Sort and Inventory Your Household
You never know how much you have before you move! Before you start calling and emailing for moving quotes, it is a good idea to clean house and take inventory of everything. Decide what you want to keep and what will be discarded, sold, or donated. Why spend the money to move something that you haven’t touched in years? Most companies are going to ask for an inventory list of everything you plan to move in order to build you a quote, so it’s best to make this list ahead of time. You don’t want to forget anything on the phone or in the email, because the quote you get will only be as accurate as your inventory list, no matter which company you choose for your move.
Reconnect with Your Belongings
Now is a great time to downsize and reconnect with all of the belongings you have collected over the years. Try not to get overwhelmed during your initial walk through — you don’t need to start packing and labeling everything into boxes all at once. Enjoy the fond memories of each item you find. Remember the positive experiences you had and the people you were with when you acquired each piece. A trip down memory lane can be very humbling and therapeutic, because it reminds you of times forgotten and memories shared with friends, families, and loved ones. This does not mean you should procrastinate packing because in lieu of having friends over for wine! In our experience, packing the weekend before your move never seems to work out!
