No matter how much you think you have or how much you should carry, having fewer things to move with is always convenient. Sort out your things you own and carry only those that you are sure you will need. There is some stuff that you can sell and use that money to buy others in your new place. Light luggage will also save you money regardless of the means you use for moving.
Move at an appropriate time
Most people will move during the summer. It is wise that if possible, you avoid moving during this time of the year. The demand for the moving services is usually high hence you pay more. Get yourself some time when few people are moving to reduce costs.
Make a budget
This helps you to know how much it will cost you to move and how you can get the money. Visit different man and van services and ask for their charges and the services they offer. If possible, let them come to your home and have a look at the items you have and get an estimate figure on the price. Move with the ones who give you the best services and at a lower price.
Pack and label your boxes
Most people pack things in boxes. Whereas some cannot fit in a box, it is important to put some of the small things in boxes and label them. This creates accountability in terms of the number you have and also makes it easier to know where everything is when it comes to unpacking or tracing your stuff.
Do not be alone
You are advised to pack your own stuff yourself, but this does not mean that you cannot get people to help you pack. Have your close friends around who will keep you entertained. They will also discourage you from carrying some stuff, especially the ones that would want to inherit from you; but that is nice as they reduce the load and also have something to remember you with.
