We understand that certain situations arise where immediately packing up and moving may be the only solution. Not all of the reasons for a last minute move are negative though, sometimes a major breakthrough in your career can force you into a last minute move in Connecticut.

Father & Son Moving and Storage have everything you need to plan a successful last minute moving trip in Connecticut.

Here is a Breakdown of How to Complete Your Entire Move in One Weekend:


The first thing you need to do is contact a local moving company to reserve a time slot for Sunday when you are prepared for transporting your belongings. Since you cannot move without packing, the second thing you will need to do is get all your packing supplies ready. This includes different size boxes, plenty of duct tape, packing blankets, packing peanuts and any other things you may need for the weekend. Friday is also the day to take care of all your current bills and then setup your utilities for the new location. If you have the chance, invite your friends, neighbors, or family members over to help you with the packing process. The next thing to do is to sort out exactly what clothes, toiletries, and supplies you might need to get through the weekend.


This is the most important and yet tiresome day because today is the day that you will need to do all of the organization and the actual packing. To make identification of your boxes easier, label all of your boxes from #1-5 in the order of importance. For example, your holiday decorations are not a priority to be unpacked so you should label them with the #5. You can take this process one step further and label each box according to where the contents belong to. For instance, the box containing your pots, pans, and silverware should be labeled: The Kitchen (1). Remember, the bigger the number (1-5), the less important the contents in the box will be when you first move in and have to unpack everything.


Since you have already packed and labeled your belongings, the first thing to do Sunday morning is to transport your belongings to your destination with the moving company. It's a good idea to allow the movers to do the bulk lifting of your boxes but its your responsibility to keep the pathways and doorways clear. The majority of the time you are also responsible for unpacking and arranging everything in the new space. Hiring a moving company in Connecticut will help you complete the entire moving process in one weekend so you can relax Sunday night, especially if you need to report to work the following day. There are quite a few moving companies in Connecticut but you should choose one that has a great reputation and also can offer storage services in case you need them.

Key Takeaways:

  • Don't waste any time contacting a moving company as soon as you finalize your plans.

  • Try calling your neighbors, friends, relatives or close acquaintances for help with the packing and labeling.

  • Don't move anything you don't want, try donating unnecessary items to Goodwill or your local thrift store.
