Packing and Moving Tips for Your Local or Long Distance Move When you’re planning for a local or long distance move, there are quite a few things that you can do to make things easier on both you and people that are helping you. We should know, after all. We’ve been helping people with their residential and commercial moves for quite a long time now. We’ve seen almost every situation come up, and we’ve seen what works and what helps. Make sure that you have all the supplies you need for packing up. This includes cleaning supplies, plenty of boxes, packing tape, box cutters, protective packaging, colored markers, sticky notes, and other similar items. Clean off everything as you prepare to pack it up. This is something we can’t stress enough. No one wants to take old dirt with them to their new home! Grab your dust cloth and wipe everything down. When you’re packing up your boxes, be sure to label them clearly on all sides with the name of the room it goes to. This way, it’ll be easy to get them to their proper destination and you won’t end up with a toaster in the basement or your toothbrush in the kitchen. Feel free to donate or get rid of stuff that you won’t be using anymore. Don’t start off in your new home by creating a whole new batch of clutter. There’s no better time to make decisions on what to keep than when you have to put it into a box. These are just some things to think about when planning for a move.
