While it’s exciting to move, it can also be stressful and overwhelming to organize a plan that is efficient, especially with our busy and complex schedules. In this blog, we’ll go through a few tips that can make your move smoother and easier to manage. From methods to narrow down the clutter to advice that’ll help prevent mistakes, Junkaroo hopes to make your move a better experience. Here’s how!

Ask For Help

Last-minute moves can put you in a time crunch, which is exactly why you need extra hands on deck. Whether you have a couple of weeks or just a couple of days, the more help you can get – the better. We encourage you to reach out to family and friends and see if any of them are willing to help you pack boxes or load up the moving truck. When tight deadlines are established, you’ll be thankful for any help that you can get. 

If you aren’t able to find anyone that can help you with your move, you might want to consider hiring a professional to get the job done. Even though a moving company costs more, it’s still worth the peace of mind knowing that you’re not in this alone.

Take Care of Valuable & Fragile Items

One of the biggest worries when it comes to moving is the chance of damaging valuable or fragile items. We understand last-minute moves feel rushed, but you don’t want your valuables to suffer either. For that reason, it’s always good to set aside your fragile or valuable items so that they don’t end up damaged. Not only will you provide them with the attention and proper packaging that they need to make the move safely, but you can ensure they are transported in a way that prevents them from breaking.

Get Materials Early On

As soon as you know you’re moving, it’s encouraged to purchase all the materials and equipment that you’ll need to make the move possible. Some examples would be; boxes, tape, moving dollies and moving blankets. The main reason to do this is because it will take the pressure off you down the pipeline. While it may not seem like something that would make a big difference during a move, you’d be surprised just how much stress this will eliminate. Take advantage of the awesome resources out there!

Start Packing

Once you have the packing materials list checked-off, you might as well start packing everything into boxes and containers during your downtime. In reality, one of the most time-consuming parts of moving is the process of packing up an entire home. It’s surprising how long it takes to get everything in boxes, so you might as well start early and get this portion of your move out the way as soon as you possibly can.

Now that you’re all packed and ready for the move, you realize just how much junk you’ve built-up over the years. With all the junk in your garage, shed, and basement gathered in one spot, what better time to get rid of it?
