Packing is one of the largest parts of the moving process after you have looked for moving companies.  Many people use it as an excuse to thin out their possessions.  This can be a great time to clean out your closets and get rid of stuff that you don’t really use or need that much or at least get a self storage unit for a place to store all your unused belongings.  Why move items that you’re just going to stick back in a closet somewhere and never take out again?  Of course, you don’t want to go too overboard with your cleaning.  Sometimes, people end up throwing away a lot of stuff just because they don’t want to move it, but later on, they really wish they still had it.  If you’re moving and thinking about thinning out your possessions, here are some good tips. Do not forget self-storage is then also a brilliant option if you need to store possessions for any amount of time, we used this amazing self-storage service in Dunstable and they were brilliant so use something like that. If you don’t want to get rid of your belongings, then consider getting some wire shelving to keep everything organized. If you are planning to ship your vehicle make sure you get car transport quotes beforehand so you can plan accordingly. 

Donation is a Great Option!Ask yourself when the last time you used an item or wore a particular piece of clothing was.  If it was more than a year ago and there’s really no sort of sentimental reason to keep it, don’t.

Donate gently used items instead of throwing them away.  Many shelters, clothing drives, and charities will gladly take working electronics, clothing that’s in good shape, and other items.  This way, you’re not only getting rid of things you don’t need, but you’re also helping others. Consider looking into a bin hire company to get some Commercial Roll Off Dumpster Rentals to put all of the garbage and things that you no longer need. This way things are out of the house and you can better look into things.

Do you have family who would want certain items?  Ask your grown children, cousins, other relatives, and your friends if anyone would want the items you’ve decided you no longer need.  Often, you’ll find someone who would love to have these items, especially if they belonged to your parents or other relatives who have passed.

If you would like to have a little extra money, hold a garage sale.  You can sell off some of the items you don’t need and help fund a bit of your move.

Do you have items you know you’d want later but simply don’t have space for?  Maybe you have to move in a hurry and don’t really have time to go through a lot of your stuff.  If that’s the case, you might think about renting from this affordable storage units Sydney  services for a few months.  Once you’ve moved and have a little more time, you can start taking a box or two from the unit every day and going through them.  You may also be able to arrange your new house so that you have the space for some of the stuff you’ve stored.  Either way, make sure you don’t keep items in the self storage unit for more than a few months.  You don’t want to end up keeping that storage unit full of unsorted items for years!
