5 Tips for Making the Move Across Town

Summer is upon us and that means moving season has started. Many individuals take advantage of the summer when making the move to another apartment or house. While there are many details that go into packing up your belongings and relocating, even when it is just across town, it doesn’t have to be stressful. Take a few minutes prior to the move to plan your steps and ensure success!

No matter what your plan is or how many belongings you are moving, here are some tips to keep in mind to ensure your relocation is a success.

1. Separate the times before moving into your new space and out of your old space.

If you are able to get the keys to your new house or apartment prior to the time you need to be out of your old apartment, try to secure this. Having a few extra days where you can make trips back and forth between the two spaces will take some of the pressure off the move. This will also allow you to set up your space before moving big-ticket items such as a bed or couch in to your new apartment or home.

2. Purge any items that you have not used in over a year.

This includes clothing, accessories, dishes, and house décor. Purging items that are not needed will save time during the packing and moving process. Chances are, when you move into your new establishment you will want to organize everything and get it set up, and what is the point of doing this with items you no longer need or use? Taking care of cleaning beforehand will save you both time and energy. Share these items with family, friends, or local organizations that accept donations.

3. Condense items in their current packaging.

For example, if you have your shoes hanging in a shoe rack, roll up the rack and take this on the go instead of emptying all of your shoes from the rack, packing them, and then reorganizing them when arriving at your new establishment. The same rule applies to items such as clothing. Keep all of your clothing on hangers or in dresser drawers and place bags over them for the moving process. This will ensure that your clothing stays clean. When arriving at your new house or apartment, simply unpack the items and put them in their proper place. This rule can also be applied to jewelry boxes and other organizers containing accessories.

4. Call the professionals!

Moving large items such as beds and couches can be time consuming and physically demanding. In addition to this, it can also be difficult to secure the help of family and friends when making a move. Consider contacting a moving company to help make the movie easier. They will be able to help you situate your belongings in your new house and will ensure that all of your belongings arrive safe and sound.

5. Pay attention to the rules of your new neighborhood.

When moving somewhere new, even if it is just across town, chances are that some of the rules will have changed. For example, there may be new parking regulations for street parking or an assigned parking lot for your complex. In addition to this, there may be other changes to your living arrangements such the assigned days to put your trash and recycling out. Checking with your landlord about any potential changes to be aware of will help to ease the transition.

Congratulations on finishing your move. Now it is time to unpack and organize all of your belongings and set up your new home!
