Moving can be tough, but there are several strategies you can employ to make the process as smooth as possible. Thoughtful organization and preparation can significantly alleviate the stress associated with relocating. With these tips, you can navigate the challenges of moving with greater ease and efficiency!
MAKE A LIST
Start by creating a comprehensive moving checklist to keep track of tasks and deadlines. Make a note of what items are going to your new place, which ones are being donated, and which items are staying. One easy way to distinguish between these three is to use different colored sticky notes to help others stay on the same page as you!
SAY GOODBYE TO UNUSED STUFF
Declutter your belongings before packing, and consider donating or selling items you no longer need. Mile Zero can help by hauling away your unused items before, during, or after your move.
GET STURDY, UNIFORM PACKING SUPPLIES
When it comes to packing, use quality materials, label boxes clearly, and pack strategically to maximize space and minimize breakage. While reusing boxes can be a great way to save money, using damaged or overused boxes can put your belongings in jeopardy.
PACK THE BASICS (AND VALUABLES) YOURSELF
One of the best ways to save money when moving is to pack small items on your own. This allows our team to be quick and efficient, making the most of every trip. Always remember that moving companies are insured to move furniture and other household goods, which means your jewelry and other expensive items are safest in your car!
