Moving in with your significant other is an important and exciting step in any relationship. As you begin your plans to merge households, be sure to secure a reliable and trusted moving company to assist you with all your storage and packing needs. Next, review your household appliances to decide who is contributing what to your new home and make sure you don’t have duplicate items. If possible, try to measure as much of your new property as possible so you can decide where to put your large furniture items and what to sell or get rid of before the move. Finally, try to schedule your move for a weekday when most people are at work, and avoid rush hour times to cut down on traffic.

Whether you are moving your belongings down the street, across the country, or into self-storage, you will likely need the services of professional movers to get your items to their final destination safely and efficiently. While many people opt to hire movers to save time and ensure their valuables are safe and secure, others pack up their own household goods to cut down on costs. If you are considering self-packing, here is how you can get your items ready for your professional moving team.
The first step in any move involves some basic planning. After you’ve created your moving timeline, don’t wait to purchase packing supplies such as boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, tape, box cutters, and color-coded labels. While you may be able to use materials such as pillowcases, sheets, towels, and newspapers that you already have around the house to save extra money on your move, it’s important to make a list of supplies you know you will need.
When you pack up your own items, try to get started as soon as possible. Packing early can eliminate last-minute moving anxiety and ensure that everything is packed safely and securely. Get started by wrapping up items that you know you won’t need. For example, summer movers can get to work right away on their winter wardrobes, coats, and boots.
Before your professional movers arrive, try to clear all doorways and hallways from obstructions. Your moving team should be able to come in and out with boxes and furniture both safely and quickly. If you are moving into self-storage, consider grouping boxes in areas of your home according to room so your boxes stay organized once they are inside the unit.
At Ayer Moving & Storage, we recommend requesting a moving estimate both with and without professional packing to make sure you get the best moving quote and get the most out of your time and budget.

Take some of the stress out of moving by making plans before the movers arrive to relocate your belongings. If you are a pet owner, there are a few ways that you can prepare yourself and your animals for the transition. Keep reading to see what to do to plan a simple and successful move with pets:
Get All Records Up to Date
As you start to prepare for your relocation, pay special attention to your pet’s records. Make sure his or her tags are completely up-to-date. You should also call your vet to collect your pet’s records, especially if you are moving far from your current home. If your animal takes any medication, pack it with you so you always know where it is.
Find a Place for the Pet on Moving Day
With movers walking in and out of the house and all of your belongings slowly disappearing, there is a lot of confusion for your pet when you relocate. If possible, ask someone else to watch the animal during the actual move. If you do not have anyone to take care of them for the day, lock the animal into a room where they will not be in the way.
Your animals pick up on your emotions, so it is extremely important for you to stay calm during the process. Talk to the animal in a soothing voice, offer him or her a few treats, and do not forget to provide plenty of food and water.

We offer reliable moving and self-storage services around the Harvard area to take some of the stress off of you during times of change.

If you are a record-lover, you might be nervous about your upcoming relocation. As long as you use the right materials, though, you can safely pack your records and prepare them for the move. Use poly sleeves to keep the records protected. You should also use boxes specifically designed for records because they are thick and come with lids. Check out this video to see how to place your records safely into the boxes.
Ayer Moving & Storage only uses the best movers to relocate your belongings to your new home. When you are planning to relocate, we can help, no matter the size of your move. To learn more about our moving and self-storage services, visit us online or call (888) 851-2802.

Any move requires a lot of planning and a lot of patience, but a long-distance relocation can test your limits in both areas. Before you worry that you do not have the ability to plan a successful long-distance move, take a deep breath and use this guide to help you begin:
Try to Remember that Time Is Your Friend
When it comes to a long-distance move, there is nothing worse than the feeling that you need to rush. Start your planning a few months before your desired moving date so you can be sure you have time to complete all the necessary tasks associated with the move. Book the movers as far in advance as possible, for example, so you know you have help on moving day. Make a timeline for yourself so you have a schedule to which you can stay accountable.
You Should Work with Reputable Movers
With so much uncertainty already associated with moving so far away, it is important to find reliability when you can. Hire dedicated movers who have a reputation for showing up when they say they will. If you know that your belongings will arrive on time, it eases your stress levels and gives you more time to focus on other areas of the move.
Make an Effort to Pack Slowly but Efficiently
It is even more important than ever to pack well when you are moving long distance. Buy quality cartons from the supply store to provide a strong foundation for your belongings. Before you start to pack, purge the items that you never use to lighten the load a little bit. Pack fragile items carefully and fill in empty spaces with plenty of packing paper or peanuts.
Ayer Moving & Storage is here to help you with all of your Harvard moving needs. Whether you are moving across the country or across the street, we offer convenient and reliable services. For more information, visit us online or call (888) 851-2802.
