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.
