1. Prepare Appliances – Run your wash at least three days before moving day and make sure all other appliances are dried and unhooked properly as well.  And remember to thaw your refrigerator at least once day before moving.  This could end up a terrible and time consuming mess if left to the last minute.

2. Color Code- Color code all of your items.  You can do this according to what room they will be put in. You should also label the room it’s going to and always what is actually in the box.

3. Pack an overnight bag- Remember to pack an overnight bag the night before moving day, you want it to have all of your essentials.

4. Pre Clean- If it’s possible make sure to head over to your new residence and do a deep clean before all of your things get there.  If you can’t make it (or would rather not) then consider hiring a professional cleaning service.  You’ll be glad you did!
