Quick Tips and Tricks for Moving

Whether you are headed across the country or just down the street, moving is an overwhelming and exhausting process. Here are a few tips and tricks to help make it a little easier. 

Use A Moving Service

Before buying your own boxes be sure to ask friends, check online markets like Craiglist, and ask liquor or book stores for spare boxes. Recycling boxes is good for the environment as well as your wallet. 

Create an Organizational System

Try to stay organized by packing up your boxes. You can color-code, keep a spreadsheet of what items are in which box, or pack boxes by room. Deciding on an organizational system and sticking to it will make it easier both to pack and unpack. It will also be helpful in the event that you need to find a specific item. Instead of unpacking everything to find it, you’ll have a general idea of exactly which box you need to look in. It might take a little more effort initially, but the payoff is worth it. 

Hire a Professional Cleaner

Once you’ve finally packed up all your belongings and put them on a truck, the last thing you want to do is spend time cleaning your old house to get ready to sell or rent. Hiring a professional cleaner gives you the ability to only worry about your own things and making it safely to your next destination.
