Use These Two Moving Tips

January 6, 2017

Today I came across a post from the Florida Association of Realtors titled 12 Tips to Make Moving Easier. Let me stop you here, the best way to make your move easier is to hire a moving company to truck your stuff wherever it needs to go. That will save you time and misery, not money. If you're trying to hold on to a few hundred or perhaps a few thousand (depending on how far you're headed) read on.

 

In the last ten years I have moved eighteen times. Moving can be exciting, like when you're moving to a new city, you've just landed a great job, or if you just closed on your first house. After a while, if you do it enough it becomes less and less appealing. The packing, the organizing, toting books, fitting the couch through the side door, and utilities--it's too much. Our absolute worst move was one where we literally moved around the corner. Instead of doing it all in one fell swoop with a U-Haul, we decided to walk boxes and fill up my old S-10, and do it little by little. In the words of Donald Trump, "a complete disaster." 

 

A simple read through the attachment below will for sure lessen the drudgery of your moving experience. If you follow none of them, at the very least abide by these two: 

 

1. No matter how small the move, use a U-Haul or Penske truck to get it done all at once. If you're moving in town it should cost no more than $50. When I moved from New Orleans to Lake Worth with a Penske, the total cost was around $800, including diesel. 

 

2. Get rid of stuff. When you move ask yourself as you're packing what you really need and actually use. A great read on letting your stuff go is Marie Condo's The Life Changing Magic of Tiding Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

 

Best of luck with your move and a new chapter in your life.
