Part One

Moving from one place to another is often time consuming and stressful.  The first question people often ask themselves is whether or not they should consider moving truck rental and move themselves, or, hire a full service moving company to handle the logistics for them.  The decision is up to you, but remember, time is money.  3 Guys Moving is a reliable, full service moving company with experienced movers and packers who can help ease the burden of moving.  Whether you are handling it yourself, or hiring a professional moving and packing company, here are some tips to help make your move less stressful.

Get organized

Getting organized can prevent much stress.  Consider taking an inventory of all of the items you plan to take with you. Make a list of all your belongings and categorize items (i.e. kitchen, Molly’s room, etc.). Then, plan a garage sale and/or trip to a donation center to get rid of items you do not wish to take with you. Doing this will make it easier, especially when the movers and packers arrive.

Start packing early

Time flies so the earlier you start packing the less stressed you will be later.  Even if you plan to hire a packing and moving company, there will likely be some items you wish to keep with you. Start by packing the items you plan to move yourself. Then, make sure you have everything else ready for when the movers and packers arrive.

Use quality moving supplies

If you hire a packing and moving company, they will have plenty of quality moving supplies on hand when they arrive to pack your belongings. However, if you plan to handle the packing yourself, we suggest purchasing quality moving supplies such as sturdy boxes, strapping tape, bubble wrap, packing wrap, etc.  Our professionals carefully and strategically place items in our moving trucks all the time. Breakage, when it occurs, is usually a result of customers not properly packing boxes and other items for transport.
