Coordinate a Moving Plan

The best way to avoid a disastrous family move is to plan it months ahead of your move. This way you can coordinate with everyone’s schedules to pick the best time to schedule your move. Having a well-thought-out plan for moving makes sure that everyone knows what they’re supposed to be doing and that the most important tasks are taken care of. 

Declutter Your Move

All families have clutter. From outgrown clothes to equipment left from previous hobbies, your family most likely has unused belongings cluttering up your home, garage, and basement. Luckily for you, moving is the best opportunity to sort through these belongings and declutter your move. Not only will you end up with less stuff to pack and move – just to then unpack, but you can earn some extra money to put towards your move. Check out our guide on how to sell your belongings before your move to turn some of that clutter into cash. 

Reward Completed Goals

If you have younger children, it can be difficult to get them to cooperate with you during the moving process. In this case, it is important to set realistic goals for them to complete and to incentivize goal completions with rewards. Try turning the packing process into a game that will keep them engaged the whole time.

Move at Your Own Pace

Family moves can be a hectic experience, especially when you are being rushed by the moving company. Portable storage containers are the perfect solution for a complicated family move because it allows them to move at their own pace. That’s why millions of families across America choose portable storage containers as their preferred method of moving.
