Moving is one of those dreaded tasks that everyone hates to do. Fortunately, moving doesn’t have to be that hard. These tips will help make moving faster and easier.
If you have the means to do so, hiring someone to help you move can be very worth it. There are moving companies Edmond OK that will even pack and unpack for you! If you don’t need that much help, you can hire someone just to help you load and unload the heavy stuff, such as furniture.
Get Rid of Unwanted Items
Moving is hard enough without bringing things you don’t even want anymore. Go through your belongings and donate, sell or dispose of things you don’t need, so you’ll have fewer things to move.
Leave Clothes on Hangers
There’s no reason to take all of your hanging clothes out of your closet and box them up only to hang them up again. Instead, leave the clothes on the hangers and lay them flat on top of other boxes or put them on clothes rack to transport them. You can even wrap them in trash bags to make sure no clothes fall and get lost in the shuffle.
Instead of using bubble wrap or newspaper to protect all of your fragile items, try using towels, blankets and clothes. Since those things need to be packed anyway, it won’t take up any extra space, and it will keep your possessions from breaking.
Clearly labeling boxes is one of the most important things you can do while moving. That way, every box ends up in the correct room, and you don’t have to move it again later.
Moving can be easy if you pack smart and hire help when needed. Next time you move, try getting rid of unwanted items beforehand, leave your clothes on hangers, use towels to protect breakable items and clearly label your boxes.
