Before the Movers Show Up

Movers

Everyday movers show up at someones house to help them load up their possessions and travel to a new home. While the logistics are numerous, you can survive moving with your long distance movers. All it takes is a little organization to get past your anxiety about moving.

First, you should come up with a good plan for packing your home. That seems to be a daunting task for most families, especially when they procrastinate or are under a tight deadline. Knowing some effective strategies can make it easier for everyone. If possible, you might want to consider renting pods for storing items that will not be used at all until you reach your new destination.

Some families do not get enough boxes or containers ready at the beginning. You should give yourself some extra so that you are not scrambling mid process. It may also help to pack a box at a time to keep from getting overwhelmed. Again, start with the lower priority items to keep from disrupting your daily schedule.

As you pack each room, you should also set up some containers for items to sell or giveaway and for items that can be sent to the trash. There is no need to pack anything that you do not want to take with you. Frequently people overestimate their ability to sort through everything as they unpack so get rid of it now if possible.

Do not forget to optimize your packing strategy. As you fill boxes, you will want to stage them in a place that does not block the walkways, but that is easily accessible when it is time to load the moving truck. Placing the packed boxes together will also allow you to free up your space to continue packing the rest of your possessions.

Finally, do not forget to create a plan for the frequently used items in your home. Those items can be packed separately so that they are also available immediately when you unpack. Special or sensitive items may need to be packed in suitcases and transported separately to protect them during the process.
