Packing your entire household for your upcoming move doesn’t have to be an overwhelming process. The key to making the process as easy as possible is to start early, to give yourself sufficient time to do it all in an organized and calm manner. Be sure to get on the schedule with the Wheat Ridge movers.  Here is a timeline:

  • 6 weeks before your planned move – start sorting through your items and deciding what to take with you and what not. Make three piles: one for the items that you use regularly and will go with you to your new place, one for the items that you don’t need, but can be donated or sold and one for the items that should go to the garbage bin. The next step is to sell or donate the usable items;
  • 4 weeks before the move – start looking for the most suitable moving solution;
  • 2 weeks before the move – start packing the things that you will take with you to your new place. Pack the items that you don’t use regularly, such as bedding and appliances, then work your way gradually. Use boxes as well as bags and label or mark each of them with the name of the room that they are for;
  • The day before the move – pack a moving day box or bag with the items that you will need on your first day, such as a towel, toiletries, a blanket and pillow.
