A Guide to Moving to Louisville, KY

Moving to Louisville, KY from another state or merely from the next town over can be a hassle, regardless of where you originally lived. However, you don’t always need to dread the moving process, especially if you’re ultimately excited to relocate. Provided below is a comprehensive guide that breaks down some tips and tricks to help ease the transition and reduce the anxiety that often goes hand-in-hand with moving.

Packing Your Belongings

When you’re packing, make sure you organize your belongings into boxes labeled with the correct rooms as this will significantly reduce the time you spend unpacking.

In terms of safety, you should also take time to roll up carpets or rugs over which you could trip, and move furniture out of the way so that you have clear walkways throughout your home. Moving injuries are far from uncommon, and taking these steps will reduce the risk of any inconvenient mishap. However, it’s important to note that most moving related injuries are related to over exertion. So if you find that you simply cannot pack and load a truck on your own, contact a professional moving service such as Edward Neutz Sons & Daughters Moving or A. Arnold World Class Movers for assistance.

Setting Up Your Home

Are you looking for the most efficient way to unpack your belongings without losing your mind? Whether you’re facing stacks upon stacks of boxes or you sold almost all of your possessions before moving, it’s important to take the unpacking process one step at a time. What this means is that you should move the boxes where the contents will be going, and choose one of the most frequented rooms as your first place to start. Once the furniture is set up in that particular room and the boxes are unloaded, then choose the next most frequented room, and continue throughout the house in the same manner.

Finding Local Storage Options

It’s fairly common to overestimate what you will actually need in a new home. Maybe you’ve found that nine winter coats somehow made it into the moving truck. Maybe an old antique clock that would absolutely clash with your other home décor made it in there, as well.

In cases such as these, a good storage company such as Public Storage, Uncle Bob’s Self Storage, or Storage Plus can be a lifesaver. However, since there are numerous facilities available, it’s important to find the one that best meets your needs without breaking your budget. Keep in mind the size of the bay as well as monthly rental prices and hours before making your choice.
