Tips for a Smooth Move
You try to lift another box.
Sweat is dripping down your face. You see the watermarks as they fall from your trembling chin and land on the box. In defeat, you set the box back down.
You thought you could handle this alone. It’s a one bedroom apartment…how bad could it be? Moving is stressful. No matter how big or small, it is still a big ordeal. Whether you are moving a one bedroom apartment or a six bedroom mansion, there are a lot of things to consider and a lot that needs to be done.
Take it from the professionals! We have been moving people to and around Tacoma for years, so we know how challenging it can be…but it doesn’t have to be. With the right team and planning, this overwhelming and exhausting process becomes much more manageable. Here are a few tips to help you make your upcoming move a successful, stress-free (well at least less stressful) relocation!
- Plan Ahead- Contact your mover at least a month in advance. This ensures that they are able to service you and that your move will be a higher priority than other last minute moves.
- Label Your Boxes- As you pack, label boxes by room and what is in it. This allows you to take exact inventory of what you are moving and it also gives the movers instructions for where to put the boxes in the new home.
- Pack Essentials Separately- If you use something every day, pack it separately from your moving boxes. You don’t want to have a dead phone before you realize it’s in a box…on the truck. It is also a good idea to bring sheets, a towel, toiletries, a few outfits and other essential items.
