Streamline your move by letting go of the unnecessary!

Spread the word through neighborhood signs and social media for a successful turnout. Remember, accept reasonable offers and make some money while lightening your load.

2) Sell gently-used items online: Expand your reach and profit by utilizing platforms like Facebook Marketplace, OfferUp, and eBay. Easily ship items that are lightweight and affordable to send, ensuring a smooth selling experience.

3) Dispose of household chemicals: Safely handle any hazardous substances by properly disposing of household chemicals. Ensure a clean and eco-friendly transition to your new home.

4) Plan for perishable food: Consume or appropriately dispose of perishable food items, keeping a few snacks aside for moving day. Minimize waste and enjoy a fresh start in your new space.

5) Remove items from walls: Take down decorations and personal items from walls, ensuring a blank canvas for your new home.

6) Pack seasonal clothes: Streamline your packing process by stowing away clothes that are out of season. Optimize space and keep your wardrobe organized.

Make your move lighter, simpler, and more efficient. Say goodbye to unnecessary belongings and hello to a fresh start!

Take charge of your move with these essential tasks

1) Pack and label with precision: Get the whole family involved and make it a fun activity! Grab a marker and clearly label each box with the designated room in your new home. This simple step ensures that your moving company knows exactly where to place them, saving you from extra hassle.

2) Consider additional packing services: If the thought of packing boxes overwhelms you, fear not! Opt for the convenience of a full-service moving company like Paulista Moving. Our expert team can handle all or part of the packing process according to your preferences. Just let us know your requirements, and we'll take care of it with utmost care.

3) Pack a suitcase with essentials: Don't forget to plan for the immediate days after your move! Pack a suitcase as if you were going on vacation, including 5 to 7 days' worth of clothes and essential items. This way, you'll have easy access to your essentials without rummaging through boxes. It also ensures you're prepared for any unexpected delays or mishaps during the transition.


Stay organized and prepared for a smooth move. Let's make your journey to the new home an enjoyable one!

Wrap up your move with these final tasks

1) Return library books: Bid farewell to your local library by returning any borrowed books. Avoid fines or penalties by settling your accounts and expressing gratitude to the librarians who served you.

2) Arrange pet care on a moving day: Pets deserve special attention during the move. Plan for a family member or friend to look after them on moving day, ensuring their safety and reducing your stress.

3) Prepare cash for movers' tips: Show appreciation for your hardworking moving professionals by tipping them at the end of the day. Keep at least $20 in cash per mover on hand, acknowledging their dedicated service. Generosity is always welcome for larger jobs that warrant extra recognition.

4) Book origin/destination hotels if needed: If your move-out and move-in days differ or if you prefer not to stay in an empty home, secure comfortable accommodations. Booking affordable hotels for the day before and the day of your move ensures a cozy and furnished space during the transition.

5) Find new homes for live plants: Moving companies often cannot transport them, so seek loving homes. Check with neighbors or friends who may be interested in adopting your leafy companions.

On Moving Day:

6) Take inventory of boxes and items: Maintain your own list of packed items alongside the one provided by your moving company. This serves as a reference and reassurance that everything is accounted for.

7) Keep snacks and water handy: Moving can be hectic, leaving little time for proper meals. Have a stash of snacks and beverages available to sustain your energy throughout the day. Don't forget to offer some refreshments to your moving team!

8) Conduct a final walkthrough of the house: Before bidding farewell to your old home, ensure nothing is left behind. Have everyone involved do a thorough check to guarantee a clean and complete departure.

9) Take time to relax and enjoy your new home: Celebrate your successful move by taking a moment to relax and appreciate your new surroundings. Unpacking can wait. Treasure this milestone and express gratitude to your moving team for their crucial role in making it happen.


Congratulations on your new home! Embrace the joy of a fresh start and savor the excitement of this transformative experience. Thank you for trusting us with your move!
