Moving is stressful, long process, especially if you are doing it alone.
As North Palm Beach Movers, we have been moving families for years. Our professional movers have a few tips to help you prepare for your move:
- Purge First- Packing is a lot easier when you have less to pack. Most families have an enormous excess of belongings that they don’t even touch anymore. As a general rule, if you haven’t touched it in over a year, get rid of it.
- Pack by Season- It can be hard to know where to start packing. You don’t want to pack items you may need, so start with the items you don’t. Pack all the out of season items first and then start packing up items you don’t use as frequently.
- Create an Essential Box- While packing, set aside medicine, chargers, and toiletries that you use on a daily basis. You will want to make sure you have all of these items accessible when you are in the process of moving.
- Set Aside Valuable Belongings- Be sure to pack your valuables separately so you can take them with you. Some movers won’t even move boxes that contain jewelry, cash, important papers, etc. These items are too easy to get misplaced in the hustle and bustle so it is a good idea to keep them separate.
As stressful as moving can be, it is much more manageable with the right team. Call the experts at DeVries Family Moving & Storage to learn more about our North Palm Beach moving services!
