Looking for a fresh start?  A New Year’s move is the perfect way to begin 2018 and give yourself that new start.  As the premier movers in Kamloops, we would like to offer the following tips to make sure that your New Year’s move is a positive and stress free event.

The Right Moving Company

Choosing the right moving company can make all of the difference in your moving experience.  Some of the qualities that you should look for when choosing your movers include:

  • An accurate quote and competitive fair pricing for the services you require.
  • Reliable and hard working with experienced movers.
  • Flexibility in their schedule and a commitment to get the job done.
  • Professional services that can meet and understand the client’s needs and types of possessions.

When looking for a reputable moving company, do not be afraid to check up on their references and testimonials to make sure that they are the right company for your moving needs.

Get a Head Start

If you know the dates that you will be moving, do not wait until the last minute to start packing.  This rule also applies when it comes to finding a moving company – the earlier you start, the better the chance of securing a good price, as well as ensuring that you get the moving date that you want.

The first things to start packing are the items that are seasonal that you are not using.  This includes summer attire and other seasonal clothing and items. By starting the packing process early and putting away your seasonal items, you may be surprised how little packing there really is as your moving date draws nearer.

Stay Organized

Being organized is a great New Year’s resolution for everyone, but being organized when it comes to moving is one of the best ways to ensure a less chaotic and far less stressful move.

We recommend packing a checklist as well as using a general label on the outside of each box or storage bin.  This way when it comes to unpacking your items, you will know exactly what is in each box and can hone in on the most important and essential items first.

You can also use this opportunity to organize and think through how you want to lay out your new home and surroundings.  An organized and decluttered home is a great way to start life in your new home.


A fresh beginning and a new year is the perfect time to declutter and downsize.  Use this move as an opportunity to sort through your items and clothing and either donate, sell or discard personal items that you do not need or use.  Not only will this process greatly decrease the amount of packing that you will need to do, but you may also really like the freedom that comes with owning less.

These New Year’s moving tips will allow you to enjoy a stress-free move and more time to enjoy that wonderful start in your new home.  If you would like any more information or moving tips or would like to see how we can help you with your move, please contact us today.  We offer professional moving services at a competitive rate and provide excellent customer satisfaction.  We would love to be a part of your New Year’s move.
