Moving Advice Every Realtor Should Give to Their Clients

As you help clients find and sell their homes before relocating, there are a few tips that you should give them as they work with movers in NYC.

Get Rid of the Excess Clutter

Moving is an arduous task, and the more belongings there are, the harder moving is going to be for everyone. Advise your clients to discriminate between what should stay and what no longer serves a practical purpose. If they have old appliances and furniture that they need to get rid of, suggest donating it to a charity like the Salvation Army. For items that are no longer usable and too bulky for regular trash collection, they may need to schedule an appointment with a junk removal service.

Label Everything

One method to staying organized is to label boxes according to where possessions will go in their new house beforehand. Each box can read, “Living Room,” “Master Bedroom” or “Bathroom,” depending on what is inside. Your clients will probably already know the layout of their new residence, so they can start thinking about where certain items will be placed. Each box can read, “Living Room,” “Master Bedroom” or “Bathroom” depending on what is inside.

Minimize Food Waste

TLC suggests planning to finish off excess food before moving so nothing goes to waste. A great way to do this is to make menus meals that use the food in your cupboard. Not only is this practical, but it will provide your clients with something fun and creative to do with their families.
