Easy To Do Unusual Moving Tips
Moving is a pretty big process, one that can take up a lot of time. By knowing some great moving hacks you can save a massive amount of time and money on packing services as well as all of your other moving expenses.
We tracked down some unusual tips that you may not have thought of:
1) Clear pathways
Whether you are doing a DIY move or you have men coming in to do all the heavy lifting, if you have paths cleared it will make the whole process go a lot faster and smoother. Efficiency is key.
2) Take the doors from the hinges
If you have a lot of big items consider taking the doors off of the hinges. This will save a ton of time because you won’t have to waste it struggling to get things through each doorway.
3) Rent or borrow dolly
Instead of packing one or two boxes at a time you could be taking out four or more if you used a dolly. They are cheap to rent and definitely worth it in the amount of time you will save.
4) Wear the right gear
Never move items around without some good shoes on, if they are steel toes all the better. You should also steer clear of baggy clothing that could get caught on things and cause a safety hazard. Gloves will also help you get a better grip on things.
5) Choose storage over movers
