Packing & Moving


Well we did it!
We moved into our New Home.
Although I wouldn't say we're all moved in just yet.  We have furniture and boxes everywhere.   It's very chaotic around here, but everyday it gets a little bit more organized.
I can't wait to have it all put together.

There has been a few little hiccups along the way, had to convert our 3 prong dryer into a 4 prong dryer to fit into the correct socket.  We had to fix a leaky outdoor faucet, we lost a dresser in the move, it fell over and got busted up.  We had to get all of our utilities all hooked up, and we're just trying to learn all of the quirks that come with a new house.

But we love it here.
I wake up every morning feeling so Lucky to get to live in this awesome home.


Ok so since we just made this big move, I thought I'd share some tips that worked for us.
Now our situation was a little different. We only moved 30 minutes away, and since Jake was driving out here to go to work everyday, and I was coming out to work on the house, we would both pack up our cars with a lot of  the little stuff.  This actually made a huge difference in the end.  All that was left was the furniture, and we moved it all in a big U-haul truck.  I just have to add,  Jake and I made this whole moving trip all by ourselves.  We were Rockstar Movers! Well I guess us and our Dolly.

So Tip #1 is to rent a dolly with your truck.  I don't know if we could have done this move without it.


Tip #2
I was surprised by how little of boxes we used.
Instead, I used what we already had, like; Suitcases, coolers, drawers, baskets, laundry baskets, bags, garbage sacks and plastic bins.
The bins were the most handy,  we would unload them at the new house and then bring them back to fill up again.

Tip #3
Instead of bubble wrap or newspaper, I used our towels, table cloths and linens to wrap things up.
I also used cheap paper plates in between all of my kitchen plates to help  protect them.

Tip #4
Stuff hanging clothes into garbage sacks while still on the hangers.
This helps to keep clothes all together, and then they are all ready to hang up in your new closet.


Tip# 5
Clean your new bathrooms ahead of time, if possible.  At the end of a long moving day, nothing is better then taking a hot shower in a clean bathroom.  Also don't forget to stock them with toilet paper.

Tip #6
Clean kitchen cabinets ahead of time, if possible.  It's amazing how much kitchen stuff we have.  I made organizing the kitchen the first thing to do on my list.  It was nice to get it all out of the way and have a working kitchen right away.

Tip #7
Pack your food up,  or make a trip to the grocery store.  Have easy to eat meals on hand so you don't have to eat out too much.

Tip #8 
Make your beds up as soon as possible.  You'll be glad you did after a long day of moving.

Tip #9
If moving with  kids, make sure to have snacks on hand.  Let them help out, my boy's got a kick out of caring things out to the big truck.  And just remember moving is a lot on a little one, so be patient and understanding with them.

Tip #10
Pack a special bag with items you will need right away, such as; toiletries, toothbrushes,  and medications.  Carry this bag with you and find a place for it as soon as you get to your new location.  You don't want to have to go searching for these things.

So these are my moving tips.  If you have any more to add, feel free to leave them in a comment below.

Once things get a bit more "Normal" around here,  I'll blog about my new painted kitchen cabinets.

Thanks for stopping by,
Emily

  2. Hi, Emily. Congratulations on your move! My hubby and I moved last August from a large house in the suburbs to a small cottage by a lake, so I can relate to all the joys of moving. We also did all the moving ourselves. I just found your blog and LOVE your style choices in decorating! We've already done some changes to our little cottage, but have lots of other things we want to do to make it our own. It's fun to be creative and think of what you can do in each room! I am following your posts, as I am excited to see what you will be doing to your adorable new abode!

  4. Those are great tips-I used most of them to make the move this summer. The one other thing I did which helped so much is to go to the store and get several larger size boxes of Press-n-Seal. We used it on dresser drawers to keep stuff in and put drawers back in once dresser in truck. Then I used it for every little thing, from kitchen gadget drawers to earring and necklace trees. Everything arrived intact even if jostled and clean.I will never move again without it ;-)

    2. Fantastic tips here. I especially agree with #10-have an overnight bag for the day of the move. And I'd expand on #5. Bring TP and a new shower curtain liner. Nothing sucks more than getting to the end of the day and not having one of those (from experience).

      The tip above is also a great idea. I have used cling wrap like that in the past but press-n-seal sounds like it would work even better. Another tip I'd add is have lots of sandwich bags handy. If you take something apart of if something has special hanging hardware (mirrors, curtain rods, etc.), put the small pieces in a bag and tape it to the big piece.

    3. Things to Consider in Choosing a Moving Company:

      When you think about it, moving is an important milestone in your life. You leave memories of a former life and create a new beginning. Your mind is preoccupied with the wonderful possibilities before you in your new location. The last thing you need in this big day is a harrowing experience with a sloppy moving company.

      Moving. What could go wrong? The horror stories are everywhere. Late arrivals of the movers. Your prized possessions mysteriously getting lost. Expensive furniture suddenly damaged. Hidden charges popping out of some unreadable fine-print in the contract. And the list goes on.

      Clearly there is a need to distinguish which moving company can really deliver your requirements professionally and stress-free.

      Moving is a matter of trust. Just last August 2012, a total of 25 unlicensed moving companies in New Jersey alone were charged following an undercover sting operation. These companies were known to hold the customer’s properties as hostage, extorting thousands of dollars more than the previously agreed-on price. One moving company sent a truck that was uninsured, while another sent a vehicle that was unsafe and unfit for the streets. Even more dangerously, several movers were even wanted on outstanding warrants. It is therefore crucial that the moving company you choose is licensed and insured, just like BP Express Moving Company.

      A background check wouldn’t hurt. Fly-by-night moving companies may smooth-talk you into attractive deals, but later turn your moving experience into a horrible nightmare. The inefficiency may not be intended, but quite understandable for greenhorn moving companies that pretend to know what they are doing.. If the movers have been around for a long time, however, they are more likely to have gained the proficiency ideal for your job requirements. BP Express Moving Company is a family owned firm that has a proven track record in the moving business for more than 30 years now. With the wealth of material that must be packed, moved, and unpacked, you certainly would want a firm like BP Express Moving Company to handle your possessions with their usual professional care and composure.

      Consider your location. There is an advantage with contracting a local company for your moving needs. The movers can get to you sooner, and should expectedly be familiar with the local transportation peculiarities of the area. Should there be any dispute that would arise later on, it helps if the moving company can be reached locally. Interstate jurisdiction over court cases can be problematic.

  5. Congrats to the whole family, Emily! I enjoyed reading this! I actually just made a big move on my own -- opening my own law firm. It's funny, I started taking home files and pictures everyday for a few weeks in anticipation kind of like how you all did. It made the final packing process so much easier! Anyway, congrats, and I would love to see you all one day!

  6. Congratulations on your new house! While reading through your tips, It reminded me of what I did when I used to move houses. I did almost everything wrong! Cleaning my bathroom ahead of time was supposed to be the first on my list. Now, I’ve learned my lesson, so the next time I need to move, I'll keep in my all the tips you posted here.

  11. When packing some things like binders and books we still used regularly, we placed the boxes on their sides on the shelves and counters and left them open. That way, we still had easy access, but they were still packed. The night before our move we just closed and taped what was still open.
    Another handy tip: Don't just write the room on the box, write what items are inside in smaller print.

  12. For #3, I use all of my saved grocery bags! When you know a move is.coming, save them. I wrap each plate, glass, everything breakable in my bags. They are perfect to roll up a candle in and then put it in a bag and roll that up as well. Extra protection and FREE! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. And for #4, I did the garbage bag trick when I moved also. But, I bought cheap bags and put holes in the bottom, put my hangers through the hole, and tied the bag at the bottom of the clothes. This ensures that all of the clothes are covered and secure, but the hangers are available to lift the bag with. :)

    1. I love all the tips and have used many myself moving... I would like to add this note, when using garbage bags, be sure to use clear (leaf type bags) or semi-sheer, not black. I have lost far to many clothes, blankets, and other items because somebody was being helpful and took the "garbage" out.

      Delete
    2. I always used #4 tip with garbage bags upside down with a hole, then draw the tie shut keeps everything clean and neat. i also use them to pack lamp shade that are odd sized to keep them from being smudged.

  14. We've used rubber bands instead of bags for clothes. the biggest help we had with our many moved is to get as many colors of masking or painters tape as you have rooms in the new house. when packing boxes it just takes two strips of tape on the corner of the boxes & then a piece of tape on the door frame in the house and EVERYONE will know what room the box belongs to. use drawers from dressers to pack things - I covered the tops of my drawers with a paper bag & taped down. keep drawers out of furniture when you move them it greatly reduces the weight & gives you extra grab holes. also purchase the dolly - I use mine A LOT! I can fill my trash can extra full and don't have to worry about carrying a heavy bag outside I just put the can on the dolly & roll it outside to the big can.

  16. CONGRATS on your new home!!! How exciting it is. We just moved into this new home in Oct. so I know what you mean, and I did alot of your tips too. However, we had lived in our previous house for 29 years so have ALOT of stuff!!1 Probably between 200 and 300 boxes came here and that is after FILLING a dumpster at the old house before packing! I also labeled EVERY box with the room it went to and then put an 8 by 10 sheet of paper on the doorframe of each rrom so our helpers knew just where to take each box. It worked GREAT! I found you via Pinterest. XO, Pinky

  17. I number my boxes, then keep a detailed list of what's in them. If you have several boxes marked "Kitchen" that's helpful, but being specific helped me when unpacking!

    1. Ironically, I do this with my three daughter's Christmas presents to make sure nothing is forgotten. This is a great idea though. An inventory is a wonderful ideal to keep track of belongings, especially if it was paired with the colored tape idea.

  18. Great tips thanks! I will be moving soon and plan to pack our suitcases full the weekend before the move with everything that we will need for that week (toiletries, work clothes, etc.) so that we can have EVERYTHING else boxed up and ready to move Saturday morning. (Of course with the exception of a few plates and other living essentials. Hope it all works as planned.

  19. Pack up a mini tool kit to have handy as well!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great tips! As a young adult I moved every year (sometimes twice a year) for 10 years. Beer boxes are the best. They have handles and can carry heavy items, especially books. You can also get them free from the bar or liquor store.
    I also always make a necessity bag: a roll of paper towel, all purpose cleaner, toilet paper, shower curtain, garbage bags, small tool box, dish soap, dishcloth, towel, etc. I throw it all in a reusable grocery bag and unpack it first.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Tip #3 and #4 are just brilliant. I am moving in the next few weeks so this is perfect timing. I would never have thought of that at all.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I used my towels for my breakable and better than paper plates use your kitchen towels to separate the plates. The one thing i liked about when i moved a year ago is that i prioritized what i can take over to my new place, what i wanted like the books and movie that i don't need on a daily basis. Cause when it came down to the last week of the move all i had was the everyday items. I think the best part of my move i was able to ask my self if i really needed certain items, I got rid of stuff that was taking up space, and space it something we all want cause we can't have enough open space!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I always do up a basket with screwdrivers, tape, measuring tape, a hammer, wet ones, an allenwrench, calculator, kleenex and toilet paper, lightbulbs. This has saved me many a time.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great tips, but won't work in a big move that has to go all at once. One suggestion - pack a suitcase for each person to survive a week without needing anything else. For example: clothes,shoes, pj's, toys, diapers, toothbrush etc. Then put those in the car (so you know where they are) and in the case that you really don't get unpacked for awhile, nothing is urgent for personal hygiene and dressing. Don't forget the favorite blanket and sleeping pillow.

  26. I have two clever sisters for their recent move... they went and bought various colors of duct tape. They made a list of colors and catagorized. When they packed a box they cut a piece of tape and put it on the corner of each box. When they got where they were going...across many states...they knew where to put the boxes.

  28. Having moved a LOT in my fairly young life (30 times in 27 years), I whole-heartedly support this post! I have to say, of all these fantastic ideas, #8 is the one I can't stress enough. Make sure those beds are made! Nothing is more stressful than working hard and long and then having a mountain of stuff on a bed that may not even be put together yet - just a mattress set on the floor. Definitely a stress-er, whether you realize it or not.

    ReplyDelete
  29. One thing I found that made moving easier was to buy a large roll of plastic cover (saran wrap) at Sam's or Costco for $10-12 a roll. You can use it to wrap plastic around drawers and hold things in or to wrap large pieces of furniture (buffet, table, dressers, etc...) and electronics. It's not the most environment friendly but it definitely keeps things from getting scratched and dinged during the move!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thank you for these helpful tips, Emily! I like the idea of tip #4 very much! That would be more convenient than hanging clothes up one by one. Plus, I don’t have to fold each one and stuff them all up in a bag.

  31. I find the wrapping all of your flat screens with blankets when moving helps protect the screens and keeps them snug in place while driving. And zip tying all the water hoses and putting them in a trash bag make them very easy to handle!! And last but not least we put old fitted sheets on the mattresses so they don't get dirty when touching the ground.

    ReplyDelete
  32. With moving 3 times in 9 months, I'm getting this down PAT!

    1.)We always pack a suitcase like we are going on a week long camping trip, with clothes, toiletries, and medicines.
    2.)We like to have one big rubbermaid bin with towels, toilet paper, soap, first aid kit, snacks, notecards, pens and paper and the blue painters tape. This allows us to stock bathrooms, write down little notes or tape signs where we want things if people are helping us.
    3.)We use old fitted sheets over our mattresses for moving, and use other sheets, towel, wash clothes on breakables or to fill spaces in boxes.
    4.)Use plastic grocery bags from anything to filling extra space in boxes to wrapping items in. Anything that is liquid is being put in a bag tied up tight before going in a box!
    5.)Set up one room right away, preferably a room that you pass often while unloading most boxes, this way you feel like you've made progress!
    6.)Tape notecards to the outsides of boxes saying what room you want it unpacked in, and then little notes to yourself about what is inside.

    And my number ONE rule. - - -"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful." William Morris

    Great reminder when packing up things you may not need or don't even like!

    1. My number 1 rule as well- moving is a great time to get rid of stuff you don't use. Keep the sentimental items, lose the extra kitchen gadgets that have been in the back of the cupboard for years! These things can benefit the local thrift shops, and you don't need them!
      Funny (now) story... sorted through EVERYTHING before moving, had three piles for the basement-- one said "Move" the another said "Donate" and the third "Trash". We recruited friends and family to help us, bless their hearts; but, unfortunately loaded every single box from every pile in a mixed fashion. I ended up sorting through my stuff twice! Yikes! (A word to the wise- don't assume anyone is paying attention on moving day!!) :)

  33. Nice tips! Even though you moved only 30 minutes away, I was also able to apply this info to my own long distance move. I plan on making my big move in July and I just had a garage sell last weekend to get rid of extra things that I no longer used or needed. I am also using suitcases, boxes, and storage cases I already have to reduce costs. Now it's time to make some calls to moving companies long distance to find some affordable rates.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Long-distance moves are a very different animal from local moves. Moving long distances usually entails greater expense and requires a more experienced and properly licensed moving company. Moving from state to state or province to province is usually not performed by local movers.

  35. Well, congratulations for your successful move. These tips are really amazing. I once helped relocate a friend of mine and it was a very stressful move. Lots of things went wrong especially with the packing stage. We used lots of boxes without thinking of other alternatives like those you have mentioned like the cooler. We also used newspapers and now I realize that indeed, towels and blankets can be a great substitute. This will be helpful for those who are planning to travel or move (with the help of movers Nebraska for instance). I really learned a lot with your post. Thank you for sharing.

  41. I have moved 13 times in 14 years. I have used all of these at one point another. Sometimes we have moved just down the street others 100s of miles away. Another tip I have found is organize before you move. Make sure all your boxes make sense. Pack kitchen cabinet things in the same box as you find them in the cabinet. Same goes for the rest of the house. If you have certain bathroom stuff that always goes together pack them in the same box. It makes unpacking so much easier. By doing this I usually have the whole house put away the same day we move, no matter how far. All I have left is hanging pictures and curtains. You would be amazed at how many people don't do this. Don't fill up a little extra space in a box with something that doesn't even go with it!

  44. These tips to much helpful for party hope I am post for my friend These boxes aren't necessary as most movers will wrap your mattress in plastic bags which are much cheaper to purchase. However, boxes will keep your mattress from being punctured or if it's being stored for a while, it'll protect it better from outside forces. Mattress boxes come in many sizes from cribs to twin to king-size.

  70. Amazing guidelines here. I especially believe the fact with #10-have an over night bag for the day of the shift. And I'd increase on #5. Carry TP and a new bath layer lining. Nothing absorbs more than getting to the end of the day and not having one of those.

  73. A year ago, we moved in to the city and it was one of the most difficult experiences I had, ever! The process just demands so much time and effort and to make things worse, we did not really hire enough help. This post not only interests packers but movers Nebraska as well. Anyway, moving to relocating is never easy and it never does, but knowing what to do and how to do it helps a lot to get a better experience. So, thank you for this very useful post.

  74. Moving is not really easy and proper planning needs to be done.Most importantly, you need to choose whether you’re moving yourself or hiring a professional moving company, which business to choose for movers or moving truck rental, which items to pack which ones to let go, and many more.

  75. Thanks a lot Emily for such nice and important tips for removal process because removal or relocate is a stressful affair for everyone. It is better to plan your removal process before some days for which your removal will be smooth and excellent. It is better to discuss with all your family members what they can do on the day of removal for which it is quiet easy for removal process. Work should be divided into your members for removal. Packing and loading are the main part of relocation so try to do it systematically and smoothly. If possible try to hire some persons to load and unload your belongings for which it will be easy to do other works in the removal day.

We failed to talk to our gas and electricity suppliers, as well as other suppliers, for one. And we were not able to start our planning with a complete list of to-do's! Well, to be honest, we're to be blamed partly because we did not take the time to organize our move. It's a lesson learned the hard way -- hopefully we can refer to that experience if and when we decide to move again. I just like to share my blog post here -- it's not as detailed as yours, but I'm hoping I was able to able some useful tips to all your readers. Thanks and looking forward to more of your posts!
