No matter what, moving out quickly will keep the whole operation efficient and get you moved in and ready to start setting up your new place in a timely manner– and who doesn’t want to begin hanging curtains and arranging furniture as soon as possible?
Here are three tips that will make moving out go much faster:
- Start Packing Early
You may not think it matters how early you start packing as long as everything is ready to go by moving day, and to an extent that’s true. However, packing up early will give you ample time to go through your belongings and get rid of excess stuff you never use or don’t need.
It doesn’t make sense to move more than you have to, so taking time to downsize will speed up the whole moving process. Packing early will also help you keep things organized and stress-free.
- Stay Organized
A systematic packing process can greatly increase your efficiency on moving day. Organize all of your boxes by room and make sure you know what’s in each one. You can label the boxes with all of the items that are in them, number the boxes and keep a list of items separately, or even take pictures of everything that’s going into each box.
- Prepare Everything the Night Before
You shouldn’t have anything to do on moving day but move. That means everything from cleaning out the fridge, to repairing the holes in your walls, to packing up every last toiletry should be done the night before.
Keep some items that you’ll need that night or the next morning in a small suitcase or tote, and put everything else in its box. You should also confirm your truck rental and make sure your friends know what time to head over the next day.
