Tip #4: Unless You Need It, Do Not Take It

Prior to deciding to pack everything up to move it, give it a genuine once-over to determine whether you absolutely need it. That box of old projects from your freshman year... you can likely recycle that. The hand-me-down pan with the loose handle... you can take it, however is it worth the time and effort of transporting it since you could get another one sent to your new residence? That little group of gas station plastic cups? What about the trousers you've had since you were a freshman, but you still will not fit into?

There isn't any point in hanging onto something you haven't made use of, and don't need. Or even in taking something with you when it is simpler and economical to just replace it with a new model distributed by someone else.

Tip #5: A Bit at a Time Makes It All Easier

One of the keys to a efficient move is to make sure you do it in reasonable, bite-sized sections. Begin packing your non-essentials (artwork, extra sheets, seasonal garments, and so on.) a month roughly in advance so that you have them completed. Subsequently, prior to when you move, pack an overnight travelling bag with all your essentials (few sets of garments, toiletries, and so forth.). By taking it in small, manageable pieces, you can make a move in Dallas feel much lighter than it is.

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
