Getting rid of things you don’t need
Moving companies help you transport your items from home to another. But there are items which movers won’t transport for you. These items can be donated, thrown away or used before the day of moving. It’s advisable to get a list of items that the moving company won’t move to be on the safe side.
If your house is with old clothes or things that you don’t use you can donate them to charity. Old clothes that you and your kids have overgrown can also be donated to charity. Hazardous materials such as chemicals, paint remover, flammable etc should be disposed off the right way.
Old electronic devices that you have in your possession can be recycled. Electronic companies will not charge you any fee for electronic devices that need to be recycled. This is a good way to get rid of all electronic devices stuck in your attics and basements.

Follow a particular order when packing. Pack room by room to avoid mixing items. For easy identification of the boxes it’s wise to label them with different color label. Each room represented by one color. Rather than labeling on the top of the boxes, label the sides such that it’s easy to see from far even if they are staked together. You can pack your essentials in clear plastic containers. These are things that you require immediately you are at your new house. Clear containers are easy to spot when needed.
Instead of removing all your clothes from hangers, you can wrap them all together using polythene. This reduces the time you will take to pack and unpack them. Once in your new home you just remove the polythene wrapper and easily hang clothes in your closet.
Personal items will be required any time and should not be packed in boxes to avoid the risk of getting lost. Things like money, certificates (birth, title, logbooks, laptop) tooth brushes and cleaning materials. These are some of the things you will require the next morning after moving.
