Woman Remembering Top Items for Local Relocation

Simplify Your Relocation With These Must Know Moving Tips


Moving day is near, and you’re ready to relocate to your new home, job and community. A little effort now will avoid problems later. Moving companies have seen it all, and Magic Moving and Storage offers these top 10 tips to help your move go as smoothly as possible:

Packing and Prepping

  • Label your boxes. You’ve probably heard this many times, but this common advice is uncommonly followed. Do it. Labeling your boxes will make unpacking so much easier.
  • Use correct packing materials. Don’t skimp on boxes, bubble wrap and wrapping paper, or you may end up spending more to replace broken items. A good moving company will have these supplies available at a reasonable price.
  • Avoid moving on a Friday. This is a high-demand moving day, and some movers charge more for Friday moves. Also, if you get to your new home and find a problem with the water, electricity or gas, you might not be able to resolve it until Monday.
  • Check that everything has been packed. Little-used cabinets or cupboards may be filled with treasures you don’t want to leave behind.
  • Get all of the keys from the sellers. Avoid the frustration of finding a locked shed or utility box by double checking with the previous owners that you have all the keys.

The Essentials

Nearly everyone packs an “essentials box” of items they will need when they get to their new home. Usually this consists of clothes, pots and pans, and dishes. However, there are a few essentials that movers know you will need but which most people forget:

  • Cleaning supplies
  • Toilet paper
  • Pet food and dishes
  • Dish soap
  • Scissors and box cutters for opening moving boxes
