Moving? 3 Tips for Packing, Moving, and Storing Efficiently

Real Estate Leave a Comment

It is well known that moving can be one of the more stressful undertakings in a persons life, and yet—it is becoming more and more common. The average person will move nearly twelve times in his or her lifetime! In the real estate industry we work with people undergoing that process, which is often accompanied by higher levels of anxiety. Since moving can be so intense, it’s a good idea to make yourself as prepared as possible.

Here are a few things to consider:

1. Relocating to Boise? Make your cross-country move simple.

Most of us have moved around apartments in our early twenties, often only just a few blocks. However, moving from one state to another requires a bit more foresight. Reserve services for packing, shipping and storing belongings well in advance so you’re not out of luck when you’re really in need. Long-distance moves are more common in the summer, so if you’re planning during those months, get planning sooner rather than later.

2. Make the day of your move as hassle-free as possible.

Whether you’re sizing up from one house to another or crossing state lines, making the day of your move as hassle-free as possible is always going to benefit you. Create a sequential moving-list, so you move systematically as opposed to running from room to room. Move things like books, kitchen gear, and linens first, and always save the more fragile items to load last.

3. Don’t move alone!

If you hire movers the day of your move (which we highly recommend), you might wonder how involved you should get the day-of. Don’t worry, the best movers know precisely what they’re doing (after all, they do it often!) and they’ll be able to guide you through the process from loading and unloading to maneuvering the awkwardly shaped furniture effortlessly out of your home!

Though moving is stressful, with the right attitude and proper planning, your moving day can be much more enjoyable.
