If you’re moving a small amount of items across town, or even across the country, don’t let the size of your belongings lull you into a false sense that the entire move will be easy and stress free. In many cases, a small move can be just as stressful as a large one so don’t discount the amount of leg work you need to do prior to the move to ensure a smooth relocation to your new home. At Capitol Moving & Storage we’ve been helping individuals and businesses move for decades and in this time we’ve developed a few pointers to ensure your last minute “small” move doesn’t turn into a disaster.
Keys to a Stress Free Move Regardless of Size
Below are a few tips to ensure your next move goes as planned, regardless of size.
Organization is extremely key when it comes to an efficient move. Be sure to label boxes with details to ensure you know what’s where when you arrive at your new home and begin to unpack. Also keep a calendar close at all times to ensure that all of the important dates related to your move are properly tracked. Finally, be sure to setup your forwarding address and turn off utilities to avoid additional expenses after the move.
Pack a Bag of Essentials
Individuals will often forget to separate a bag of essentials such as toiletries, a change of clothes and bedding. Without this bag you’ll be scrambling in your new home just to be able to brush your teeth and lay your head down for the night after a long and stressful day.
Get Rid of Items You Don’t Need
Before moving be sure that you go through all of your belongings and get rid of any items that you’re likely not going to use in your new home. If you haven’t used an item in several months, you should seriously ask yourself whether you need to move it to your new home. By getting rid of items that you’ll never use you can significantly cut down on the number of boxes you’ll have to move.
Hire an Experienced and Licensed Moving Company
While you can most definitely give a DIY move a try, chances are that you’ll be happier hiring a team of experienced movers instead. A professional moving company will be with you throughout the entire process to ensure that you’re satisfied.
