Basic Moving Tips
Start planning early when moving. Establish a checklist. You build a strategy to ensure a smooth move. This is also a great way to involve the entire family in the moving process and distribute some of the responsibilities to each person in your family.
By organizing the loading and unloading of your goods, you decrease damages and injury, plus conserve your personal energy and time. A labeling system is also great for keeping your stored items identified and organized for a later date.
You can save a lot of money by packing yourself. If not done properly, however, you can actually cost yourself more money. Be sure to purchase the proper materials when packing. Also, label your boxes correctly. Check with the movers if you are going with professionals. Many will not insure boxes that you pack yourself. If you decide to pack yourself, plan on at least 5-6 weeks to pack.
