No matter how well planned, moving always come with curve balls. There are endless items on your checklist – things to declutter, pack, label, sell, wrap. Not only that, but some how, despite how much time and planning, it feels like there is never enough time. What do you do, then, if you find yourself moving last minute? Moving last minute is a reality many of us have to unfortunately deal with. Here are some good tips to help make it a success.
Hire Movers. Hiring professional packers and movers is the number one tip for a last minute move. Hiring last minute packers and movers can do everything you need for your move efficiently, quickly and stress free. It is indeed an investment, but a serious one to consider. Hiring professionals to pack and move any part, or all of your last minute move, will make a big difference.
Hire Cleaners. If you are moving in a hurry, you most likely will not have time to clean. Hiring someone to clean everything out after your move will save a lot of time and energy.
Use Trash Bags. Trash bags are your last minute move work horse. Throw any soft items into large, heavy duty trash bags. Be sure to buy the highest quality, thick and sturdy trash bags. Also make sure to label them so things do not get lost or thrown out inadvertently.
Leave clothes on hangers. Lay them flat in your car, or pack them in large trash bags with the hangers sticking out. You can also leave clothes in dressers. It makes it a little more difficult to move, but it is one last thing to worry about when you are moving last minute.
Ask / Beg for help. Order pizza and packing supplies, and gather friends and families to help out. One of the biggest regrets people have when moving in general is not hiring help or asking for more help. So whether it is getting friends or hiring a moving company for a last minute move, you need all the hands you can get, and fast.
Forget Organization. Organization takes time and effort – both of which are not available when moving last minute. Nothing will be perfect, and that is really okay. Be kind to yourself and others. The goal is to move. You can always sort things out later.
