When it comes time to move again, one of the most challenging parts of the entire process is finding the right movers. Many times, this is due to the fact that some movers simply do not stick to their word. Whether this is in regard to the time that was scheduled and agreed upon or simply stating they no longer have room or the capability to take on your job anymore. Whatever the case is, we simple will not allow it. Instead, our team of experts here at 5 Star Moving and storage will work hard to give you the resources and attention you need to be prepared for every aspect of your move. With that being said, what are some ways you can prepare to help our movers do the best job for you? In this article, we will be going over every tip to help get the job done as smoothly and efficiently as possible as well as why you should consider choosing our team here at 5 Star Moving and Storage.
Preparing for your move:
In order to create the smoothest transition for everyone involved in this moving process, it is important to go over these 4 key steps:
Step 1: Decluttering your stuff
First and foremost, have you gone through all of your things yet? When it comes time to move, this is usually a perfect opportunity to go through all of your belongings in order to see what needs to be kept and what may have served its purpose. Basically what we are trying to say is that it might be time to get rid of a few things that no longer serve you – or at least will no longer work as efficiently in your new space. We all have a few items that we simply cannot get rid of and of course we understand that. However, we highly recommend taking the time to efficiently go through your belongings in order to decide what should stay behind and what should come with you during the move. This will not only save you time and money, but it will also help our movers move quickly and efficiently as well as lead to an opportunity of a less cluttered home in the future.
Step 2: Starting the packing process
Many moving companies will often advise that you start the packing process and prepare for the big move at least a couple of months in advance. If you plan on doing your own packing, it is important to understand your time throughout the process. Of course, you want to make sure you even have time to pack up all of your belongings. Therefore, it is crucial that you plan ahead and get this done sooner than later. Again, this will only make the moving process that much easier for both you and the movers.
Step 3: Packing in the correct order
If you do in fact decide to start the packing process early – as we highly recommend doing so – then it is important to make sure you are packing your belongings in the correct order. A few tips for how to pack in the best order possible include:
- start by packing up the clothes you use less frequently first. This typically refers to any off-season clothing or items you do not use on a daily basis.
- pack up any extra decorations or items that are not essential in your current living space.
- save all of your essentials for last as you may need them throughout or shortly before the moving process begins.
