This lets you discover how much space you’ll have in your new rooms.

Making Big Decisions

Decide whether or not you plan on hiring movers.

Conduct research in order to find reputable professional movers.

Keeping Things Organized

Move room-by-room to take inventory of your belongings.

Pack Rooms Together

Pack things that belong in the same room together.

Keeping these items stored together makes unpacking much quicker.

Zip Tie Your Electronics

Use zip ties to condense the space your electronic cords take up.

Don’t forget to label your cords to match the electronics they are used for.

Labels Are A Mover’s Best Friend

Clear labels make sorting through your boxes far simpler.
