Tips For A Stress-Free Move

Moving is stressful: packing up, carrying heavy boxes and furniture, unpacking. The challenges of moving also include stairs, small walkways, and tips for a stree-free san diego movedifficult spaces to navigate through. Here are five tips to make the move into your new San Diego home as stress-free as possible.

1. Measure

Measure your new space first. This includes all areas leading to the space like doorways. Know if your furniture will fit before you get there. Sometimes you will need to get creative if you run into a space that won’t fit your beloved couch. Knowing what space you have to work with helps ensures no surprises later.

2. Wrap Dishes in Clothing or Towels

Kill two birds with one stone on this one. Protect your dishes or other delicate items from breakage with your shirts or towels. This will help cut down on the amount of boxes you will have and make things easier when unpacking. It will also save you money on all that bubble wrap.

3. Take Apart Furniture

If you have items that come apart such as a bed, it is best to take them completely apart before you move them. Keep screws, washers, and bolts in a zip-lock bag that is then taped to the piece of furniture itself for storage. Having everything disassembled will help you move it quickly and easily in tighter spaces.

Knowing what is in each box helps you unpack easily. Try to keep like items in the same box. Label items in the box on the outside for a quick reference. It is also very helpful to label small items such as cords for easy use during unpacking. When you arrive at your new home, put the boxes in the appropriate room. It’s one less thing to do when unpacking.

5. Get a Good Deal on a Truck

Moving and truck companies change their prices based on dates of pickup and drop off as well as location. Check a few moving truck companies and try to be flexible around with your dates or locations. It may save you a lot of money to pick up the truck two days before your move, or to drop the truck off at a major location rather than a smaller one.

    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your head before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
    in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post
    to let you know. The design look great though!

    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos
