Moving across town should be a little less stressful than moving from one state to another, but it does require some thinking ahead and careful planning. If you’re tackling a cross-town move, the better you plan, the easier the move will go. Here are some tips to make your move as easy as possible.

1. Purge Before Moving Day

Sure, you may not be paying professional movers for their help, but why pay to move items you really don’t need in your new home? Before moving day, take time to declutter your home and get rid of those items you just don’t need or use anymore. This will make moving day easier on everyone.

2. Decide Who Will Help

Moving cross-town can mean eliminating the moving company, but it doesn’t have to. Sometimes you can find enough friends and family who are willing to help you haul boxes and furniture to your new place, but you may find that professional movers can do the job more quickly and safely.

If you opt to have friends or family help, line up extra help in case someone has a conflict when moving day arrives. If you opt for local moving services, be prepared to pay by the hour for the help. Decide who is going to help with your move, and start setting up your help early so you can be certain it’s ready on moving day.

3. Overlap Time Frames

If you can, try to schedule the closing on your new house a few weeks before you have to move out of your current house or apartment. This will give you the freedom to tackle some of your moving tasks before your big move day. It will also give you the chance to paint, renovate, or clean before you move in.

4. Move in Stages

If you are able to close on your new place before your move-out date at your existing place, then you can begin moving items over slowly in the few weeks leading up to your big move. By doing so, you can limit the amount of work on moving day to just your large pieces of furniture and your most important household items.

5. Use the Containers You Have

When you aren’t moving across the country, you don’t have to pack everything into a moving box. Use your laundry baskets and other containers you already have to transport some items to your new home. Unload these containers, and return for another load. This can help cut down on the cost of your moving supplies.

There is a measure of freedom that comes from moving across town instead of across the country. Use these tips to make your cross-town move as affordable and as minimally stressful as possible.
