Make A Plan & Don’t Procrastinate

When staring at a household full of items, the idea of packing up each and every thing throughout every single room can feel overwhelming. That’s why it’s important to make a plan! You can start packing early, making the task less tedious and easier to handle. Think of things that you don’t need access to on a regular basis and start with those. Once you get going, we’re certain the job will look much more doable!

All too often, we hear of stressed out, frantic homeowners struggling to get the job done because they wait until the last minute. Don’t let a big move take over everything! Start as early as you can, and you’ll feel prepared and ready to go by the time moving day comes around. It’s an important step and one you definitely won’t regret.

Go Room By Room

When packing, it’s always best to go room by room, rather than throwing a bunch of items from various locations into the same box. Once a box is full, be sure to label it appropriately, so you know exactly where it is going to go in your new house. This makes both packing and unpacking a whole lot easier, and you won’t be left unable to find various items that you might up needing sooner than expected.

Pack Strategically

Consider what you’re packing up before just throwing everything into the box or moving container. Breakable items, such as dishware, mirrors, and the like should all be properly wrapped and stored tightly to ensure they don’t break throughout the transit process. Also, be sure to stack boxes with heavier items near the bottom and in the back of the container, and put your television and other electronics near the back, as well, to ensure less chance of them breaking.

It’s also wise to take advantage of any empty space throughout your belongings. Trash cans, refrigerators, dresser drawers, and similar items all have extra space for you to pack blankets, towels, and all types of knick-knacks. You’ll be amazed at all the room you save by getting these smaller items stashed away!

Summer Moving Tips

If you’re moving this summer, you likely have a long to-do list planned for the next few months. We are here to provide some tips for packing and staying on top of it all! Check them out below, then learn more about how The Mobile Attic can help you out with your next move!

Staying Ahead Of The Game

Summer is the most popular moving time. This means you’ll want to be sure you book a moving company well in advance. Slots fill up fast, so getting this step checked off your list early is the way to go! Not only will it be one more task done, but you’ll have peace of mind knowing you won’t need to scramble to find services at the last minute.

On that same note, you’ll want to start packing as much stuff as you can early on. Closets, back rooms, and other areas that see little use are always good places to start. You likely won’t need items in these locations for quite some time. So, having them stashed away early won’t be a problem. In addition, you will have part of your packing already done!

This will also give you the chance to look through your home and find anything you may want to sell or donate before leaving. Getting rid of anything you don’t need will make your entire move a lot less stressful. Also, you’ll be happy you did it when the time comes to unpack everything.

Do Some Research

Make sure you look into all of the companies you’ll need to be in contact with before your move is over. Hiring a moving company is obviously a priority, but it’s a good idea to check out places that offer dumpster rentals, carpet cleaning, big appliance removal, and similar services, as well. You’ll also want to take some time to compare quotes between companies and look at their individual policies. Find a place that works best for your specific needs and that you can afford. Moving is stressful and getting these things out of the way ahead of time will help keep you sane as big day gets closer and closer.

Be Prepared!

When you move in the summer, temperatures will likely be high. This means that you, the movers, and anyone else who comes to help will be sweating! Stay stocked on water and snacks, so that everyone has the energy to keep going all day long. Also, make sure any items you’ll need immediate access to are close by at all times. Some of these may include toilet paper, kitchen utensils, paper plates, a flashlight, and more – make a list ahead of time, so you are ready to go no matter what!
