For most people, moving can be an exciting experience. On one hand, it means a fresh start in a new home. On the other hand, it can be incredibly difficult and stressful if you don’t have the right tools for the job. Whether you are moving from St. Paul to Minneapolis or changing apartments, a solid plan and the right Minneapolis moving company are important keys to a stress-free move. At Right Choice Movers, our packers and movers take pride in making your home move as simple and stress-free as possible. We’ve put together this handy list of four packing tips to help simplify your move.


1.      Declutter Before You Pack

Moving is the perfect opportunity to assess what you have and trim down your extra belongings. If something isn’t dear to you and you realize you can live without it, sort it into one of four categories: sell, donate, recycle, and trash. Most donation centers will offer a receipt for tax purposes upon request.


2.      Pack by Room

Few things make unpacking simpler than having each item’s destination labeled by room. Use color-coded stickers or labels to easily identify each room by its assigned color. When it comes time to unpack, you won’t have to worry about rifling through dozens of boxes to find something you need.  Our packing and storage services also include temporary storage units if you need to put a few things in storage until you’re ready to settle in.


3.      Use Handy Packing Hacks

In the old days, we had to muddle through packing with only bubble wrap and our wits. But in the modern age of the Internet, packing hacks are available in every corner of the web to make your life much easier during your move.


Here are a few of our favorite easy packing hacks:

●        Organize small items from screws to writing utensils in plastic sandwich bags.

●        Snap photos of electronics before packing so you can easily replicate the same setup at your new space.

●        Use item protection materials and packing supplies from your Minneapolis and St. Paul home moving service.

●        Use our wardrobe boxes to keep your clothes looking their best.

●        Simplify life with our packing and unpacking services.


4.      Pack Necessary Items Last

Few things are more frustrating than arriving at your new place only to realize you can’t find a thing you need. Consider using a transparent plastic tub to set aside the items you are going to need when you arrive. Make sure it’s among the last items to be moved and is clearly labeled.


Here are few items you might want to include:

●        Pet supplies

●        Kitchen essentials

●        Toilet paper

●        Hand soap, dish soap, and toiletries

●        A fresh change of clothing
