Moving out of Mom and Dad’s house when you went off to college might have been an emotional move towards independence, but it likely wasn’t a “move” by typical standards. Whether you are moving to an apartment or your first house, the first time move is a daunting task. Your Aurora movers, Bradford Moving, want to be sure that you are ready to get your move done quickly and safely. Here are some things you should think about when planning your first move.


Who is going to be doing the packing for your move? Bradford Moving offers packing services that will have us doing all the heavy lifting for you. You just need to get things organized and let us know when and where to show up. If you are thinking of packing on your own, you will need to make sure of a couple things.

First, plan ahead so you have enough time to get all the packing done. Start with packing up everything that you know you aren’t going to need and go from there. Second, make sure to buy enough boxes and packing material to get everything packed up and ready to go. Finally, if there are things you know you no longer use or need, don’t take them with you. Moving is a great time to purge yourself of stuff that you just no longer need.

Schedule the Move

You should have the date set for your first time move long before it takes place. As soon as you have that information, it is time to get the ball rolling to schedule everything that you are going to need. If you are planning on going with Bradford Moving as a moving company, the more notice that we have, the easier it will be to get your move planned out.

If you are planning on doing the move yourself, you will need to schedule when you are going to have your assistants come over, when you are going to be doing the packing, when you are going to be renting the truck and a host of other things to get the move done properly. It is never too early to start scheduling a move.


Loading and unloading can be tricky, particularly if you don’t get the lay of the land first. You should have a pretty good idea of where the loading and unloading is going to happen at your current home. If you do live in an apartment, you might need to schedule a permit for the loading zone or special access to the freight elevator.

Your new home can be challenging as well. Make sure to find a place where you can park moving trucks. This can be tricky if you are moving to a place that is on a hill or has a steep incline. Bradford Moving are moving experts who can help you with any move. Contact us today to schedule an estimate for your first time move in Aurora.
