Moving Day Essentials: How to Survive the Big Day

Washington Hard Money Lenders Make Real Estate Moves Easier

Whether you’re relocating across town or across the country, packing up and moving from point A to point B can be stressful and disruptive. And if you’re a real estate investor or house flipper, you likely move more frequently than most people. It takes time, effort, patience, and organizational skills to pull off any move successfully.

These essential moving day tips will help get you organized, packed and moved with a little less stress.

8 Tips for a Stress-Free Moving Day

  1. The sooner you begin, the more in control you’ll be. Start the process of sorting, purging and packing at least four weeks in advance to ease the load – and the stress – of moving.
  2. Get organized now. Create a master list that details all your moving “to do’s,” from scheduling the movers to last-minute packing. This must-have checklist will be a valuable go-to.
  3. The more you get rid of, the less you’ll have to pack and move. Declutter, sort, donate and organize, room by room. You can pack seasonal, decorative, and infrequently used items.
  4. Put together a well-stocked packing supply kit. Include tape and tape guns, markers, packing paper, bubble wrap and markers. Gather sturdy moving boxes and be sure you have a tool kit handy.
  5. Start fully packing about a week before moving day. To keep things organized and streamline unpacking on the other end, pack room by room, labeling boxes clearly (bedroom, kitchen, etc).
  6. You may think while packing that you’ll remember where things are. But label everything, by room and by category. Label “essential” boxes that you’ll need immediately in your new space.
  7. Have a bag with important documents, valuables, and prescriptions to carry with you personally on moving day.

Stay rested and dehydrated throughout your move. Soon you’ll be settled in your new space.
