Planning a big move? We must say, you’re already on the path to success because you’re reading up on ways to do it best. Just for you, we have four moving day tips and tricks of the trade from our storage experts that should help you feel more prepared and ready.

#1: Plan Your Move

Having a plan may seem like something most would do without even thinking, but too many people just forget and decided to “wing it.” Don’t be one of those people!

By putting together a moving day plan, you can save hours by avoiding the last-minute scrambles of grabbing and throwing your stuff into a car.

Have a plan in mind of what you want to keep, trash, and donate. Then, trash and donate what you need to. This way, you can more easily decide where everything you’re keeping needs to go.

#2: Start Packing Early

Feel like you have so much to do, with so little time? You’re not alone!

Even though it may seem impossible, you need to try and pack up as much as you can as soon as you know you’re moving.

Leading up to moving day, it helps to set aside at least 30 minutes a day to pack. That’s not too much to ask!

As you box things up, get them stacked and organized into groups according to the what is inside and where you would like it to go.

Not only will this help clear a path into and out of your home or office for moving day, but you it will also make you feel amazing to see your floors and countertops free of random stuff!

#3: Have a Storage Unit Ready

By planning your move and packing up early, you should get a good idea of how much stuff you really have. If you have too much stuff to fit into your new home or office, it’s time to looking into storing with a storage facility.

If you need help finding a storage unit in Little Rock, we recommend you start by asking your friends for recommendations and doing some Googling to find storage units near you with the best rates and reviews.

Once you find the best storage unit for your needs, go ahead and reserve it, fill out all the paperwork, pay your pro-rated rent, and pick up your keys so the unit is ready and waiting for you on moving day.

Having your storage unit prepared will give you peace of mind knowing exactly where your stuff is going. Any movers or friends helping you on moving day will also appreciate it, which brings us to the fourth and final moving day tip!

#4: Round Up Your Moving Crew

Point blank: we all know moving is not fun. What can make it easier, though, is having a crew of people you like helping you through your moving day.

As you plan your move and pack your stuff, start rounding up a crew of able-bodied people to help you with the hassle of moving. Hard labor is always more enjoyable with friends to keep you company!

You can also easily cut your loading and unloading time in half if you have a solid crew of family and friends to help you. Plus, if you store with us at Modern Storage, we have a moving truck all new customers can use for free.
