The best approach to a successful move can be summed up in three words: labels, labels and labels. Beyond labeling something as fragile, you should also be thinking about labeling your boxes for destinations and items. You don’t have to include a detailed inventory but wouldn’t it be great to know which box holds your cups and coffee maker? That’s going to come in extremely handy the morning after the move.
Labeling your boxes with destinations such as living room, master bedroom, kitchen etc. will also compel your movers to do the work for you. After all you’re paying them so why not let them drop the boxes off where they belong instead of you slogging through the house? Labels can also work for the movers if you post a note on the door to the rooms where things belong. In a one bedroom apartment this isn’t much of an issue but if you’ve got spaces for kid’s rooms or the home office then you’ll want to make sure the right boxes end up where they are supposed to.
When it comes to boxes there is no such thing as too many. It might seem like a waste to buy boxes that you’re only going to use once. That’s why you should look into box rentals. Many businesses are popping up around Santa Cruz which offer plastic bins for you to rent, use and return for less than it would cost to buy all those boxes. And it’s good for the environment too!
A smart move also means knowing that what you’re bringing to the new location is what you really want. In other words, don’t bring junk. Moving is a time that always generates junk. You’re finally ready to let go of things which makes sense especially if you’re moving into a place with not as much storage space. Don’t be discouraged by all the junk you’ve discovered. Instead, let Junk King Monterey take care of it for you.
