Few things are more hectic than moving out of your home and into a new one. As your moving day approaches, you likely have a lot of loose ends to tie up and it can be difficult to keep everything organized. This is especially true when it comes to packing and planning. As professional residential movers for St Paul and the surrounding areas, we would like to offer up some of our expertise and experience to help you keep all your ducks in a row. We have helped so many families and businesses move to new locations that we would like to share some of the tips we have come across that will aid in the process.
Declutter: Out with the Old
As you begin to pack and place all of the contents of your home into moving boxes, be sure to take a look at your items and assess whether or not they’re something you really need. Will these items bring you joy in your new home? If you’re deciding to put items into storage, are they necessary to store and keep around? Or, would someone else benefit from them more? Many local charitable organizations exist that will gladly take your gently used items to help those less fortunate. This policy will aid in your effort to minimize the volume of possessions to move, making your move easier as well as preventing clutter in your new home.
Label: What’s Where
Write on your boxes what exists within the boxes; both as far as items themselves and, if known in advance, what room they should end up in within your home. This not only helps you but your residential movers as well. Pack essential items last, allowing them to be the first thing accessed from your car or the moving truck.
List: What to do When
Make a to-do list of everything you have to do in order to prepare for your move. Include packing, change of address, hiring residential movers, etc. If you have any upcoming moving-related appointments, write them down so you can keep track of them. This is also a great way to keep track of items you will need for your new home.
Line it Up: What’s Ready to Move
Tape your boxes closed once they are completely full. Also, if weight is a question on any individual box, extra taping along the seams and openings can reinforce the box itself. Your residential movers will be able to answer any questions about weight. Be sure shake your box once it is sealed and full. Should there be movement, fill them to the brim and cushion with excessive amounts of packing paper. Then, line up all of your fully packed boxes and organize them by room and get them ready for your residential movers.
