Packing for a moveBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to Tulsa generally is a stressful time, both emotionally and also financially. There are a few steps you can take to help ease your mind and save your bank account. Hiring the best moving company is also an important part of ensuring an easier move.


Declutter and Sell

Getting yourself ready for a yard sale as you schedule a move might seem counter-intuitive, however it can offer some much-needed assistance. Decluttering prior to moving is less difficult than doing so after. Once you have determined what you will not be bringing to the new house, make an effort to sell it. Some things could have value to a niche store, however you can also consider consignment or a garage sale. Not only have you eliminated stuff you no longer need, but you also can put in a little more cash to your moving budget. In case you are selling anything in a yard sale, select a few days for the yard sale and stay with them. Anything you do not sell can be donated anyplace you chose.


Boxes, packing tape, markers, as well as peel off stickers are among the most essential components of your move. They don't need to be the priciest portion though! Check around for boxes and tape. If you are aware of another person who has recently finished moving, you may be able to acquire used boxes from them. Many organizations will offer you the boxes from their deliveries free of charge. In the event that you don't own packing tape presently, you will need to buy it. You can shoot for less costly sorts however steer clear of the cheapest sort. You don't need the tape to stop working for you. Markers and stickers can be obtained from many dollar stores, which could save you a bundle!

Color Coding

Whilst incorporating a color-coded system to your move will not likely conserve your funds, it will save you considerable time. By simply organizing your cartons and furniture by color, there is a lesser chance a carton will likely be placed inside the incorrect space. You need to tag each area of your new residence with a color also. When it's time, the boxes will wind up on the moving truck by weight and size, not by place. By having all the boxes color coded, once the cartons are unloaded, it'll be a snap to understand where each and every carton will go. So you have more time to settle into your new space rather than trying to find where any specific box has gone.

Stay Organized

By the last few days of packing it's not surprising you are drained and all set for the complete encounter to be over and done with. You are pumped up about your new residence but will probably miss the old to some extent. You've been encircled by cartons for many days (or even weeks) and it is easy to end up getting complacent. If you happen to allow yourself to start throwing random things in random boxes, it might make things faster right now, but it will take you longer to unpack later on. This might mean taking added time off work which has the possibility to cost you more money.

Hiring Professional Movers

Even though there is an expense associated with hiring a professional moving company in Tulsa, they'll save you time in addition to frustration. You will not need to panic about recruiting pals that can help carry the heavy pieces, leasing a moving truck and gassing it back up, and you won't have to worry about how long it will take you to move all of those boxes.
