Nearly every packing and moving company will tell you that spring is a popular time for people to relocate their families. It’s as if the masses take to heart the words from the poet Christopher Morley, “April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks, ‘Go’.” However, before you go, take care of these few things to ensure a successful spring move.
- Keep an eye on the weather. Especially up here in the Bay Area, spring is known for rain showers and strong winds, and these conditions can make an already stressful day into a miserable and uncertain one. Check weather reports. Plan ahead by purchasing tarps, and pack electronics in weather-proof boxes.
- Spring clean your home. Wash all bedding, curtains, and other items that are going with you. Select the clothes, furniture, exercise equipment, and toys that you don’t need, and either sell or donate them prior to the move.
- Organize everything. Pack boxes by room, not by what fits neatly into a specific container. Clearly label each box with its contents and where it goes in your new home.
- Hire a moving company. Avoid the temptation to attempt a “DIY” move, especially if you plan to travel long distances, or if you own diverse and valuable assets and furniture. Take advantage of the expertise that local and interstate movers possess. They can get your appliances, pianos, and other hard-to move items from here to there without damage. Reduce the toll that a move takes on you in terms of time and stress by taking advantage of their packing skills as well.
