Moving can be stressful, as anyone who has undergone the process knows. From searching for quality moving companies to finding storage facilities for extra household items, there is literally an endless number of things you will need to organize. Movers can help with the heavy lifting, but for the rest of the job, check out our tips on moving below.
Limit your possessions – Treat your move as a great opportunity to de-clutter your life. As you pack each item, take a moment to evaluate whether you really need it or not. You might also want to consider self storage if you have possessions you must keep, but that don’t need to be stored in your new home.
Make sure your new home is ready – It would be horrible to drive across the country, having the movers arrive at the door of your new house, only to find out it isn’t ready for you yet. There are a lot of things that may delay your move, from carpet cleaning to broken water pipes. Double- and triple-check that your home will be ready for you to move in to on or before the date of the movers’ expected arrival.
Pack important items and things needed daily in a separate box – Make sure that all your legal documents are packed separately from your random household items. While the movers can handle the rest of your boxes, you should place these items along with a few days of clothing, toothbrush, etc in a box that you transport. This way if there is an unexpected delay, you won’t be without the essentials.
