Spring and Summer are the prime moving seasons as the housing market literally springs into action after waking from a cold and sluggish winter. Whether you are looking to buy or rent a new home there is always more inventory this time of year so it’s a great time to try and find your ideal home. Not to mention the weather this time of year is much more pleasant to move in compared to cold, snowy months. If you are planning to move this spring or summer indulge in a little spring cleaning - here are some things you can tackle ahead of time in order to make packing and moving day move easy breezy.
- De-clutter: Throw or give away clothes that you haven’t worn in over a year, kitchen items you never use or have multiples of the same product and general clutter that you accumulate over time that doesn’t add value to your life. For valuable items that no longer have a place in your home but are still intact and in working condition, consider hosting a garage sale to make some extra bucks, and then give whatever doesn’t sell to Goodwill.
- Organize: Packing and unpacking will be much easier if similar items are already grouped together. A good way to pack boxes is by room, so that your Denver movers can put the right box in the right room to make unpacking less of a hassle. For storage items, consider labeling by both room stored and box contents like “Garage: Tools” or “Basement: Camping Gear”.
Moving homes is not just about moving day. Even though our professional Denver movers will help make moving day as stress-free as possible, taking the time to organize your belongings beforehand will not only make moving day easier, but will also help getting settled into your new home more fun than frustrating.
