3 Tips to Consider When Packing Your Bedroom for the Big Move

Gearing up for a big move? For many, the thought of moving conjures up feelings of dread and anxiety. How will everything get packed? What will happen to the furniture? Will everything arrive at the new home in one piece? There are many reasons to consider moving an undesirable task. Yet moving doesn’t have to be so loathsome, and each packed room can get you closer to your goal. With a few tips for packing up your bedroom, you can approach your move with a more relaxed outlook, and find creative ways to get everything to your new destination safely and securely.

1. Sort and purge.

One of the best ways to get started packing your bedroom is to sort. Studies have proven that the more bedroom items you move to the new home, the more time you will have to spend packing up and the more money you will pay on the transport. If you’re looking for moving services in Hudson County, NJ, that can help you with this task, then look no further than UMEX Moving & Storage. When it comes to helping you get your bedroom packed for your move, we can assist by helping you with this tedious sorting process.

2. Gather all of your packing materials.

It might seem like common sense, but you’d be surprised to find out just how many people really aren’t prepared to box up their belongings. You’ll need a roll of good packing tape, some sturdy boxes, and an assortment of plastic bins. Whether you’re looking to move from Pennsylvania to New York, or simply relocating to another neighborhood locale, UMEX Moving & Storage can help.

3. Pack clothes systematically.

Unpacking giant boxes of unfolded clothing can be stressful. Especially if you don’t have weeks to unpack at your leisure, it’s important to have a systematic method for getting your clothing out of the old house and into the new one. The best advice we give is to use wardrobe boxes. By keeping your clothes on their hangers, you’ll relieve yourself of the stress of having to box up hangers and of having to rehang everything when you arrive at the new place. Looking for a moving company in Hudson County, NJ that can help you get all of your bedroom clothing moved quickly and easily? UMEX Moving & Storage is always ready to help!

Moving City to City? Consider These City Moving Tips to Make Your Move Flawless

No matter if you’re moving for a job, family reasons, or just to try something new, moving can evoke a mix of emotions, ranging from excitement to anxiety. In fact, moving city to city can be a big change. So, take tips from our professional moving company that serves Bergen, NJ and the surrounding areas to make your move as easy as possible.

● Simplify your move. Before you pack up your truck and get ready to move, make your move as simple as possible by getting rid of everything that you don’t need. Things like old, unread books and pieces of clothing that no longer fit wastes real estate in your moving materials, so before you make the big switch, donate or throw away anything that you no longer need or want. Simply can’t let go of that wedding dress or grandma’s armoire? A storage service like ours near Bergen, PA can also keep your items with sentimental value safe until you’re ready to show them off again.

● Set a budget before you move. Changing cities can be difficult. If can be even more difficult if you’re moving to a place with a drastically different cost of living than what you are used to. Use online forums and knowledgeable family members to calculate your monthly costs in your new city, and make sure that your savings and expected income can cover these costs. You don’t want to get to your new city only to find out that you have to move back soon!

● Choose a reliable moving service. Every day, more and more scammers are popping up and ruining consumer trust in moving companies. These fly-by-night moving companies prey on unsuspecting movers looking for quick service, and don’t take the time to properly pack your items (which can result in damages) or vet their employees (which can result in items being further damaged or going “missing” during the move). Before you trust a moving company, review their online presence. Most legitimate movers (like us) will be happy to point you towards customer testimonials or Yelp reviews.

Five Ways To Make Your Move Easier This Summer

Moving can be a huge ordeal. You literally have to pack up every single thing you own. You may even wind up realizing you have way more stuff than you realized. It’s easy to rush through the process because you just want to get it over with.

With moving and storage companies in NJ like UMEX Moving & Storage available to assist you with their expertise, you should still follow some guidelines to simplify the proceedings and make things easier on yourself:

1. Move During the Week
It might be more convenient to do it over the weekend, but that is what a majority of people do. Demand will be lower in the middle of the week which will bring costs down.

2. Lighten the Load
It will obviously be easier to move less stuff than it will to move more stuff. Parting with your things isn’t always easy. You have your things for a reason. Figure out what you really need and what you can do without. You can have a garage sale or utilize online services like eBay, Letgo, or Craigslist to make some extra cash. You can also donate whatever you have left over. Also, keep donation receipts for when tax season comes around.

3. Pack Early
Organize and pack non-essential items that you won’t need in the near future or don’t use often enough that you need to keep it out. During the summer, you can pack all your winter clothing and heavy coats. Old toys, photo albums, and decorative items can go in this early as well.

4. Label Everything
There are going to be tons of boxes. Label each and every one – the more details, the better. With so much stuff it won’t be that difficult to lose track of where it all is. You might want to even color code the boxes by which room they’ll be going in. It will help the movers.

5. Pack Essentials Separately
Think of using an overnight bag or two for those essential items that you’ll be using right up until you move. The best example of this would be toiletries like deodorant and a toothbrush. Water and snacks are also a good idea.
