Move In A Hurry With 12 Actionable Steps

The pace of life these days is fast. We are constantly on the go and it can be hard to find time to do everything we need to do. When you’re in a hurry, what’s the one thing that always seems to get left behind? Moving!

It can be difficult when people move quickly because they will often overlook certain steps like packing their things up or moving their phone service over before the new place starts. It’s always good if possible try and get an early start on these tasks by doing them ahead of time which makes everything easier since there isn’t anything left behind! 

Whether you are moving into your first apartment or just across town for work, Treasure moving company is here to assist you. Learn more about our Maryland moving services

Here are the actionable steps that will help you move quickly: 

Start packing early

Packing early not only means that you can get a head-start on your move, but it also helps keep the mood positive.

We often spend most of our time in our home and then have to spend all day packing up everything which is stressful because we might forget something important! By starting earlier, this allows us to be more organized and have less to pack.

Pack fragile items so they are easily accessible when you need them during the move-in process

You might not want to pack up and label every single item but fragile items like glasses or china should be placed at the top of your box so that they can be easily found during the move-in process.

It’s always good to have a plan in place if you know where all of these things are going! Keep them close by and accessible so that you can find them easily.

For furniture, it might be a good idea to pack up your things before the movers arrive and then they will know what goes where! This also eliminates any confusion or mistakes from happening which could cost more money in damages.

If possible, set aside one room as an assembly area for items that need to be unpacked and assembled.

Pack your clothes, books, and other personal items first

It’s always good to pack your clothes, books, and other personal items first because these are usually the heaviest things. Packing up all of these heavier items makes it easier when moving from room-to-room or even house-to-house! This also allows you to move more quickly through a process which is helpful for those that are in a hurry.

Packing these heavier items first also means that you’ll have to pack up the lighter things around them which is easier than packing everything at once!

Sort through the things you want to keep and put them in labeled boxes

Sorting through your things and putting them in labeled boxes is a good way to help you move and it also helps with the unpacking process. If there are items that need to be thrown away, this makes it easy for both parties involved when moving as they can quickly dump everything out instead of going through every item one by one!

If you want to keep items that you think might not make it into the box, try and find space for them! This will help create more room in the boxes so that your things fit better.

Find a moving company that is affordable and has good reviews

We all have different budgets and it can be hard to find a company that fits your needs without breaking the bank. Finding a moving service with good reviews helps make sure you’re getting the best deal possible!

If there are any friends or family members who’ve recently moved, ask them for recommendations of their experiences so that you can see what the company is like.

If you’re moving during peak season, then it might be worth looking into hiring professionals because there will be more availability and they know what needs to happen in order to move quickly.

The best thing about this strategy? It’s a one-time expense that will save you time and money!

Make sure your new place is ready for you by cleaning it before you move in

If your new place isn’t ready for you, then take the time to clean it up before moving in. This will help cut down on costs because there won’t be any need to pay someone else!

It’s always a good idea to check out how much time is needed for repairs and renovations after checking out the property if either one aren’t done. If there are any fixes or renovations that need to be taken care of, make sure to have enough time for them before you move in!

Declutter your old house so it’s easier to pack up when the movers come over 

If you have a lot of things that need to be packed up before the movers arrive, then it’s helpful to declutter your old house so that packing up can happen faster. This helps with those who are in a hurry and want more time!

The best thing about this strategy? It will help create an easy-to-navigate space for the movers when they arrive which will help with moving and unpacking.

Get rid of anything that doesn’t belong at your new home before they arrive

It’s important to get rid of anything that doesn’t belong in your new home before they arrive so that there aren’t any mix-ups or mistakes from happening which could cost more money in damages. If you have the time, it might be worth sorting through things and putting them into labeled boxes like mentioned earlier!

It will save you from any headaches that might occur during the moving process which is a good thing for those who are in a hurry.

Decide on a moving date

The moving date is important to help those who are in a hurry. If there’s a lot of time before your moving date with some other things that need to get done first, then it might not be necessary to hire professionals. However, if you have less than two weeks notice on your moving date and don’t know how much longer until those other things are done, then it’s a good idea to hire professionals.

It will help save you from any extra stress that could happen during the moving process because they’re able to work efficiently and make moves quickly!

Create an inventory of what you want to take with you

Create an inventory of what’s going to be put into boxes, so that those who are in a hurry can know exactly which things they will need to pack up and take with them. This helps create more room for the items that you want moved because there is less space needed!

If someone else is going to help you move, then it’s a good idea to talk with them about what boxes are going where so that they can pack up the things in those boxes.

The best thing about this strategy? It will allow someone who is in a hurry to focus on packing and not worry about what boxes go where which will save time.

Make sure that all necessary documentation for the move is up-to-date

To make the move go as smoothly and quickly as possible, it’s important to have all of your documentation in order. This includes talking with your landlord about when you’re going to leave so they know how long before their new tenant can take over.

Most often landlords require that tenants give one month notice on a lease break or change but this may vary by state. Always check out what requirements for advance notice are set forth in any rental agreement before proceeding!

It will help save time because there won’t be any need for back-and-forth conversation and can help save on time.

Take pictures of anything you might forget about in order to remember what is inside each box

Lastly, it’s important to take pictures of anything you might forget about so that when the movers come over they can pack up those things with ease!

This strategy is something that will help save time because there won’t have to be any guessing on what goes into which box and prevents double-packing.

It will prevent mistakes from happening like forgetting an item inside one of your boxes! This way nothing gets left behind or forgotten in a pile somewhere.

In the end, it is vital to have a plan in place. A simple checklist should be created with all of the tasks that need to be completed before an individual moves from their current residence into a new one. This will help them stay on top of everything and keep things moving smoothly since they won’t miss anything!

What Our Clients Say

I wish I had more time to tell you just how wonderful Fedor and his Treasures crew were with my recent move. I just started a new job in a new state. I had trouble with towing my car with my moving truck. I had to concentrate on that problem when Treasures was taking my items from moving truck to new apartment. They got everything done nicely and affordably. They were my “knights (movers) in shining armor “! The most dependable and capable moving group I’ve ever had! Update: Nov 2023: I used Treasure Moving again, and they did a great job again! I had them put some boxes and tubs of items in my new storage room. Melvin and Moises did a quick and efficient moving of items from apartment to storage. They organized my boxes in storage to where I’ll be able to walk in the room and get to any box, They were fantastic! I’ll use Treasure again and again!

This was the smoothest moving experience we had ! Highly recommend. We moved from Arlington VA to Clarksburg MD. Marlon and Carlos were on time, packed everything carefully, moved everything to our new place in just a few hours! Here's the kicker, the freight elevator in our building could not be reserved due to construction. But they moved everything anyway! If the elevator was available, we are sure these guys would have completed the task in under an hour. They are super considerate, kind and efficient. Could not recommend them more. Treasure moving company is a treasure and Marlon and Carlos were excellent !

I used many movers in Baltimore (>4. I lost count). I used Treasure once and I was so impressed with their fair pricing, careful handling, speed, and professionalism at the time. They provided the best moving experience that I remember in this City. So, I moved again today and used their services to pack my pod. I had Marlon and Carlos who were spectacular. The woman reserving my move was available nearly daily to answer questions and was super attentive leading to the move. I was not disappointed. I highly recommend them for your next move, whether you a need hand with a pod or request full service moves. After talking to the workers, I learned that they have >15 years of experience in the moving industry. *Be careful when you looking for moving companies here. Some of them are not professional movers. I had a mover cause major damage… that they had to return to make repairs (Charm City Movers). Another left the job within 30 minutes of the move and left my all my items/boxes on the side walk! More than likely, Treasure will do a good job!

Dennys and Rony did a great job moving 3 large display cabinets and many heavy boxes from Taneytown back to Columbia. They wasted no time and took care of everything like they were their own, and fees were much less than expected. Treasure Moving should be proud to have both of them as representatives. Kudos to a great team!!!

The crew was courteous, careful and cheerful. Prices were reasonable as well. Definitely recommend!
Dennis and Rony arrived just before they were scheduled, wrapped and moved the requested furniture, moved it, and set it up at the destination, quickly and politely, all for a very reasonable price.
