Moving can be an exciting time as it is a sign of a fresh start. For many people, moving isn’t just an exciting time, it is also very stressful. When moving an entire household, organizing a move can be a bit overwhelming. However, with the proper planning, any move can be exciting without the stress. will share a few tips on how to make a move less stressful.
Declutter Before a Move
When moving it can be very overwhelming at times. Many people do not know where to begin. One of the best places to start is not by packing but by purging. When you are planning a move, taking everything with you can be a waste of time, effort, and space. There may be a number of items in your home that you never use or do not want any more. Begin purging your home of unwanted items. You can either recycle, donate, sell, or throw them away. You can greatly reduce the amount of moving boxes and the size and number of moving trucks by getting rid of undesirables.
Organized Packing for a Move
Another major step that can help remove stress is being organized. When you begin packing, pack by room and carefully label each box. When labeling boxes write down the room each box goes in and the basic content. For fragile items, make sure to write “fragile” and then write “this side up” or put an arrow on the boxes. When having help loading and unloading a moving truck it is important to label the boxes to prevent damages to fragile items and ensure the boxes make it to the right rooms of the home. Simply labeling the boxes can greatly help remove the stress of a move.
Book a Moving Company in Advance
One of the most stressful elements to a move is the time. Moving with little to no time is the perfect recipe for disaster. When you do not have enough time to stay organized or to find proper help moving, your stress level rises. When you know you will be moving, begin early. Hire a moving service and schedule weeks in advanced. Begin packing items that are not needed on a daily basis. Have everything packed a day before the scheduled moving date, so the next day can be dedicated to loading your moving trucks. You don’t want to still be packing on moving day as that can lead to a ton of stress. When planning a move, always give yourself plenty of time and more. Never be trying to pack and move near your dead line. If possible, stay ahead of moving target.
