When it comes to relocation, packing and heavy lifting are among the most dreaded parts of the entire process. Beyond packing and moving, however, there are a lot of other tasks that need to be considered as well, which is why it’s considered by most people to be a difficult and stressful process.

Planning a move isn’t known for being easy, however, you can reduce much of this stress by being prepared and staying ahead of the game. With a few simple tips, you can ensure that your move is as easy as can be—and perhaps even enjoyable, too.

If you’re getting ready for a household or commercial move, you’re in the right place. In this guide, our team of experienced movers from Coleman Hawaii Movers team will reveal what you need to know about relocation—and how you can get ready for a smooth and positive moving experience.

Book with a Moving Company

To help get your move organized and completed without the stress and hassle that usually comes along with it, hiring professional help is a great choice. A professional moving company like Coleman Hawaii Movers can help you plan your project from start to finish, ensuring that every last detail is considered and taken care of—according to your needs and your budget.

Reputable moving companies consist of highly trained, professional movers with access to state-of-the-art moving tools and techniques. As long as the team you hires is certified and well-trained, and has great ratings from former clients and a long history of excellence in the industry—you can’t expect professional movers to save you some serious time and energy during your move.

Get Everything Packed Up

To start your moving process, you will need to get all of your belongings packed up and ready for the moving team to lift and carry out. If you’re short on time or physically unable to do this yourself, consider hiring full-service movers to pack and unpack your belongings for you.

If you’re planning on packing your items yourself, make sure that you are properly packing all of your items to make sure your breakables stay safe and sound during the move. Find premium packing supplies—including plenty of packing paper and bubble wrap and sturdy moving boxes. Label each box according to which room it will be going in and what items are in each box. This will help you stay organized and make it easier to find certain items you may need later.

First Day Essentials

Before you have every last item packed up and ready to go for moving day, set aside one box of things you’ll need immediately upon arrival at your new home. This is referred to as the “first-day box”, and it can be an incredibly useful consideration to make to avoid wasting time later. A first-day box should include toilet paper, toothbrushes, simple kitchen utensils, and other items you may need as soon as you move in.

The Day Of The Move

With everything loaded up and ready for moving day, you need to get prepped for the moving company. To make the job easier for you and the movers, have all of your boxes ready to go and easily accessible for the crew to lift and carry out. This is going to make the move much quicker and allow you to have more time to get settled into your new home.

Getting Settled In

Now that your belongings have made it to your new place, it is time to check over all of your boxes to ensure that everything made it to the new home. Making a checklist of your household’s inventory, or at the very least, numbering all of your boxes will make quick work of this step—and will allow you to finish the unpacking process much faster.
