Moving is always a stressful event, even if you are looking forward to this move. However, with our helpful tips, you can make this move one that is productive and that you are fully prepared for. Here at Excel Moving, we are here for your every move need, but we also know that there are things that you can be doing now, to make this move pain free!
Get Rid of the Clutter
This is a common tip that is given to everyone when they move. However, it is a tip that everyone needs to remember and do! The more items that you take with you, the longer the move is going to take. If you have boxes upon boxes of clothes that no longer fit, why move these? Consider donating these items to Goodwill or Salvation Army so that someone else can get some use of these, and you can decrease the number of boxes that you are moving.
Pack your own Personal Items
For many people, they pay movers to come in and pack their times for them. However, consider placing up those personal items of yours on your own. Most movers are not going to mind if you do this. In fact, many would appreciate it, that way you are certain that you are not going to be losing anything important. Personal items can include important paperwork, toiletry items, photographs or jewelry.
Have a Plan for your New Home for a Productive Move
Be sure that you have a rough idea of where items are going to be going in your new home. It makes it much easier to have movers place boxes and furniture in the rooms that they belong, rather than piling everything into one room. While this is an option, in the end, you are going to find that you end up moving these heavier items on your own. If you are paying for a moving company, why not utilize their services as best as possible? After all, that is what we are here for!
