Douglasville movers

Moving is extremely exciting. Unfortunately, it’s also extremely stressful. You just never realize how much stuff you have until you start packing boxes!

Whether you’re moving from a small apartment in the city or a large house in the suburbs, your Douglasville moving company has you covered. If you want to make sure your move goes off without a hitch, follow these three tips that will keep you organized when moving.

1.  Create a master list

First, create a master list of what you need to do and when you need to do it. For example, make a numbered list of the rooms in your home that need to be packed. Start with areas of your home that contain unessential items, like the basement, and finish with areas of your home that contain essential items, like the bathroom.

You might find other lists to be helpful as well. Make a list of everything each member of your family is responsible for during the move. You may also want to make a list of Douglasville movers, their services, and their quotes before settling on the one that’s just right for you.

2.  Pack similar items together

You can save a lot of time packing and unpacking if you keep similar items together. Keep clothing, kitchen accessories, and office supplies in the same box. That way, when it’s time to unpack, you’re not moving back and forth between rooms. Label each box and it’s even easier!

3.  Get rid of things you don’t need

It’s easy to accumulate things over the years that you don’t really need. Whether it’s an old dresser, T-shirts, or toys, there’s no reason to pack it all up and take it with you. Instead, donate items that can be donated and discard the rest. It may take some time up front, but unpacking at your new home will go much more smoothly.
