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

Moving to Oklahoma City can be a hectic time, both psychologically and monetarily. There are a few steps you can take to help ease your brain and spare your bank account. Selecting an appropriate moving company is also an important part of ensuring an easier move.


Declutter and Sell

Getting yourself ready for a garage sale as you schedule a move might sound unnecessary, but it might provide some welcomed relief. Decluttering prior to moving is much simpler than doing so after. Once you have identified what you'll not be taking along with you, make an effort to sell it. A few pieces could have value to a specialty retailer, but you can also try consignment or a yard sale. Not only have you gotten rid of items you don't need, but you also can add a little more cash to your moving account. In case you are selling anything in a garage sale, select a few days for the sale and adhere to them. Whatever you do not sell can be donated anywhere you select.


Boxes, packing tape, markers, and stickers are among the most essential components of your move. They do not have to be the costliest part though! Ask around for boxes and tape. If you know somebody else that has just recently finished moving, you could be allowed to acquire used cartons from them. Lots of organizations will give you the cartons from their shipments free of charge. In case you don't have packing tape presently, you'll have to purchase it. You could strive for less costly kinds yet stay away from the cheapest variety. You don't want the tape to fail on you. Markers as well as peel off stickers can be found in the majority of dollar retailers, which may help you save a lot of money!

Color Coding

Whilst adding a color-coded system in your move will not likely conserve your funds, it can save you lots of time. By organizing all your boxes and household furniture by color, there will be less of a chance a carton will likely be left within the completely wrong space. You need to label each and every room of your new residence with a color as well. When it's time, the boxes will find themselves on the moving truck by weight and size, possibly not by space. By having all the boxes color coded, when the boxes are unloaded, it'll be simple to understand exactly where each carton should go. Giving you additional time to settle into your new space as opposed to trying to find where any particular box went.

Keep Organized

By the final few days of packing it's not shocking you are exhausted and set for the complete encounter to be finished. You will be excited about your new space yet will miss the old to some extent. You have been encompassed by cartons for days (and even weeks) and it's not difficult to become complacent. If you allow yourself to commence tossing random items in random boxes, it could make things faster right now, however it will take you more time to unpack down the road. This could mean taking added time away from work which has the potential to amount to more money.

Hiring Professional Movers

Although there is a price connected to hiring a professional moving company in Oklahoma City, they will save you time as well as headache. You won't have to worry about recruiting friends that can help carry the bigger items, renting a truck and gassing it back up, and you won't have to stress about how long it will take you to move all of the cartons.
