1. Get a Good Team of Movers
One of the best things you can do is hire a competent moving company Too often, people put off hiring movers until it’s almost too late.
You want to be sure that you are working with a company that you can trust. The movers with the best reputation are often in high demand, and you’ll have to plan ahead.
Be willing to put in the time and effort to hire the right company Interview companies over the phone if you can as well. Once you’ve found movers you trust, book them for your dates and cross that off your moving into a new house checklist.
2. Collect Materials
One of the worst things to do in a move is run out of boxes or packing tape or another crucial moving supply. Always try to oversupply your move, that way you can be sure you’ll have enough material.
You know you’ll need boxes of a variety of shapes and sizes. You’re going to want to stock up on packing tape as well as bubble wrap for those fragile items.
3. Take it One Room at a Time
Trying to pack an entire house is a huge undertaking so you’ll want to take it one room at a time. Each room should be separated on your checklist.
Take this chance to get rid of some of the items that you don’t really need. All those years of throwing things in the closet allow unnecessary items to pile up.
Chances are you don’t really need everything that’s in your house so moving is a great time to examine everything you own.
