Moving Expert

I have moved so many times in my lifetime, it's become second nature to me. I've lived in 32 different places in the 33 years that I've been alive.


Having moved so many times, I've dwindled down my personal inventories to just basic necessities; clothes, shoes, laptop, and bed. That’s just about it.

Everything I own could fit in my car, with the exception of my bed. That’s where my friend with the pickup truck comes in.

Some tips that I have to offer; IF you’re moving locally, I suggest you overlap your move in/move out dates. Take as much as you can over BEFORE moving day; boxes, small furniture, miscellaneous items so when you do get the moving truck, you’ll only have to lug over the big furniture and other remaining items. It makes moving day a lot less stressful.

However, if you’re moving long distance, I offer similar advice. PACK EVERYTHING that is not needed on a daily basis. Keep it all in one centralized location within the house for easy removal with each box clearly labeled (which room each box is going to, fragile, etc.).

Another good tip that I could offer; keep a roll of toilet tissue very handy as someone will most likely need it before you get everything unpacked. Good luck, I hope this helped.
