These are some Quick Moving Reminders

moving tips: packing boxes from the old house for the movers to deliver them at the new house

If you’re renting, take photos of your cleaned-out old home and your new home before moving in.  This is essential if you ever hope to get your deposit back. It will save you major headaches with difficult landlords who charge you cleaning and repair fees unnecessarily when moving out.

1. Fill the nail holes in your previous home with a bar of soap.

It’ll save you the trouble of having to take it there yourself.
5. Make your last grocery trip two weeks prior to moving. The more food you end up using before moving, the less you’ll have to throw out.
6. For same-city moves, hire a sitter for the children and pets. The last thing you need is to be worrying about losing track of your kids or pets on this stressful day.

7. Remember to defrost your refrigerator at least a day before moving and wipe up any liquid.  Else you’re going to have a stinky, wet mess when you get to your new home.
