How to Prepare to Move
1. Define Timeline
We recommend starting your preparations TWO MONTHS in advance.
2. Determine Budget
Moving is not cheap. Creating a budget is a great way to keep costs manageable.
3. Decide What to Move
Determine what items you would like to move with you. Remember: the more you have the more it costs.
4. Packing Supplies
We are happy to help pack, but getting ahead of the game is always recommended.
5. Start Packing
Try not to over pack and use as many boxes as you need. Be sure to wrap up any breakables, and save space by putting items inside other items.
Top 5 Packing Tips and Supplies
1. Label Boxes
Labeling boxes will make unpacking easier and organized.
4. The Heavier the Item, The Smaller the Box
Using a smaller box makes items easier to carry, and helps prevent overpacking boxes.
2. One Box, One Room
Don’t mix items from different rooms. This will help keep your items organized.

- Cardboard Boxes
- Box Cutters
- Packing Tape

3. Keep Fragile Items Together
Group fragile items together and label them as fragile.
Use towels or old t-shirts to wrap breakables and save money.
