How to Make for a Smooth Move

|

Moving can be one of the most stressful situations in life, but here at StorPlace we believe in relieving stress. Whether you are moving to a new home across town or wanting to store excess belongings, we are here to help. As a self-storage facility, we see and understand the moving process and are here to make it easier for you. Leave your worries behind with these tips on how to make for a smooth move!

BEGIN EARLY

Planning can never begin too early. As soon as you know you are moving, gathering moving supplies is a constructive first step. Some items that are crucial in the packing process are: boxes, tape, bubble wrap, moving blankets, gloves, moving labels, newsprint, and dust covers. These items can all be found at your local StorPlace and will make moving a breeze! Now that you have your moving supplies, begin the packing process immediately. Start packing items that are not essential to your everyday life. Slowly packing during commercial breaks or during free time is a great way to ensure a gradual but productive move.

ALMOST THERE

It’s almost time! Self-storage is almost always required when moving. Make sure that you have visited your local StorPlace and found the perfect storage unit for your needs. Our friendly managers will help you find exactly what you need so that your move is as smooth as possible! It is always helpful to have the space that you need ahead of time so you can gradually move into your storage unit at your own pace. Some moving situations require extra help and support. If needed, have your movers scheduled for the big day or make sure that your friends and family that are helping are free. Ensure that you have all the details about the moving trucks or the way you will be moving your items. Inform your place of work or let your babysitter know ahead of time so everything is in order. A stress-free move will take planning but will absolutely pay off in the end!

MOVING DAY

It’s finally the big day. You have already accomplished most of the move and are almost in your new place! It is vital that you remember to take the move slow and easy. Do not lift more than you can handle and remember moving dollies are a great resource to have on moving day. Start early in the morning, eat a good breakfast, and begin with the larger items, as they should go in the front of the truck. Make sure to take breaks often and drink water because the day will drain your energy. Organizing your belongings and boxes in order of room could be helpful when unloading!
