Storage Advice

Here are some commonly overlooked tips for better moving and storage organization.

  • Label boxes accordingly. This help ensure that loading and unpacking goes smoothly.
  • Try to group like items together. Place dishes with other tableware. Pack linens with other laundry items. Doing so makes the unpacking phase that much easier.
  • Don’t overload your boxes. Pack smart. It’s better to have to pack two boxes and make two trips then to have your fine dining ware end up on the driveway.
  • Considering the above, make sure to have the proper supplies. Things like packaging tape, markers for labeling, and boxes – you’ll want plenty of boxes.
  • Once the boxes are packed store them in a dry place. Nothing can ruin moving day like ruined boxes.
  • Know the space you’ll have to pack everything into. It’s important to consider the space you have to work with.
  • Make sure to lift with your legs. Nothing can hinder moving day progress more than a back injury.
  • Make sure all items are secured for transport. You don’t want to arrive at your new place only to find out the bowling ball you haven’t used in 5 years managed to roll its way onto your flat screen.
  • If possible, get as much help moving as you can.  Or, hire movers in Utah.  Don’t forget you’re going to have to move everything twice. Many hands make light work.
  • Plan ahead and start early. It’s taken your lifetime to collect everything you own. You can’t expect to pack and load everything in a few hours.
  • You don’t have to take everything with you. While cleaning out your closet you find that blanket your aunt made for you 10 years ago. Don’t start your new life off with clutter. Donate items to charity.
  • Don’t forget to turn on the utilities. Contact service providers ahead of time and let them know when you’ll need their services turned on.
  • Moving is hard work. Do everyone a favor and take a hot shower when you’re done.
