How to Get Ready for Last Minute Moving

How to Get Ready for Last Minute Moving

Sometimes, you need to move in a hurry. Regardless of your reason, preparing for a last-minute move can be very important. This blog aims to help you prepare so that you’re ready to go when the movers arrive. It can be overwhelming for most people to know a lot of work needs to be done. We asked our professional movers for tips to help you plan a last-minute move. Here is their advice:

Have a Plan

As you prepare for your last-minute move, list every task that needs to be done. Take a walk through your home, look at each room, and make a list of all the things that need to be done for each room. You can break down the entire job into smaller tasks when you make a list. Smaller tasks will help increase your confidence and optimism.

Sorting Items

Now is the best time to figure out what you are taking. Start sorting what you want to take by going to each room. If you haven’t used the item in a long time, we recommend that you give it away. An example of this is those old jeans from high school that do not fit anymore. Create three piles, such as items for packing, donating, and garbage. Sort all your things into these different piles. If you’re having issues deciding if you should keep something or throw it away, just put that item to the side to go back to.

Packing Supplies

After you have sorted your things, you will know how many boxes you will need for packing. We recommend going to Home Depot for boxes because they sell cheap and of good quality. Some other places you can find boxes are stores, Facebook pages, local hardware stores, and storage companies. Don’t forget to get bubble wrap, packing paper and lots of tape. Quality supplies will help make packing easier. We also recommend buying various small, medium, and large boxes. Ask us about our wardrobe cartons.

Pack Rooms in Order

Some people scramble when preparing for a last-minute move. They jump from room to room and start packing all over the place. This strategy takes longer and causes you to lose your packing momentum. When you tackle one room at a time, you will build confidence in finishing the work.

Get Some Help

Make sure to ask for help. Asking family and friends for help is a great way to connect before your move and make the process go faster.

Professional Help

Sometimes, people don’t have the time to handle a last-minute move. This is where full-service moving comes in handy. This service handles the packing, moving, and unpacking. Ask your mover if they offer this service or if they can recommend a company that does. This service will ensure all items are properly packed, moved, and unpacked.
