When you move to a new home, the ideal situation would involve plenty of time to plan for your relocation. You would research moving companies, create that moving checklist, take your time and pack properly and do everything you can to ease the stress of moving. You might even pay your new town a visit as we often suggest.
However, we do understand that sometimes people need to move either on short notice or because of an emergency situation. That could be a new job or a short-term relocation or as we’ve seen in the past two years, family members moving closer to home for various reasons.
Can you actually move on short notice and quickly? Sure, but you’ll want to take a look at our quick tips below.
Take a step back and breathe
That’s right, you need to hit the pause button and practice breathing to calm yourself down and assess your situation. You’ll never be able to plan a quick move if you are in panic mode. And you’ll only stress everyone out around you. So our advice is to slow down, have a seat and analyze everything that is going on before moving forward. Create a moving checklist so you don’t forget anything.
Moving companies are your best way to move quickly
If you need to pack up and move fast, one of the worst things you can do is rely on family and friends. They can support you in other ways but if you need to get your move done, you need to contact a reputable moving company now. Great moving companies understand that people may be under stress, especially when you need to move on short notice. They will have highly trained crews that can get you to your new destination quickly and efficiently. Don’t go it alone!
Proceed with caution
Yes, you need to move quickly but don’t make decisions that you will regret. One of those is contracting for services off the Internet. One clear example is hiring a moving company. There are still websites out there that claim to be moving companies but are just there to resell your moving job. Our best advice is to research local moving companies or ask friends and family for a referral. The same goes for other services you may require in the short term. You don’t have time to make a mistake so find reliable services quickly within your community.
Storing your items on a last-minute move
Another way you can reduce the stress associated with a fast move is to place some of your items into a storage facility. The best way to do this in a seamless approach is to use moving companies that also have a storage warehouse. They can move you to your new destination and then take the items back to storage that you don’t require in the short term. Placing certain items in storage will also mean that you don’t have to deal with them until you are ready. Take what you need and place the rest of your items in storage. It can be a game-changer in reducing your stress and getting to your new destination quickly.
