When the time comes for you to move, planning is key to ensuring a smooth transition into your new home. In order to make moving day as painless as possible and to help reduce the stress, take these steps to plan for and conduct your residential move. Better to have a checklist and tick them off one by one. This works even if you’re hiring moving companies in Dallas as they can give you a checklist.

Why you'll need to plan for a residential move

A move is a big undertaking, and it's easy to get lost in the process. There are a lot of moving parts, and getting them all straight can be more than enough to make anyone's head spin. What you need is a good plan that leads you through every step of the Dallas moving process.

Get an inventory of everything you own

Making a list is the first thing you should do when planning for a residential move. A list will help you keep track of all the things you have to do and make sure nothing falls through the cracks in the chaos of moving day.

Look at items that are special to you and might need special care during your move. Some things may be too fragile to move and others might need special packing materials before they're moved from one place to another.

Pack, dispose of garbage and furniture, de-clutter

Pack: The first thing you need to think about is how much stuff you want to take with you. You may want to consider renting a storage unit or hiring a storage company that can collect, pack and store your goods for you until you are ready for them again. You might also consider selling some items or even donating them to charity shops.

Dispose of garbage: When sorting through your belongings, throw away the items that are broken or no longer needed. It's easy for things to mount up over the years so make sure that you throw anything that is broken in the bin. Don't keep things that are broken and never use them again. This can add up to a lot of space in your home that you can use for other things.

De-clutter your closets and cabinets. This will allow you to organize the new things you will be bringing with you as well as remove the clutter from your home. The less clutter in your home the better. You won't have to clean up after moving day and it will help declutter the things in your life and focus on what is important in life.

Choose a moving company

A move is a big undertaking, and it's easy to get lost in the process. There are a lot of moving parts, and getting them all straight can be more than enough to make anyone's head spin. What you need are movers that lead you through every step of the moving process.
