You’re packed and ready to go. Whether you’ve hired professional movers or decided to DIY, it’s not as much fun as you would think (lolololol)!

Here are a couple of tips to make it more tolerable and maybe even the best moving day you’ve ever experienced.

1. No packing on moving day.

This is non-negotiable if you want the day to run as smoothly as possible. Waking up to piles of items that haven’t been packed is a nightmare.

2. Be prepared with food and drinks.

Fill a cooler with water, energy drinks, and snacks to keep everyone hydrated and energized. Make sure that you have designated a friend or family member to pick up necessary meals for you and the movers. Keep everybody happy.

3. If possible, set up cable, internet, and utilities before you move.

Make sure you are at your new home during cable and internet installation, so that you can be assured that everything is in working order when you move in.

4. Keep your most important and valuable items with you.

It goes without saying that you don’t want to leave valuable jewelry, important documents, and prescription medications in drawers or packed in a box that is subject to loss or damage.

5. Create a basic unpacking kit and keep it with you (this is a genius tip!!!!!)

These are essentials that will help you get through the first few days.
