Moving Day means the start of a new adventure. In starting that adventure, you’ll want to make moving day efficient. It can be as easy as 1, 2, 3. Follow these three steps:
1. Make a Packing Plan
Ahead of your move, make sure to create a timeline to follow. You can use our timeline as a helpful guide to assure you won’t need to rush to get everything done at the last minute. Quality preparation and a plan will make moving day efficient.
Before moving day, you’ll also want to create a checklist for when the big day comes. Even though certain items in your home won’t get moved until the truck arrives, you’ll still want to make sure you’re ready.
Oh, and don’t forget to label all your boxes! This will make unpacking even easier. That way you can start enjoying your new home sooner.
2. Reserve Your Truck
All your stuff is packed in boxes and ready to go. Now all you need is to move them to your new home.
First, it’s important to know what size truck you’ll need. U-Haul trucks come in several forms and sizes. Each vehicle is meant for a specific type of move, so there’s no guessing when you reserve your truck.
Second, consider using U-Haul Truck Share 24/7. Make your move more efficient by making the move work for you, on your schedule. With this 24/7 self-service program, you can reserve, pick up, and drop off your moving truck using just a smartphone.
3. Don’t Rely On Friends, Hire Help
Sure, your friends say they’ll be there to help load the truck. But even when they promised to be there at 8 a.m., they’re nowhere to be found. That’s even after you’ve offered them pizza for all of their hard work!
There are many reasons why you should hire help to make moving day efficient:
• Your friends ditched you
• You don’t have time to do it alone
• You’re lazy (It’s okay, we don’t judge)
When it comes down to it, moving is easier with reliable help.
Think about hiring someone from the Moving Help® Marketplace. On moving day, Moving Help® Providers will be there to help you, when and where you need them. One of the most important things they can offer is an easier move. It can be overwhelming to do everything on your own. That’s why it’s great to have reliable help come in and do it all for you.
