Moving is known to be quite stressful and time-consuming, especially if you do it alone. We at Cross Country Movers Group are here to make your relocation process easier and more pleasant. We took the liberty of compiling some practical moving tips that can make your relocation even more pleasant.

  1. Time Management

Do not wait till the last moment to start packing. The relocation process will be much less stressful if you start making plans in time, especially when it comes to packing. Take your time to carefully plan you relocation and packing.

  1. Use Lists

Making a list always helps, no matter what you do. Create a to do list for the packing, moving and unpacking stages of the relocation. You will save a lot of energy with a practical list by your side.

  1. Box Handles

If the boxes you bought have no handles on the sides, simply cut out a triangle shaped handle with a knife and simply fold it into the box to make the handle.

  1. Refrigerator

Do not forget to defrost your refrigerator. Doing this in time will save you a lot of trouble down the road. Make sure you have it defrosted and dry around 24-48 hours before the moving starts.

  1. Earn cash while moving

If you find some old clothes that you do not want to use anymore, simply auction it and sell it. This way you free yourself from useless items and you make some cash along the way.

  1. Coloring

Figure out a coloring code for your boxes, so that you do not forget what is inside the boxes. Using colored tapes or markers to make coordination easier.

  1. Pets

If you have a pet, it is best that you ask a friend to look out for your pet while you are packing. This period can be a stressful one, even for your pets, and having it away will certainly help.

  1. Wine Cases

Use wine cases to store glasses and cups that you do not want to see broken. Just go to a nearby restaurant and ask for an empty wine case.

  1. Insurance
