Moving to a new home can be a pretty stressful experienced even for the most organized of people. It can be an incredibly overwhelming experience, and when you make mistakes, your irreplaceable belongings can be broken or even lost forever.


At Right Choice Movers in St. Paul and Minneapolis, we are professionals at moving and understand some of the basic mistakes that can cause a headache down the road. We’ve put together this expert advice to walk you through some of the most common packing mistakes so that you can avoid them and have a safe and happy move.


1.      Failure to Prepare for Your Move

Every detail of how you pack helps determine how successful your move will be. In many ways, there is an art to it. One of the most important things you can do is plan ahead for your move. Determine what you need and how you will pack. Work together with every member of your household to make sure everyone is in sync for the move. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get the job done right.


2.      Not Using the Right Materials

Failure to use the right materials for your move can end up causing you a tremendous headache when you arrive at your new place. One-size-fits-all doesn’t work when it comes to packing materials. We offer a wide range of packing materials to make sure none of your belongings get broken or busted. From packing tape to protective materials, we’ve got you covered.


3.      Handling it All Without Assistance

By trying to handle your move alone without professional moving services, you can end up way in over your head. This is especially true if you have a limited timeline to work with.

We will also make sure everything gets where you need it and that none of your belongings are lost in the process.
