If you’ve already spoken to a lender at Sun West Mortgage, have signed the papers for your new home and are preparing to move, it can seem chaotic. How do you begin packing up an entire home? Sun West Mortgage has helped you this far, but the rest is up to you. Organizing your move doesn’t have to be a chore. Use a few simple tips to make it as smooth as possible.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

While you go through your belongings, consider what you actually need to bring with you to your new home. What can you purge, give away, or recycle?

Boxes

Go to your local grocery store and ask if they can save boxes for you. Most companies are happy to do this and there is a good chance that you will have a car full of free boxes by the end of the day!

Use What You Have

Use existing containers that you already own to pack your things. For example:

  • Duffel bags
  • Suitcases
  • Laundry baskets

Label Everything

Make sure that you have labeled every single box that you pack with the contents and the room it belongs in. Once you move to your new home, it will be easier to place boxes in the room they live in.

Moving is only as difficult as you make it. Be smart and savvy while packing your home to make the process easy.
