Moving into a new home can be both exciting and stressful. There are several things you can do in preparation for the move to help take some of the stress out of moving. Here we will take a look at how a little pre planning and preparation can make things go so much smoother and less stressful.


Moving Tip #1: Get Rid Of Things

Why move things you no longer need or no longer use? Get rid of the clutter and go through those boxes that are still packed since the last time you moved. You can have a yard sale with these items to make a little extra money, which will come in handy when moving. Be sure to pick a day that has good weather and price your items to sell, remember, you are not taking it with you! What you don’t sell, donate. Purging clothing, toys and furniture you don’t need will make moving so much easier and will make organizing your new home a simpler task.


Moving Tip #2: Stay Organized When Packing

When you are packing up your things, stick to one room at a time. Clearly label your boxes on all sides so you know which room the boxes belong in when they arrive at your new home and they can be taken straight to that room. When packing make sure to wrap any breakable items in craft paper, bubble wrap or packing beads and label boxes as such. You may also want to pack one box specifically with items you will need the night you arrive to your new home. Things to include in this box would be bathroom essentials, pajamas for everyone and anything else you will need to make it through the night. You may be too tired to unpack that day.


Moving Tip #3: Take Apart Any Furniture You Can Before Moving Day

Disassemble any furniture you can, such as bed frames and tables, prior to the moving trucks arriving. You don’t want to waste precious time with your rental truck taking apart furniture. Make sure to wrap any corners or special pieces that could get scratched, dented, or damaged during the moving. Use furniture pads for extra protection.


Moving Tip #4: Have Valuable Antiques and Art Prepared For Travel

You don’t want your valuable art or antiques to get broken during the move. Be sure to have your valuables wrapped and packaged prior to moving to protect them. You may wish to have a professional do this to ensure they arrive in one piece.


Moving Tip #6: Assemble Furniture First

You should also assemble the furniture at your new home first, prior to unpacking boxes. This way you don’t have things just laying around and in the way. With assembled and placed furniture, you can put things away as you unpack them.


Moving Tip #6: Hire A Moving Company To Do It All And Let The Stress Fade Away

This tip is the one that will get rid of the most stress! Hire moving companies in washington dc  can take out all the stress of moving. They typically offer packing and unpacking services, furniture disassembly and reassembly as well as packing art and antiques for travel. If you are looking for a stress free moving, this is by far the best and easiest way to go.
