The moving process can be overwhelming, especially if it is your first time. There are so many different checklist items to adhere to that it’s common to miss a couple of steps and make a few mistakes in the process. If you are currently planning your big move to New York, make sure to take a break from the packing and planning and review CRS Moving & Storage’s guide to common mistakes people make during the moving process.
CRS Moving & Storage is a commercial moving company with five locations across the tri-state area. We are here to help alleviate some common stressors typically associated with the relocation process so you can avoid any mistakes or pitfalls.
3 Common Mistakes Made When People Move to New York
The moving process can be stressful enough as is, so there’s no reason to add easily-avoidable mistakes into the mix. Three common mistakes people make when moving include:
Moving is more than finding a new place to live and packing your belongings up. There are many important aspects of moving to consider and plan for, such as:
- When do you need to be out of your current living situation?
- How are you getting to your new destination?
- How are you getting your belongings to your new destination?
- If you are paying someone to ship your furniture, how long will it take?
Putting together a logistics plan can be helpful to make sure your move goes as smoothly as possible. Know what items are being shipped and how long it will take, and plan time to return your key to your previous complex and leave time for cleaning. CRS Moving & Storage also provides a free logistics plan to all of our customers to discuss the specific details of your move and ensure everything arrives exactly on time.
Not Enough Packing Supplies
You likely are going to need more than just boxes for your move. Ensuring your valuable and fragile items are not broken in the move is important. You can make sure of this by purchasing padding paper, bubble wrap, and appropriately-sized boxes. There’s no worse feeling than finally getting to your brand-new New York apartment and realizing all of your plates and cups were destroyed in their boxes.
You Don’t Label Your Boxes
You’ve made it to your new home in one piece, and everything seems intact. You have ten boxes here and ten boxes there, and… what is in them? The unpacking and setting up process is the last component of a move, and it’s arguably just as important as the other parts of the process.
It takes a few extra seconds, but make sure you label your boxes. Even if it’s as simple as “kitchen” or “office,” it will save you time in the long run. You and your movers will know exactly where to put the boxes to make the setup as painless as possible.
