Tips to Make Your Move to Knoxville Easier

Knoxville movers can attest: whether you are a pro at moving house or you are a novice at the whole ordeal, it’s always good to brush up and learn a few more tips to make your move easier. We’ve all been in a spot where some not so great planning lead to even more frustrations when we get to our new house. The last thing you want when you arrive in your soon to be new home is for any added annoyances. You are already trying to get the power turned on, get the internet connected, and fill the empty fridge with some reasonably good food.

All My Sons Knoxville movers are experts at moving all the important stuff you need and cherish. So with that in mind, let us give you a few good tips to make your move easier.

Overnight Bag– Don’t deny the fact that you may have arrived at your new apartment and realized that you packed your toothbrush or contact solution in some random box or bag beneath all your towels, or your ironically cool shower curtain. It’s cool, it happens to the best of us. Here’s All My Sons’ number 1 tip: Pack an overnight bag. Treat the first few days of your move like a trip to a hotel. Pack all the essentials in an easy-to-reach place. Your favorite shirt, toothbrush and iPhone charger should all be ready to use at a moment’s notice.

Moving Valuables – If you have a lot of breakables, valuables or sentimental belongings that you don’t want to risk damaging during your move to Knoxville, consider the option of hiring professional movers in Knoxville. Hiring movers as opposed to friends is often the smart choice if you want the job done right and done quickly. The movers at All My Sons are pros; this is not their first rodeo and getting your belongings safely to your new home is their job, nay it’s their craft. Choose the masters every time!

Your Unwanted Stuff – Donating items that you no longer need is one of the best ways to streamline moving. It makes your life easier and it should give you that great feeling - that hey, you’re helping someone in need at the same time. If the items are big or bulky, you can organize for the charities to pick them up for you. There are three Goodwill stores in Knoxville that will happily send their movers over to take that unwanted couch or old bed off your hands before your move to Knoxville. Consider selling anything that is too valuable to just donate by throwing a mini garage sale or posting it on a website like eBay, Craigslist, or whatever bartering site is popular in your area.

Take Care of the Admin Stuff – You should start taking care of all the little details at least two weeks prior to the move. Call ahead and get your internet provider to send a tech out the day you arrive, get your new driver’s license and make sure your address is changed on any important documents. These little details become a real nuisance later on when you have bigger fish to fry. It will save you a whole heap of headaches to get started before you arrive.

Moving to Knoxville should be an exciting time for you. The city has a lot to offer, all with a dash of southern charm. We hope this article helps you and yours, even just a little. Welcome to Knoxville!
