Moving from one location to another isn’t always the easiest thing to do, especially if you have a lot of items to move. Making your move as efficient as possible can help you to save time, energy, and money—all of which can be used to help you focus on adjusting to your new home instead. While you can follow a few tips to make your move more efficient, the easiest way to get your move done is by hiring a professional moving company.

Coleman Hawaii Movers, one of Hawaii’s premier moving companies, employs highly trained movers and packers to get any-sized move done on time, on-budget, and without the stress. We’re always ready to help our customers make their moving projects as easy and hassle-free as possible, which is why we’re sharing these quick and easy packing tips to help you prepare for a seamless relocation experience.

Take Inventory of Your Belongings

The last thing you want to do while settling into your new home is to realize that you can’t find items that you’re sure had moved with you. To make sure that all your most important items get packed up and arrive at your new home, make an inventory list that you can check off during packing and unpacking. This will reduce the chances of anything getting lost, misplaced, or forgotten about.

Stock Up on Moving Supplies

Packing almost always takes a lot longer than you’d think. To make sure that you are ready to move on time, you will want to start packing early—even weeks before moving day. This means that you will need to keep a good supply of moving supplies on hand to keep progress running smoothly at all times. Check with your local supermarkets for boxes, packing materials, and paper that they would otherwise throw away. Most businesses will give them to you for free or for a very low cost, so start collecting them in advance to avoid having to buy them at full price from a supply store.

You’ll also need plenty of packing tape, duct tape, permanent markers, scissors, bubble wrap, packing paper, and garbage bags. If you start early, you’ll be able to save money on these supplies by purchasing them wherever you happen to find them at a discount (and not all at once in an expensive supply store).

Get Rid of Unused Items

One of the most eye-opening things about moving is realizing just how much you have accumulated over the past years. You may realize that you have many things that you no longer need or use. This is the perfect time to downsize and you can even make a little extra money by selling some of your old items. 

If you can’t part with your things, or you cannot fit all of your items into your new home, you can check out one of the many storage solutions offered by most moving companies.

Hire a Professional Moving Company

Lastly, if a full-service move is in your budget, hiring a professional moving company to pack and unpack for you is the best way to experience a clean and efficient move. A good moving company will plan out your move, pack your items while handling your fragile items with ease, and will even unpack and set everything up in your new home for you. This will allow you to remain stress-free and even hands-off for the entire relocation—giving you plenty of time to relax and focus on getting settled into your new life in a new home.
