All this change, this new life generates us a lot of hope, joy and happiness. Although, also, it generates us some nervousness, uncertainty or anxiety before the new thing to come and before the fact of the move itself, a heavy and difficult activity, in which we will have to transport all our life and organize it in our new house, to make it our new home.
All this means that the act of moving itself can become tedious and complex. Therefore, it is important that we organize ourselves well and find a way to make the best move. We must be clear about how we want to do it and contact all the parties involved so as not to leave any loose ends.

Don’t take everything out of the furniture
Some small pieces of furniture, such as bedside tables, do not weigh too much and it may be a good idea to leave the things they contained before the move inside. In this way you will save both packing and later unpacking more things than necessary.
Use garbage bags
Use garbage bags to put all the things you can. Garbage bags are large and cheap, so you can save a good deal on packaging material. Control the weight well and do not overload them to prevent them from breaking.
Name all the boxes
Label all the boxes, one by one. Put as much information as possible, if the material is fragile, the room it belongs to, the piece of furniture, the more information the easier it will be for you to organize all your belongings in the new home.
Use suitcases to transport things
Take advantage of your travel bags and your backpacks to transport your things. This way you will waste less time looking for and assembling boxes to transport things, and you will take advantage of the transport of the suitcases themselves that also enter the move.
Leave out the essentials
The essential must be more controlled than ever. There are things that cannot be lost, so you must know where they are at all times. It is best to put them aside and carry them separately. In this way you will be more organized and you will always have the essential things under control.
Distribute the boxes around the rooms
This advice links to an earlier one. Thanks to the fact that you have labeled all the boxes well, now, once they have arrived at the new home, you can distribute them by rooms and thus better organize the placement of all the belongings of your new home in an organized and efficient way.

In this way, you will be able to close the postage with the moving company so that everything is quick and agile, without any type of delay or shock with the date.
Report the change of address
You must report changes of address to various institutions. Do not leave it for the end and leave everything ready so that when you move everything is in order. If you do it right you won’t have to worry about letters, bills, notifications, etc., reaching your old home.
