Moving can be fun and exciting with the prospect of moving into a new home in a new neighborhood. It can equally be stressful with all of the planning, packing, and preparations needed to get to your actual moving day. Fortunately, there are several different things you can do to reduce any moving-related stress so you can happily look forward to moving.
Tip #1: Hire a professional mover that offers full-service options.
Whether you just want a moving company to take care of transporting your belongings from one home to the next or need customizable options, finding the right mover is vital to a stress-free move.
You should be able to rely on your mover for packing materials, boxes, and other essential items you will need to pack. If you hate packing, you will want a mover who offers professional packing services. Take advantage of these services and more to avoid the backbreaking labour needed to complete a move and sit back and relax.
Tip #2: Start preparing for your move as soon as you know you will be moving.
The biggest mistake people make when moving is to put off doing anything until the last possible moment. Taking this approach is never a good idea because it leaves you scrambling to pack, find a mover, and more.
Even if you do not have a solid move date, you can start decluttering and packing anything you will not need for the time being. If necessary, you can work with your mover to transport excess belongings to storage so you can stage your home.
Tip #3: Create a “moving-free zone” in the home.
You need to keep one area of the home free from moving boxes, packing materials, etc. Pick one room you can escape to when you want to just sit and relax like the living room or your bedroom. This room will be the one you pack at the very end. Keep this area free of moving boxes and as normal as possible.
Tip #4: Don’t forget to schedule “me-time” or “family time.”
Another mistake people make is to let the move become their primary focus. By planning well in advance of your actual move, there is no reason you cannot still schedule a time for you or the family to do things everyone enjoys.
Tip #5: Accept help with packing and preparing for the move.
If you have friends or family who offer to help you pack, watch your children, walk the dog, or take care of grocery shopping so you can pack, take them up on their offer. This additional help will free you up with fewer things to have to do. Plus, you might be able to your packing finished sooner.
