The best tip to stay organized and sane during this hectic time in your life is to create a checklist for before and after your big move! Some obvious moving tips can be overlooked so Rare Moving and Trucking is here to help give advice and make sure your move goes smoothly as possible!
Take Notes: Make note of your shipment registration number and keep it with you so in case you have questions about your shipment, you can call your movers with any questions.
Bed Ready: Designate one packing box or drawer of a dresser for sheets and towels so you won’t have to look through everything you packed on the first night in your new place. Keeping the essentials, you’ll need for that first night in one box will also help you stay organized!
Fridge: Don’t forget to clean and dry out your fridge before moving out of your current place! Put a hand full of baking soda or fresh coffee beans and place it inside the fridge to keep the interior smelling fresh.
Pack Heavy-Pack Light: Pack your heavier items in smaller boxes and lighter items in larger ones.
Give Out Your Number: Before your movers get to your destination residence, give them a phone number where you can be reached if needed. Also, it’s a safe bet to provide them with an alternative phone number just in case they can’t reach you.
Packing Plates and Records: Pack your plates and album records vertically rather than placed flat, and stacked on top of each other. This will help you save on some space and well as protect your items better.
Bare Necessities: Remember to pack all the necessities that you will need for the first couple nights at your new residence! Some items you should pack are toilet paper, paper towel, telephone, toiletries, snacks, coffee, soap, flashlight, screwdriver, pliers, paper plates, cups, utensils, a couple of pans, and cleaning supplies. Make sure these necessities are packed at the front of the moving truck so it’s one of the first boxes unloaded.
Bulbs: Make sure to unscrew your bulbs before packing your lamps!
Memorize Your New Address: You and your children should practice writing your new address on all your boxes so all of you can get acquainted with your new street and town.
Relax: Leave the moving to the professionals and relax. Look forward to the new opportunities, experience, and home! Get a good night’s rest before the pickup and delivery days and stay calm throughout this hectic process!
