Profesional Moving Tips
As a professional organizer with home organization and move management experience, I offer these best tips for your next move.
This last touching trick from a professional organizer may be the most important to your sanity when you arrive at your new home. When you walk into your new kitchen, you decide where things will go before your kitchen is full of moving boxes and brown paper.
On moving day, you don’t want to look for these items, or worse, you won’t be able to find them. It is also important to label sharp objects when packing, such as some tools and power tools. You may want to consider purchasing professional packaging materials such as cardboard boxes, wrapping paper, ribbons, scissors, markers, or drawing pens; stickers for marking and a centralized folder where you can store important documents and notes about the specifics of the place where you have placed your valuables.
A helpful tip and trick for a professional moving planner are to pack a box or bag of essentials. This will include important documents and items like photos and birth certificates.
Make portable transport and storage containers like PODS your secret weapon when cleaning up before moving. Alternatively, you can use portable containers left in the driveway whenever you need them to load packed items at your own pace.
One way to keep your crates full is to use baskets, baskets, and other crates to pack and move small items.
There may be a lot of things you don’t need to throw away or reduce your belongings, make a list of what to bring and what not to bring when you move to a new place. Going through the rooms one by one and storing these items together in well-marked boxes will make life much easier on the back end.
Label each box with your own names so that your main items can be easily located when unloading and moved to the appropriate rooms accordingly. Designate the room the box will fall into and list the total contents of each box. Use colored labels to coordinate which part of the house they will be located in. This will make it easier to find your belongings in the truck and in your new home.
As you pack, move neatly stacked, numbered, and labeled boxes to the side so you can see your progress as items “disappear” and boxes fill up. Scroll backward on the timeline to include dates when movers load the truck, packers arrive, when you pack off-site, reorder, change address, additional items you sell or donate before moving, and more, leaving storage for your move. Having this to-do list at hand will allow you to manage the moving parts of your move and do it in an organized and timely manner. Plus, you can create your own moving checklist to organize all of your different weekly activities for a successful move.
Grab a large calendar and mark important daily tasks in the blank white boxes to prepare for the move. Planning your packing schedule gives you plenty of time to organize your belongings and label your boxes properly. When preparing to move, if you think you need 1 month to pack, start early.
You never know if your child will get sick, if your car will break down, or if you are too emotionally drained to complete tasks on the go.
The most important thing you can do is start early, shrink as much as possible, make an attack plan, and get help moving and delivering your car so you’re less stressed. Prepare your move in advance to avoid common setbacks, pack strategically with expert advice, and make moving a breeze with expert advice.
