home.
  • Set aside pajamas, a change of clothing or two, basic toiletries, paper plates, paper towels, plastic utensils and similar items. That way, the day that you move, you have all of the basics at your fingertips and you don’t have to go digging through boxes to find items that you will need just before, during and after your move.
  • Our moving company will move just about all of your belongings, but there are a few items we cannot move. For example, we will not move gasoline, oil, tires, lumber, firewood and paint. We also recommend that you move any valuable items, like legal documents, jewelry and similar things.
  • About a week or so before your move, stop buying groceries and use up what you have. That way, there is even less to move on moving day!
  • Make sure all of your moving boxes are labeled depending on what room they need to go in. That will make our job as your moving company easier.
