You just found out you’re moving? In less than a month? No problem!
Yes, you read that right. As long as you take deep breaths and stay organized, you can pack and move your entire household in a short time period and stay sane while doing it.
Tips for a Quick Move
When you’ve got to be out quick, it’s crucial to streamline the process. After you’ve lined up an experienced, professional moving company, you want to get as organized as possible. An organized move makes for a speedier move!
First steps for a fast, organized move:
Call a mover ASAP. One month before a domestic move is best however we understand sometimes that is not an option. The more in advance the booking, the better.
Get three quotes.
Make a schedule and stick to it. Working back from your deadline (the day you have to be out of your place), map out when each step has to be done. This will help you feel less harried and put you in control of the situation.
Next steps to moving quickly:
Start right now. This seems obvious, but you’d be surprised how easy it is to procrastinate, even when you know you don’t have a lot of time. Don’t waste a minute at the start of your move. You’ll thank yourself later!
Gather your day-to-day essentials in one spot. Everything that you’ll need to use right up until moving day should be easily accessible—you won’t have to unpack any boxes to find that crucial item.
Sort and discard. Take your quick move as an opportunity to PURGE. You will feel lighter and have less to move if you get rid of nonessentials. Accept that you are going to downsize, and then start sorting. The classic purge sort system is this: make three piles—keep, donate, toss. Be ruthless! Note: many quick movers give in to the temptation to pack everything now and sort it out later. This is a rookie mistake. Sort now!
Group like items. This is prep work for your actual packing. Put boxes and packing supplies in each room, then start grouping and piling your belongings. Books, all in one spot. Office supplies, all together, and on and on. This makes packing much simpler.
Pack like a pro. All the advance prep you’ve done should make this part very easy. Of course, it’s even easier to have Platinum pack for you.
