Having a stressless move can be accomplished using some simple tips. Moving means change, and being relaxed and organized is key to a successful and stressless moving experience. Allow yourself plenty of time to plan and prepare for the lead up to moving day, and moving into your new home. Another great tool is to have a moving checklist, which provides a clear list of tasks to be completed. If your move will take place in a short period of time, having a checklist is sure to keep you on track.
Decluttering is a great way to lighten your load and move only what is necessary. It can also lower the cost of your move as many moving companies charge for what is being moved. Start arranging your belongings as early as you can. If you will be getting rid of any items, decide whether they will be kept, discarded, or donated. As you sort through your stuff, you can begin packing things that are not used regularly. This will also speed up the packing process and continue to keep you organized.
If you plan to hire a professional moving company to transport your belongings, it’s important to spend time doing some research and reading reviews. Once you have narrowed your search, start contacting and collecting estimates from at least three reputable moving companies.
A very important thing to remember, if at any time you feel you need help, ask for it!
