Moving in Palo Alto? Here’s What You Need to Know
Moving day is rarely a breeze, but there are steps that you can take to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible. When you’re working with a professional moving company, you know that your items will be safely and securely transported from your current location to their final destination. What about everything that comes before your move? See how color coordinating your move will help make things easier for you — and your movers!
Create an (Easy!) System of Organization
It’s all-too-easy to add complexity when you’re creating a system of organizing your move. From a complicated spreadsheet to color coding that may not make sense to anyone but you, the KISS (Keep it simple, silly!) principle should be in full effect during a move. Experts recommend that you get tape and permanent markers in coordinating colors and give each room a color. The kitchen may be orange, while the master bedroom is pink, for instance.
The most important rule with organizing for your move is to stay consistent. If you start using one color for a particular room, stick with it! Otherwise, your movers may become confused and accidentally put items in the wrong place. This can cause you confusion as you’re unpacking and a lot of additional time and energy to move items around.
