5 Tips to Make Moving Easier

Posted by Bridget Bellocq on March 4, 2020

Moving is chaotic. There’s a lot to get done, and a lot to organize. But with a little foresight, it doesn’t have to be a hectic affair.

Here are five helpful tips you can use to ease your transition from one home to another.

1. Prepare to handle with care

One key tip is to keep your packaging for fragile and expensive items, so that you have a perfect way to transport them later. No fussing with packing paper or taping up boxes — just pop your product back into its fitted compartment.

2. Make your most useful belongings accessible

The last thing you want after moving into a new place is to have to dig through a jumble of belongings to find the stuff you need right away, such as clothes or cookware. So when packing, make sure you tuck away your home essentials somewhere easily accessible. A folding table that you can pop up to eat on or use a computer is awesome to have at your disposal — disassembled TV wall unit, not so much.

3. What goes up must come down

When planning your move, don’t forget about the art and accessories adorning your walls! When taking down pictures or hooks hung up with poster putty or tape, be sure to pull them off slowly. And when you’re putting them back up in your new place, inexpensive, versatile command strips are your friend. We like to use 3M Command Adhesive strips.

4. Check in with your insurance agent

Before you start moving, call up your insurance agent and ask about how to insure your valuables for transport. You may want to verify or change your plan, particularly if you will be working with a moving company. This is also a good time to help your agent change your address, and to discuss the best insurance plan for your new home.

5. Update your address info

You don’t want important documents to end up in the wrong place, so update your billing and mailing address for any and all services. Having your new address saved in a document to copy and paste over makes it easy. And of course, put home services on hold during the moving process.
