Many people choose to hire a licensed moving company to make the process faster and easier. However, there is also something satisfying about doing the job yourself. Even so, it is still a lot of work. Thankfully, there are some hacks to make your move a little easier.
The first hack is to avoid paying for boxes. Instead, reuse boxes whenever possible. There is a good chance that you have some leftover boxes in the garage, basement, or attic. Further, family or friends likely haves boxes that you could use. If not, you could still ask your local department store for their extra boxes. Most stores simply throw out these boxes anyway. If anything, you are doing them a favor and helping the environment.
Another tip regarding boxes is to use a knife to cut handles in the sides. This will make them much easier to carry. This means potentially less strain on your back from carrying them awkwardly and less chance of dropping and breaking your items. Plus, it will likely mean transporting boxes faster as well. This may slightly help cut down on your overall time.
