How to Save Time When You Move
A new home can offer more space, nicer amenities, and a more convenient location. But as much as you and your family may enjoy the better house, you may all dread actually moving because of the time and effort it involves. Speed up the move to your new home with these quick tips.
#1: Plan Ahead
Plan your move as far ahead of time as possible. If you can plan up to a year ahead, you have more flexibility in picking seasons, months and even days when a move can be done quickly and inexpensively.
For example, moving in the summer when everybody else does will cost you more time and money than if you move outside of that season. Set a schedule on when to get things done and stick with it.
#2: Get Quality Expert Help
A good moving company can make or break your transfer, so take the time to hire the best one. Get recommendations from family, friends and housing websites. Interview several companies and check out their online reviews. See how receptive they are to offering you help in organizing your move because that's the kind of service you can expect during the move itself.
Be sure that they have the proper credentials by checking with the Better Business Bureau and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
#3: Get Rid of What You Don't Need
If you have fewer items to deal with, the process will go faster. So get rid of any clothes, furniture, accessories or items that you don't need. Be ruthless in figuring out what you want to bring.
If you haven't used something in a year, it's a safe bet that you can eliminate it without a problem. Sell it online, give it to friends or family or donate it to a thrift shop. Don't forget to ask your spouse and kids to do the same thing with their possessions.
#4: Take Time to Pack
Packing your items over a few weeks or days is far less stressful than having to do it all at once. Taking your time also helps you figure out what you want to bring or leave behind. Don't forget to identify the contents of each box on the outside because you'll never remember what's in them. It's also helpful to indicate specifically where you want the movers to put the box, such as “corner opposite door of the basement bedroom.”
#5: Prep Your Home on Moving Day
Make it as easy as possible for the movers to do their jobs.
- Leave a clear path from the interior of your house to the front door and to their truck by moving boxes and furniture out of the way.
- Disconnect all appliances and electronics that you're bringing along.
- Be sure to clearly mark items that you're leaving behind, such as kitchen appliances and laundry appliances, playground equipment and furniture.
- Think twice about packing perishables that you can easily purchase at your new place. They may break en-route causing a mess, or develop mildew and mold.
