When moving home, one of the crucial questions you may face is whether your habitat requires downsizing. Moving to a new residence, state, or country may mean preparing for new challenges. There may be several different things you will no longer need in the new place. Here is when you need an expert like us recommending you the best tips to downsize your home and make the move more planned and organized. But before that, you need to know why downsizing is important. What’s the use of carrying that old sofa simply because you swear by it when watching the television? The lesser the items, the better and simpler the move. So, here are four ways our experts may recommend getting rid of unwanted stuff before moving.

Home Moving

  • Take a stock of the things to carry

When downsizing the home, you will realize that there may not be much space in the new home available for all the items you have accumulated for years. So, begin with the stocktaking task to know what you own and the items you may dispose of. While checking the inventory, you may also come across a wide range of items that you better not have owned. You may not have used several things you purchased out of fancy. So, why don’t you get rid of them in one shot or organize a yard sale to make some quick bucks? It may help in paying a chunk of the money you need to spend for the move.

  • Make some time for de-cluttering

De-cluttering the home does not happen in a jiffy. You need to sort the items in every room and decide which one of them you need to carry. If you have a few art pieces to carry to the new residence, an art moving company in Raleigh like College Dudes Help U Move and   let us transport the items free from damage. However, there may be a couple of artifacts you rather leave behind. Check the things and make a calculated decision.

  • Get rid of old and large furniture

It will also help you save stress and money. Do you have an antique sofa that you cannot simply leave behind? We are the best moving company for antiques.

    I saw the reviews of this company after I had already booked them. I was really nervous about them coming to my move. These gentlemen showed up on time and provided an excellent service. They took great care and handling all of my items … More that I packed up. They asked me questions when they had them, and genuinely made sure that I was happy with how they were stacking boxes and loading the truck. I would absolutely use this company again. The total time it took to pack up my one bedroom apartment and move 10 minutes across town and unload my items to my house, was around three hours or so. These guys rock!

They were kind, respectable, and personable. I absolutely … More will use them on my next move. Best moving crew. I give 5 plus stars.

    We were a military family of more than 30 years, so we are more than a little familiar with the art of moving and the characteristics of top notch moving companies. Not terribly long ago a local move had us searching for a moving company. … More It didn’t take long for us to settle on College Dudes Help You Move. Their professional presentation and obviously experienced staff made College Dudes stand head and shoulders above any other companies that we might have been considering.. On moving day their staff showed up at the scheduled time with a written plan for the day’s activities that they readily shared with us. They handled our belongings with care and even went so far as to make suggestions about transporting our house plants. In our many, many moves this one stands out as the absolute best. Thank you College Dudes!

    During military career, I moved 11 times in 8 years. And over moved 4 times since. So I know movers. College Dudes is one of the best. It's well run, well organized, and, you're replied to In a timely manner. And I love that they … More employ college students, which helps them make money that could possibly help them offset some of those student loans that weigh them down for YEARS after college. So by using them, not only do I get a quality, insured move, but I have a small part in helping a student achieve eventual financial freedom. Would definitely use them for my next move.

    College Dudes Help U Move was the best moving experience I have ever had. I have moved many times through the US.
    From the initial order to the final box delivered. The men showed early and we’re prepared. They performed a walk through
    … More the house. They made a quick plan and began work.
    The owner, Abraham, stopped by to ensure the move was on track. He was a delight and very professional.
    Later in the day the GM stopped in and had his men move a few items that we were leaving with the house that were too bulky for me to get my hands around and they willingly and quickly went into action.
    Moving is always stressful. It was nice having professionals that not only performed the job with speed and professionalism but the little extra help went a long way.
    Thanks again College Dudes Help U Move.

    I used College Dudes Help U Move to move things from a storage unit and secondary location to a single family residency this past week. Three guys showed up who were kind, thoughtful, and quick. They efficiently moved all my furniture and … More boxes, wrapped things up that could get damaged, and made sure to put things in the correct rooms so unpacking would go smoother. All of my belongings were packed and mostly wrapped prior to their arrival which made the move quick and painless. Could not recommend them more.
