Follow these 15 Simple Steps to Ensure a Stress-Free Move

Are you wondering how to make your upcoming move smooth and hassle-free? Look no further! Smart Penny Moving is here to provide you with the best moving tips and help you have a pleasant moving experience.

Start planning your move 6-8 weeks in advance. Create a list of priorities, important tasks, and mark them on your calendar to stay organized. Prepare your family for the moving process.

Take the opportunity to declutter and get rid of items you no longer need. Hold a garage sale or donate unwanted belongings. This will save you money and reduce the stress of moving unnecessary items.

Stick to uniform-sized moving boxes to make handling and stacking easier for the moving crew. Random-sized boxes can complicate the loading process and take up more time.

Unpacked items can prolong the moving process. Ensure everything is packed and ready to go. Miscellaneous unpacked items become time-consuming and difficult to load onto the truck.

Don't try to pack everything at once. Decide which rooms to pack first and gather packing supplies like boxes, tape, and markers. Plan to pack a specific amount each day, involving family members to make it more enjoyable.

Follow packing tips to ensure your items are properly packed. Well-organized packing reduces costs and makes the moving process more economical. Minimize miscellaneous items and pack boxes with similar items, labeling them with the corresponding room names.

Write the name of the room on the top and two sides of each box. Consider using a color-coding system with colored stickers to match boxes with specific rooms in your new home.

Ask friends or family members to look after young children and pets during the move. Keeping them safe and away from the movers' work area will make the process smoother.

Don't forget to remove items from furniture drawers before the movers arrive. This prevents damage and ensures a hassle-free moving experience.

If possible, disassemble shelving from bookcases or any other furniture with removable shelves before the movers arrive. This saves time and money during the move.

Move your vehicles out of the driveway and clear the surrounding areas. This allows the moving truck to park easily and facilitates efficient loading.

Remove any debris around the furniture and ensure there are no obstacles blocking the movers' path. Clear the areas where the movers will be working to create a smooth moving process.

Keep important documents with you during the move to save time and avoid searching for them before, during, or after the move.

Remove all valuable items, such as jewelry, coins, and currencies, from the home or areas accessible to the movers. Keep them with you or store them securely.

Inform your moving coordinator of any changes or updates to your move so that they can be prepared accordingly.

By following these steps, you can ensure a smooth and organized moving experience. Our goal at Smart Penny Moving is to make you smile and move you into your new home efficiently. When you're prepared, you save time, money, and maintain your sanity throughout the process.
