Tip 6

Set the stage for your move so that once your moving team arrives, they can get everything packed onto the truck quickly and efficiently.

Stack your boxes, take your big furniture apart if you can, take down hanging items like mirrors or pictures so you can pack them up, and leave open avenues for the movers to walk through while they collect things. Homes that are properly staged maximize the efficiency of your moving team and save you a lot of time, not to mention money. That’s also why you want to do it before the moving team arrives, because it becomes a useless gesture if you do it after they do.
