There’s a lot to think about and quite a bit to get done, often in a short amount of time. There’s the packing that feels like it will never end, the loading and unloading that gets exhausting, and the clock that feels like it’s moving way faster than you anticipated. Making a move is understandably stressful, and it’s hard to dedicate time to getting it done properly when you have so much else going on.

We’re qualified experts who can do  it all for you: securely pack, load, transport, unload, and more. All you have to do is set up your moving appointment, and we’ll handle the rest. Feel relieved? Good. That’s what we’re here. Bring us on board to help with your next move today, and see below for more ways to make the moving process easier on you and your family.

Time Management Tips for Moving

  • Set several sub-goals to achieve in the process of your move. For example, set a date by which you’ll have packed each room and another by which you will have everything packed. Other sub-goals might include selling or giving away items you don’t want to take with you, choosing a moving company and hiring movers. Of course, you also need to have a moving date in mind.
  • Set aside time each day for packing. Don’t try to pack an entire room at once or scramble to get everything packed the day before your movers arrive. Instead, pack things steadily over the course of a month or two.
  • Leave time for relaxing. Visit your favorite Durham restaurants, go for a walk on the Duke University campus or do other things that are fun so that you can relieve stress and enjoy your move.

Organize Your Packing

Mark each box with the room the items belong in. Discard items you are not taking with you before moving day so that the movers can easily see what they need to move!

If packing is an overwhelming proposition for you, hire a Durham moving company like Marrins that helps with packing. Some moving companies offer discounted supplies as well as Pack and Go services. Take advantage of these to lower your stress level and make packing easier!

Leave Transportation to the Movers

For the most part, you’ll want your Durham moving company to transport your items. Durham is full of narrow streets that can be hard to navigate if you are not used to driving a truck, and parking may be difficult as well. In addition, many Durham residences require you to use outside stairs to access the second floor, which can make moving heavy items in and out challenging. Professional movers are used to all of these problems and know what to do to get your items safely transported and put inside your residence. Instead of risking an accident, leave most of the moving to your moving company.

Using your Durham moving company also saves transportation costs. Rather than renting a truck and paying for gas on top of the truck rental, pay one flat fee to cover gas and transportation.

Personal Items

If you hire a Durham moving company, the only thing you have to worry about are your personal items, your pets and your children. Pack essentials in a small suitcase and take it with you and your family while your Durham moving company handles the rest. This will ensure a smooth, stress-free move in or out of Durham.
