If you are moving a long distance, you might want to hire a moving company to do your move for you. Using a moving company can make your move much easier for you, because they can do the heavy loading for you and they can drive the truck to where you need it to be. There are also things that you can do to make your move easier for the movers, as well as yourself. 

Mark Boxes by Room

One of the things that you can do is make sure that you mark each of the boxes by which room they are going to end up in. You don't have to be really elaborate when you do this. It can be as easy as just using a different colored marker for each room, putting something like "Living Room" or "Dining Room" on the appropriate box, or you can go with something like sticking different colors of tape on the box, again color-coordinated by room. Doing this will make it easier on the movers, because all they are going to have to do is to put the right box in the right room. Make sure you label the rooms, especially the various bedrooms, when you get to the new house, so the movers can just carry things into those rooms. Another option would be to have someone who can direct the movers. 

Number the Boxes

Another thing that you can do is to number all your boxes. Just put a numeral in the corner of each box. When you get to the last box, make sure that you remember what that number is. The reason that you want to do this is that you are going to be able to make sure that you have all the boxes that you came with, and if there is a missing box, you can hopefully figure out which box it is easier. If you want to be really organized, you can create a master list that gives you a basic idea as to what is in each box. That way, if you can't find the missing box, you have a basic idea as to what you are going to need to replace. 

If you are getting ready for a move, you may want to have movers come to your house and do the work for you. You can make the move easier on yourself and the movers by doing a few simple things.
