As with any big project, a move is a lot easier if you start planning early. Pre-move packing will save you time and money. It will also save your nerves from being totally frazzled on moving day.

In this post we'll talk about the little things you can do to make your move - before, during and after - just a little bit easier. And at the end,  we have a free Moving Guide to help you  prepare! Keep reading!

If you prefer to do your own pre-move packing, Victory Van can provide you with all the packing crates and material you need.

On the other hand, you might choose to take it easy and leave all the wrapping and packing to Victory’s trained pros.

Regardless of what you decide to do, you'll need....

The Right Moves

Pre-move packing will streamline your move if you follow these 5 moving tips to ensure nothing gets forgotten in the rush of packing.
  1. The earlier the better. Start as soon as you know you’re going to move and do a little at a time.
  2. Donate or ditch. Take a critical eye to your belongings to lessen your packing load.
  3. Handle with care. Your antiques and collectibles deserve special handling, and Victory Van can help you with that.
  4. Make reservations. When you call to book your movers, remember to make arrangements for moving large, delicate items like pianos. Victory is expert at moving those, too.
  5. Paperwork. Set aside vital financial and legal documents so they don’t get lost in the shuffle.

The Right Lists

Make your life easier with checklists for everything.
  • Keep tabs on which accounts you’ve updated with your new address.
  • If self-packing, number each carton and make a list of what’s in it so you can tell right away where something belong.
  • Keep a list of utilities to call and note down when you should schedule a service move or cutoff.
