So you finally closed on your new home. Congratulations! Now comes the hard part: making the move. Whether you’re concerned about packing up your collection of old (and new) records or your grandmother’s crystal dish set, you can trust our team of professional movers for some of the best moving tricks of the trade.
To save you time, headaches, and a tube or two of pain relief cream, be sure to check out our list of packing and moving tips below.
Eliminate your old junk
When you don’t use it, haven’t touched it in six months, or you can’t even remember the last time you looked at it – it’s time to let it go. Start a box of items to take to take to the Goodwill or Salvation Army on your side of town. This will eliminate time and physical effort on your part. Plus, doesn’t it feel good to get rid of clutter?
Pack like things together
This one seems a bit obvious, but it really does make moving easier. As professional residential movers, we’ve learned over the years that this is one of the biggest moving time-savers. It’s much easier to unpack all of your books or DVDs in one go versus unpacking things room by room.
Sell some of your old things
Chances are you’ll come across some things that could earn you some cash. Instead of donating it all, try the Cedar Rapids & Marion Resale group on Facebook.
If you’re looking to eliminate some furniture, Craigslist is always a good resource. As a team of professional movers since that’s been serving the Cedar Rapids and Marion area since 2004, we understand that trying to sell your unwanted items may seem like a hassle but your move will be so much easier. You can even use the cash towards something for your new home!
