Although we might make it look easy (or at least try to), there’s no denying that home moving is quite the endeavor.
We’ve helped customers move for almost 40 years now, so we’ve seen a thing or two in the world of home moving, and we thought we could answer some commonly asked “How-To” moving questions to help you through the process!
Staying Organized During a Move
If there’s one mindset you should take with you into a move, it’s the goal of staying organized. Being organized and prepared in advance of moving day will go a long way in helping to alleviate the stress you might feel trying to get ready for everything. The best way to stay organized? A moving checklist. We’ve covered the steps on how to build your own moving checklist here.
How To Pack
Efficient packing is a crucial step in any move. Doing it the right way will make your life much easier, and that’s all everyone wants, right? Start packing a few weeks out from moving day to allow yourself time to chip away at the process slowly. By taking your time and going room-by-room or by designated areas throughout the home, you’ll avoid getting overwhelmed and leave yourself some room for error.

We all like saving money, and there are ways to do so with your final bill when hiring professional movers. We mentioned organization above, but it’s relevant here again, as being prepared and organized can help you save money. Many professional moving companies like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK charge by the hour, so there are little things you can do like having all of your belongings in one central location to cut down on the amount of time the movers have to navigate around your home, which in return will cut down on the total move time.

How much does it cost to move? That answer can vary! The best way to figure out the cost of your move is to contact a professional moving company and get a free moving quote. Be as honest as possible with the amount of items you’ll be moving, the size and layout of your home, and any other important details so they are able to give you an accurate assessment.

Preparing for Moving Day
First and foremost, make sure you have a day of the move bag ready with anything you might need like toiletries, chargers, extra clothing, and snacks. Since most of your belongings will be packed away, you’ll want this to avoid having to dig through moving boxes.
Be prepared for the movers’ arrival by placing all packed items in a central location such as by the front door or in the garage. This will create a clear path for the movers to go from your home to the truck and back.
