Veterans Moving America Moving Tips Fort Worth Movers Dallas Movers

Welcome to Veterans Moving America's #MovingTipMonday!  We know that moving is a stressful time for everyone and that moving can be complicated.  That's why we've decided to try and help by providing our readers with moving tips every Monday!  Subscribe to our blog to get notified whenever we post a new tip!

Today's Tip:

Label rooms in your new home to speed up your move and save some money.

The layout of your new home might make sense to you, but to your movers it can be like a maze. (Maybe for you too)  There are a 3 simple things you can do make the unloading process easier, faster, and (at the end of the day) cheaper.

1. Label your boxes for where they GO, not where they're FROM.

Don't label your boxes based on where they came from in your old house.  Instead, label them for where you want them to go in your new house.  Doing this can save a lot of time and confusion when it comes to unloading.

I know what you're thinking: What if I don't know where I'm going to put something? Simple solution: have a designated area to put things that don't have a final destination yet.  Problem solved.

2. Label your boxes in ways that you AND your movers can understand.

Labeling a box "Jen's Crap" or "Miscellaneous" may make sense to you, but to a mover, it means nothing. They don't know where Jen's crap goes or what what miscellaneous means, which means they will have to ask you where to put it.  Asking where things go is a normal part of the unloading process, but when your team has to ask where almost every box goes, it slows things down and costs you more money.  (Time = Money)

See the lists below for examples of good labeling and bad labeling practices:

Bad Labels

  • Jen's Crap
  • Upstairs Stuff
  • Downstairs
  • Miscellaneous
  • Who cares (real-world example)
  • I give up (real-world example)
  • :*-(     (real world example)

Good Labels

  • Master Closet
  • Living Room
  • Upstairs Media Room
  • Garage
  • Entry Closet
  • Upstairs Pink Room (Jen)
  • Etc.

3. Put labels outside of each room or area before your movers arrive.

Labeling each room can help keep things easy to remember for your moving team.  Use post-it notes or large pieces of paper to write the name of each room (Ex. Jen's Room, Master Bedroom, etc.) on the outside of each room/area.

Happy Packing!
