Moving Tips

*This is a sponsored post by TriState Moving & Storage **
So recently I moved from Maine to Maryland and I have to tell you I have moved about 5 times or more since I was 21. As instead of going to college and working on my career I was out seeing the USA and having fun along with learning a lot along the way.  I lived my career and found I did not need a degree to work in the medical field as a receptionist which I learned so much about orthopedics, detox centers, general surgery, etc.

But as you know moving is hard as you can’t always take everything with you so you need to figure out ways to downsize which means getting rid of clothes you no longer wear, furniture you can’t take which you can get rid of by having a yard sale,  selling online, donating to local charities, and more.

I know when I move I like to plan a bit on the size trailer I can afford to take along with pricing did you know moving in the summer costs more for a trailer then moving in September? I did not know that until my last move which was in September and the trailer was cheap and I asked why they said because the summer is more expensive and the fall is cheaper I found that to be very interesting. So I figured out what size trailer I could afford to take and planned my furniture, household items, clothes, etc around that and downsized what I could not take.

You will need to pack things you know you do not need if you know you will not be moving for a few weeks or even months you may want to pack holiday decorations from Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and Easter. You can also pack clothes that you do not wear and shoes if you are moving in the summer you do not need winter clothes or boots.

Pack things tightly with a sturdy box which offers scant protection if it’s too empty or too full. Surround your items, even the stout stuff, with plenty of packing peanuts, crumpled newspapers, bubble wrap or disposable air bags. If your shipment is on the fragile side, consider using towels or a blanket to provide extra secure packaging. Remember to have just as much packing protection under your item as you do on and around it. If a boxed item is flopping around inside when you pick it up, it is not packed tight enough. If you are unable to do this yourself then you can hire someone to do it and TriState Moving & Storage does this as well.

Make sure to label the boxes so you can find things after you move I did not do this so well on my first move and I had to go through every box just to find what I was looking for and if you have 50 or more boxes it is a tough job to search each one so label and label some more to ensure you can find what you are looking for.

Hire a moving company such as TriState Moving & Storage which are VIP movers that go the extra mile, they have  three principles  Honesty: Always follow through with the promises they make to their customers. Artisanship: Go above and beyond; what’s merely adequate always strive to be the best at what they do. 

Industriousness: When they have a choice between making things easier for ourselves and offering the best service possible, they choose the latter. Respect: Treat our customers and employees the way we would want to be treated. They will give you a quote and also have supplies to pack with too.

They will make things easier as when I moved the last time I was on my own after driving 14 hours I had to unload the trailer by myself and not sure how I did it and the next day I was so sore I could barely move it was awful having to do it all myself not to mention slowly unpacking things. Next time I move in Maryland I am thinking about Commercial Movers in Rockville, MD  who is located near me.
