Planning a move is stressful and there is a lot entailed from the moment you make your decision, to moving day.

Having a successful move starts with hiring the right moving company. Royal Moving and Storage has been moving residents of Northeast Florida for over 30 years. We understand the stresses of moving and work hard to make sure we take as much off of your plate as we can. Below are the 3 most important tasks to complete to make sure your upcoming move goes off without a hitch.
Schedule Your Next Move Early
This is the easiest of the tasks. Depending on your timeline and the time of year you are moving it may be necessary to schedule your move several months out. This will place you on the schedule and give you a chance to schedule a time slot that works best for you. A lot of moving is task-oriented so if you lock in a moving date you can now work towards a date to complete that goal. You can create a daily or weekly task list that will help you chip away at your moving items. This way you are not rushing to complete everything last minute.
Purge What You Can
The easiest way to decrease the number of items you need to pack is by getting rid of items that you no longer need or want. The majority of Americans have much more than we need or want in most cases. This is a good time to de-clutter your home by either giving your unnecessary items to charity or sell them online or in a garage sale. A simple rule of thumb is if you haven’t used it in a year, you probably do not need it. So, save yourself some work and money by purging the things you no longer need.
When you are in the throws of moving you want to be as efficient as possible, with the least amount of boxes. This can be accomplished by doing a little multi-purpose packing. A good example of this is when you are packing your breakable items, include your bath and kitchen towels in those boxes, both as a means to protect your breakable’s but also to consolidate your items to limit the amount boxes you have to pack. This will also decrease the amount of packing supplies you need to protect your fragile items.
Using the above tips can save you time, effort, stress, and help make your next move a success.
