Boston Movers on preparing for the big day
At Movers on the Go, we’re here to help make moving easier. Not only do we provide the services you would expect from professional Boston movers, but our team goes above and beyond to educate our customers as well. You’ll find that our articles are filled with tips and helpful information to assist in making the big day less stressful.
Here, we’re covering a few things that help people prepare for moving – and unpacking!
Leave yourself plenty of time.
If you tend to be a procrastinator, moving is not the time to let this habit shine. Leaving things until the very last minute can create a hectic, disorganized, and extremely stressful move for you and your family. Our team feels that our customers should begin packing anywhere from two to four weeks before the moving date. This timeframe allows for the elimination of items that won’t be making the move, as well as proper room-by-room packing.
Similarly, once your move is complete, remember that time is your friend. Many of us, once moved, have the desire to get things in order as quickly as possible. Instead, set realistic expectations that allow you to move in with ease. Try focusing on one room at a time, prioritizing which are used more frequently, like the kitchen.
As we briefly mentioned, not all of your items need to make the move. Although it’s sometimes hard to part with our belongings, decluttering is well worth your efforts in the long run. Not only will you be moving less, but you’ll also be unpacking less. Thus, your new home will be the fresh, clean, uncluttered space that many of us desire.
Set aside items that are usable and consider donating them to a local charity or shelter.
Labeling is your new best friend.
Now that you’ve organized and decluttered, it’s time to get packing! The best way to tackle this is by focusing (again) on one room at a time. Start with the less used spaces, spare bedroom, etc. Be sure to label your boxes! How you label is up to you. However, we suggest mapping out your upcoming environment and deciding where your items will go. By labeling your boxes with which room they will go in, you and your team of movers will have a much easier time!
