Most of us know that while moving can be exciting, it can also be very stressful. You can avoid this hassle by clearing out unnecessary items before packing— in short, decluttering.
Our experience as a leading moving company has taught us that almost everyone has extra items hanging around their house that they could do without. Having fewer possessions means fewer items need to be relocated.
You can save time, money, and energy by getting rid of things you no longer use or want. If you don’t know where to start your decluttering session while you prepare to move your stuff at home, your commercial movers in Los Angeles, California, will give you some tips on where to begin.
- Plan first and set aside time for decluttering.
Don’t put off sorting and packing until the day before your local moving company arrives. Instead, declutter at least two weeks in advance and think of the essential things your house or office may need.
- Bring at least three boxes when packing stuff per room.
Take three boxes with you to each room you intend to clean out; one to store items you intend to keep, one to discard, and one to sell or donate before giving your stuff away to your local movers.
- Give your clothes away or sell them.
When you go room by room, decide what you want to keep and what you’d be willing to sell or give away to charity. You may help other people and get rid of the clutter simultaneously!
