1. Plan Ahead for an Easy Move 

Moving is always a hectic process. You want to get as much packed up as you can before you’re actually ready to move, but you can’t pack things away you may be using. Deciding when to pack and what to pack is a part of the process that requires special planning, particularly if you have a lifestyle that requires you have daily access to items you may need to live that lifestyle.

2. Athletes Require Access to Certain Items

Take, for instance, an athlete. There are certain items an athlete needs access to every day, such as exercise equipment and clothing related to whatever sport, or sports, the athlete participates in. This affects not only when these items are packed away, but how and where the items are packed.

The athlete’s moving packing list should be arranged in such a way that necessary items for the athlete are packed away last and in boxes that will be easily accessible as soon as the move is complete. This will help the athlete keep track of important items and will offer the most amount of access to essential athletic equipment throughout the moving process.

3. If You're an Athlete, Keep a Separate List

It’s a good idea if the athlete’s moving packing list is written separately from the moving packing lists for the rest of the items. If possible, oversee the packing of your house when the time comes so you can be in charge of where athletic equipment is stored.

If you’re using a moving company, let them carry on equipment that you can’t move, but keep clothing and essential smaller equipment with you when possible.

Even under the best of circumstances, some of the things you need can get lost in the move, or at least misplaced or buried under other things.

4. Pay Attention to the Details of Moving

This is why it can be helpful to oversee the loading and unloading process yourself, especially when you are using a moving company. You have to bear in mind that movers are experienced at packing their moving trucks for maximum storage, so the movers aren’t necessarily going to be aware of what you need and don’t need right away. Don’t be afraid to let them know about the items you’ll need quick access to when you reach your destination. You should also be wary of where your most important or fragile belongings are. 

The athlete’s moving packing list is no different than any other packing list really. It should be structured with the items being packed and numbers that correspond with boxes where the items can be located quickly. A numbered system that matches boxes with numbered items on a list will always make the moving experience easier and more efficient regardless of what you’re packing.

5. With Professionals, You Have the Time to Properly Pack You Belongings

When you hire a moving company, always get a plan of action from them. Find out when they plan to arrive at the destination you’re moving from and the destination you’re moving to. This can help you arrange your schedule and give you a time frame for when you need to pack your athletic items. When the time finally comes to move, the athlete’s moving packing list you’ve already set up will help you store and transport your most essential things in such a way that you will lose as little access as possible.

You did it. You paid the deposit, you signed the lease. The dust bunnies of yesterday are ready to relocate to the brand new hardwood floors and countless amenities of tomorrow. There’s a moment of relief, of exhalation, before the dreadful realization sinks in that now, all there is left to do is pack. Can’t be that hard, right? But why do you still have all those old binders from junior year at SC, and why did you insist on buying all the Barnes and Noble Classics on hardcover instead of just buying a Kindle? Pots and pans, easy enough, throw ‘em in a cardboard box. But what about Great Grandma Ruby’s crystal tea set? And the antique mirror that the packers chipped in the last move? You’re going to need help, but some things are just better packed yourself. Professional movers know their way around the job, but let’s face it, we can be anal about our prized possessions. Do yourself a favor, spare the material heartbreak and go buy a few of your own boxes and a roll of bubble wrap. Things like Mom’s Old Jewelry Box, the Framed Autographed Poster of Michael Jordan, all those treasures should probably be packed by you. If its valuable, fragile, or something you just want to keep your eye on during the chaos of a move, pack it on your own time and leave it for the movers to relocate. A little extra work for a lot of peace of mind is a small price to pay.
