Moving In: Packing Two Households Into One

In New York almost everyone lives in a shared space at one time or another. After making the decision to merge households it can be a difficult task to sort out what goes where and communicate that to your movers in Brooklyn, New York. Too often, not enough planning is done and a house ends up with plenty of coffee machines, but all of the couches in storage. Planning and preparation can prevent such frustrating situations.

The first step to moving in together is deciding what you will keep as a couple, what you will store as an individual, and what you will get rid of. Many people are reluctant to part with their personal furniture and choose to rent storage. However, you should be realistic about what you will actually use. If the furniture is not an antique or keepsake, and you don’t plan on using it within the next five years, it is often more cost-effective to sell or donate it rather than store it. However, if the living arrangement is potentially short-term, then you might want to look into renting a larger storage space to keep duplicate items.

If you are hiring movers & packers to help with the transition there are some things you should keep in mind. Most packing services do not sort items. They pack items for best-fit, according to room. The easiest way to make sure your items intended for storage are packed separately from the items moving to your new home is to have them sorted into separate rooms when the movers come. If this is not possible, have them clearly marked on opposite sides of the room. Whether you pack yourself or hire a full service moving company, make sure items going to different destinations are loaded onto the moving truck separately, and are clearly labeled. If both parties are moving into a new home, or using storage, make sure to discuss your choices for how to best utilize the moving truck on the day of your move.

Moving in together should be a fun and exciting time. Unfortunately, dealing with belongings can get a bit stressful. The best way to make sure that everything ends up where it needs to is to plan well in advance, communicate with your movers, and always clearly label your boxes. Following those basic tips, your move should go smoothly and be a positive experience.
