Get organized

One of the benefits of preparing your home for your movers is that the chances of burnout are minimal. When everything is in order, moving immediately becomes a less stressful endeavor.

So, remind yourself to get rid of garbage, preferably while you’re decluttering.

Give each room a clean

Secure the entryways and stairs
