Moving Tips for Millennials: Preparing for Your First Big Move

It’s a fact: millennials are on the move. As more of the millennial generation starts to hit their twenties and thirties, more of them are leaving their current homes. Whether the pressures are coming from work, a growing family, or just for a change of pace, millennials are moving. For some of these individuals, this might be their first move. So, Sinclair Moving and Storage has some tips for these first-time movers.

The Location

The first step to moving for millennials is to research the areas they are moving, especially if you’re moving to a new city or town that you’re not familiar with. You’ll want to take a look at some serious stuff like the amount of crime in the area, the distance to public transport or public parking. But you’ll also want to look at what’s around to support your hobbies or interests. For example, you may want to see if there’s a library nearby or a basketball court. By researching this in advance, you can feel secure in your decision to move.

Your Expenses

You’ll also want to figure out what amenities and services you can afford. Living on your own can be very expensive. You’ll need to look at your income and your expenses. For millennials, streaming services, internet, and smart phones may feel like necessities, but are you willing to sacrifice water or heat for these things? Make sure you’re setting yourself up for success by budgeting well and being aware of how much a move can cost.

Smart Packing

Another important step is organizing your packing. As you pack your items, create an inventory and document what items are in which boxes. You’ll also want to pack systematically, saving any necessary items for last. This gives you easy access to them before and after the move. And keep in mind that a move gives you a great opportunity to donate or sell you old stuff.

The Right Moving Team

Most importantly, you’ll want to make sure that you have the right moving company to help you with the move. You’ll want professionals who can help you with this complicated process. At Sinclair, we can help you on moving day and even help you store your items while you’re getting adjusted.
