Hiring movers is a great option if you can’t get help from friends or family. It saves you time and stress. Before you move, let your cable, gas, and electric companies know your new address. Get rid of things you don’t need before you pack. Doing so saves you money on moving boxes and makes unpacking easier.

Don’t wait until the last minute. Instead, pack a little bit each day to avoid feeling overwhelmed. Pack a separate bag with things you’ll need right away, like toiletries and pajamas. Use different colored labels for each room so you know where to put everything when you unpack.

Boxes that are too heavy are hard to move and might break. Pack heavy things like books in small boxes and light items like clothes in larger boxes. Use packing peanuts or crumpled newspaper to fill empty spaces in boxes, so your stuff doesn’t move around and break. Wrap things like glasses and plates in bubble wrap or packing paper before you pack them in a box. Watch this video for more tips from long distance moving services.
