Seven Secrets to Make Your Move Successful

Moving is stressful - that's a given, whether it's home moving or college moving. Fortunately, there are things you can do to minimize the stress and maximize the success of your move. You need to think ahead before a home or college move. Putting things off usually results in last minute chaos and frantic scrambling. Things get lost, forgotten and other disasters may occur when you haven't thought far enough ahead.

• Prepare for the transition to keep it smooth.

When can you move into your new place and when do you need to vacate the old one? Have you measured the spaces for furniture to ensure you know what will go where? What changes - such as wall painting - will you be making and how will you prepare? Answering questions like these before the last minute will help ensure you're prepared for moving homes.

• How will you sort and label your belongings when you pack them?

It's important to set up a system that's easy for you to remember and also makes it easy to unpack important items first. You may want to look into professional packing and unpacking services if you don't know how.

• Prepare for things that might go wrong.

Record serial numbers, makes, and models of electronics and other valuables in case they get lost or stolen. Store those along with your deeds and insurance papers. Getting insurance on your belongings before moving homes is a smart idea, as well.

• Save money on boxes and bubble wrap.

Boxes and bubble wrap can get expensive, so try saving up newspapers for packing, and ask for discarded boxes at grocery, electronics, and office supply stores.

• You don't really need all this stuff.

Moving is a perfect time to clean house, and get rid of any hoarding habits that you've formed during your time at your old place. Decide what you're keeping and what you're not as quickly as possible, and get rid of the unnecessary clutter by calling for a donation pick-up or junk removal service.

• Arrange phone and utility hook-ups before the last few days.

Planning your phone and utility hook-ups before moving homes is critical if you don't want to be without power, water, and a phone for your first few days.

• Call the movers in advance.

Depending on the season, they get really busy and you might have trouble finding a reliable local mover if you don't call far enough ahead of time - about six weeks is usually right, though long-distance moves need more time. You want to know that things will be taken care of by reliable local movers, so calling ahead to book for your home move or college move is essential.
