When people plan for an upcoming move, they are often so focused on planning for their new home that they forget to take the necessary steps before the professional movers arrive at their existing home. If you’re looking to make your upcoming move go as smoothly as possible, there are some necessary tasks that need to be handled before moving professionals come transport your belongings to your new home. Our team at Capitol Moving & Storage is here to share those key tasks with you.
Create an Inventory List
Homeowners don’t realize just how much stuff they’ve accumulated over the years until they get ready to move. In order to make sure that all of your belongings make it safely from your old home to your new one, it is important to create an inventory list that documents every item that you are moving. This should be done before our professional moving team at Capitol Moving & Storage arrives so that you have every item accounted for before they hit the moving truck. Rest assured that all of your belongings will make it safely to your new home thanks to our experienced and trusted moving team at Capitol Moving & Storage, but this inventory list will definitely provide you with peace of mind throughout your upcoming relocation.
Labeling is Key
One great way to make sure that your move goes smoothly is to make sure to label all of the boxes that you’d like our professional movers to transport for you. Some of our past clients have labeled their boxes based on the items in the box, the room in which they want the movers to place the boxes or based on whether or not the box is fragile. Not only does this help our professional moving team, but it will also help the unpacking process go a lot smoother than if you just throw all of your belongings in boxes that aren’t labeled.
The Perfect Time to Downsize
There is no better time to downsize your belongings than before our professional movers arrive at your home. Chances are that there are plenty of items that you haven’t used in years or even decades. Why spend the time, money and effort to move these items just so they can be stored and not used again in your new home? Treat your new home as a fresh start. Those items that you decide to get rid of could be donated or sold, depending on the condition.
At Capitol Moving & Storage, we’ve seen the benefits first hand of how much smoother a move goes if the homeowners handle these important tasks before our professional movers arrive at your home.
