In order to have a stress-free, smooth, and successful move, you need to take the time to prepare for your move. The last thing you want to be doing is still packing when your NYC residential moving company arrives at your home. As soon as you know you are moving, start your preparations and packing, as follows:


• Do a Whole House Inventory: Moving is a great time to go through your belongings and get rid of anything you no longer want or need. It makes no sense to move items you will never use again to your new home. Donate unwanted items to a church, homeless shelter, or charity.
• Obtain Moving Supplies from Your NYC Mover: You will need boxes in all different sizes, packing tape, permanent markers, bubble wrap, and padding for fragile items.
• Pack Nonessential Items: Anything you can do without until after you move should be packed now.
• Label All Boxes and Keep Them Organized: As you pack, remember to label all boxes with a summary of the contents and the location you want the movers to put the boxes in your new home. Keep the packed boxes in the same rooms as you packed them.
• Pack Personal Items Last: Pack toiletries, medications, and other personal items last, since these are things you use every day.


By taking the time to pack as much as you can, well in advance of your move, you will be better prepared for your moving day. For additional packing tips and suggestions, or to obtain moving supplies, feel free to contact Movers LLC at 212-695-0200.
