The success of your move is very important to us. That’s why we want to share with you 10 essential moving tips for success.
1. Be Ready For The Movers
When the movers arrive, they will be ready to wrap your furniture and move everything out of your home. If you’re not ready and still have a bunch of items to pack, the process will go slow, costing more money. Make sure that before movers arrive, you’re fully ready for them.

2. Start Early
The earlier you start preparing for the move the easier it will be. It will give you time for having a moving sale, time for packing, and time to get everything else in line before the big day.
3. Keep Track Of Your Valuables
It’s very easy for small items to be misplaced during a move. Before anything happens, keep track of all your valuables and move them yourself. Consider using a safety deposit box during the months leading up to your move.
4. Schedule Your Movers Early
If you have a favorite moving company, make sure you book your move as early as you can. Depending on the time of year, sometimes movers’ schedules book up quickly and your desired move date may not be available.
5. Pack Your Boxes Correctly
Heavy items like books go into small boxes and light items like pillows and comforters go into large boxes. You don’t want to make any single box too heavy that you or the movers have trouble moving it and it becomes prone to breaking.

6. Label Your Boxes On The Sides & Top
Make sure you label your boxes with a brief description of the contents and the room it belongs to. Thoroughly labeled boxes allow the movers to know exactly which room to place each box when they are moving. It also allows you to know where items are in each box during the unpacking process.
7. Pack A Day Box Or Bag Of Essentials
This box or bag prevents you from accidentally packing important daily items like bathroom essentials, prescriptions, or a clean pair of clothes. Make sure you have a day bag to easily access these important items.

8. Keep Track Of Passports & Important Documents
Also in your day bag goes your passports, plane tickets, or other important documents YOU need in your hands and not in the moving truck in some random box.
9. Communicate Well With Your Movers
The more you convey to your movers exactly what you want, the more they’ll be able to deliver in a timely fashion. Have a good idea where you want your furniture to be placed, so the movers aren’t double and triple handling items, costing you more time and money.
10. Keep Some Cleaning Supplies Behind
When all your furniture is moved out, you’ll likely need to do a bit of sweeping, mopping, and scrubbing. Keep some basic cleaning supplies behind to do one last clean of your home.
