5 Tips for Moving in a Week or Less

Moving is never easy, whether you have a few months or just a few weeks. However, when you have only a week or less to plan a move, the stress can be overwhelming. By learning more about moving in a hurry, you can complete a quick move in no time. Follow the successful moving tips below to ensure your move goes off without a hitch!

  • Planning is Important

The first step to a successful move is to plan. When living in Melbourne, you need to plan every aspect of your move, especially when your time is limited. If you need to hire professional movers, do that first. Have a reputable and licensed moving company like us in place to assist you with the process. The more hands that are available, the better! It’s extremely helpful to come up with a list of everything you need to accomplish in order to move. Once you have a plan to get your items moved to your new home, you can then begin packing up.

  • Supplies are Needed

You can’t move without supplies. One of the first steps you need to complete is gathering the right supplies. Instead of having to go back and forth to the store for boxes and supplies, use a packing calculator to figure out how many boxes you need. Get various sizes to hold small and larger items, getting started going room by room. Make sure you have the right supplies on hand, including packing paper, tape and furniture protectors if needed.

  • Declutter

Use your quick move to declutter your home. Moving in to a new place will be even easier with less stuff! Think about everything you are packing up. Do you have clothes that you no longer wear? Do you have DVDs that are useless as you no longer use a DVD player? Consider every item you are packing up and think if you use it. Create three piles in your home during moving; toss, recycle and donate categories. Work quickly but consider each item, hopefully cutting down on the number of items you have in the home.

  • Organization

Because you have limited time, organization may need to be thrown out the window. You don’t have time to pack items in an organized way. You may have to just put clothes in with books or other items that do not go together. However, it is recommended that you pack room to room. Working from room to room allows you to finish one area and move on to the next. While your boxes may be unorganized regarding what is inside, you will be clearing each room, able to enjoy the progress as you go! Your Space Coast home will soon be packed up and ready to move.

  • Small Details

Because you are in a hurry to move, you may forget a few small details. Be sure to fill out a change of address form with the post office as well as schedule your cable, internet, electricity, etc. to be turned off. If you forget these details, you may have to pay more during your move or you may forget to have these items turned on at your new home!  

Following these simple steps will ensure your move runs smoothly, even if you have only a few short days to get the job done!
