Nobody is a big fan of moving and even in the best of circumstances and scenarios, moving can be frustrating and stressful to say the least. As a matter of fact, statistics and studies have proven that the majority of people surveyed listed moving as one of the, if not the most frustrating and challenging task of all. Here at The Green Truck Moving & Storage we want to help all our valued clients take the stress and frustration out of their move by affording you some simple moving tips that will actually make your move much quicker and easier.
First of all, we highly recommend you downsize before you start packing. It is always best to plan in advance for your move and best to spend time beforehand weeding out old clothing, books, magazines, tools, and the likes as well as sifting through all that paperwork, mail and other countertop accumulations. Though most people find decluttering to be a horrifying task, we strongly suggest to tackle one room at a time when decluttering and follow through each room from start to finish. For an even easier time packing, use our professional packing services, or our moving containers, “Eco-Crammers” to help make your move without all the cardboard!
We are confident you will find that this simple process will make the task at hand more manageable and doable. Perhaps you can set a downsizing schedule for you and family members and make certain to adhere to it. Rest assured when moving day arrives, you will have far less boxes that need lifting and transporting which means you will have a lot less to unpack when you get to your new home.
Next, we suggest the use of lots and lots of labels. It is definitely a challenge to find anything when you have a massive pile of boxes. To save yourself a good deal of frustration and stress we recommend you put a simple labeling system in place that will allow you to clearly identify which room in the new home that the box should go into. Be certain to put a label on both the top and bottom of the box as well. If you have specific items that you want to be able to locate and identify quickly, then maybe even choose color coded labels to make identification even easier.
You may even want to number the boxes and include a thorough description of the contents of each box on the top of the box as well. You can type out an accurate description of the contents and tape it to the top of the box, much like a general list, to make it remarkably easy for you to find exactly what you want and need quickly.

When you are all packed up and ready to make the move be certain to give a shout out to our team and schedule your date and time.

Though it may take a bit of time to perform these useful tips and a bit more time for planning at the outset, surely you can appreciate the benefits of an organized move that will most definitely save you a great deal of frustration and time.
