At Federal Companies, we’ve been moving companies and households since 1913 – and we’ll be the first to tell you that relocating isn’t sexy. Maybe it’s exciting, sure, but when it comes down to the nitty-gritty, moving is a stressful, laborious process that people dread starting and love ending. It’s the exact opposite of sexy – unless, of course, you do it right.

Here are 6 dirty tips that will make moving a shorter, more enjoyable and generally sexier process:

1. Pack an overnight bag.

Pack and overnight bag and fill it with the essentials – you know, the stuff you’re going to be too tired to dig around for at the end of the day (e.g., your toothbrush, mouthwash, body wash, a brush). Because nothing is less sexy than bad breath.

2. Save bubble wrap; use clothes.

Plates, glasses, light bulbs, ceramics: all very fragile and, therefore, extremely vulnerable during a move. Save your money and save the environment by wrapping these and other delicate items in clothing. Kill two birds with one stone. Feel cool. Sexy.

3. Pre-clean... especially the bathroom.

You’ll want to feel clean after a long, arduous day of moving. Putting up a fresh shower curtain and some new towels – just making your bathroom feel like your own – will help you relax.

4. Saran wrap.

Do this: take the caps off your cosmetic or, for that matter, any bottles and place a piece of saran wrap on the lid. Then put the cap back on.

Your welcome in advance.

5. Photograph electronics setups.

If you have to operate 3 remotes and navigate through 6 screens just to turn on your TV, you might want to take a picture of your setup. This way you can reference back to it for a faster, less stressful transition.

6. Professionals pay for themselves.

If you have a lot of fragile items (e.g., a piano, computers, televisions, appliances, heavy tables and furniture), it’s probably in your best interest to hire the pros. Ultimately, they’ll end up saving you money in unbroken belongings!
