Top Tips for an Easy Move
All it takes is a little planning and organization to make your move as easy as 1, 2, 3. Don't put off getting started — make sure you're prepared! Browse our three main steps for a successful move below.
Before the Move
Now's the time to kick off your planning. Walk through every room in you house, and make a list of the clutter and items that you're willing to get rid of. From clothes to holiday decor, decreasing the stuff you have to pack up will help lighten you stress.
Whether you're taking your extra stuff to a donation center, dropping it off at a thrift store, or hosting your own yard sale, anything you can do to downsize is recommended. If you need some big boxes and packing materials, try checking your local grocery or big box stores for extra cardboard boxes, tape, labels, and more.
Getting Ready to Move
Try not to feel too overwhelmed by packing things up — just move one room at a time, starting with the emptier moves and moving on to the ones you use every day. It's good to start this process as soon as possible, so you don't feel pressure from time constraints.
Label your boxes based on room or a similar category to make unpacking easier. Pack away seasonal things right away, then use some of the bulkier items to cushion your fragile and valuable things. No matter what, the number one thing to remember is to label everything clearly and carefully.
During the Move
You'll want to keep some things with you throughout the move — like phone chargers, toiletries, wallets, snacks, and more. Keep a backpack around for all of the items you'll want access to throughout the moving process. If you have important or valuable items that you'd also like to keep close, this is a great place to stash them.
When you get to your new home, start things off on the right foot with a nice deep clean. Since the home will be empty, now's the chance to make sure it's as clean as possible, so vacuum, dust, mop, scrub, and everything in between.
There's a lot more to the moving process that just packing. From exploring the area, to figuring out your finances, to navigating market trends, there's a lot to cover. Luckily, the team at Amore Real Estate, Inc is here to answer any and all of your questions along the way.
