Moving to a new location can be exciting, but it also can be very exhausting and aggravating. Virtually no one enjoys the actual moving process, which is a lot of work and might require the help of an experienced local mover. Fortunately, it’s possible to make the process go more smoothly when moving day comes. Instead of packing everything at the last minute and then unpacking when you get to your new home, here are some tips to help you stay organized and make the move more efficient.

Move Seasonal Items to a Storage Facility

Most people move during the spring or summer, but you might choose the fall or winter. No matter when you move, you’ll likely have some seasonal items you won’t need for months. According to the Garnaco Group, nearly 10% of U.S. households rent a self-storage unit. Renting a self-storage unit for a month or two can give you a place to temporarily move your seasonal items, so there’s less to move when moving day arrives.

Get Rid of All Clutter

Before you start packing for a move, you should start going through your things and throwing away anything you don’t use anymore. Many people hang onto items that they no longer use, and those items might be in bad shape. Anything of value that you don’t need you might sell at a garage sale, take to a pawn shop, or donate to a local thrift store. Getting rid of the clutter greatly reduces the amount of things you have to pack, lift, and unpack later. It also helps keep your move organized and efficient.

Hire a Local Mover for Large and Heavy Items

Nothing makes your move easier than hiring an experienced local mover to help get furniture, appliances, and other large items onto the back of a truck and haul them to your new place. A local moving service with a stellar reputation for professionalism and affordability can help make quick work of the most tiresome tasks, like loading couches, mattresses, and appliances and transporting them to your new home. Once there, they can unload the truck and help make the moving day a much more efficient process.
