Preparing for a move can be difficult and overwhelming.
There are so many things to plan for and to do before the move. It can be hard to know exactly where to start. The professional Santa Clarita movers at Farley Brothers of Lancaster have years of experience and have learned a few tips and tricks that can help you prepare for your move:
- Plan- Plan ahead
for your move. It is a good idea to
schedule your move with your mover at least a month in advance. If you are moving in summer, contacting your
mover two to three months before the move is vital. This will ensure that you are on their
schedule and not a last minute addition if they can move you at all.
- Purge-Get rid of
all of your extra items. It may be
difficult to know what to toss and what to keep, so use the general rule of
thumb- if you haven’t used it in a year, toss it. This is a great time to
donate any old or unused items. It’s also a great time to clean out that pantry
or junk closet.
- Pack-Packing is
incredibly important. If you pack
correctly, you can save yourself a lot of trouble later. Keep track of where
everything goes. Number and color code
boxes so you what room the box belongs to and you know how many boxes you have.
If possible, keep a list of what is in each box. You can use this as inventory and a quick
reference if you need something right when you move in.
- Personal Essentials-
If there are any items that you use on a regular basis, you should keep these
with you. You will want your chargers
and meds on you during the move. Also,
it is a good idea to keep valuables such as jewelry, firearms, and family photo
albums with you. You will be able to have peace of mind knowing where they are.
