Moving can be a lot of work and a lot of stress, but it’s also a great opportunity to get your possessions organized. To make the most of the opportunity, many experts recommend taking the time to do a thorough purge of your old home before packing. This way, you will only have to find homes for items that are important as you setup your new space.
A smooth cross-country move requires a fair bit of planning. Luckily the actual packing part doesn’t have to be a hassle, if you know where to look!
Moving all of your possessions a large distance can sometimes be a little difficult on certain items such as breakable dishes and clothing that wrinkles easily. If you want to show up at your new home without broken or chipped plates and a wardrobe full of clothing that needs pressing, smart packing is essential.
Moving day. The term is enough to make many people cringe. Most of us have had the pleasure (or, depending on your past experiences, displeasure), of packing our belongings into a truck and hauling them to another home.
Ten years ago, who would have thought people would be using their smartphones to schedule and coordinate their residential and commercial relocations?

You’d be lucky if you’ve never had to move in your life. Unfortunately, almost every adult has gone through the process, and very few enjoy it.
It’s even harder when you have an infant on board.
Moving can be stressful for parents and infants, and knowing how to move with an infant will make it much easier for your entire family. Reducing the stress involved and planning ahead will make it a smooth transition for everyone.
Packing dishes used to be one of the most nerve-wracking and potentially frustrating parts of packing. No matter how careful you thought you had been, there was always that moment of worry when you loaded up the van and watched it pull away: Would your dishes survive the journey intact? Would you come out the other end of your move with a mismatched set of only five plates and some broken pieces?
In the past, it was a common concern, and rightfully so: it was all too easy to miss packing enough stuffing around the edges and end up with a chipped plate or pack a box too loosely and have a glass fall over, shattering inside the box.
Before beginning to pack for your move, it’s always a good idea to gather all of the supplies you’ll need. That way you won’t run into the time-consuming and frustrating interruption of having to hunt down more boxes.
Many experts recommend cleaning house before you get started to make sure you’re not moving items you don’t want or need. Once your possessions have been narrowed down to just the items you are taking with you, it’s time to get packing!
Moving into a different office building can be a real challenge if you don’t take the right steps. It requires planning and coordination among all members of your organization.
