Moving to a new home can be exciting, but it can also be hard on kids. It can be upsetting and make them feel a little lost in the shuffle. When you pack for them, be sure to mark their boxes so you can unpack them first. Setting up a new room right away can make them feel at home. Also, be sure to pack essential separately so you can carry them with you instead of putting them in the moving van. This can include special toys or stuffed animals, blankets, or books.

Are you preparing for a big move? Why not tackle spring cleaning too? Here are four tips from the pros to help you clean and prep for your move at the same time.
Decluttering is always on the spring-cleaning to-do list, and it should be on the move prep list as well. Go through your drawers and closets and pull out things that no longer fit, that you no longer use, or that you don’t want anymore. Sell or donate these items to lighten the load for your move.
As you pack your belongings, dust and wipe them down before you put them in boxes. You don’t want to unpack dusty, dirty items when you get to your new home. Cleaning as you go will mean you’ll have a cleaner home when you get to your destination and unpack.
Lots of people pay for move-out cleaning. Instead of packing and leaving things dirty, clean as you go, and you’ll leave a clean house behind and save money not using professional cleaning.
Spring cleaning usually includes getting organized. This is especially important if your spring cleaning goes hand in hand with a move. Get organized now, so your home and belongings are not in chaos when you get to your new home.
Getting tips from the pros can make a huge difference in how smoothly your move goes. At Nilson Van and Storage, our goal is to make sure your move goes off without a hitch. Contact us today to schedule your move, and for all the resources you need for a move that is simple and stress-free.
