Divorces, failed relationships, torn families, and terminations are among the most popular reasons for people to get up and move. Picking up the pieces of your life and starting over can seem daunting, and not knowing where to begin does not help. Start small, and focus your efforts on packing. Pack right, and take that first step toward a clean slate. How?
Plan, and Pack, Ahead
Start packing months ahead of time. Pack one or two boxes a night. Do not skip a night (and especially do not skip several nights), and you will thank yourself for it.
Stop Being Such a Pack Rat
Do you watch the popular television series “Hoarders?” You will be all too familiar with it if you end up featured on the next show. Get rid of things you are no longer using. Earn some moving money by holding a garage sale, or feel better about yourself and donate used clothing and appliances to charity.
Organization is always key. Stop fighting it, and keep your boxes and belongings well organized. Label all boxes, and make sure to pay careful attention to fragile items. These boxes should clearly be marked “Fragile,” eliminating any confusion whatsoever. Want an easy tip to help movers and save a marker or two? Purchase solid color stickers from the dollar store. Stick red, circular stickers to all of your kitchen items and boxes and, when you arrive in your new home, stick a red sticker on the kitchen door. Color code the rest of your boxes the same way.
Make Sure Your Boxes End Up in the Right Hands
Ask friends and family for recommendations and personal experiences with long distance movers. Ask friends about stationary and portable storage, or pods, too. Get the scoop from someone you can trust, and know that the boxes you took such time and care to pack end up in the right places, and in the right hands.
