Moving Hacks You Probably Didn’t Know

1. Call the utility companies as soon as you know you’re moving. 

2. Put plastic wrap over drawers so you don’t have to empty out their contents. 

3. Stuff hanging clothes into garbage sacks while still on the hangers. 

This helps to keep clothes altogether, and then they are all ready to hang up in your new closet.

4. Get rid of your junk! 

You can have a garage sale and sell the items you won’t need. The extra money will come in handy for your new home.

5. Make yourself a moving key. 


Make matching colored labels on every box and piece of furniture you are having moved. It will save everyone so much time.

6. Put a rubber band around the doorknob 

This will prevent it from latching every time you carry a box out the door.

7. If there are fragile items in the box, be sure to mark it FRAGILE. 


This will save everyone a lot of time and stress during the move especially if you have vulnerable items that easily breaks.
