Langley Moving Tips and Tricks

We know that moving can be stressful. At Vic’s The Moving Man, it is our goal to reduce the stress of moving by providing professional moving solutions. In our years of experience in all types of moves – in Langley and beyond – we’ve learned some tips and tricks to help moves go more smoothly. Here are some tips that might help you with your next move.

Keep Your Supplies Together

Place all of your boxes, packing tape, markers, labels and anything else that you need for your move together. This will help you stay organized and make it easier to find whatever you need when you need it.

Get Plenty of Boxes

We’ve seen many people in Langley scramble to find more boxes after they run out during a move. A good tip is to get more boxes than you think you’ll need. You can always bring back or recycle the ones you don’t use. Set aside at least five boxes for last minute items on moving day. This will prevent you from throwing random items in garbage bags and losing track of them.

Label Your Boxes

Be specific when labelling. For example, write “Cups and Mugs” instead of “Kitchen.” This will make unpacking significantly easier.

Use the Opportunity to Purge

Moving can be a great time to get rid of some items that you no longer want or need. Throw a garage sale, donate items to charity and throw away items that are broken or no longer working. When you’re sorting through your belongings, make piles called “Keep,” “Give Away” and “Throw Away.” This will help you reduce clutter before you move into your new home.

Transfer Utilities in Advance

Whether you’re moving within Langley or across the country, the process of transferring utilities and services can be time-consuming. If you get this out of the way in
advance, you won’t have to worry about arriving in your new home without air conditioning or Internet.
