  • Make an inventory list: Create a spreadsheet and take inventory of all the things you will be moving. This will accomplish two things: First, it will help you remain organized throughout your move and keeping things organized will make your move go faster. Second, by taking an inventory of the things you will be moving you will have a record of your items that you can refer to if your possessions ever become lost or damaged.
  • Reduce the load: Once you have taken inventory of the things you will be moving, you should have a good idea of the things that you do not wish to take with you. Consider purging yourself of these items by either selling them or giving them to a worthy charity. You may also consider storage as an option for items that you do not wish to take with you to your new home but that you also do not want to sell or donate.
  • Find the right moving company: This can be a task. There are many moving companies out there so you should be careful when choosing the right one. Look over the company‚Äôs website, look for reviews online and speak to the owner(s) of the company. We are confident that after you have looked over our site, our Beverly Hills moving and storage will be able to meet your needs.packing
