Moving is expensive and very stressful as well!!
You have to pay your professional movers and funding everything that goes along with it. I know, sorting through all belongings and deciding what what to bring and what stays behind it’s not easy.
Last week I had a client that moved from Texas to New Jersey into a beautiful house in Marlboro. Surrounded by about 100 boxes, my client Betty was very overwhelmed by this move and didn’t know where to start. She contacted me to help her with moving -In service. Since I only spoke with her over the phone, I didn’t know how big this moving service was but based on my experience I knew it will probably will take about 3 days.
When I arrived with my other associate, we discovered lots of boxes and clutter through out the entire house. I wasn’t surprised that about 30 percent of her belongings should not be packed in the first place. It took us additional time to go through what to keep, donate and discard.
Here is some advice:
It’s very important to go over clutter and all your belongings before you move and only take what you need. Please note that it will cost you so much more for packing unwanted clothes, paperwork, unwanted furniture and then moving all those additional boxes.
The best thing to do is first unclutter your spaces before you move by organizing moving sale/tag sale and give away to your friends and charities. Believe me, at the end it will cost you less stress and money to move to your new home.
