Reduce clutter before your business relocation with this guide from Advantage Moving Company

So you finally got that fancy business promotion you have been vying for, congratulations! One part of getting a new job or gaining a promotion is the possibility of business relocation. Moving for a business can be a stressful task as you often do not have much choice in where to live and you may have to move under a tight deadline. As such, you may not be able to take everything with you that you want. In order to make your business relocation go smoothly, follow these tips to reduce your clutter and downsize.

Make a list

First things first, go through your possessions and make a physical list of essentials and things to get rid of. It may be hard to let go of old items with sentimental value but you need to ask which things it will be the most practical to move. Kitchen essentials, for example, would make the “keep” list while that stack of old Sports Illustrated magazines might go on the “get rid of” list.

Use a marketplace app

One of the best things about the internet is that there is no shortage of people who want to buy and sell things. In the past few years, several apps meant for selling possessions have popped up like Facebook Marketplace, LetGo, Carousel, and of course the ever popular eBay. These apps have essentially rendered garage sales obsolete as potential buyers can connect directly with sellers to buy specific listed items. Consider posting some listings with a marketplace app to see what kind of bids you receive. Odds are you will be able to sell things at a higher price than you would at a traditional garage sale or pawn shop. Might as well make some money on your move, right?

Donate unwanted clothes

If you need to downsize your wardrobe, consider donating any unwanted clothing items to a local charity. Places like Goodwill and Salvation Army accept donations of clothes and other unwanted items that may be difficult to sell in a normal environment.
