Moving isn't ever easy. You have to deal with many things, including trying to figure out how you will get everything from one house to the other. That can involve renting a truck, finding a bunch of friends or family, and doing a lot of loading work. That may work sometimes, but if you are moving long distances or you don't have a lot of friends and family, that makes it a lot harder on you. However, there is a way that you can make things easier for yourself. That is to hire a residential moving company. If you are going to do that, you need to do a few things to make everything easier for everyone.   

Sort Through Your Things

One of the things you should start doing well in advance is sorting through all your stuff. You need to sort it out into keep, donate, and trash piles. The reason to do this early is that you aren't going to keep the movers waiting while you are trying to decide what will go with you and what is going to the donation center or the trash. Starting a few weeks before the move will also give you the time to do this a little at a time. 

Label Your Boxes

You also need to make sure that your boxes are labeled clearly. Not only should you label boxes by content, but you should also label them by room. When you get to the new house, you can put signs up on the various rooms so that all the movers have to do is look at the box, see what room is on the box, and go to the room with the correct sign. There are different ways you can do this. One way is to just write the room on the box. Another is putting different stickers on the box for different rooms. For example, a child's bedroom could be coded with a car sticker. All the boxes for that room have a car sticker, and there is a matching sticker on a sign on the door. This makes it easier for the movers because they don't have to keep asking where the boxes need to go. It will let them unload the box more efficiently. 

If you are gearing up to move, you should start contacting moving companies to see which company will work best for you. You can also do some things to make the move easier for you and your movers.
