Don’t wait until the last minute to reserve a truck, storage unit, or container
Pack your boxes ahead of time
Going through all of your things in advance will give you a good opportunity to get rid of all the things you don't want anymore. Remember that the more you pack before moving day, the easier your move will be!
Schedule us to unload at your destination

A lot of the time, people without moving experience suffer back injuries while moving. For that reason we recommend that you moving help that can potentially save you an expensive trip to the hospital.
Moving Tips For Home Moving
Have plenty of supplies.
Don't make me say this twice-- you'll need LOTS of boxes--probably more boxes than you think, and having enough boxes will make your life easier! Have about 10 boxes set aside to use for last minute items on moving day, such as bedding, clothing, and cleaning supplies.
You'll need strong plastic packing tape to close up the boxes securely. Use unprinted newsprint (newspaper can stain your items) or packing paper or bubble wrap to wrap and cushion household good. Again, you'll need lots more supplies than you think, so get extra so the packing can go smoothly. Return any unused supplies after the truck is packed.
Utilize wardrobe boxes.
These tall boxes are perfect for bulky, lightweight items such as comforters, pillows, and blankets, as well as clothes that need to remain hanging. Call your mover to ask the width of the wardrobe boxes they'll be bringing. Then measure the clothes in your closets (including coat closets) to see how many wardrobe boxes you'll need.
Designate a color for each room in the new home, such as yellow for kitchen, orange for dining room, etc. Apply colored stickers on the box near the box number. In your new home. Put a matching sticker on the door to each room. The movers will know where to put everything when they arrive at the destination. It's also helpful to post a big sign on the wall in the room where you want boxes stacked, to keep them out of furniture and traffic areas.
Moving Tips For Business Relocation
Create a timeline for when packing and the move will take place
Now that you know where you are moving, coordinating a move can be a challenge with all the equipment and furniture contained within an office. Evaluate the current situation of your company’s office to see how you want the new office to be laid out and how you plan to make it happen within your designated budget. 4-6 months before the move, you’ll need to make sure employees are well aware of when changes will be occurring. Schedule time for updating the Internet and phone services and obtaining the necessary permits, licenses and insurance policies. The larger the office you have, the more time you will need to plan.
Allocate resources accordingly
From budgeting for movers and equipment transportation to making time for your employees, make sure you are putting your resources in the right places. Don’t be afraid to ask an employee or two for assistance.
Hire movers and cleaners 1 to 3 months before the move
Planning ahead is important as the transition from one office space to another should go off without a hitch. If you are planning to hire movers, simple moving labor or a cleaning service to help with the process, now is the time to do it. Make sure you research the companies and go with a business that can provide recommendations.
Update your vendors 1 to 3 months before you move
You don’t want to be missing any important necessities when you arrive at your new office, so let your vendors know well in advance so they can make the adjustments to your shipping and billing address. If you’ll need new furniture or a sign, order it now so that it has plenty of time to arrive and be arranged before your business makes the move.
Update your website, letterhead and business cards 1-2 weeks before moving
During the final week, it is imperative that everything be in place so that once employees enter the new office, they don’t have to spend too much time adjusting and can get back to business. Make sure the post office and clients are aware that a move is taking place and when. Finish or reschedule any last minute tasks including vendor deliveries, client meetings, or interviews.
