How to Organize Packing for Your Upcoming Move

One of the most stressful things about the whole moving process is trying to stay organized when packing for the upcoming move. Orderly packing is essential to smooth unpacking when you get to your new home. If you follow a few simple tips, it should help things go a bit easier before, during, and after the move.


1. Gather Your Moving Essentials

Before you start packing, it is important that you make sure that you have all the moving necessities. There are plenty of items that you will need to get your belongings to new home safely.


  • Boxes in various sizes 
  • Packing tape 
  • Bubble wrap 
  • Covers to protect television screens, mirrors, and artwork 
  • Sharpie markers to mark boxes
  • Box cutter
  • Trash bags
  • Plastic baggies

Note: If you don’t want to spend money on boxes, you can go to your local grocery store and liquor store and ask for boxes. If you don’t want to buy covers and bubble wrap, you can use clothes to wrap your fragile items and cover your televisions, mirrors, and artwork with blankets.


2. Pack an Essentials Box

When packing up your home, you are going to need to pack up an essentials box. In the box, you should pack toilet paper, paper towels, a few bath towels, toiletries, the bedding for each bed, pet dishes, and anything else that you think that you might need before you get your boxes unpacked. This step will save you the trouble of opening all your boxes in search of the things that you need when you arrive at the new home.


3. Keep Important Documents Safe

As you pack, place all your important documents in a large manila envelope and take it to the new home in your car. This will ensure that none of these documents get lost. A few documents that should go into the envelope include:


  • Birth certificates 
  • Social Security cards
  • Mortgage papers or your rental lease 
  • Any other important documents

4. Don’t Try to Pack in a Single Day

Packing should be a marathon, not a sprint. If you want to be sure that you are organized while packing, you should start early. Start packing room by room. When each box is packed, mark the box, so that the movers will know which room each box goes in. Be sure to mark each box on the top and the sides. Labeling this way will allow you to see the writing whether the boxes are stacked on top of each other or side by side. The last room that you should pack is the kitchen because you are going to need kitchen items up until the day of the move. When the movers come, make sure that they put the rugs in last. This will ensure that they will go into the new home first and you won’t need to worry about having to move furniture later to lay the rugs down.


5. Have a Moving Day Plan

On moving day, you should get to the new house early and label the door to each room, so that the movers can match the labels on the boxes with the labels on the doors. This will keep the main area from filling up with boxes that you will eventually need to move. When you are unpacking, the first thing that you should do is make all the beds using the bedding in your essentials box. This will allow family members to lie down if they get tired. Next, unpack the bathrooms. Finally, start unpacking the kitchen. If you get tired, go to sleep. There is no rule that says that you need to unpack everything on the first day. If you take your time, things will be put away neatly and properly.


6. Keep Your Pets Happy

If you have pets, you are going to need to make sure that they are safe and secure on moving day. It is best to take the pets to the new house with you and put them in one room with the door closed. This will keep them from getting out when the movers are opening and closing the front door. Be sure to give your pets something soft to sleep on and enough food and water to last them the day. This will ensure that they will be comfortable during the move.


If you follow the tips listed above, you should be able to make your move as stress-free as possible. Organization is the key to a hassle-free move from start to finish.

What You Should Know Before Moving to San Francisco

Moving to San Francisco is a life-altering experience. It is one of the trendiest cities in the U.S. and has something to offer just about any personality. It’s easy to fall in love with a city this grand. A good percentage of the 820,000 San Francisco population are transplants who were taken back by the tranquility and trendiness of the city. Although transplants love the city they now call home, most agree there is a long list of things they wish they had known before making the move. Here are some things you should know if you’re moving here for the first time:


1. It’s Expensive

Line up a good job (or three) or try to finish college before making this move. San Francisco is the second-most expensive city in the U.S.! The average rental rate is $2,925 per month for a small one-bedroom unit. Imagine the cost to rent a home if you have a large family! If you’d prefer buying a house, expect to shell out the average cost of about $820,000 for homeownership rights. Rental rates and home prices aren’t the only larger than life expenses with which San Francisco residents must contend. Before moving, thoroughly evaluate costs of living!


2. There Are Lots Hills

The steep hills in the city will cause your heart to race whether you’re going down them or coming up the first time or the 500th time! Prepare yourself ahead of time (if that is even possible) as these steep-sloped hills are not drivable by the faint of heart! Yes, they really are that steep!


3. Avoid Fisherman’s Wharf

Fisherman’s Wharf is an overrated tourist attraction with overpriced products and souvenirs. Now that you live in the Bay Area, you can avoid the area altogether without missing a thing. Many street vendors and markets offer the goods that you want at a fraction of the cost that you’d spend at Fisherman’s Wharf.


4. Grab a Jacket

Prepare for crazy weather. Yes, there are more than 300-days of sunshine in San Francisco every year, and the weather is nice most days. Yet, the sky still has a mind of its own. The forecast often changes without warning, and it isn’t unusual for temperatures to significantly vary from one neighborhood to the next. Make sure that you’re always prepared and carry a light jacket wherever you travel.


5. Brace Yourself for the Traffic

San Francisco did away with rush hour and chose to have rush day instead. If you’re one of the brave souls who chooses to drive, prepare to sit in traffic. It’s just a part of life in San Fran and residents are accustomed to the up to 2-hour daily commutes. Are the Giants playing a home game? Don’t even think about driving your car until hours after the game is over.


These are just a few of the things to keep in mind when moving to the SF Bay Area. While moving here might have some challenges, you’ll also find it’s a wonderful place to live. For assistance with your relocation, give us a call today!
