First things first, download our free moving checklist. It outlines a countdown of important tasks to complete leading up to your move out date.

Start Early

Start packing early! Its never too early to begin the process. High volume items that you don't often use is a great place to start. A few boxes a day should be ideal.

Gather Supplies

Take note of the packing materials you'll need and begin acquiring them. A few examples are boxes (different sizes), packing tape, markers, labels and stretch wrap are a few examples

Time To Downsize

Declutter! No sense in packing items you no longer have use for. Consider any items that may not make the move and form a plan to either donate, resell or trash. You'd be surprised at how much you've collected

Pack Room-By-Room

While keeping in mind least used items should be packed first, also be sure to focus on one room at a time. Overall organization and minimization of lost items are the benefit here.

Label Everything

Chances are you are familiar with the layout of your destination. Take a few extra seconds to label every box with instructions on its new final resting place. Color coding with stickers maybe quicker, but labeling with a marker is equally as effective

Use Moving Boxes

Sure you can save yourself a few dollars by using used boxes from convenience stores and markets. However, you will save time by using boxes meant for moving. Their sizes are more uniform which increases load efficiency and they're often more sturdy

Dual Purpose Items

For extra padding when packing fragile items, protect them by using bath towels, pillow cases and even socks. No sense in putting items in their own box when the can be used for another purpose!

Use Clear Bins

As it gets closer to your move out date and you need to pack your more frequently used items, use clear bins. This will make them easy and quick to find in case you need to temporary remove them
