Put simply: the fewer things you move, the less you pay. When packing your possessions, prioritize your most valuable belongings and the items that will fit in your new home first. For instance, if you don't have a lot of space in the new home for a decorative item, or for all your clothes and shoes, consider donating or selling these pieces. Additionally, if your current appliances won't fit, sell them before you move so they don't take up space on your truck.
Be sure to do any decluttering before the move to allow for a clear entrance and hallways. If you do the work ahead of time, fewer hours will be spent loading and unloading.
