tips for moving and packing up your home

Moving to a new home is exciting, but the packing process can be rough. There always seems to be more work than there is time to do it. Fortunately, moving houses isn’t as complex as it used to be. With so many DIY options, self-storage providers and transit companies at the push of a button, moving doesn’t have to be unenjoyable. 

To make your move easier we’ve compiled a list of our top 4 tips for moving and here they are:

Be Prepared 

The best way to reduce stress during a move is to be prepared for any situation. Having the right tools for the job helps with this. Some packing materials to keep on hand include: 

  • Specialty boxes 
  • Furniture protectors 
  • Tape 
  • Bubble wrap 
  • Scissors 
  • Box Cutter 
  • Labels 
  • Pen or marker 
  • Packing paper 

You can purchase these supplies at a local moving company, although some are household items. In place of packing paper and bubble wrap, some homeowners choose to recycle newspapers to protect belongings. 

Pack with Purpose

Making a list of what you need to pack, how you want it packed, and where it’s going (storage, charity, new house, etc.) promotes organization. Having a purpose during the packing process and taking things one step at a time will ease frazzled nerves and let you enjoy some of your move. 

Many moving professionals suggest packing each room individually and labelling as you go. This makes finding space for your boxes easier in your next home.

Don’t Put off the Packing

 Procrastinating on packing is one of the easiest things to do, but with the most detrimental effect on your overall experience. There always seems to be “tomorrow” when it comes to packing. The task seems so overwhelming that it’s impossible to tackle head-on, but this is the best way to go about it. Jumping in feet first as soon as you know a move is eminent will reduce the number of boxes left to pack closer to moving day. 

  A great way to minimize stress but still get things done is by taking it one box at a time. Every evening after work, take the time to pack one box. By the time moving day rolls around you’ll be ready to go.

Know Your Budget

Sticking to the budget is crucial to the success of a move. No matter how many tips for moving you accumulate, if you overspend, you’ll find yourself back at square one. Before you begin buying packing materials and filling boxes, consider how much you’d like to spend on your move. Budget for materials, labor, and transit. This makes it easier to compare and price match on services and materials you require.
