Are you pulling your hair out, trying to move efficiently while in a time crunch? In a perfect world, you would have plenty of time to plan and execute a move. Sometimes, however, time is not available. Here are some tips for how you can do it without losing your sanity.
Make and prioritize a list of things you need to do. Include items like the electric company, phone, and cable company.
Completing a room at a time helps with organization and alleviates overwhelm.
Organize three piles: pack, give away, throw away. Don’t move anything that you don’t need. You might not have time to assess every item, but purging and culling can lighten the load.
Try to have everything you need on hand, so you don’t have to stop to run out and buy more.
Color coding helps with the unpacking at your new home. When you get there, you will know exactly where each box belongs, saving time and avoiding searching and moving things around.
Create a box of necessities and keep it with you in your car instead of the moving truck. If something goes wrong, you will have this box with you. The box should include prescriptions, cell phones, eyeglasses – whatever you need if you must do without your things for a day or two.
Stay focused on the tasks at hand and plan meticulously. Be calm and don’t let panic take over.

You have done your research and settled on a professional moving company. The problem is, you feel anxious because you don’t know how they work. We’re here to help. Here’s what to expect from professional movers.
A good moving company will assess your home and your belongings and give you a quote for your move. This allows them to plan for the amount of truck space and the number of movers needed for your relocation. It also allows you to plan your budget accordingly.
As professionals, movers should be punctual and alert you if there are any delays. You can expect them to come in branded vehicles big enough to accommodate all of your belongings.
Before moving, pro movers will apply precautionary measures. They will bring along equipment such as dollies, floor runners, furniture pads, carpet protectors, and thick moving blankets to protect your flooring and your belongings.
Your movers will load everything on the truck properly securing the heavy items with straps to prevent shifting. Be sure to do a final walk-through to ensure that they didn’t miss anything or leave anything behind.
You have arrived in your new place. What happens now? The movers will unload your possessions, and you will confirm if anything is missing or damaged. They will put boxes in the right rooms if the boxes are appropriately marked and will help to make sure the furniture is where you want it.
You don’t have to go it alone when it comes to your residential move. Get the peace of mind and security that comes with hiring a professional moving company. Contact the experienced experts at Nilson Van and Storage to get a quote for your upcoming move.
Moving your business is a big job, be it a local or long-distance move. How do you handle it smoothly and safely? Below are some little-known safety tips to follow:
Planning is critical and it’s the key to moving success. You can create a plan yourself or involve your employees, which helps eliminate last minute panics. The key is to plan carefully and plan early. As soon as you decide to relocate, it’s time to start planning the move.
When choosing a professional mover, be sure to choose an insured company, because accidents happen. To avoid them as much as possible, be sure the moving company has experience moving your type of business and the types of furniture, items, electronics, and equipment that you use to run your business.
Being organized prevents a moving nightmare. When everything is properly marked, it allows the efficient retrieval of things in the new location. You can do this by marking the packing boxes and including a brief description of the contents.
Computers are delicate and deserve proper handling. When possible, pack them in their manufacturer’s boxes. Be sure your movers know how to handle this type of equipment properly. Cables and cords should be appropriately labeled and stored in zip-locked bags. This will help keep the right cables with the right electronic equipment and can prevent a tangled mess when you get to your new location.
