Make Your Move a Little Easier!

Make Your Move a Little Easier!

You can make the process of moving less overwhelming with a little planning.  Here are some tips to make your move just a little bit easier.

  • Gather used boxes in all sizes from friends and neighbors or purchase new one from the store.
  • Collect cushioning material such as bubble wrap, Styrofoam pellets, furniture pads, old blankets, plastic bags, tissue paper, newspapers, and small towels to use as padding inside boxes.
  • Create a “portable packing kit” with felt pens, a tape measure, packing tape, twine, pocket knife, and scissors.  Carry it with you as you pack up items around your home.
  • Reinforce the bottom of boxes with extra tape for added strength.
  • Label each box with the name of the room in your home where it should be placed.
  • Number the boxes and keep a list of which boxes goes in which room in your new home.
  • Label boxes containing fragile items clearly (i.e., large red lettering).
  • Pack your computer, TV, and stereo in their original boxes whenever possible.
  • Keep boxes to 50 pounds or less.
  • Pack heavy items into their own smaller boxes and place lighter items together into larger boxes.  (Don’t pack all your books into one box!)
  • Don’t move flammable, combustible, corrosive, or explosive items such as paint, gasoline, and ammunition.
  • Place china in plastic bags and stack plates upright on their sides, not flat.
  • Create an "Open First" box, which contains the essentials you will need right away, such as toilet paper, soap, toothpaste, trash bags, paper towels, cups and plates, scissors, snacks, towels, etc.).
  • Pack a bag of personal items you’ll need during the move (change of clothes, toiletries, medicine, maps, food, and drinks).  Keep it in an easy-to-find place.
  • Gather your important electronics (laptops, cell phones, etc.) along with their chargers.
  • Place your legal, medical, financial and insurance records in a safe place you can easily access.
