Moving Hacks

Many websites have lengthy lists for making your move smooth – but here are some tips to save you time and money!

Pack your dishes and breakables in your clothing to save on bubble wrap and padding
Keep Ziploc bags handy for screws and hardware after items are taken apart. Be sure to label the bags with the contents!
Ask your local liquor or grocery store for extra boxes so you don’t have to buy them.
If you are relying on friends and family to help with your move, be courteous and give them as much notice as possible. Know what tasks you will need help with and ask the right people. And provide pizzas and soda!

Use small boxes for heavy items. Don’t struggle with a box of books that you cannot lift.

Top 5 Tips: Moving in a Hurry

Move one room at a time. This will help you keep focus as well as help you keep your items together, which makes the unpacking process much faster! Set goals with how much time you want to take to complete each room. Don’t think about moving on to the next room until the previous one is completely finished.

Organize and label correctly-don’t start putting random items in random boxes. Ensure the box with kitchen appliances is actually kitchen appliances!

Have designated donation and trash piles. At the end of your packing, make a trip to the donation center or the dump.

Put on your favorite music and make the experience as fun as possible.

If you become overwhelmed, call in your posse whether they be friends, family, or a moving company.
