Eight survival tips for a successful move

Eight tips to avoid a moving fail

  1. Plan ahead: Plan a move weeks before the actual day. A moving file and calendar are good tools to keep all moving information – a lease or mortgage contract, utility hook up, power documents and other important information – in one place.
  2. Get organized: Organize boxes for their corresponding room in your new home, sealing them with colored duct tape to color code.
  3. Don’t crack under pressure: Keep plates in one piece by stacking Styrofoam plates between each one. Protect glasses by putting them inside pairs of clean socks.
  4. Vacuum seal out-of-season clothing: Don’t waste time fumbling with out of season clothes. Vacuum sealing will allow it to take up less space for the move, and it can go directly into storage in a new place.
  5. Think of the little things: Keep sandwich bags handy to hold small items that must be taken apart, such as screws for a mounted flat-screen television or a bed frame, and tape the bag to the back of the object. Label bags in case they get separated.
  6. Sweet dreams: If it’s time to replace an item, do so during the move to avoid extra packing. It might be a good time, for example, to replace an older mattress.
  7. Green thumb: Transport plants delicately by using a Christmas tree bag to keep all of the appendages safe and prevent snapping.
  8. Survival kit: Make life easier when arriving at the new home by packing an easily accessible overnight bag with clothes and necessary toiletries. Also include moving staples, such as a box cutter, paper towels, trash bags and power strips.
