Since they have relocated hundreds and hundreds of movers they know exactly how everything works, and what needs to be done. So if you have ever wondered how moving companies manage to relocate your belongings so fast, well, here are the answers.

The KonMari method

So what is this method all about? Well, it’s rather simple. All you have to do is to take all of the belongings that you own, and put them in one pile. Everything that sparks joy – you keep. Anything else, you say goodbye to. Now while this sounds simple, trust us. It’s probably one of the hardest parts of moving. So make sure you carve out at least a day or two for it. You will thank us later, as this will speed up your relocation tremendously.

I don’t have time to declutter, help!

However, if you are pressed for time, and cannot decide right now on what items to choose from, there is a solution for that as well. It’s a pricier one, but it’s still a better fix than having no solution at all. So what is it? Well, what we recommend in those types of scenarios is to hire storage services NYC. This way, you postpone the decluttering part for another day. Which is smart, if you are pressed for time.

Four hands are better than two.

One of the best tips we can give out that will help you speed up your relocation is to get help. Now, help can come in many different shapes and sizes. From hiring a professional moving company NYC to simply, asking your friends and family for help. The bottom line is, things will move faster if more people work on it. So, after you have decided what you are going to pack, it’s time to actually start packing. The best strategy we can give out here is to divide your helpers by rooms. One or two persons per room. This way you are working at full speed, making sure the packing process is as seamless as it can be. Secondly, when the time comes to move the items you packed into the truck, the same logic applies. Just ask the same people to carry the items that they packed.

The more help you get the easier and faster your relocation will be.

Speed up your relocation by hiring professional movers.

However, if your friends and family members are unavailable what we recommend is to hire professional movers. This way, you are going to spend a bit more money, but bottom line, you know that the job will get done expeditiously. Plus, you will have free time on your hands to do other things. More important things. Such as enjoying spending quality time with your friends and family.

Another “plus” to keep in the back of your mind is that you can bet that professional movers will take care of your belongings with the utmost sensitivity. Since a happy customer means more business for them. So they will make sure that they treat all of your items with the utmost care, so nothing gets damaged before, during or after the relocation is done. Unfortunately, moving with friends can be a bit risky if someone drops your items and creates unnecessary expenditures that way. So always make sure you keep these things in mind when deciding what to do.

In conclusion, what is the best way to speed up your relocation?

So let us conclude. If you want to know what are the best ways to speed up your relocation, let’s give you a brief overview. First, you want to make sure that you have the least amount of things to pack. This is done by decluttering and by being smart in deciding what to pack. Secondly, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Either from a friend or family member or by hiring professional movers. This way you will be able to do everything you could normally do only 2x faster. However, while there are some cons in regards to hiring professional movers such as the cost, we recommend that you hire them all the same. The reason is that none can take care of your belongings as a moving company can, and none can do it as fast as they can.
