Packing for a moveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to Colorado Springs is usually a demanding time, both psychologically and economically. There are a few steps you can take to help ease your mind and spare your bank account. Hiring the proper moving company can also be an important part of ensuring an easier move.


Declutter and Sell

Getting ready for a sale as you organize a move might seem unnecessary, however it could offer some much-needed help. Decluttering prior to a move is less difficult compared to doing so after. When you have decided what you would not be taking with you, attempt to sell it. A few things could have worth to a specialty shop, but you can also check out consignment or possibly a garage sale. Not simply have you eliminated items you will no longer need, but you may also give a a bit more cash to your moving budget. In case you will offer anything in a yard sale, pick a day or two for the yard sale and stay with them. Whatever you do not sell may be donated anyplace you decide.


Boxes, packing tape, markers, and peel off stickers are some of the most essential components of your move. They do not need to be the costliest component though! Ask around for boxes and tape. If you are aware of another person that has fairly recently completed moving, you could be capable to get used boxes from them. A great deal of organizations will offer you the boxes from their shipments free of charge. In the event that you do not have packing tape already, you'll have to buy it. You might strive for cheaper sorts however steer clear of the cheapest variety. You don't need the tape to fall short for you. Markers and also peel off stickers are available in many dollar stores, which may save a bundle!

Color Coding

By organizing all your boxes along with pieces of furniture with color, there will be less of a probability a carton will be placed in the completely wrong area. You'll want to label each area of the new residence with a color as well. When it comes time, the boxes will find themselves on the moving truck by size and weight, not by space. By having the boxes color coded, once the cartons are unloaded, it'll be a piece of cake to understand exactly where every carton should go. So you have additional time to settle into your new area as opposed to trying to find where any certain box went.

Stay Organized

By the last few days of packing it's not surprising you are worn out and all set for the entire encounter to be finished. You are pumped up about your new space yet will miss the old to a certain degree. You've been surrounded by boxes for several days (or even weeks) and it is easy to end up getting complacent. If you let yourself begin putting random items in random boxes, it could make things quicker at this moment, but it will take you for a longer period to unbox later on. This may require taking more time away from work which has the potential to amount to more money.
