The Ultimate Packing Guide

Moving can be a stressful and overwhelming experience, but with the right planning and preparation, it doesn't have to be.

As a moving company, we understand the importance of making the moving process as smooth and stress-free as possible for our customers. That's why we've put together this ultimate moving guide to help our customers plan and execute a successful move.

Step 1: Create a Moving Timeline

The first step in any move is to create a moving timeline. This will help ensure that you stay on track and don't miss any important tasks. Start by setting a moving date and then work backwards to create a timeline of tasks that need to be completed before your move. This may include things like:

  • Notifying your current utility companies of your move

  • Changing your mailing address with the post office

  • Notifying your bank and other financial institutions of your move

  • Notifying your current employer of your move

Step 2: Sort and Purge

The next step in your moving process is to sort and purge. Take the time to go through all of your belongings and decide what you want to keep, what you want to donate, and what you want to throw away. This will not only make your move easier, but it will also save you money on moving costs.

Step 3: Get Quotes from Moving Companies

Once you have a moving date and a rough idea of how much you will be moving, it's time to get quotes from moving companies. When getting quotes, be sure to ask about any additional fees that may be associated with your move. Also, be sure to ask if the company is licensed and insured. Here at Rowland Brothers Moving, we are fully licensed and insured to ensure the safety and security of your belongings.

Step 4: Pack Your Belongings

The next step in your moving process is to pack your belongings. Start by gathering all of the necessary packing materials, such as boxes, tape, bubble wrap, and newspaper. Then, begin packing your belongings room by room, starting with items that you won't need before the move. Be sure to label all boxes with their contents and the room they belong in, so that unpacking will be a breeze.

Step 5: Prepare Your Home for Moving Day

Before moving day arrives, there are a few things you need to do to prepare your home. This includes:

  • Disassembling large furniture (i.e bed frames)

  • Cleaning your home

  • Making sure that all items are packed, labelled and ready to go

  • Notifying your neighbours of the move

  • Arranging for parking for the moving truck - move your cars out of the driveway

Step 6: Move-in Day

The day of your move has finally arrived and with the help of Rowland Brothers Moving, your transition will be as seamless as possible. Our professional movers will handle all aspects of the move, including loading, transportation, and unloading of your belongings, ensuring that your items are transported safely to your new home.
