Miami DIY Moving Tips

Moving to Miami or anywhere else in the country can be stressful, especially if you’re doing it on your own. According to Health Status, moving is the third most stressful life event after divorce and the death of a loved one, [1]so it’s no wonder you may feel all over the place. You’re probably in a hurry to take care of relocation errands like updating your address with various organizations and people, scheduling a new Wi-Fi installation, and so on. Besides all the errands you must complete, there are useful tips to facilitate your move to Miami. Our Miami movers are happy to share some Miami DIY moving tips for your upcoming relocation.


Ask Other for Help

This is supposed to be a “do-it-yourself” move, not a “do-it-by-yourself” operation. Asking friends and family for help is number one on our list of Miami DIY moving tips. Let those close to you cover different factors of the move; from packing your valuables and furniture to helping you load the moving truck. That way, one person isn’t overloaded with so many tasks, including yourself! Having someone to help you move can also reduce your chances of injuring yourself since you’ll have others there to shoulder part of the work. 

If you feel that packing will be too time-consuming, you can always reserve our Miami packing services to help you out. Our Miami movers use quality packing material to expertly pack any type of item to ensure its security for the move.


Sort Out Junk

One of our tips for moving to Miami also includes decreasing your moving load by decluttering. Consider this: the more useless items you pack, the more packing material you’ll need to purchase. Therefore, go through closets, storage areas, under the couch and beds to sort out useless junk you won’t need in Miami. If you have anything salvageable, donate them to local charities like Goodwill and the Salvation Army. For everything else, visit your local recycling center to dispose of them properly. 


Don’t Move on a Work Day

If you really want to keep your stress levels at an all-time low, move on a day you already have off ,depending on your schedule. There’s nothing more frustrating than to navigate your moving truck through rush hour traffic during the week or the midafternoon shopping rush of the weekend since it can really slow you down. If you work a regular 9-5, get an early jump on things over the weekend. If your schedule is more irregular, move on a weekday, between the morning and afternoon rush hours.
