Moving day is always stressful. There are so many things to coordinate. And it's something that most people will have to deal with over and over again in their lives. The average American moves 11.4 times during his or her lifetime.
For us, that means business is booming. At Gordon Jensen Trucking & Storage, we've been in the business for decades. We've helped generations of Utahns move to and from Salt Lake City. We're familiar with many of the pitfalls of moving, and we have plenty of strategies for avoiding them.
We've got tips to make your move easier.
There are some great, easy ways that people can make moving less painful. It's a good idea to get organized, consolidate when packing and use lists on moving day.
- Organize: Getting organized can be a big help when moving. Find a way to group items together and label them. This can be done with color-coding, by labeling boxes carefully, or both. It's also a great idea to make diagrams of the new home, and where items might fit.
- Consolidate: Instead of spending tons of money on packing materials, find ways to use household items in packing. For example, wrap dishes in dish towels. This will save space, time and money.
- Lists: On moving day, it's easy to get caught up in the moment and forget little things. A great corrective for this is to make lists. Whether it's a paper checklist, a note on a smartphone, or both, lists can be a huge help during a move.
