You don’t have to let the thoughts of your moving day stress you out. With a little planning and preparation, you can have everything organized and sorted for a simple, hassle-free move that goes smoothly. To guide you in preparing for the move, here are some tips to consider when you want to avoid moving-related stress.
The best way to avoid moving-related stress is by starting early. It’s the most important step for ensuring everything gets done on time without feeling like you have a mound of tasks to do. Starting now will let you slowly chip away at your to-do list one step at a time so you don’t feel overwhelmed. So start today by going over your to-do list and committing to knocking off one or a few tasks every day.
Book Your Movers as Soon as Possible
One of the first tasks to cross off your to-do list should be booking (in) your preferred moving company. You can start by doing a little research online and asking around for recommendations from friends and family. Once you’ve found a reputable moving company with good references, give them a call to discuss your moving needs, obtain a detailed quote, and lock in your date once you’re satisfied with the estimate and details. Doing this now will eliminate any risk of not being able to book the date that you need to move once the season gets busier.
Ask for Help
Packing up and moving all of your belongings isn’t a simple task. Even if you’re moving from a small apartment, there’s still a surprising amount of work involved. That’s why we always recommend asking for help. Whether it’s a family member or a few good friends, offer some pizza and beverages in exchange for an afternoon of help. It’ll make the process much quicker and easier when you have an extra set of hands to assist you.
