Never Move Without…

…Team Gale! We kid, we kid. But really, folks, we’re your best bet for every aspect of real estate in southeastern NC.

Buying a home is among the greatest financial investments you will make in your life, and moving is among the most stressful. There are several items to make sure you have ahead of a move, whether it’s across town or across the country!

WorkHacks blogger Julia Roy moved with her husband from New York City to San Diego last spring. The productivity queen weighed her options on how best to move their entire lives from one coast to another, finally settling on the PODS company to assist.

Roy’s recommended items for a smooth move:

1. Colored Tape – Color coding your boxes will make unpacking SO much easier!
2. Banker’s Boxes – You’ll appreciate having handles
3. Retractable Utility Knife
4. Tape Gun
5. Bubble Wrap
6. Rubber Bands
7. Furniture Blankets – Protect your stuff! You may have last minute items to load and no boxes of size, but fear not, they can be blanketed and banded them.
8. Mover’s Dolly – Wheeling around five boxes versus carrying individually. No brainer!
9. Plastic Stretch Wrap - You don’t want to

Moving Tips: Make Unpacking Less Daunting

Coldwell Banker Blue Matter has articles on everything from kitchen updates to ideas for holiday decorating to understanding real estate jargon.

Contributor Lindsey Chamberlain shared some tips for de-stressing the process of unpacking in your new place. Read her complete list here.

*  Clean your home or apartment before you move in! Areas like the kitchen and bathroom will be so much easier to clean without a clutter of boxes. Set aside some time to give the important areas of your new home a thorough once-over.

* Your movers and helpers are likely to be way more enthusiastic and limber at the start of the day, so move those big items first! Beds, couches, tables, dressers, and any significant appliances should be loaded in to your new space ASAP. It’s a practical maneuver too, so that you’re not shifting stacks of boxes out of the way or tripping over them when you try to arrange your room with the furniture later.

* Label those boxes! A color-coordinated system and numbers will help dictate what goes where, and what to unpack first.
