Whether renting a moving van, shipping a container or hiring professional movers, it’s important to begin preparations at least two months before your move.
Burn calories, alleviate stress and breathe easier (quite literally) with a healthy dose of spring cleaning. No sense in moving your dust bunnies cross country – so dedicate yourself to a fresh start with a good ol’ fashioned sweep and mop.
You can significantly cut the weight of your moving load by ridding your home of clutter and kitsch before you start packing. Old magazines, books, and curios are a good place to start. Many of these items can either be donated or recycled.
Start your packing process by collecting supplies and boxes. Make sure your cardboard boxes are durable enough to survive a cross country move.
