When you’re moving, deciding what to keep and what to get rid of can be tough, especially if the objects have sentimental value. UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage of Central NJ offers the following suggestions to assist you in deciding what should be kept or discarded.

Only hold on to what you use regularly and consider space

If an item doesn’t bring you happiness or has a practical purpose, get rid of it before relocating. Keep only what you absolutely need with you, and if the item takes up too much space for where you’re going next, then it’s time to say goodbye!

Get Organized

Too many things can easily be gotten rid of by selling or giving them away instead of just tossing them in the trash. Consider this for clothes, furniture, dishes, and other household items you no longer need or want. And to not lose the possessions that you are keeping, label them clearly.

Is it useful and in good condition?

Inspect every item in your home for damage or missing pieces. If anything is broken, discard it, especially if you live somewhere warm. Examine the wear and tear on your outdoor furniture to see if fixing is required. Depending on the climate, repair or replacement might be needed.

We hope these ideas have helped you decide what to keep and eliminate when moving. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage of Central NJ. We’re here to help!
