Moving into a new house in Nashville? Moving marks an exciting chapter in your life, but it can also be a bit overwhelming. To ensure a seamless transition, it’s important to plan ahead and stay organized. Here are a few essential tips to help you navigate the process with ease!

Create a Moving Timeline

Begin by outlining a detailed moving timeline. Set specific dates for packing, hiring a moving company, and completing paperwork. Breaking down tasks into manageable chunks will reduce stress and keep you on track. Check out our Most Epically Comprehensive Moving Checklist for our recommendations on everything you need to do and when, starting eight weeks before your move.

Declutter Before Packing

Moving is the perfect opportunity to declutter and downsize. We all know packing isn’t the most fun, so the less you have to pack, the better! Read our tips for decluttering for advice on what to toss, what to keep, and how to decide when you’re stuck.

Pack Strategically

Efficient packing is key. Start with items you rarely use and work your way towards essentials. Clearly label boxes with their contents and the room they belong to. Make sure to carefully wrap fragile items and never overpack your boxes (!!!) unless you want everything to fall out the bottom. Psst….if all this is giving you anxiety, we can totally pack for you.

Plan for Moving Day

On the big day, make sure you’re prepared. Keep essential items like toiletries, a change of clothes, and important documents easily accessible. Have a plan for kids and pets. Double check that you have your keys to your new home and touch base with anyone helping you with your move. We’re biased, but we recommend working with an established moving company to make your move as easy and efficient as possible.
