If you’re faced with a sudden and unexpected move to Euless TX, you may be in a bit of a panic right now. No worries. With a solid plan and dependable movers, you can handle anything. Surprise moves are usually due to a work relocation or divorce situation, so the circumstances surrounding the move are already stressful.
To reduce that stress level when moving unexpectedly, follow these tips for a smooth move to Euless, a suburb of Dallas and Fort Worth home to 55,000. We’ll help you learn how to pack up and move fast when time is not on your side.
Get Rid of Stuff
Now’s not the time to get sentimental and pack rat-ty. This is a time to dispose of the things that are weighing you down. If you don’t, you’ll have to pay to move junk. Get rid of as much stuff as you can, going through each room and separating items into three piles:
Haven’t used or worn it for a year? It goes. Involve the whole family by having them tackle their own rooms in this manner.
It’s time to rally the troops. Ask friends, family and neighbors for help when packing, loading and transporting. Be clear with their duties ahead of time so you can delegate tasks efficiently. For instance, if you have already sorted your belongings into a “keep” pile, direct a helper to that pile so they can get to work without asking what to do next.
Another helper can get rid of the boxes of stuff you plan to donate. They can arrange donation pickups or drop off donation items as well as take trips to the dump to get rid of junk and hazardous materials or bulk items.
Buy Packing Supplies
Moving on a short timeline means you don’t have time to amass a collection of free boxes and supplies. Just buy them online or in a moving or office supply store, which will save you the trouble of hunting down everything you need.
Jump right into the packing task now that you have the supplies you need. Pack as carefully yet as quickly as you can. Be mindful of packing delicate or large items such as TVs and major appliances. Use labels or sticky notes to advise helpers on what to do with those items.
