Tips For An Organized Move

How a Moving and Storage Service Can Make Your Life Easier

Studies have shown that one in five Americans move every year. This means, at one point or another, you may have to confront with the daunting process of moving. Nobody likes moving, and the main reason for that is because there are too many things to do and not enough time. So, the key to a stress-free moving project , is obviously, through organization. Whether you hire a mover or do it yourself, careful planning is the only way to succeed.

Make a Plan.

Go to your local supply store and buy yourself a moving notebook. This notebook will prove to be more useful than boxes and tape. You’ll use it to write all details about your move, including phone numbers, addresses, information about your mover, etc.

Besides the notebook, make sure you purchase a bunch of receipt envelopes. Use them as it follows:
one for all the business cards you’ll come across while haunting for a new place (realtors, moving and storage companies, mortgage agents, etc.);
one for the receipts resulting from trips to your new home;
and one for fix-up-the-old-place receipts.

Label Everything.

Surely you have a computer and a printer in your home. Now it’s time to use them for something that will prove to be extremely useful. Purchase a box of the cheapest computer labels available. Open a word editor and do whatever you have to do in order to make it print labels. You’ll need at least a hundred for each room, so make sure you purchase enough labels.

Once you have the labels, start packing. As soon as one box is ready, stick a label on each side of the box. That’s right, each side of the box has to be labeled. This way, you won’t have to move boxes around and your movers will know exactly where each box goes.

You can also leave the packing process in the hands of a reputable moving and storage service provider. A company such as Best Twins Movers Silver Springs can even provide labeled boxes, tape, or any other supply needed.
