DIY Moving Tips

If you’re planning a do-it-yourself move, you’ve probably done your research, and you probably have a lot of friends! You know the pros and cons of renting a truck and moving yourself. It can be a lot of fun to involve loved ones in the move, and they will enjoy being part of your big day.

Of course, there are downfalls to a DIY move. Here’s how to avoid them:

  • Understand what you’re getting. Some movers rent a truck and assume that it will come equipped with tools and supplies — or even movers! When you rent a truck, ask whether moving blankets, dollies and straps will be included in the price. If you find yourself in over your head at any point during the moving process, call CousinsUSA.
  • Gather the right materials. If you’re planning a DIY move, you’ll need to stock up on moving boxes, cushioning material (such as packing peanuts and bubble wrap), high-quality packing tape and permanent markers. It’s also handy to have a box cutter, basic tools (including Allen wrenches) and moving straps.
  • Hire a helper. Movers have specialized skill sets that can save you from making costly errors and save you from injury.
  • Create a checklist. Packing checklists and schedules will allow you to divide tasks among the family and plan them weeks ahead of time. Here is our go-to moving checklist.
  • Don’t overestimate your friends’ ability. Yes, your friends want to celebrate this rite of passage with you, but some of them have bad backs. Most people struggle to find friends who are strong enough to hoist furniture, and we don’t want anyone to get hurt trying to help you. If your college buddies make excuses why they can’t help on moving day, call CousinsUSA.
  • Know all the best moving hacks. Here are a few of our favorite tips and tricks for moving: pack kitchen knives inside oven mitts to prevent injury when unpacking; use rolling suitcases to move books; tape the bottom and top of boxes to reinforce all seams. Here are more packing tips.
  • Get rid of as much “stuff” as you can before you move. Moving is a long and tedious process, and so is decluttering. But ultimately you’ll be happier in the long run if you take the extra steps months ahead of the move to consolidate your belongings. It will pay off. On moving day, you’ll save space, time and energy!

Do Movers Pack for You?

This will depend on what you want. Any good, full-service moving company will offer both packing and unpacking services. While this will cost a little more money, you will save time while resting assured that your items are taken care of as they are packed by experts with all of the right packing supplies.

Be sure to ask if your moving company’s packing services are tailorable. It is good to have the option of having just some of your belongings packed, such as larger or more difficult to pack items. A good moving company works with you.
