National Moving Month Tips & Tricks
Need to move to Knoxville in the upcoming months? No worries as this time of year is when hundreds of thousands of people move to a new home. Just like the masses, you’re most likely taking care of relocation tasks such as updating your address with different organizations and booking our Knoxville movers to help you move. Since May is National Moving Month, our Tennessee movers figured we’d provide helpful moving tips and tricks to help you get ahead of the game this upcoming moving season.
Create a “Moving Day” Kit
For National Moving Month, prepare a “Moving Day” kit to help your family maintain their sanity as your move to Knoxville approaches. Once our Knoxville long-distance movers have all your valuables loaded on to the moving truck, you’ll have this “Moving Day” kit on-hand to keep things in order for the long-haul. This kit can include items such as a change of clothes, prescription medication, toiletries, important documents, and first-aid. Along with this moving kit, maintain a cooler filled with everyone’s favorite snacks and beverages to keep them fueled for the move.
Sort, Organize, and Donate
In honor of National Moving Month, declutter, get rid of the junk you have in order to lighten your load for the move. This will make it easier for you and our moving company in Knoxville to have your belongings transported faster. Start by organizing and sorting out junk you no longer need. If the items you no longer need still have value like books or clothes, try donating them. For the clothes, you can donate them to charities such as the Salvation Army or Goodwill for those in need. As for books, donate them to places like schools and libraries as they’re always in need of new inventory.
If you’re having trouble parting ways with your books, you can always have them shipped via the United States Postal Service’s Media Mail.1 Media Mail gives you the option to ship twenty pounds worth of books for just $12 per box, so, this gives you less weight to lug for your move to Knoxville.
Change Your Address
This National Moving Month in May, remember to update your mailing address ahead of time to prevent any delays in mail delivery. Begin changing your address with your local post office to ensure any mail sent to the old address will be forwarded to the new one. In addition, don’t forget to schedule service cancellation with utility companies for the old address and service activation with for the new address.
