    Below you will find some very helpful moving tips:



    1. Make a list
      Write everything down! You'll thank yourself later. Before you pack even one box, create a simple record keeping system. Create a computer-printed list of numbers with a space to write the contents. Or have a spiral-bound notebook for the job. You'll place a number on EVERY box you pack and list the contents on your list. Don't put the list down unless it's in a place you'll call Packing Central. This is where you'll find your labels, marking pens, box tape, and other supplies. When describing the box contents, be specific -- "A-F files" is better than "files", and "soup bowls," rather than "misc. kitchen."

    2. Have plenty of supplies.
      You'll need LOTS of boxes--probably more boxes than you think, and having enough boxes will make your life easier! If you buy your boxes from a moving company, you can always return unused boxes for a refund. If you got them free from the grocery, just toss any leftovers. Have about 10 boxes set aside to use for last minute items on moving day, such as bedding, clothing, and cleaning supplies. You'll need strong plastic packing tape to close up the boxes securely. Use unprinted newsprint (newspaper can stain your items) or packing paper or bubble wrap to wrap and cushion household goods. Again, you'll need lots more supplies than you think, so get extra so the packing can go smoothly. Return any unused supplies after the truck is packed.

    3. Utilize wardrobe boxes.
      These tall boxes are perfect for bulky, lightweight items such as comforters, pillows, and blankets, as well as clothes that need to remain hanging. Call your mover to ask the width of the wardrobe boxes they'll be bringing. Then measure the clothes in your closets (including coat closets) to see how many wardrobe boxes you'll need. You can also use them for closet storage boxes, shoe boxes, and other bulky items such as fabric bolts, large baskets, or gift wrap tubes. Don't make the boxes too heavy to lift, however. One mover told the story of someone who put a bowling ball in a wardrobe box! When the box was lifted off the truck the bottom gave way, sending the bowling ball on a wild ride down the ramp, across the street to the gutter, then down a hill where it finally came to rest in a roadside ditch. Someone could have really gotten hurt. Make sure to pack heavier items in small boxes and lighter items in bigger boxes. Small boxes are less likely to break and are easier to carry. Lighter items can easily be packed in a large box that’s easy to carry.

    4. Strategize wardrobe box use.
      Moving companies will be happy to deliver boxes ahead of your moving day. Or if you're doing the move yourself, get things organized as early as possible. A few days before your move, fill some sturdy handled shopping bags with bulky closet items such as shoes, sweaters, belts, and jeans. On moving day, fill the bottom of the wardrobe boxes with some of the shopping bags, and then add your hanging clothing. Pack hanging items tightly so things won't move around and fall off of hangers. Finally, cover the shoulders of your clothes (a dry cleaning bag works well), then add a few purses or sweaters on top. You'll have fewer boxes, and closet items remain together. Also, the shopping bags will make it easier to retrieve your belongings from the bottoms of a tall wardrobe box.

    5. Color coordinate.
      Designate a color for each room in the new home, such as yellow for kitchen, orange for dining room, etc. Apply colored stickers on the box near the box number. In your new home, place a matching sticker on the door to each room. The movers will know where to put everything when they arrive at the destination. It's also helpful to post a big sign on the wall in the room where you want boxes stacked, ("Boxes here please") to keep them out of furniture and traffic areas.

    6. Don’t forget the bare necessities
      Toilet paper, toiletries, snacks, soap, flashlight, screwdriver, paper towels, and cleaning supplies are just some of your regular moving needs. Don’t forget to pack them where you can get to them easily.

    7. Protect your Memories
      Before you move make sure you have your irreplaceable items safe, it may be a good idea to take them with you in your car as opposed to with the moving van. Remember they are irreplaceable.

    8. Pets don’t move with you
      They should be left with a friend during the move this way you can move with ease of mind. Animals also get confused during moving days so its recommended you don’t carry them everywhere you go.

    There are many concerns that come with relocating into a new home. Don’t compound the issue by not being properly prepared for the physical move itself. We are the elite all-inclusive resource for all your moving needs. When your personal belongings truly matter, leave it to the experts!
