Whether you are moving into a new home or office, moving can be stressful. Between packing up all your belongings, finding the right moving company, and trying to get settled in to your new space, the task often seems daunting.

Read on to check out our best moving and storing tips to make your move dead easy.

  1. Get rid of what you know you won’t use in the next place

The more unnecessary items you can get rid of from your home, the less stuff you’ll have to pack up, haul across town (or across the country), unload, and organize.

  1. Consider renting a storage unit

Maybe those items are unnecessary now (think that motorcycle that you can’t hang onto this winter, your RV, or just all the other stuff you accumulate over the years), but you don’t want them gone forever. A self-storage unit is the perfect solution.

  1. Pack your decorative items a few weeks out

Packing up art and decorative items a few weeks before the big move can save you a huge headache. Because these items tend to be fragile, they can be tricky to store. Having a bit of extra time to figure out how to ensure their safe packing is imperative in saving you time and money in the long run.

  1. Label your moving boxes

Labeling your moving boxes is key to finding your stuff easily. Labeling your boxes clearly (and even by category or room) will speed up your loading and unloading process.

This is a great tip if you plan to keep some of your belongings in a storage unit. Instead of having to dig through your unit in a few months when you need something, you’ll know right where to look.
