Moving Resources and Tips Make Transport Easier
Over the years, the experts at Folkestad have helped many Prescott customers move easily and successful to new homes in the area and across the country. Here, we’re sharing a few simple tips to help you can guarantee that your own move will be smooth and stress-free.
Lighten Your Load Before Moving
Take advantage of your move to clear out clothing, shoes, books, electronics and other things you no longer use or need. Our favorite ways for lightening your load include:
- Holding a yard sale
- Taking items to secondhand stores
- Participating in neighborhood rummage sales
- Giving items to family and friends
- Donating items in good condition to shelters or charity groups
Even if you don’t sell your unwanted items, you can save money – and help your community – by donating items and deducting their charitable value from your taxes.
Look for Moving Resources Online
The Internet offers abundant resources to help you prepare for your move. In addition to searching for more packing and moving tips or researching your new home, you can find or create custom labels to print onto pre-cut stickers. Use the labels to mark boxes based on the room in which their contents belong. Consider creating labels of different colors for each family member to keep your boxes even more organized.
Ask Friends and Family for Moving Tips
If you know anyone who has moved recently, ask if they have any spare cartons or packing material that you can use. You can safely transport many basic goods in a carton that has only been used a couple times. You can also reach out to your friends and family for moving tips, or even for help with organizing and packing your belongings.
