How To Move Quickly In A Short Amount Of Time

How To Move Quickly In A Short Amount Of Time

Facing an unexpected move?  Or maybe your life’s busy with kids and work, and your pending move snuck up on you?  Follow these tips for packing your belongings in no time.

Now’s the time to purge.  Even though you’re short on time, that doesn’t mean you should just pack everything you own.  You’ll spend more time packing and unpacking items that you probably didn’t need anyway.  Instead, be ruthless with your packing.  Go room to room and sort items as donations, items to throw away, and items to pack.  If you haven’t used something in the past year, throw it away or donate it if it’s in good condition.  This is where you should spend the bulk of your time.

Ask for help.  You don’t have time to call around for quotes from packing companies, so now’s the time to call in friends and family to help.  With your decluttered and refined amount of belongings, a group of you should be able to pack your home in no time. Even better, your friends and family may want to take a few of your items off your hands in exchange for helping.

Buy professional moving supplies.  Investing in moving boxes, papers, and tape will protect your belongings.  Even though you’re short on time, you still need to pack everything, and doing it in the proper way will save a lot of frustration and disappointment on the other end of your move.
