Moving from one home to another is not an easy task. Aside from its physically and emotionally draining, it sometimes accompanies huge expenditure and loss of cash.

Hiring moving companies can ease the burden of moving. With these experts, you’ll know that all the stuff you need will be taken care off at the moving day. But as a homeowner, you still have things to do to make moving much easier and faster. Below are few tips and advice that can surely help.

moving Boxes

Get the right tools

Purchase boxes and other essential tools that you might need for your moving journey. Packing tapes, cable ties and such could be a big help. So list down all the tools that you’ll need and buy them before you start packing things up for your moving journey.

Pack early

Although moving companies can do the packing task for you, it’s best if you can do the packing early too. Pack all those small, personal items that you don’t want others to see or touch. Put them in a box and label it accordingly. This can help moving become faster and convenient for all.

Arrange the permits

If you need any permits for your move from one place to another, sort them out weeks before the moving day. Parking permit is one thing you should check out too so your movers can freely park their truck without any trouble or hassle.

Get technical help

For your home appliances like refrigerator, washing machine and dryers, consider hiring experts that can handle such equipment. Although your moving company can do this too, it’s best to hire someone who is expert in handling such “expensive” home tool and equipment to avoid costly damages.

    These are some great tips, I definitely agree with starting to pack early, if you leave it all till the last minute it can make things so much more stressful for all involved.

  2. Becki says:

    I’ve sworn I’ll never move again. LOL If I do, I’ll definitely be paying someone else for all those details 😉 Thanks for the advice!

    Moving can be a huge inconvenience, but your tips will make it easier. I start packing as soon as we know we’re going so it isn’t a mad dash at the end.

  5. Jeanette says:

    I have moved so many times I’m pretty sure I might be a pro. Everything you say here is exactly right. The more organized you are the better in the smoother the move goes

  6. I definitely think that getting movers makes all the difference in the world. I’m a military brat and moved so much, you have no idea. It’s super stressful moving and trying to do it all yourself. No thanks, I’ll spend the cash and invest in experts. Hey, to save my sanity and mental health, it’s worth every penny.

  7. I recommend going through your stuff and getting rid of anything you no longer want or need. No use in lugging around something that should go in the trash or head to the thrift shop!

  8. Jenn says:

    These are great tips. I haven’t moved in over ten years, and remember it being really stressful.

  9. Cassie says:

    good timing – we are moving in a few weeks ugh! I’m so not excited but great tips!!

  10. Cat says:

    Ugh moving is almost ALWAYS a hassle! Any way I can make it easier and less of a hassle is a win in my book! Keeping these tips in mind for our move next year!

  11. Lynzy & Co says:

    These are such great tips. Moving can be so rough and this is totally helpful.

  12. I have a great friend and neighbor who is moving this weekend. I’m going to pass this onto her 🙂

  13. Echo says:

    These are great tips! Moving can be such a beast of a time consumer!

  14. We recently moved across the country. It definitely helps to have everything planned out. I didn’t run into “permit” issues as much as I ran into “parking” laws. In our Minnesota neighborhood, you could only park on the left side of the road on some days – and the right side of the road on others. Since we garaged our vehicle, I never knew this. Wish I had known to look for this before we tried to load up a moving van.

  15. Andrea says:

    I moved a few months ago, and can say these are super helpful tips! Thanks for sharing!

  16. Ave says:

    I have moved so many times in my life that I have lost count. Having the needed permits and right tools makes moving much easier. Thanks for great tips!

  17. We hired a company to move us. It was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.

  18. We moved to our current house 2 years ago and I could totally relate. Packaging early really helps free up our time to do something else. Moving can be such a pain but with the right tips and professional movers, it could be a breeze.

  19. We have moved 9 times over the last couple of years, one cross country. I can tell you these tips are super helpful and things I do regularly.

  20. These are valuable tips. Moving to another house is really hard when not planned properly. I know that because we moved from one house to another for four times before we found the permanent one.
