However, if you’re a DIY’er, we’re still here for you! Because we love all types of movers, we’ve created this helpful list to keep you on track during your move.
Start collecting boxes when you know you’re moving.
As soon as you find out a move is happening, you’ll want to start planning. However, the details can quickly become overwhelming. Thus, taking one step at a time is imperative to keeping the stress levels at a dull roar. One of the first things you can do to prepare for your move is to collect moving boxes. With enough notice and time at your side, you can find local stores willing to provide you boxes free of charge.
Give yourself plenty of time.
A common mistake of many people is playing the time crunch game. We promise this is not a game you’ll want to play when moving. Allow yourself plenty of time for planning, scheduling, organizing, and packing. Waiting until a few weeks before will undoubtedly bring added to stress to an already potentially stressful time.
Create a schedule and stick to it.
A great way to manage a move is by creating a schedule. Again, leave yourself plenty of time and set realistic expectations. For example, one weekend set aside to tackle your kitchen. Weed out the items that don’t need to make the move and pack those that will. Once one room is completed, move onto the next. It’s always best to leave the most utilized rooms for the end.
Accept any help that is offered.
If friends or family offer to help, accept it! This is especially true if little ones running around the house. Create small lists for people to tackle and thank them with pizza!
Label or color-code your boxes.
By creating a system that works best for you, unpacking will be a breeze. Whether you label boxes by room or contents, color coordinate, or whatever other method suits you, you’ll thank yourself in the end.
Check out your local donation centers and pickup options.
Moving is one of the best times to weed through the items that have piled up over the years. Donate unused clothing or household items to local charities and donation centers. If you have furniture that is staying behind, several organizations will come to your home for pickup service.
Do your research.
Packing and unpacking are hard enough. With the help of Boston moving services, you can leave the actual move to the professionals. However, it’s crucial to do your research. Asking friends and family is always best for an honest and reliable opinion.
