Moving Tips for Homeowners

If you just recently purchased your new home and are getting ready for the big move to Chicago, that means it’s time to buckle down and get prepared! If you can check each task off your list with solid efficiency, your move will be much easier, and, likely cheaper! You may have some doubts or a few questions about how to tackle the move. So, your premier Chicago movers have taken care of the research for you and have compiled a list of tips for you. Read on!

Pack Smart!

Packing can be the most overwhelming and incredibly stressful tasks in the entire moving process—we get it! So, in order to avoid a great deal of trouble, begin with cleaning up the house and then get to organizing your belongings room-by-room. Once everything is organized, round-up your packing supplies (if you need more you can get your packing supplies in Chicago from All My Sons!) When you’ve got everything ready, you can get to the packing!

Again, go room-by-room, category-by-category when applicable. Pack like items together for high efficiency. Remember to label your boxes properly as well. Whichever way works best for you, whether the label is for the room name and category, just the category, just the room name, or use a numbering/lettering system.

Perhaps the most important tip here is to pack your essentials and other necessary items you may need at any immediate moment. Be sure to have a box, bag, case, or tote bin full of these items. Naturally, you don’t want to lose this box amongst your others, so, be sure to label it boldly just in case.

Don’t Try to Do it All Yourself

Sure, there are some tasks you may be able to handle on your own, if you are absolutely comfortable with completing those tasks yourself, then, by all means, feel free! But remember that you are also dealing with all the logistics of owning a new home in Chicago, from all the details of selling your current home, squaring away the closing costs and all other details, dealing with phone calls left and right from your real estate agent about selling one home and buying the other! This could get mighty stressful.

Because of this, it may be best to hire yourself a team of Chicago movers. If you decide against packing yourself, you can always get a packing service in Chicago with your movers. Overall, this could potentially result in you saving a good deal of money throughout the whole moving process, especially if you bundle services with one company, as opposed to outsourcing through multiple businesses.
