MAKE A LIST
Sort & Take Inventory Of Your Belongings
This step is so important to your success with your move.
Before you even think about beginning to pack, you should first take inventory of your belongings and sort everything. Before beginning to pack you should know everything that’s in your possession.
Get a notebook, pencil, and a cup of coffee ready and begin your inventory walk through your house.
SAY GOODBYE TO UNUSED STUFF
Packing all your possessions into boxes, bags, and more can be overwhelming. Make it a little bit easier on yourself by cutting back on clutter as much as possible. Before you pack a single box, do a merciless purge of unused or unnecessary items. You'll have less to pack, less to move, and less to unpack—and you'll start life in your new space with a clean slate.
PACK THE BASICS YOURSELF
On the night before the move, tuck everyday essentials—a change of clothes, a toothbrush, must-have stuffed animals or toys for the kids, medications, paperwork, etc.—into a suitcase or bag you'll keep with you in the car, the truck cab, or on the plane. If catastrophe strikes and the moving truck gets lost, at least you'll have some essentials with you.
-Do not pack money, jewelry, or important papers! Always transport these valuable personal items yourself, as the mover has no liability for these types of items.
