Mallards Moving Tips

Getting overwhelmed with your move? Try these tips!

  • Call rental trucks, movers, cleaners and storage facilities if needed.
  • Supplies: Boxes, scissors, tape, bubble wrap, newspaper, marking pens and bags.
  • Schedule donations for items you don’t want to move.
  • Place your change of address and call utility companies to transfer or discontinue their service.
  • Plants: Stop watering 3 days before you move.
  • Food: Use what you can beforehand and check expiration dates on condiments.
  • Rugs: Clean and rolled up inside out with tape for easy transport.
  • Pack one room at a time. You will feel more organized.
  • Label your boxes by room and item descriptions for easy placement when unloading.
  • Use towels, pillows, and blankets to pad breakable items and mark boxes as fragile.
  • Put heavy items such as books in smaller boxes and keep bigger boxes for lighter items.
  • Keep clothing on hangers and in drawers when possible.
  • Keep tools used to disassemble items handy to reassemble at your new home.
  • Place screws in a baggy and tape to the inside of the furniture to keep them all together.
  • Pack a suitcase with clothes, first aid kit, medicine, toiletries, and sunscreen if it’s summer.
  • Keep a grocery bag with paper plates, plastic utensils, bottles of water and menu for take-out.

Assemble and make your bed first. So that after a day of moving boxes, you don’t have to make your bed before you can crash.
