You have signed that giant stack of paperwork, the deed and the title is in your name. Now it's time to start making this place your own. Moving into your new home can be exciting, but it’s also stressful. For this reason, Schutt Law Firm here in Fort Myers, Florida, would like to share some useful advice to make your move easier.

Plan Your Move

It is very important that you plan out how you are going to move in advance. This also gives you a great opportunity to get rid of your extra clutter. Go through each room and decide which items you really don't need anymore. Make a keep stack and a cut stack.

The Cut Stack

Sell or donate the items in you have in your cut stack. This can include large items such as furniture and appliances. Having a garage sale will not only help off-load your unneeded things, but you can make a bit of money as well.


Boxes, tape, bubble wrap and a marker are essential for getting everything you need packed and ready to go. Pack your fragile items with bubble wrap or towels. You can use newspaper, but it can transfer ink onto your things if the humidity is too high. Don’t forget to mark each box with what's in it and the room where it belongs.

Getting it From Here to There

How you move your stuff depends on a few things; how much stuff do you have? How far will you be moving? Can you get friends and family to help? Do you have a friend that owns a truck? Consider all these things and find out whether it is more convenient and cost wise to hire a moving company or rent a truck and do it yourself.
