Before you even start to pack.

Find somewhere for your pets to go on moving day.
Moving is going to be very stressful for them. If you have a plan for them to go elsewhere, it will make the day less stressful for the whole family.
Take pictures of how everything is wired.
If you know how everything was wired in your previous home, it won’t take so long to set up in your new home.
Do touch-up painting for the place you’re leaving if you’re a renter.
Plan for touch-up painting the day after move out if you’re renting. This will help you ensure you get your safety deposit back.
Change your address.

Getting everything into boxes.
Cleaning supplies should be made easy access.
Chances are, you’re going to want to clean off surfaces as you pack things away. Have them handy.
Have a box for your first night there.
You’re not going to be able to unpack everything in one day – or even one week. Make sure you have a box of all your must-have items at hand.
Don’t put important documents in a box.
If you don’t pack them away deep down, you have less of a chance of losing them.
Start with stuff you don’t use often, then move on to the more used belongings closer to date.
This will minimalize rummaging through already packed boxes for that item you really didn’t think you would need until after move-in day.
Use suitcases and bags.
The more suitcases and bags you use, the less boxes you have to buy. You’re transporting them anyways, so you might as well fill them with your stuff.
Getting everything out of boxes.
Know where the furniture is going ahead of time – use a schematic.
This will make things much easier for your moving and storage NJ Company, and will help you understand exactly where your things are going to fit in your new home. This way, you don’t bring anything you don’t need.
Save the moving receipts.
Sometimes moving costs can be tax deductible. Save the receipts to be sure you get the most out of your move.
