Tips from a Vero Beach Moving Company
We know moving can be stressful, especially during sudden economic changes. The best thing to do is remain calm, don't overwork yourself trying to accomplish too much in one day. Instead, take it one day at a time and set daily goals that won't overwhelm you.
Get A Head Start
There is a saying that Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance. Don't just plan for how to pack and move your belongings, plan for what happens when you unpack at your new home. Get a head start by staying organized and keeping items together that will stay together. Most importantly label your boxes on a few sides so you can read it even if it's hard to reach, making it easier to know where your belongings needed first are.
Donate Your Surplus Belongings
Moving often surprises people at just how much stuff they own and is a perfect time to go through clothes and other items that you no longer have use for and donate them to a nonprofit. In addition to supporting a good cause you also make the moving process a little easier when it comes to unpacking.
Keep the "little's" feet and those special paws out of the moving areas. The last thing you want when moving furniture around is to injure yourself or others. Be safe by minding your surroundings and getting a baby sitter or keeping the pets in another room with the door closed.
Seperate Your Valuables

Dates & Times Change - Schedule Cautiously
Moving is often a large undertaking including everything from transferring utilities to actually packing the truck. All of these tasks should be planned ahead of time to avoid any scheduling conflicts. The last thing you want is to get to your new home only to find out the power isn't on yet.
Schedule these last but don't forget!
Transfer all utilities and mail to your new address. The USPS allows mail forwarding from your old address for up to 30 days, more in certain situations. As mentioned before, be sure to have ALL of your utilities set up ahead of time and, if possible, do a walk-thru to make sure everything is in working order.
