Take the stress out of moving
Have area rugs professionally cleaned before your move. They will return from the cleaners rolled, wrapped and ready for packing.
One of the best investments you can make is in PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). Protective items like Heavy-Duty Work Gloves can keep your fingers and hands from getting cut during the moving process.
Prep your plants. A few weeks ahead of the move, rid your plants of dead leaves and branches and give them a good prune. One week before your move, remove dust, pests and weeds.
Heavy stuff on the bottom, light items on top.
It’s exactly like bagging your groceries. You don’t want to crush your light items, and the heavy items will help hold the boxes right-side up.
If you have teeny-tiny items to bring with you, group them together and put them in small sealable bags first. By pre-packing them, they’ll be easy to find when you’re unpacking.
