    Moving is one of those processes that are difficult, time-consuming, and, ultimately, inevitable. If you happen to be moving to, from, or in Los Angeles in the weeks to come, you are most likely worried about the duration of the process. Our job is to tell you that you shouldn’t worry about a thing, as we are here to distribute some tips that will help you speed up your LA move. At Sky Moving, we believe that every local relocation in Los Angeles has the potential to be a quick and stress-free endeavor. And we find it our mission to ensure your upcoming relocation is a complete success. 

    Start relocation preparation on time

    It’s very simple, really. Getting a head start is the most important thing when going through relocation. If you start preparing for the event a week before, you are most likely going to be stressed out and in rush the whole time. With so many things that need to be done at once, you’ll find it very hard to focus on completing the tasks successfully. Not only will that lead to a lot of tension, but it might also lead to an unsuccessful move – that’s something nobody wants to experience.

    At Sky Moving, we always suggest you start preparing six to eight weeks before the scheduled moving date. That always leaves enough room for the most important moving tasks, such as packing and shopping for packing supplies. Anything less than a month will probably not give you enough time to prepare for what’s to come.

    A good plan always helps to speed up your LA move

    Make no mistake – whether you are interested in a quick or leisurely-paced move doesn’t matter, as a good moving plan is a must in all situations and circumstances. This plan will give you general guidelines of all the tasks that need to be handled, and it will give you a timeframe for their completion. That’s why the most successful residential moves in LA begin with a plan.

    Whether you create a plan by yourself or with the help of your moving team isn’t of importance. As long as it’s correctly composed and gives you an overview of all of your tasks, you are good to go. And how exactly will a plan help you speed up your move to, from, or in Los Angeles? It’s simple – you’ll always know your next move. You will save precious time that you would otherwise spend on the process of figuring out what to do next.

    Use everything you have at your disposal

    In this life, everything is that much easier when you are creative. Moving is definitely going to be simpler, quicker, and more affordable if you learn how to think outside of your box. Just take a look around yourself. Do you see any items that could be used for relocation purposes? We are pretty sure you are noticing suitcases, empty shoe boxes, or even garbage bags. All of those items could be utilized during one very important part of the process – packing.

    Unless you have decided to pay for packing services in Los Angeles, you are going to need to prepare all of your items for transport. You’ll have to put your belongings in suitable containers, seal them with tape, and load them onto the truck. But before all of that, you’ll have to go out and search for all the necessary packing supplies. Why would you waste hours of your precious time when you most likely have everything you need in your own home? All of the items we mentioned a few minutes ago will be great to use for packing purposes. Not only will they save your time, but they will also save your hard-earned money. That’s a win-win situation no matter how you look at it.

    Use labels in order to speed up your LA moving process

    Packing all of your items into boxes is only the first step. Most people forget about one very important part of the process – labeling the boxes. Truth be told, marking the contents of a box won’t do much for you during the moving day. However, it will do wonders for you and your schedule after your moving team delivers everything to the new address. With clearly marked moving boxes, it will be easy to unpack in the shortest amount of time.

    Bear in mind that you can always use the color-coding system where every box will be marked with the color of the room it belongs to. For example, you can use the color red as a symbol of your bedroom. All the boxes that have a red sticker will, therefore, be unpacked in the bedroom. When it comes to speeding up your LA move, you have to focus on every part of the process. This system will certainly do wonders for the other half of the job.

    Speed up your LA move by focusing on the essentials

    The fewer items you pack, the less time will it take you to relocate them. That’s just the way it usually goes. That’s why one of the best things you can do for your move is to pack light. There are many different ways to declutter your home and, unfortunately, all of them require you to leave sentimentality behind. If that will result in a quick move that you have been wanting, then it certainly pays off.

    ''These guys did a great job with my heavy stuff! I only needed a few heavy things moved (like a refrigerator, sofa, big display case, etc). They showed up on time, were helpful and friendly, and were done on-time. And they moved all my heavy stuff down a flight of stairs in the LA heat! Definitely recommend them, and will use them again in the future!''
