Millennial-Friendly Moving Tips

Packing for a moveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Indeed, you are genuinely adulting now--managing your very first move with no benefits of parental castoffs or finances. The first thing you could have discovered about picking up things and relocating is that the bills mount up quickly. The following thing is that it's going to take crazy organizational expertise to move all that you own from point A to point B without mistaking your X-Box box for your Ninja box.

1) Make Use of Your Tech for Good

You'll find lots of apps that will help you organize a move--they could keep track of anything from your packing (save photographs of the items you put in each and every box) to setting up utilities (major life skill) to finding a moving company in Atlanta. You will be able to share the information with roommates or relatives so everybody is certainly on the same page.

2) Low-Tech Even Now Rules for Moving

All the fantastic apps on this planet aren't able to replace old-fashioned cardboard boxes and packing tape. Here's a moving trick that you will utilize for the rest of your life--buy small cardboard boxes. Sure, you can get a lot more stuff in a large box, but they get overweight extremely fast. Plenty of small boxes are more effective compared to a few gigantic ones.

So, you'll need boxes, tape (spring for the tape gun), some newsprint or bubble wrap for shock absorption, and markers. If you're extremely prepared, you can use color coded markers on your cartons, but a majority of folks are happy with a black wide-tip Sharpie.

One larger box that is certainly worth buying is a wardrobe box--a heavy duty box with a metal hanging bar at the top. You'll be able to stow your hanging apparel in this box and not be worried about wrinkles and dry cleaning whenever you unpack. Contact your local moving company in Atlanta for any specialty boxes that you might need.

3) Allow Plenty of Time

Recollect when you were enrolled in college and could load up and proceed to a different apartment (or room in the frat house) within a few hours? Forget about that. Today you have home furnishings, electronic devices, canoes, and all sorts of things which you often put in your parent's basement. Not to mention your video game collection. Give yourself several weeks at the least to pack up for the move--the further you are going, the more amount of time you will require.

A fantastic general guideline is a couple of days for each room--you may pack a studio apartment a lot faster than you can a two-bedroom rental. Chuck everything you never utilize or will not need--donate it, give it away or trash it.

4) Understand Your Limits

Indeed, you may be youthful and able to tackle the world, however you may still require professional movers, particularly if you have things like a motorcycle or even a golf cart. If you are moving a lengthy distance and flying to your new residence, you will also need to transport your automobile. Professional movers in Atlanta are able to pack and move ALL your stuff for you, and you will not have to concern yourself with it not arriving there successfully.

Should it be at all within your funds, you should consider finding a professional moving company in Atlanta for the move. If you're relocating for work, your relocation package perhaps provides this benefit, so absolutely take advantage of it.

5) Snap a Selfie
