Moving can be a very stressful task, especially when you are moving to a new city. But did you know with good planning and organizational skills, your move wouldn’t be so chaotic?
Having said that, let’s have a look at some of the areas where you can work to make sure that your move goes as smooth as possible.
Nobody likes clutter, so declutter
Moving house is the best time to declutter. When you live at a place for so many years, you tend to store a lot of things that are no longer of use. It is important that you discard the things that you can do away with so that you have more space for the things that are essential, and further make the entire moving process easier for yourself.
The best way to declutter is to ask yourself when was the last time you used a particular item? Are you hanging on to that item for sentimental reasons? Will your life change (for bad) if you decide to give that item up?
If you truthfully answer these questions, you’ll be able to get rid of a lot of things. In the case, you still are struggling; it may be worthy asking a friend to help you decide whether you should keep or bin the item.
This may sound simple, but early organization of the entire packing process can cut down stress levels. Here are some tips that can help you pack better:
- Pack like-for-like items in the same box. For example, keep vases and glassware together. Also, make sure that you have appropriate packing supplies for fragile items, like bubble wrap, cling film, etc.
- Next, make sure that all the boxes are labeled according to the room the stuff is meant for; and also mark the boxes for fragile items.
- Try to use appropriately sized boxes so that your contents remain protected during the move.
- Finally, label one box as ‘Essentials’, and pack all the items that you’ll immediately need in that box. This way you’ll have easy access to the much-needed items at your new home i.e., soaps, bedsheets, towels.
Organization is the Key
If you know unpacking might take some time, you may need to consider putting some or all your items into storage. There are a lot of moving pods companies to choose from, depending on the requirements – size and location. Try researching online to see what option best suits your move.
Remember to make a note of the items that are not allowed to be sent to storage like food, plants, and pets.
Finally, The Move
Planning your move is very important. Once you are ready to move, you must look for moving companies in Frederick, MD and hire them for a stress-free move.
Instruct the professional movers to first load the items of the least used room, so that they are placed in the storage unit first and therefore removed the last. We would personally recommend loading the garage room, spare room stuff first. Item items such as foodstuff, medicines, and toiletries should be left until last. Also, if you have children, don’t forget to keep some entertaining games for them as the last thing you’ll want is children getting bored during the journey.

It’s worth taking the time to get everything sorted beforehand so that you don’t rush the process as it can take longer than anticipated.
