How to Do More Packing and Preparing For A Move In Less Time

Are you packing to move in a rush? When you’re on a tight deadline, and you have to get everything out, your stress can skyrocket as you wonder how you’ll get things done. While this task can be challenging, it doesn’t have to be as difficult as you may think. There are many ways you can make things easier, especially when it comes to packing and preparing. If you haven’t already used the tips below, incorporate them into your prep, and you’ll be ready to move before you know it.

1. Use What You Have

If you don’t have time to buy packing supplies and carefully wrap your belongings, use what you have. Towels can easily cover plates, socks can hold silverware, and clothes can cover other breakables. This won’t only save you time, but it will also save you money, all without putting your items at risk of breaking. Another great way to save time is to use boxes you have around the house to pack belongings. Even boxes from deliveries can be re-purposed as long as they’re in good shape.


2. Keep Clothes Hanging

When it comes to packing clothes that are hanging, don’t bother taking them down and folding them. Instead, use a rubber band to tie a group of hangers (with clothes on them) together. After this, cut a hole in the bottom of a trash bag and place it over the group of clothes you just tied together. Either hang these in a wardrobe box or carefully fold them in a group and place into a box.

3. Make Fast Decisions

A time crunch when moving means you need to make quick decisions when it comes to packing your things. If you don’t use or need something, place it in a box for donation or the trash. Give yourself three seconds to decide for each item, and you’ll be able to get through your entire home in no time. If you have a lot of things to donate or throw away, make sure you plan out a day for them to be picked up before you leave.

4. Don’t Overthink

Overthinking when packing can cost you hours of precious time when you need to get out of your house. The goal is to simply get everything moved into boxes, so don’t stress about organization and detailed labeling. While you should write the room on the side of the box, you don’t have to be more detailed than that. You can sort everything out once you get to your destination and have time to spend organizing.

5. Forward Your Mail

The easiest way to make sure you get your mail is by forwarding it. Fortunately, you can do this online with the United States Post Office in just a few minutes. However, don’t forget to change your official address once you move to ensure you continue to receive your mail once forwarding has ended.

6. Recruit Help Near Me

Whether you hire movers or friends, help can cut down the time it takes to pack your things by hours or even days. Even if you just have help with disassembling furniture, the extra hands can make all the difference.


Beating Your Deadline to Move

Packing in a rush can easily be done if you put your mind and maximum effort into it. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and avoid procrastinating to ensure you stay on track. Fortunately, with the tips above, the ask will be easier, and you can get to your destination on time.

10 Habits of the Top-Producing Real Estate Agents

Whether you’re trying to buy or sell a house, or you have ambitions of becoming a real estate agent, it pays to understand what distinguishes the top agents from the mediocre ones. Here are ten habits that you will tend…

How To Help Your Client Prepare For Moving Into A New Home

There’s nothing quite like the magic of watching new homeowners’ faces as you hand them the keys to their new house. It’s like watching a child’s face on Christmas morning as he tears into brightly wrapped boxes.

A possible snag to this glorious day is that your clients may not know how to move in. They will turn to you, their trusty real estate agent, for tips. Well, here they are, so let the move-in begin!


1. Give Them A Calendar And Mark Two Months From Moving Date

Your clients might have never moved before, or they could be veteran movers. It always helps to organize a move on paper before the real work begins. You’ll need to designate aspects two months out such as:

  • Decide if they will do it themselves or hire a moving company
  • If they hire a moving company, they’ll need to get quotes from Las Vegas moving companies and book it two months out
  • Sort their things into “keep” boxes, and “donate-or-Salvation Army” boxes
  • Gather important papers, pictures, and precious keepsakes into a box that will go with them in the car

2. Mark On The Calendar One Month From Moving Date

One month out is when the real work begins. Your clients will need boxes, bubble wrap, labels or markers, and packing tape. They will also need:

  • To cancel or forward any publications
  • To get the bank, insurance, medical and dental, school records if they have kids and any other records that will need transferring
  • To alert the utility companies as well as cable, Internet and any landline phones to the move date
  • To change of address with the post office, credit card companies, and banks
  • To begin packing an “Open First” box, filled with personal hygiene items, a change of clothes, shoes, paper plates, plastic utensils, paper towels, bath towels, soap, shampoo, bath paper, trash bags, and snacks.

3. Three Weeks From Moving Date

  • Either digitally or on a piece of paper, make up a master list of packed boxes and which rooms they go into in the new house. Going from room to room, pack it out.
  • Label the boxes on all four sides as well as the top and bottom. Place the boxes in an unused room for ease of loading the truck.
  • Notify whoever will take care of the kids and any pets during the move.
  • Begin emptying the fridge and freezer. Whatever you don’t eat before moving day, pack in a cooler with ice to go with you in the car.

4. One Week From Moving Day

This is the most hectic week. Your clients are too stressed to remember something. Mark their calendar so they will confirm the moving date with the moving company and alert whoever will watch the kids and pets.

  • Set aside what movers won’t transport such as half-full paint cans, paint thinners, and gasoline powered items like the leaf blower. These will go in the car.
  • Notify a cleaning company to clean the house after the truck is loaded.


5. Moving Day

Remember to take food, because everything will be packed up. Go from room to room making sure nothing is left behind. After the cleaners have cleaned the house, leave the keys on the kitchen counter and lock the doors.


Happy moving!
