Residential Moving Doesn’t Have to Be a Hassle

Whether it’s your first move or you’ve moved so much you consider yourself a professional mover there are ways that you can make residential moving easier. Moving is a great opportunity to purge items that fit your lifestyle anymore and give your style a makeover. Residential moving can be a hassle, but it doesn’t need to be. Use these tips to make your next move smooth and stress free.

Get Help

Moving an entire household is a big job. Instead of stressing yourself out wondering how you’re going to get it all done hire a professional moving company. Professional movers know all the tips and tricks to keep your items safe and make sure they arrive at your new home undamaged. Get a quote from a mover for packing and unpacking service as well as the estimate for the move. Hiring professionals may cost more than doing it yourself but you’ll save yourself a lot of time and hassle.

Pack in Stages

It’s very overwhelming to start packing up your entire household. Especially if you have kids. So make a plan and start packing in stages. Go room by room and make an inventory list of all the items in that room. Then buy plenty of moving boxes in different sizes. Start packing up the room. When that room is finished then go to another room. Start with the rooms that contain items you don’t use every day. The items that you use the most like kitchen items should be the last ones that you pack.

Stay Organized

There are a lot of different ways that you can organize your move. But one of the best ways is to create a moving binder. This is a method that military spouses who move all the time use often. In the binder create sections for travel arrangements, lease and mortgage documents, important papers, and a section for lists and receipts. That way you can keep everything that you need for the move at your fingertips.

Work With Your Movers

A professional moving company can be a great partner to have when you’re moving. Communicate with your movers and work with them to make sure your move goes smoothly. Check off items on your inventory list as the movers load them and unload them. They will be happy to stay in touch with you during the packing and moving process. Working together your move will be quick and efficient.
