Moving can take a lot of time. This is because you have to do a lot of things regarding your move. But there is a way to speed up the moving process. If you want to know how to do just that, you came to the right place because we are going to give you all the information you need in order to do this the right way and make it successful.
Start packing on time
Packing is the part of the moving process that lasts the longest, especially if you are moving with your family. This is because while packing you will also have to do a lot of cleaning and decluttering. Decluttering can also be used for cutting down the time of the packing process. Getting rid of the things that you don’t need makes packing last much shorter than it would last if you took the time out of your day to pack something that you don’t need. Decluttering will also make your moving company bill much cheaper because the less stuff you are moving, the less you have to pay.
If you start packing on time, you will be able to move much earlier than you planned. You will also have a lot more time to do it and you won’t be doing it in such a rush. You can also make your packing last much shorter by hiring a moving company like ours or getmovedtoday.com to pack your stuff for you.
Being organized is very important if you want to speed up the moving process
You can stay organized during your moving process in many different ways. The best way to do it is to have a list of:
- every expense you have and had to cover
- packing plan
- all the items you are moving
- all the items you threw away or donated.
You can make this list by using good old pen and paper. That is the more traditional way of doing it. But you can also solve this task with a more modern approach and create a document on your computer or your phone. Whichever option suits you more, you should go for it as being organized can reduce the length of your moving process.
The packing plan is the most important part of being organized. If you create a good packing plan, the packing will last even shorter than you expected it to last. This plan is going to consist of the order of the rooms that you need to pack. The first rooms that you need to pack up and declutter are the ones that you don’t use as often as other rooms in your home – attic, and basement are those rooms. If you don’t have these rooms in your home, figure out which other room you use the least. For some, it’s the dining room and for some, it’s the living room. Move onto packing your kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms last.
Using this method will allow you to stay more organized and to pack up much easier and faster. It is also good to have someone helping you with each room or if there are more of you you could split the job. But it is very important to keep track of all the things that you are packing and throwing away because if something goes missing you can notice it earlier.
If you want your moving process to last shorter, you definitely need to hire relocation specialists in your neighborhood. They can load and unload trucks much faster than you can. And as they do this almost every day, it will be much easier for them than for you if you tried to do the same.
Besides, having a DIY move can also be very risky for your health. Lifting heavy objects can cause a lot of damage to your body if you aren’t physically ready for it. The last thing you need is to get hurt during your relocation. This won’t make a great beginning of your new chapter. You also need to make sure that the movers you are hiring are reliable. We have some tips for you on how you can find reliable movers.
Move during the off-season
Yes, there is an off-season for moving. It’s wintertime. For many reasons. Winter is when the Holiday season is so naturally, nobody wants to move during the Holiday season. This is the time of the year you need to be spending with your family and not packing boxes and moving. Moving during summertime is more popular because that is when people have a lot of free time and children aren’t going to school. The only problems that could occur if you decide to move during winter in Florida are hurricanes and a lot of traffic as Florida is a very popular holiday destination for people from all over the country. Moving during winter will also cost much less.
If you stick to everything that we told you, you will be able to both speed up the moving process and make it less stressful. But it’s always important to remember that not everything is going to work out the way you planned it to go. That’s something you always need to keep in mind while relocating yet you still have to do your best to make everything go according to the plan you made.
