Moving At The Last Minute – Tips To Help Get It Done

Posted on

Moving with little advance notice heightens the stress level tremendously. With so much to do and so little time to do it, you have to maximize your efforts to get everything done quickly. This article will provide you with a few tips that can help you get it all done while protecting the items you are transporting to your new home.


The boxes that you use will make a huge difference in how quickly you can get things packed up. Visit your local bar, beer distributor and/or wine and liquor store. There, you will be able to retrieve heavy duty boxes with dividers built into them.

The dividers in these boxes will eliminate much of the need to wrap things individually. You can use beer bottle cases to pack up your kitchen glassware, candle votives and other slender fragile items.

Wine and liquor boxes can be used for the larger fragile items. Those dividers will keep all of the pieces from crashing into each other and breaking while the boxes are being moved.

If you have houseplants, these boxes can help you get them moved. Smaller plants can be put in the divided boxes and larger plants can be put inside the heavy-duty boxes without dividers with little issue.

Styrofoam Plates

It takes a lot of time to wrap up your plates and picture frames. Instead of wrapping it all up, use Styrofoam plates to stack between each plate and/or picture frame. The plate will cushion the items much faster than wrapping each item will. Another great aspect of this packing method is you won't have to wash the plates when you unpack because you are using clean plates instead of dirty old newspaper.

Get Help

Moving companies are available for last minute moves. Sure, you won't have as many to compare against each other, but you will be able to find someone that is available to help you get your things packed up, loaded and moved into your new home.

Tip: If you have a difficult time finding an available company, schedule the move on a weekday. Monday through Thursday is much easier to find someone to help since many movers are booked on the weekends.

Your last minute move will be stressful no matter what you do. Find as many friends and family that you can that are willing to help, use a few packing shortcuts and find a moving service for rapid moving and you will surely get it all done in time. You can go to site for more information.
