Middle Tennessee Helpful Relocation Tips

Moving is no picnic! But I've got a few tips and tricks that'll (hopefully) make the process go a little smoother. Here's what you'll need to do before you move.

Plan your move ahead of time

Begin planning your move at least a month or two before moving day arrives. The sooner you can pack and coordinate, the better. During this stage, be sure to...

  • Stock up on packing materials like boxes, tape, packing peanuts, and bubble wrap.
  • Start small by packing one room at a time so you stay organized and don't get overwhelmed.
  • Be selective about what you pack so you're not wasting time packing up things you don't even use or need.
  • Decide how you'll be moving, such as whether you'll be hiring a moving company or using a more DIY approach, like renting a Uhaul trailer.

Pack smart and stay organized

In the days and weeks leading up to your move, finish packing up your belongings into boxes. Don't forget to...

  • Label everything, including what room the box belongs in and what items are in it.
  • Pack fragile items last and be sure to wrap them up in bubble wrap, towels, or winter clothing for extra protection.
  • Pack heavier items separately to keep boxes from becoming overweighted and breaking or being too difficult to carry.

Stay organized through the move

On moving day, keep as much important information within reach as possible. That way, you'll have easy access to the essentials if you need to get to them quickly. Be sure to...

  • Prepare an "essentials" bag containing important personal information, such as toiletries, medications, and a change of clothes.
  • Create an "Open Me First" box with items you'll need right away, like cleaning supplies, toilet paper, soap, paper towels, and more.
  • Wait to unpack until after you've given your new home a thorough cleaning! Then, start with the most important rooms and work your way slowly through to stay organized and avoid burnout!
