Moving is a huge task no matter the size of your home. Packing up all your earthly belongings and getting your home clean for move out takes a lot of time and effort. Whether moving cross country or around the corner, here are three tips to help you survive the moving day.

All you have to do is tell them how you prefer things to be packed. Hiring professional help makes your move more expensive but can take so much stress out of this big life event!
Organize Before You Pack

Going through things can help you realize how many things you own and can help you simplify your life. When the house is organized and ready to pack you can pack like items in the same box and unpacking will be a breeze.
Moving day will go smoother if things are labeled well. Marking boxes for specific rooms or warnings if things are fragile can save you a lot of headaches. Consider color-coordinating tape or label colors. The more organized your labeling system the easier it is for others to help you unpack.
