Moving in a Hurry: 4 Tips For a Last Minute Move

Ideally, you should have ample time to prepare for any move, because it is a process that is rife with tiny details and individual tasks. Unfortunately, sometimes, life comes at you so fast, and so does a last minute move.

Whether you’ve procrastinated or you didn’t have enough warning, here are 4 easy to follow tips that can help when a quick move is a necessity.

1. Start With The Basics

A last minute move can make everything seem incredibly necessary, while at the same time, very difficult to accomplish. It’s easy to feel paralyzed by just how much needs to get done, but instead of letting it overwhelm you, just get to work crossing the basic item off your list.

Are you going to move yourself or hire a professional home mover?

If you are going to move yourself, the first step is to get quotes from companies about renting a truck. If you opt for a professional home mover, your best bet is to get a few references from family members or friends.

REMEMBER: The sooner you have the logistics of your move sorted out, the sooner you can start working on everything else.

2. Get Rid of Anything You Don’t Need

One of the most important things you can do during a quick move is declutter. The less you have to pack, the easier and faster packing will be. So make sure to go through each room of your house and pull out items you no longer need or want. You can then separate these into three piles:

  • Recycle
  • Donate
  • Throw away

Pro Home Mover TIp: When decluttering, think practicality, not sentimentality. A move is a great opportunity to lighten your load and get rid of things that are cluttering your space.

3. Pack a Moving Essentials Bag

Before you start packing for your last-minute move, put aside a small bag and fill it with the essentials and valuables that you cannot afford to misplace during the chaos of your relocation. This can include:

  • Any important documents
  • Your day to day toiletries
  • Chargers
  • Medications
  • Smartphone, tablet, laptop, and any other devices

While this is an important step in any move, it’s especially critical when you have a last minute relocation, because things are likely to get more tiring and messy.


4. Leave Some Tasks to the Professionals

One of the biggest benefits of hiring professional movers is the help you get when things are really down to the wire. If you have hired a moving company, it’s okay to leave a few tasks to them, such as packing up and moving big furniture.

While you may end up paying a little more in packing materials and labour, sometimes this is the best option for a hurried move.
