Assessing All of your Items

With moving tip number six helping to give you great tips on donating items for your upcoming move, make sure to assess all of your items that are in your home.  You want to pick up each item and look carefully at it, you will want to determine if it is something that has been used in the last couple of months.  If the items has not been used in a few months, you want to then take the item and make two different piles.  You will want to then determine if it is something that can be donated, or if it is something that should be thrown away.  Slightly used items can be donated while items that are more used, or damaged should be thrown away.  Do not be afraid to throw things away, while you are decluttering your life, you are also saving money on your move by moving less things.

Contacting Donation Centers

You can always contact your local donation centers to see if they will pickup the items that you have set aside for donation.  Goodwill, as well as many other local charities will make an appointment to pick up your items.  If they do not offer pickup, you can either take the items and drop them off in your vehicle, or Brothers Moving & Storage can load the items on the truck and drop them off at the local charity of your choice.  Moving tip number six focuses on the donation of the items, reason being is that these items will help the many people in need, as well as help to get local people back on their feet.  One example is with our Milwaukee movers we have made several donations to the local goodwill from our customers, also let the crew know to get the slip when dropping off and the office will mail this tax deduction slip back to you to help you save more money.
