Planning a move is one of those things that you really don’t want to leave to the last minute. Some people even begin planning several months to a year before their move date. The reason for this is clear: moving can be complicated and stressful! It’s one of those situations where the minute details really matter and forgetting something that seems small can quickly turn into a nightmare.
With that said, it’s not always possible to carefully plan out each step of your move. Sometimes you might need to move in a hurry because of a sudden change in living circumstances, for example, and other times you just procrastinate a bit too much. Whatever the reason, the professional movers at Family Moving and Storage have some tips to make moving day in Palm Bay, Vero Beach and surrounding areas a little easier.
Trash the Things You Don’t Need
The first thing to do when you have to move quickly is to decide what to take along. Keep in mind that the more you pack, the more you have to move – and do you really need that pile of books that you haven’t touched in three years? Be ruthless when it comes to thinning out your belongings and make the number of things you pack and move as small as possible.
Get the Packing Done
Once you know what you’re taking and what you’re leaving, start packing! While we normally advise carefully labeling and organizing your moving boxes, the fact of the matter is that this loses importance when faced with a quick move. The priority here is to get everything in a box and ready to go for your movers, and that’s where you should focus your efforts.
Keep the Necessities Close at Hand
There is an exception to the “just pack” tip. When moving in a hurry, things are more likely to get displaced. That means that you should take the time to carefully pack all of your necessities in a single bag and keep it on your person. Things like medicine, electronics, and chargers, for example, should be included.
Determine How You’re Moving
Are you going to do everything yourself, or are you going to hire professional movers? Keep in mind that time is precious and in short supply in these situations, so figure out a timeline and the logistics of the move as quickly as possible. Opt for the moving solution that helps make the most of your time and money.
Reach Out for Help
You need help when you’re moving in a hurry. This is true in almost every possible situation. With that in mind, reach out to family and friends for assistance! If you aren’t able to secure their help, then consider reaching out to experienced movers who can help you pack, load, and unload everything you need them to. It’s okay to need and ask for help!
