Moving is a stressful time. You are always surprised by how much stuff you have—and then handle the transport to and unloading in your new Grand Lake Home. You take care to protect your precious possessions from all the threats of being shifted, lifted, and jostled. How do you protect them during the last leg of the journey? Here are some moving tips to help you move in without destroying your new home.

Plan, plan, plan. Minimize the moving time and effort (particularly if you are paying professional movers by the hour) by creating a moving plan and floor layout.

Protect the floors. While your floors are certainly designed to withstand traffic, there’s no need to put them to the test during your move. From scrapes on your hardwood to stains on the carpet to cracks in the tile, your flooring is at risk of damage when you’re hauling in a houseful of possessions.

Protect walls and railings. Do a walk-through of your new home before moving day. Look for places that might be at risk of scrapes, scratches, dents, and dings.

Move from back to front. Reduce the traffic in and out of your new home during the move by first unloading the items in the farthest reaches, like the upper floors before the main level, or the back of the house before the area close to the entrance. By following this pattern, your move will not only go faster, but you will have less back-and-forth foot traffic in the rooms and spaces farthest from the entrance.

Your new home is a significant investment. Follow these moving tips to protect its value right from the start.
