New York Springtime Moving Tips

|

In New York, spring is a buzzing time for all. Along with blossoming flowers and outdoor activities, spring in New York brings a surge in relocations. Whether you're moving across town or to a new city, the season’s mild weather and longer daylight hours make it an ideal time for a smooth transition. Here are some practical tips to streamline your spring move:

Start Early & Plan Ahead

It’s smart to begin your preparations early for several reasons. Getting packed up for a move may take longer than you anticipate, and you don’t want to be rushed and stressed at the last minute. Reserving your storage unit and moving service way ahead of time will ensure that you get exactly what you want. Create a moving timeline, make lists, and organize tasks systematically. Gathering your packing supplies well in advance can also ease the stress of last-minute scrambles.

Declutter Before You Pack

Spring cleaning goes hand in hand with moving. Sort through your belongings, donating or selling items you no longer need. Just be sure not to get rid of too much. You won’t know for sure what you will need until you are in your new space, so consider waiting on things like furniture and other household items. If they don’t work in your new home, you can confidently get rid of them then.

Utilize Storage Units for Transitional Items

Storage units come in handy during a move, especially for items that you won’t immediately need in your new space. Seasonal gear, infrequently used items, or excess furniture can be safely stored away until you’re ready to integrate them into your new home. This not only clears space but also ensures your belongings remain safe and accessible when you need them.

Pack Efficiently & Label Clearly

Pack room by room, labeling boxes with their contents and the room they belong to. Keep essential items separate and easily accessible for the first days in your new home. It’s also a good idea to put heavier objects into smaller boxes so they’re easier to lift.

Spring moving in New York can be stress free with early planning, decluttering, and smart storage solutions. CitiWide Self Storage can be your ally in ensuring a smooth transition, offering a secure space for items that need a temporary home during the move, or storage for your entire house if your new space isn’t ready yet.
