Preparing For a Move? Here Are Some Tips When Planning Your Move

Relocating households takes time, effort and is undoubtedly stressful.

Luckily these tips can make your move go as smoothly as possible on the day of your move.

10 Essential Moving Tips

Book Your Movers Early

Make sure you book your move as early as you can. Depending on the time of year, the moving company’s schedule can book up quickly and your desired move date may not be available.


As soon as you know you will be moving, you can start to declutter. This is a great way to get rid of items you may no longer need. By decluttering as much as possible, you will save time on packing and money on moving.

Organize & Label boxes

Whether you will be labeling the boxes using colors or numbers. Organizing your boxes and labeling will allow the movers to know where to put each box. It will also help you know where items are in each box during the unpacking process.

Pack An Essential Box

Also known as the first night box. This box should contain items you use on a daily basis as well as important things you will need right away so you don’t have to go looking through boxes after your move.


As much as you try to prepare, challenges can occur. Whether it’s weather or access challenges. Your move could take longer than anticipated. Be prepared as much as possible so the day will go as smoothly as possible.

Be Ready On The Day Of Your Move

When the moving team arrives, they will be ready to wrap your furniture and move everything out of your home. If you’re not ready and still have a bunch of items to pack, the process will go slow. We suggest being as ready as possible by having the packing done the day before to avoid this.

Keep Track Of Your Valuables

It’s important to protect valuables while moving. Take inventory and track your belongings. We encourage some items to be transported in your own vehicle such as: Jewelry, sentimental items, painting and artwork.

Communicate & Be Present On Moving Day

Communicate with your moving team as much as possible on the day of your move. Do not leave the site until the moving team is finished. This way, If they are facing any challenges or have any questions, you will be on site to answer.

Discuss Any Challenges That May Occur Ahead Of Time

Inform your movers of any obstacles in advance such as construction, parking, lots of stairs, small doorways, narrow streets. By letting your movers know in advance, they can better prepare.

Book Elevator Or Street Parking

If you are able to book the elevator or reserve street parking outside your home this will help your move go faster. You may have to contact the City for a street parking permit and building manager to book your elevator.
