From the moment you find out you’re moving to when you finally unpack the last box, it can seem like a whirlwind. There’s so much to get done and just not enough hours in a day. It can be stressful and overwhelming to go it alone…so don’t! The Memphis residential movers at Black Tie Moving have been moving families for years and know a thing or two about a smooth relocation. Instead of letting the stress and pressure of a move wear you down, check out these tips:

  • Schedule Your Move ASAP- This might seem silly or unnecessary depending on how far away your move is, but you will never regret having it scheduled early. If you are moving in the summer, there is a chance you won’t get a mover if you want until the last minute. Go ahead and book now so you don’t have to worry later.
  • Lighten the Load- The best way to make packing and unpacking easy is to reduce the amount you are moving. Most people have a lot of items that they don’t use, need, or even like anymore. Don’t hang on to it just for fun. Give unwanted items to charity or try to sell them in a garage sale. If you’re wondering if it should stay or go, ask yourself if you’ve used it in a year and if it’s the worth the hassle of moving.
  • Dual Purpose Packing- Reduce the amount of boxes you need as well as packing material by using items you already have to move. For example, use towels and shirts as padding for your breakable. Socks are great for stuffing into cups and mugs for cushion. Ask your mover if you can keep your dresser drawers full and just wrap with plastic wrap to seal. These will help reduce the amount of stuff you have to relocate and cost of materials.

These are just a few tips to help maximize your time and budget for a move. You can lighten the workload even more with the help of Black Tie’s Concierge Services. They offer everything from packing to utility transfers to organizing your new home.
