Moving can be one of the most stressful events people face. Between apartment hunting and packing, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. But fear not—with some careful planning, moving stress can be significantly reduced!
Give Yourself Enough Time
Your moving date is a hard deadline, so it’s important to be packed and ready to go by that day. But even with the best intentions, procrastination can creep up from the shadows and you’re left packing your entire four bedroom house 24 hours before the big move. Start packing and getting organized early, even if you think it’s too early—it’s never too early! Also, don’t wait for the last minute to hire a moving company, otherwise your schedule can be thrown off.
Pack Room by Room
Whether you live in a cozy studio apartment or a sprawling mansion, the idea of packing can be intimidating. Break this chore down room by room, or even closet by closet, to make the undertaking more manageable both physically and mentally.
Skip Packing All Together
Some people really hate packing to the point where they would rather get a root canal during a blizzard. If you’re one of those people, skip the task all together. Hire a moving service that also offers assistance with packing. Packing experts can ensure your valuables are packed with care for safe travels.
Hire Trusted Professionals
Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, make sure your movers are properly licensed for the job and have solid, respectable reviews. Ask lots of questions to make sure they are fully equipped to accommodate your needs and help make your move seamless. For example: Can my belonging be stored? Can you move my baby grand piano? What time will movers arrive at my home?
See? With a little planning and time management, moving can be a breeze!
