planning a move, there is no shortage of tasks to be completed. Start by getting organized
and making a checklist. Once the major items are ticked off—ending
your lease, selling your home, signing a new lease, buying a new home—it
is time to start preparing for the actual move. If you are moving within
the same city, renting a storage unit is a great way to minimize the burden
of moving everything at once as well as having additional storage space.
When moving, there are some important things to make sure you have covered.
Find a Moving Company
Even for smaller moves, hiring a moving company can take the stress out
of transporting all of your belongings from one location to another. No
matter how far the move, leaving it to the professionals ensures your
move is handled with care. Find a company you can trust. A good moving
company should be upfront and able to answer all of your questions about
your moving needs.
If you want to stay organized during and after your move, you should pack
all of your belongings in clearly marked boxes. This will help in packing
up your old home, as well as unpacking in your new home. It can also help
determine what should be moved into storage.
Find a Storage Unit
You should find a storage unit near your new home. A storage unit is a
great way to increase your storing capacity. Items that you do not use
year round, such as winter clothing, holiday decorations, or materials
for hobbies are just some of the examples of what can go into storage.
If you move items into a storage unit when you are already packed and
moving, it can save you from additional packing and moving. By doing it
all at once, you can save time and money.
