So you just finalized the paperwork on your new home in Cedar Rapids (heck yes!). But now the reality of having to pack and haul all of your things to your new space is setting in.
Don’t worry, now is not the time to panic!
When it comes to residential moving, our locally owned team knows a thing or two. White Glove Movers loves to help homeowners move across the country, to the other side of the state, and even to the other side of town.
We’ve been in the moving business for a while and are here to give you some tips and tricks for making your summer move run smoothly.
1.Schedule your packing
Packing gets overwhelming when you procrastinate. Summertime is full of fun activities and vacations, so the last thing you probably want to do is be cooped up in your home packing boxes. Trust us, the entire process will be much easier if you give yourself a daily box quota.
Start in one room and don’t go to the next one until that room is done. Keep a reminder on your calendar or smartphone to remind you to pack three to four boxes every day. After a few days, you should be ready to move on to the next room in your home.
Trust us on this one, packing in one fell swoop can be stressful unless you call in reinforcements. If you’d like some help with your residential packing, our team is ready to step in.
2.Use good quality boxes
Moving day will run smoothly if you avoid using cheap boxes. No one wants to see their valuables breaking all over the driveway on moving day, so don’t let it happen!
When it comes to packing materials, we’ve got you covered. We stock lots of high-quality boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, and packing paper. Not sure how much you need? Let us take a look at your home and give you an estimate. If you end up needing more, we’ll hook you up.
3.Pack your wardrobe separately
Who says you have to waste time taking all of your clothes off the hangers? Not us!
When you work with our professional moving team, we’ll get you some wardrobe boxes so you can take your clothes out of the closet and stow them in wardrobe boxes hangers and all. Then they’ll be ready to go back in the closet in your new space. Piece of cake.
4.Keep a master list
As a residential moving company, we know how easy it is to become disorganized during a move. The trick is to keep a master list of all your household items and personal belongings so you can check them off during the unpacking process. Make at least one copy of this list and keep one in your phone so you can keep track of everything.
5.Let the professionals help you
The good news about moving during Iowa summers is that there usually isn’t much in the way of bad weather. The occasional thunderstorm can rain on your moving day, and the humidity can be intense, but it’s typically smooth sailing.
No matter how far you’re moving, let the pros at White Glove Movers help you out. We’re happy to take care of the packing, moving, and hauling process for you so you don’t have to break a sweat on your summer moving day.
