Fall has officially started and already the days are getting shorter. It seems like everyone’s in a hurry, trying to get everything done as quickly as possible. That’s particularly true when it comes to moving. If you’re looking for tips to streamline the packing and moving process, you have come to the right place.
Streamline Your Move Tip #1: Sort Before You Pack
It’s easy to accumulate a lot of stuff you don’t necessarily want or need. This is particularly true if you have children who have outgrown clothing, toys, and other belongings. Save yourself time and lots of money by sorting out your possessions before you pack. Items that no longer have a place in your life can be sold, donated, or tossed as you see fit. The result of this sorting? Your packing, moving and unpacking duties just got a whole lot easier.
Streamline Your Move Tip #2: Hire Someone To Watch the Kids & Pets During Busy Times
As an experienced NYC moving company, we pride ourselves on scheduling moves to best meet our clients’ timelines. This can mean packing and moving possessions while the kids are in school or away for the weekend. If that option isn’t viable for you, consider hiring someone to watch the kids somewhere else during the busiest portion of the move. It allows everyone to move quickly and keeps parents’ stress levels down. This also applies to dogs, cats, and other animal companions!
Streamline Your Move Tip #3: Professional Packing Service
Let’s be real: carefully wrapping and packing all of your life’s possessions in boxes takes a ton of time. Hire a professional packing service and be amazed as the pros do the job in a fraction of the time. Their expertise at safely packing fragile glassware, electronics, antiques, artwork and other breakables means your stuff will arrive at your new address in great condition – and you don’t lose precious hours of your life wrapping tea cups in newspaper.
BONUS TIP: Unpacking services are also available – just ask your NYC moving company!
Streamline Your Move Tip #4: Focus on High Use Areas First
Pack and unpack the areas of your home that get used most often first. For most families, this means the kitchen, bathroom and bedding. Children often have their own priorities, and you can keep them happy by having them unpacking their own things while you focus on all of the family’s essential items.
