While moving, it is essential to remain calm and to not get into a rush. It is important to remember to take breaks often, eat a nourishing meal, and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Know exactly how much your move is going to cost so there is no unexpected expenses. During most moves, someone cannot find something important that they previously packed. It is a clever idea to keep an inventory on each item you pack and what box it is in. Remember to pack each box lightly, ask for assistance with heavier items, and to not overwork yourself.

Don’t Forget the Small Things

 

Moving can seem like a big picture event, but it is essential to remember the little things. Label each of your boxes so you can easily organize and locate your belongings. It is important to measure the clearance space in your new residence before moving in case an item or piece of furniture does not fit. Pack the least important boxes in the truck first in order to unload the more important items first. Before you move, make sure to change your address in order to receive your mail. These small details may seem unimportant but will come in handy on moving day!
