Hire a moving company

Take the pressure off of yourself and hire a moving company to do the heavy lifting…literally. Hiring a moving company comes with a ton of perks! Their services typically include wrapping all of your furniture in plastic, loading and packing items, ensuring no items get damaged, placing furniture and other items in the most efficient and desired spaces and taking inventory of everything to make sure nothing is left behind or lost during the move. 

Declutter, sort and organize

When moving and packing it’s inevitable that you will discover items that you no longer want. This is a good time to declutter your space and ensure you move with things you only want to take! The best way to do this is to make three piles: one to sell; one to donate and one to toss. This process can help downsize the number of unnecessary items you have and make sure your move is clutter-free. Moving is expensive, so don’t waste space with items you used once 10 years ago.

Find out how many boxes you’ll need

You can never have too many boxes! Well, you probably can, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Calculating the number of boxes you need prior to moving will save you the headache of desperately trying to find boxes and containers to pack last-minute items in. To figure out how many boxes you need, you first need to take into account how many boxes or containers you already have. If you need more boxes, good places to get some for free include grocery and office supply stores. If buying boxes is a necessity, your moving company should be able to provide them. Use containers you already have such as hampers, suitcases, bags and trashcans to transport items and save space.
