Before You Move...

It's important to do a little prep work! Preparing for your move well in advance will make your actual moving day a cake walk. One important step in preparing to relocate is thoroughly researching the area and planning ahead. Do the following to prepare your move:

Sell What You Don't Want

Go through all of your belongings and mark it one of three ways: keep, donate, sell. Host a yard sale or create an eBay account to get rid of things you don't need (and make some extra money!) Donate anything that can't be sold.

Pack One Room at a Time

Begin with extra rooms like studies or play rooms. Carefully pack everything in boxes and created and be sure to label boxes with the corresponding room. The more in advance you begin this process, the easier moving will be!

Label Everything

Print out labels or color-code every single box you pack to make sure nothing gets lost or misplaced during the move. This will also make the unpacking process much easier!
