Tips For an Organized Move
- Moving can be a stressful event. Moving all of your belongings from one home to another is no small feat. North Main provides storage in Manteca CA to take care of all your storage needs on your move but it’s also important to stay organized throughout the process. Here are just a few tips that may come in handy when it comes to staying organized during the move.
Keep a Planner
A planner can be crucial to staying organized during your move. Even if you’ve never used a planner or notebook before, we recommend trying it out because it really does help you stay organized. This gives you a place to write down your plans, keep phone numbers of various places such as your storage location and movers, and also helps you create to-do lists to check off. Make sure you find one with a pouch to store receipts and business cards.
Have a Survival Box
A survival box basically consists of all the essentials that you’re going to need on that first night in the home. You don’t want to have to worry about digging through boxes to find something the night you move in so make sure to put everything you need into the survival box and keep it in your car until you’re moved in. Things like toilet paper, snacks, blankets, personal hygiene items, first aid kits, and flashlights should go into this box.
We understand that putting a label on every single box can be time consuming but we promise it will be worth it when it’s time to unpack. Make sure to label all sides of each box so that you know exactly which room to put each box in when unloading. This will make unpacking each room a lot easier on you.
Put Screws and Nails in Bags
If you have lots of furniture to take apart, things could get pretty confusing with all of those little screws and nails. Solve the problem by setting aside a Ziploc bag for each piece of furniture and then labeling it with a piece of tape and a sharpie. Once you have all of your bags, keep them together as to not lose any small pieces.
- We hope these tips make your move hassle-free. If you need storage in Manteca CA, give us a call and we’d be happy to set you up with a storage unit to keep your belongings safe.
