Storage Tips

June 13th, 2023

If you’re planning a summer move in Lawrence, here are some tips from Store Stuff Self Storage to make a college dorm move, apartment turnover, or downsizing a smoother process.
  1. Plan Ahead: Start planning your move as early as possible to avoid last-minute stress. Create a moving checklist and timeline to keep track of tasks.
  2. Hire a Moving Company: Consider hiring a professional moving company to assist you with the heavy lifting and transportation of your belongings. They can help make the process more efficient and less physically demanding.
  3. Pack Strategically: Begin packing your items well in advance. Start with non-essential items and gradually pack up the things you won’t need before the move. Label your boxes clearly to make unpacking easier later on.
  4. Notify Utilities and Change of Address: Contact your utility providers to schedule disconnection at your current address and connection at your new residence. Additionally, update your address with the post office, banks, schools, credit card companies, and any other relevant institutions.
  5. Know Your Lease: Many leases start a week, two weeks, or even a month after your planned move out day. Make sure to know exactly how and when your landlords want you into your new place so you're never scrambling to get your belongings to safe place before your move in day.
