Moving Tip Monday: Self Moving Tips

From Movinggal.com:
Moving heavy items while relocating to another place can take a toll on your back. The best way to avoid back injury while on the move is to utilize legs for lifting items instead of your back. Squat down, grasp the item and pick it up placing weight on your legs instead of your back. By exerting pressure on leg muscles you will be able to avoid back injury. You can simplify the process of lifting boxes by distributing weight of boxes evenly. This can be done by packing items in various boxes, instead of loading all items in one single box.

When moving, keep your valuables, such as jewelry, cash, and collectibles with you.  Make sure they are secured in your new home immediately upon moving.  Thieves often target moving trucks and packed cars for these valuable items so don’t let them out of your sight!

Moving Tip Monday: Service Your Car

Before moving, you should consider getting your car serviced and tuned up one week prior to the date of your move.  Even if you’re moving a shorter distance, your car will likely be driven quite a bit and may be loaded up.  Plus after your move to your new location, you’ll likely have a lot errands to run to change your address, stock your cabinets and purchase other supplies.  In addition, it may take some time for you to find a new mechanic so it’s one less thing to worry about once you move.

Get a tune up, oil change, top off all fluids and make sure your tires are full and in good condition.  There is nothing worse than packing up your car and breaking down on the way to a new home.
