Top Four Tips from Movers for Movers

May 01, 2019

The month of May is Movers Month. In celebration of it, we surveyed 1,000 US adults who have moved within the last year. Here are the top four tips from their wisdom:

  1. Always change your door locksBelieve it or not, nearly 37% of new movers haven’t changed their locks and 24% don’t have plans to.
  2. Patch and paint your own walls. Nearly 3 in 5 recent movers have done this themselves, and with the new ProjectColor app takes the guess work out of selecting a color by letting you test it virtually.
  3. Don’t be afraid to find decorating inspirationApproximately 82% of new movers decorate based on feedback from friends and things they see on social media. 
  1. Don’t like it? Change it. The first rooms tackled in a renovation project are the kitchen (32%), bathroom (20%) and the living room (19%).

During the month of May, you can visit your local Home Depot store to attend mover-inspired workshops including how to install a tile backsplash and how to repair and paint drywall. For extra know-how or inspiration, visit Home Depot's New Home Essentials or view our How-to Videos.
