Moving day doesn’t have to be a stressful experience if you follow these five steps:
Now’s the time to determine which items you don’t need or use. Take a good hard look at items stored in closets, attics, basements, and garages. Do they serve only to collect dust or are rarely used? If so, now’s the time to decide what goes and what stays. If you need a hand with junk removal, the team at 1-833-GET-BINS can quickly remove your unwanted items from any location. This will help you handle other aspects of your move that can’t be outsourced.
- Donate as much as possible
The less you have on moving day, the easier it is, but this doesn’t mean you have to throw everything out. Most of what you want to get rid of can be donated. Books, toys, appliances, furniture, clothing, and more can be donated to most thrift stores. Old linens and towels can also be donated to animal shelters to use for animal bedding. You can also donate canned goods and sealed, unopened products to food banks and homeless shelters.
- Organization is key
Moving doesn’t have to be chaotic! Label containers and boxes to make unpacking painless at your new home, and keep papers and documents in labeled folders during the move. These simple steps will save you a lot of stress and time when you move.
- Prepare pets for change
If your move involves long-distance travel, contact your vet for advice regarding suggestions to make comfortable. Make your home more welcoming by bringing your pet’s favorite toys, bedding, or blanket from their crate or carrier. Don’t forget to update pet tags with your new address.
- Update your personal information
Update your personal information on all documents and accounts as close to the date of your move as possible. Don’t forget to redirect your mail and arrange utility connections well in advance of your move-in date.
These five tips will help your move be smooth and stress-free. If you need help removing your unwanted items, call 1-833-GET-BINS. We’ll handle your moving day disposal and get rid of all your unwanted junk.
