Tips I wish I had known before Moving

Lately, I have been reminiscing about when we first move to Las Vegas from California. Apart of me wishes I was a vlogger so I could have documented everything. My husband and I filled up our cars with some clothes and things that we would need to start out in our new place. Little did I know that we would have to make so many trips not doing it the right way. Shortly after moving into our apartment, we purchased a home and we had to start the moving process all over again. We didn’t have a lot but enough to were we could have hired someone to help us. Moving is hard no matter how many big or small personal items you may have.

Before I get into my recommendations my biggest reminder when packing and moving is having a box of essentials that you put into your car. Such as towels, cleaning detergent, soap, shampoo and most importantly toilet paper. 

For my girls that have plenty of clothes, makeup and accessories here are some tips on how to move those items to your new place. 

My first piece of advice don’t put your clothes in trash bags. (sadly that’s exactly what I did) Save yourself the step of removing the hanger, folding your items, putting it into a bag, unfolding and inserting a hanger, and hanging it in your new place. My first recommendation is to use a car bar to hold your clothes in hangers. By doing so you are not doing double the work and also avoid wrinkles. 

If you have a lot of handbags my second recommendation is to make sure to purchase inserts for your bags to keep the shape. You can purchase these from Amazon (I have some links here). By doing this you can place all your bags in one box and label the box. The movers will then know to not place that particular box in the bottom of heavier boxes. 

For all smaller accessories, like jewelry is something you pack and move yourself. It small enough for you to put in your own car and know exactly where it’s at all times. 

When we started to move our bigger items it was just my husband and I. We lived on the second floor of our apartment building. Bringing down a dresser, kitchen table, couch, entertainment center, and TV was the most difficult part. I physically felt like I couldn’t do it. I was scared I was going to fall while bringing down the items, get hurt, or break something.

After our move, we decided that if we ever move again we will hire someone to do everything. We have a two-story house and to be honest, we don’t want to go through the same stuff twice. Personally, I don’t want to have to stress about picking up boxes or items in the house that are much heavier than I am. Muscle Movers LLC Las Vegas has great reviews that I noticed on their website. When hiring them for residential moving they will make sure to take inventory of the items that need to be moved to know how much the weight and cost will be. If you are nervous to carry large items like I stated before, these professionals can carry your awkward couch or baby grand piano with ease. Truly these Last Vegas, NV piano movers are the best in the business. The best part is that they will give you free estimates so you have nothing to lose by contacting them. Always, look for reviews. Yelp is a great source to find how the interaction was with their previous clients. These are your personal possessions so you always want to feel 100% comfortable when hiring a moving company. 

Lastly, moving into a new place is always so exciting. It gives you the opportunity to start fresh and have new beginnings.
