How to Move In One Weekend: 4 Tips for The Procrastinator in All of Us

Has moving day crept up on you?  Did you procrastinate packing? Or plan a last minute move? Don’t worry, DFW Fireman movers are here to help make sure your move is a success! We know that moving is stressful, especially when you don’t have a lot of time to prepare. Here are some tips on how to pull off a local move in one weekend. Here are our tips on how to make the packing process quick and a little less painful.  

Don’t  Panic!

Your nerves can get the best of you if you let them, so take a deep breath and make a list. This list should include what needs to be packed, what moving supplies you need to purchase, for examples, boxes and tape, and in what room order you are going to pack.  This giant list will be your guide as you make quick work of packing the house. Pro Tip: Don’t waste time by hunting for a specific item as it will be found sooner or later.

Purge your belongings.

First up on your giant to-do list? Purge. Get rid of all the things you can before you begin to pack. Take a garbage bag and walk through your entire house. It is a great feeling to get rid of things you don’t need. Throw away broken toys, expired medicines, other things you’ll never use again. If you have borrowed items from friends and family, have them pick up the items before you finish packing. Donate any items you don’t need to a local Goodwill or Salvation Army and get a tax credit. Donation allows you to save money by having fewer items to pack and move.

Fill All Your Containers.

Since your dresser drawers are already filled with clothes, leave them there!  Don’t waste time and space, taking the clothes out and packing them in another container. Any items that can be used as a container should be, such as empty chests, appliance boxes, and suitcases. The key rule is; if it’s going to take up room in the truck anyway, so you may as well fill it up instead of leaving it empty. This includes using garbage bags for soft, unbreakable items such as clothes. A bag full of clothes can easily be squashed into a tight area of the truck without causing any damage.

Label boxes.

A helpful hint is to label every box you pack! Labels help you save time and not have to go hunting for things once you arrive at your new home. In fact, label or mark them on a couple of opposite sides and don’t forget to mark the breakable items as ‘Fragile.’ Don’t forget to indicate which room the box should be placed by your DFW Fireman Movers.  This will save you lots of time on the other end!

 

Achieving a local move in one weekend takes a lot of resourcefulness and imagination. Declutter, fill your containers, donate items and be creative about the items you use. Don’t forget to ask for help; whether you reach out to friends and family or hire our Fireman at DFW Fireman Moving. We are ready to help you get your local move done quickly and easily.

 

What Our Clients Are Saying

  • Last Minute Tasks to Do Before You Move

    Are you planning a move soon? If so, you’ve probably already made lists of what to pack, things to clean, and contacts to check in with about your new address. Have you considered those last-minute tasks that usually fall through the cracks and lead to moving day panic, though? If not, here’s your guide to getting those done before you go:

    Cancel Recurring Charges

    From magazines and newspapers to subscriptions that you don’t want to transfer to your new location, you’re sure to have multiple recurring charges that need canceling in the last days before you move. Do this a month before your move date, or as soon as you’re able to.

    Snap Photos to Make Life After the Move Easier

    The way cords connect to your electronics, the way things are supposed to be assembled or decorated – it can all be easy to forget in the chaos of a move. To keep it simple, snap photos of your larger items and collections before packing them so you can refer to those images once you’ve relocated.

    Pack a First 24 Hours Box

    Those first few hours after you move will be some of the most stressful, especially if you don’t have easy access to the things you’ll need right away. Pack a box with the following items to keep with you, so you’ll be able to get to what you need immediately:

    • Hygiene items
    • Bedding
    • Snacks
    • Garbage bags
    • Simple cleaning supplies
    • Clothing for 24-48 hours
    • Pet items
    • Favorite toys for children
    • Phones, tablets, chargers, etc.

    The most important thing to do when you’re wrapping up your move is to relax and reach out for help when you need it. When you need help bringing everything together, count on the local moving experts at DFW Fireman Movers to help you create the best possible moving experience – and make sure nothing is forgotten.

  • Moving with Your Pets

    Moving can be stressful in the best of situations. Adding pets to the equation creates a whole new list of problems that must be addressed before, during, and after you relocate. Here are some helpful tips for moving with your furry friends:

    Keep Pets Out of the Action

    Your pets don’t need to help you with the move, so don’t let them be part of the hustle and bustle of the move. Keep them in safe areas, away from the main action of moving furniture. They’ll be less frightened and remain safe from accidents this way.

    Put Your Pet’s Necessities in Your First-Night Box

    You probably know that your family will need a first-night box to access items of necessity right away once you’ve relocated. This should include your pet, too. Medications, food, favorite toys, and treats should all make it into this box, as well as a way for you to dispose of your pet’s droppings or mess appropriately.

    Touch Base with the Vet

    For families moving into a new area, you’ll need to find a new veterinarian. Contact your current provider to be sure that records are transferred or made available to you, so you can offer them to your new provider.

    Keep Your Pet Nearby but Don’t Let Them Explore

    Your pet may want to be let out of their carrier or want to stretch their legs in your new neighborhood, but they will need a few days to acclimate to their new home before this is a good idea. Let them get used to being near you in the new location – and understand that this is their new home – before letting them outdoors or into the rest of the house to explore.

    For the best experience possible, choose a moving company that is pet-friendly and understands the needs of clients with pets. At DFW Fireman Movers, we can help make your moving experience as stress-free as possible – for you and your pets!
