  Here, at Boston Express Movers, we understand that moving is not an easy task. It's a bit hard to get yourself organized when you have so much to do. That's why our staff at Boston Express Movers put a moving checklist just for you. Feel free to print it and put it to good use.
   
  More Moving Tips
   
  IF YOU DON'T NEED IT, LEAVE IT. Avoid moving anything you don't really need. It is expensive, time-consuming, and physically unnecessary to move things you won't be using
   
  HELP TO THE RESCUE. You will get a lot more done, with some family members and friends helping you pack and/or unpack
   
  MARK IT. Felt pens are ideal for marking boxes with information such as its contents, destination room, fragile or this side up
   
  LABEL IT. As youíre packing, place removable, colored, circle stickers on your boxes to easily distinguish kitchen items, from bedroom items, from bathroom items, etc. Use a different color for each room. If necessary, make a master list so youíll know what is in each box. If you can go to your new home ahead of time, you may wish to stick a corresponding colored sticker on the door, or door frame, of the room that the box will be delivered to
   
  DON'T BREAK YOUR BACK. Cartons can be handled easier if they do not exceed 50 lbs., fully packed. Keep this in mind when youíre packing
   
  ROOM BY ROOM. Pack on a room-by-room basis, keeping the contents of each room in separate boxes. This will eliminate confusion and save time when you're unpacking. And once you move into your new home, set up ONE room in your new home as quickly as possible. This way, youíll have a quiet retreat, free of boxes. You and your family will then have a place to go when you need a break from all of the unpacking activities
   
  TAKE IT EASY. Even if you only pack two boxes a day, in thirty days you will have packed sixty boxes. Start in areas where the goods are not in frequent use such as the cellar, attic, garage, etc.
   
  ORDER ADDRESS LABELS. Order address labels before you move into your new home. They will be great to have on hand when you need to indicate a change of address on anything. Leave a few behind with the people who move into your old home or apartment so they can forward anything that gets delivered to them for you. Give them a few bucks to cover any postage costs
   
  JUST IN CASE. Make a survival kit for your first night in your new home. This should include items that will get you through the night if itís too late to unpack or the movers didnít show up. Helpful items to include might be: non-perishable food, can opener, paper plates, plastic utensils, bottled water, a flashlight, a few towels, sheets, toiletries, a blanket, toilet paper, pen/paper, a few small games or magazines and a change of clothes for everyone
   
  DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR KIDS ARE? If you have children, especially young children, it might be a good idea to have someone babysit them while you are doing anything that involves your move, such as packing, unpacking, etc. Your kids wonít be interrupting your progress and youíll accomplish more
   
  WOOF, WOOF. MEOW. If you have pets, be sure you have a plan for when the movers arrive. Perhaps keep your cats in the bathroom with the litter box, or put your dogs in a fenced in yard. Also, take care to do what you can so your pets feel comfortable in your new home. Bring their favorite toys, give them attention, and donít leave them alone for long periods of time for the first few days
   
  NO COOKING ALLOWED. Make the first night in your new home as special as possible. It can be take-out Chinese food, or pizza, but you may sweeten the evening with flowers, candles and music. It will really make a big difference and will help you to unwind and de-stress
   
  IT'S HAMMER TIME. One of the most important things to have on hand when youíre setting up your new home is a basic toolbox that includes basic tools and hardware, such as a hammer, screwdrivers, nails, hooks, etc
   
  ZZZZZZZ. As soon as the bedroom furniture is delivered, set it up and put the sheets on the bed. Youíll be grateful that everything is ready for sleeping later on tonight when youíre really tired
   
  HELLO, I'M YOUR NEIGHBOR. Once you arrive at your new home, schedule some get acquainted days on your calendar. This is a great time to figure out where the supermarket, bank, post office, etc. are and will give you a chance to get familiar with your area. If there is a tourist bureau in town, stop by and see what events and opportunities your town will be offering
