Moving locally may be a little less complicated, but there are still a few things you can do to make your relocation go more smoothly. As one of the leading Jacksonville local movers, Baymeadows Moving and Storage has put together these moving tips gathered from our teams of professional movers.
Whether you are moving across town or the country, in Jacksonville local movers all say that one of the first steps in moving is to declutter. This is the perfect time to go through your home room by room and get rid of the things that are broken, worn out, or you haven’t used in more time than you can remember. You can donate the unbroken and unused items and dispose of the rest. Not only will this leave you with less clutter in your new home, but it will help you save on moving costs.
If possible, you should try to plan your move for “off-peak” times of the year. Peak times are typically the end of the school year, the beginning of the month, and the weekends. Try working with your local movers in the Jacksonville area to choose moving dates during the off-season or at least during the middle of the week and month.
Keep in mind that not all moving companies handle local moves. Those that don’t do so regularly might charge a premium for doing so. At Baymeadows Moving and Storage, we have been helping people with local and long-distance moves for almost 70 years. We will work with you to create a complete local moving package that meets your needs and your budget.
Moving is stressful, no matter how near or far your relocation is taking you. Moving into your new home can be just as stressful as moving out of your old one. If you take the time to use colored stickers or a marker to distinguish which room each box goes to, it will reduce the stress of not being able to find things. Marking your boxes will also make it easier for the movers to put them in the right rooms, reducing wasted time and stress.
