Simple Tips to Make Your Move Go Smoothly

Moving day is right around the corner. You’re starting to get that pit in your stomach, dreading the thought of how much you still have to do and how little time you have to do it. Moving doesn’t have to be a nightmare, though. Here are a few simple tips to help you prepare for your upcoming move.

With the right mindset, getting your stuff organized before your move can actually be fun and rewarding. Use this as a chance to declutter your life a little by making different piles such as:

  • Throw-away pile
  • Donation pile
  • Sell pile

Not only is this a chance at a fresh start in your new place, you could also make a few bucks by selling clothes or kitchen appliances that are just taking up space.

Trying to lock in a moving crew on a Wednesday night when you have to be out that weekend can be impossible. Try not to wait until the last minute. Whether you’re renting a truck, packing up a friend’s van or hiring a professional crew, you’re probably not completely alone in your moving endeavor. That thought should help to ease the stress, but make sure everyone is on the same page, scheduled and booked to help well before moving day gets there.

This tip sort of falls under the getting organized section, but we think it’s important enough to justify its own category. Making a list or multiple lists within one large master list can help your move go off without a hitch from start to finish.

List out things like:

  • Large items
  • Numbered boxes with what is in them
  • Names and contact information of helpers and moving crew
  • Check boxes with things you have left to do

Relying on a list instead of your already stressed out brain to remember everything is a great way to stay calm and be efficient throughout your moving process.


Calling in the pros is always a good idea. Professional movers such as Bos Moving & Service Inc. can help you get organized, give you more in-depth preparation tips and do all the heavy lifting for you. They are also insured so you can rest a little easier knowing your stuff is in good hands.
