When do I need to start packing for my move?


Answered by Katherine Broome

You should start packing for about three weeks before you move. This ensures you don't pack anything too early, and it also ensures that you’re starting early enough to get it done in time.

While you should start three weeks before the move, you can start decluttering and clearing things out of your home much earlier than that. If your home is packed with items, then you should start packing earlier than three weeks since it will take some time to declutter and throw things out, and it will also take more time to start packing things away as well.
