Organize & Save Time

Moving to a new home is great – but the process itself is a daunting task. The worst part is that something always gets lost. No matter how careful you are something is always misplaced or left behind. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Everything starts with a detailed list

    Although this sounds like an obvious step, a lot of people don’t make a list thinking that they will remember it by heart. But that doesn’t happen. Create a separate list for every room and jot down what you want to take with you.

  2. Pack a room by room

    Don’t do everything at once, as you’ll definitely end up forgetting something. Start with one room and don’t stop until you’re completely done with that room, and only then can you move to another room.

  3. Sensitive objects should be packed separately

    If you have something super-sensitive like laptops or computer monitors make sure you pack that separately in a box to avoid any damage during transport.

  4. Label everything

    Be specific. Label each box by the room in which the things are from, but not only that. You should also make a list of things in each box so that you may know what your ‘priority’ boxes are.

  5. Make a photo

    Last but not the least – the best way to remember all the boxes is to make a photo of them before the moving van arrives!

  6. Hire a Moving Service

    Getting organized can be tough, that’s why hiring a mover is recommend. Sterling Van Lines can help you packing, store, and not to mention moving your items hassle-free! Call us today 866-266-6548 to get a FREE moving quote!

They moved a very old 1886 Steinway Baby Grand across the country and they did a wonderful job. Sterling had the best price as well. Tim D. Piano Move
Antique Move Testimonial
Sterling moved some antiques from PA to NV for my family. My main concern was that the pieces arrive intact and in good shape, and they certainly did.Shani C. Antique Move
