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

Moving to Killeen generally is a tense time, both psychologically and also monetarily. There are several actions you can take to help soothe your thoughts and spare your wallet. Choosing the best moving company is also a fundamental part of ensuring an easier move.


Declutter and Sell

Getting yourself ready for a sale while you prepare a move might sound confusing, but it could offer some much-needed relief. Decluttering before a move is much easier compared to doing so after. Once you have identified what you'll not be moving to the new house, try to sell it. A few items may have worth to a specialty store, however you may also consider consignment or even a garage sale. Not merely have you gotten rid of stuff you will no longer need, but you also can add a a bit more cash to your moving account. In the event that you will offer anything in a garage sale, pick a day or two for the sale and stay with them. Everything else you do not sell may be donated anywhere you select.


Cartons, packing tape, markers, and also stickers are among the most important components of your move. They do not have to be the most costly element though! Check around for cartons and tape. If you know someone else who has fairly recently completed moving, you may be able to acquire used boxes from them. A lot of businesses will give you the boxes from their deliveries free of charge. In the event that you don't own packing tape already, you will have to buy it. You could aim for less expensive kinds but avoid the cheapest variety. You don't need the tape to fall short for you. Markers as well as stickers can be obtained from the majority of dollar retailers, which may save you a lot of money!

Color Coding

By coordinating your cartons along with home furniture with color, there is less of a chance a carton will likely be placed within the wrong room. You will need to label each area of the new home with a color too. When it comes time, the cartons will find themselves on the moving truck by size and weight, not necessarily by area. By having the cartons color coded, after the cartons are unloaded, it'll be a snap to recognize exactly where every box should go. So you have more time to settle into your new area rather than searching for where any particular box has gone.

Remain Organized

By the final several days of packing it isn't unexpected you're worn out and ready for the whole encounter to be over with. You're pumped up about your new space however will miss the old to some extent. You have been encompassed by cartons for many days (and even weeks) and it's not difficult to get complacent. Should you allow yourself to begin putting random items in random cartons, it may make things faster at this point, but it'll take you more time to unpack later. This might require taking additional time off work which has the possibility to cost you more money.
