Don’t Ignore Your Dressers

You’ve hired long distance movers, you think you have everything packed (even though it took longer than expected), and your big move is tomorrow. But, in your haste, perhaps you didn’t remove all of your belongings from your dressers. Thinking everything will be ‘okay’ inside dresser drawers is a common mistake people make. First of all, even things like clothing can weigh a dresser down, and if you have fragile items, they can get tossed around in the move, and break easily.

Always remove all items from dresser drawers. If you can, even remove the drawers themselves to make the dresser lighter when you’re moving it around. It’s a small detail, but it can make a big difference!

Label Boxes by Room

Hiring a moving company can save you a lot of stress when it comes to getting your items from one place to another. But, once the movers leave, and you’re looking over a house full of boxes, imagine how much easier it will be to unpack if everything is labeled by room. Take a few extra minutes when packing to label everything as specifically as possible. You’ll be thankful you did when you’re looking for your coffee pot the morning after you’ve moved!

Pack an ‘Essentials’ Box

Speaking of things you’ll want to find right away, be sure to pack an ‘essentials’ box and label it accordingly. This should be a box that includes things you’ll need/want to use right away after arriving in your new home. If it contains important items, you don’t want to spend hours searching around for them. A little extra labeling can go a long way.

These are just a few tips that are often ‘overlooked’ when it comes to a move - especially a long-distance move. There are plenty more to think about, and you’ll likely be able to come up with some of your own with just a little bit of time and extra effort. Making your moving experience easier on yourself, and pay attention to the details as much as possible.
