Prepare Moving Supplies and Boxes
Save time by doing a one stop shop for all your moving supplies. Buy your tape, bubble wrap, labels, and, most importantly, boxes all at one shop. Your local storage facility will have everything you need to accomplish a full household pack up. This way, you’ll be ready to start packing in record time with all that you need at your fingertips.
Pack Essentials First
Think about the items you use every single day to make sure you don’t forget to keep these handy around moving day. Create a seperate box that includes some kitchen cleaning supplies such as garbage bags, dish soap, dish towels, etc. Also, consider some go to toys your kids will want during the chaos of moving. And finally, some personal grooming items such as a towel, shampoo and soap might come in really handy on those long moving days.
During the packing phase is the best time to start decluttering and getting rid of those things that are of no use or value to you anymore. It will mean fewer items to pack and take with you on your move. Save yourself the frustration and get down to the items you really love and want in your next home. Not only is it a great way to ensure a fresh start, but it will also help move the process along much faster.

A local storage facility will be able to help you get the space you need for short term or long term.
