Moving can be a daunting task, but with these 12 helpful tips from The Garza Home Team at RE/MAX North San Antonio, you’ll be able to streamline the process and ensure a successful move. And with a few simple tricks, you can save time, money, and avoid unnecessary headaches.
- Move on a weekday while banks, utility companies, and government offices are open to avoid any scheduling conflicts.
- Use sheets, blankets, and towels to separate fragile items such as pictures and dishes to save space and moving supplies. Socks can also be slipped around delicate wine glasses to provide extra padding.
- Instead of using expensive bubble wrap or newspaper to wrap plates, alternate them with Styrofoam disposable plates for instant padding.
- Pack plates vertically to prevent them from breaking during transportation.
- Label each box with its contents and the destination room to make unpacking easier.
- Create two “OPEN ME FIRST” boxes with essential items such as snacks, coffee, toiletries, a flashlight, and tools.
- Utilize suitcases with wheels to pack heavy items such as books.
- Use garbage bags to protect hanging clothes during transportation.
- Take pictures of how electronics and knick-knacks are displayed on shelves for an easy unpacking guide and for insurance purposes.
- Avoid storing boxes in hard-to-reach areas such as the garage or attic to prevent forgetting important items.
- Resist the urge to relax and prioritize unpacking to keep the momentum going.
- Arrange for pets to stay with a friend or family member during the move to prevent confusion and stress.
