How Decluttering Can Make Your Move Simpler & Easier

One of the most helpful things you can do before moving is to get rid of the excess and declutter, preferably well before moving day. The last thing you want to deal with amid the other stresses of moving is having to get rid of items that you have no intention of bringing with you in the first place. If you handle the job of decluttering with plenty of time to spare, you’ll be able to handle the other more important aspects of relocating.

When you’re able to eliminate all of the things you need to get rid of in advance of moving day, it’s much easier to pack, organize and get a firm idea of how much actual moving you have to do. Less clutter in turn makes it easier for the movers to get in and out of rooms and get a better idea of how much space you’ll need for your furniture and other belongings on the moving truck.

Benefits Of Decluttering & How It Helps

Advantage Of Decluttering

You Can Save Money

One of the main things that determines the total cost of your move is the weight of your belongings. Naturally, the less you have to move, the less your move will cost, which makes it all the more necessary to get rid of everything that is not essential. How you determine what is essential is up to you, but it’s a process that’s best done early on in the process. If left to the last minute, you may not be able to easily decide what to keep and what to throw out, or even worse, you may find that you get rid of something that you or a family member wanted to keep.

By starting early as part of your moving preparation, you’ll have plenty of time to give careful consideration to things that need to go and what needs to stay. By the time moving day rolls around, you’ll not only have less things to move, but you can rest assured that nothing essential was tossed and nothing unnecessary still remains. Keep in mind that weight is the main factor here, so that dining room table that’s been around for years may not be worth the trek unless it really means a lot to you or has serious sentimental value to your family. By the same token, something that takes up a lot of space in the moving truck, even if it’s not very heavy, can still reduce the space you have available for other items.

More Space In Your New Home

  • Moving into a new space means you’ll have to carefully consider how to arrange everything and that includes incorporating some new furniture into your layout. The less clutter you have in the moving truck, the more space you’ll have to work with in your new home, whether it’s just to keep a minimal look or if you want to add new furniture.
Easier To Pack And Unpack

Packing & Unpacking Are Easier

With less excess it’s much easier to pack and unpack, creating a more streamlined moving experience. It can be helpful if you make a list of what stays and what goes so you don’t have to make the decision on the fly, which will also limit the amount of packing you have to do before moving day.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
