Moving Made Easier: Tips and Tricks for a Stress-Free Move

Moving to a new home can be an exciting yet daunting experience. With the right preparation and knowledge, however, it doesn't have to be a stressful process. Here are some tips and tricks to make your move easier and more efficient. Pack one room at a time, as a team.

This will help you stay organized and make sure that all of your belongings are accounted for. Label the boxes on several sides so that you can easily identify them when you arrive at your new home. Don't empty the drawers of your dresser; instead, wrap them in plastic wrap or bubble wrap to keep them secure during the move. Attaching a piece of string to the seam of the moving boxes will help you keep track of them and make sure they don't get lost in the shuffle.

Leave your clothes on the hanger and use a portable closet to transport them. The metal rod extends from 35 to 59 inches in length, which fits most vehicles. An all-purpose knife makes opening boxes a breeze, but be careful when using it if you have packed the boxes to the top; it's easy to accidentally cut your belongings while cutting the tape that keeps the box closed. What is more difficult than carrying all your boxes and furniture to and from a moving truck? Carrying all your boxes and furniture with an injured hand.

Invest in some work gloves to protect yourself from scratches, cuts, and punctures. If you want to save money on moving supplies, ask around; more than 10% of Americans move annually, so you're likely to know someone who has extra boxes or packing tape lying around. Similarly, you probably know someone who has tools you can borrow or gloves you can use. Call for supplies on social media and you may be surprised at what you get. In preparation for your move, this portable label maker is a must for keeping things organized.

You can use it to print custom labels to easily identify your belongings. In addition, you have the option to choose from six different font sizes, eight text styles, and more than 200 symbols. To help protect your mattress from damage caused by dirt and water, consider buying a mattress bag. This one from U-Haul is easy to put on and can fit a mattress up to 10 inches thick. However, it is only large enough to fit a standard mattress, so you'll have to buy a second mattress bag to cover the box spring and mattress topper. If you hire moving services, renting supplies, or hiring professionals such as painters or cleaners to work around the house, book in advance.

Waiting to do so could mean paying a higher price or not being able to get a truck or moving company, especially if it's peak moving season. If you're going to have to climb bulky items up and down a lot of stairs, consider using portable mobile belts instead of a dolly. Comprehensive moving services, worldwide availability, and top customer ratings make IVL one of the best choices for any move. In addition, if your children are moving to a new school district, notify the school about the move and search for a school in your new area. We recommend renting wheelbarrows and dollies from a moving company rather than buying them unless you plan to move a lot of furniture on a regular basis and have plenty of storage space. We recommend that you research companies eight weeks before the move and get quotes and hire them at least seven weeks before the move.
