Moving Tips

Follow these tips for a smooth move!

MAKE A LIST

  • Decide whether you will inventory by room or type, don’t leave anything out

  • In four months will you have an occasion where you will wear that shirt or dress with the blue stripes?

  • Decide on a system to be used for packing, such as, color codes, numbers, pictures, etc

SAY GOODBYE TO UNUSED STUFF

  • Create a list of donating, ditch, or selling

  • Passwords or codes for your new address

  • Lockers at gym, school, work, use up food

  • Dispose of flammables, rugs, and drapes should be cleaned

GET STURDY, UNIFORM PACKING SUPPLIES

  • ​Put parts/cables out separately [loose cables and parts are some of the easiest things to lose during the move]

  • Data & medicine

  • Flash drives are recommended

PACK THE BASICS YOURSELF

  • Keep basic necessities separate so you can use it right away at your new address

  • Examples include soap, toothpaste, detergent, garbage bags, toilet papers, chargers, etc.

  • Pack like you are going on vacation
