So, we thought we could offer you some of the basic and more popular pieces of advice to make your entire moving adventure, much more relaxing instead of a stressful experience.

Moving can cause us stress. That’s no secret. If you have ever moved to a new home, you know this. If you have not moved before, news flash. There are going to be a few challenging moments during your moving process. Everyone on our team wants to minimize those stressful points so we offer you some quick advice.

Plan your move early

There are not too many things that will cause you to get stressed out about a move than to delay starting the process. When you know you are going to be selling your home, moving for a new job or other reasons, contact a moving company as soon as possible. First, because you’ll want to get acquainted with the process of moving as soon as you can, and two, you want to make sure you can get an accurate estimate from a moving company. The more time you give your moving professional, the better. If you leave calling a moving company until the last minute, you could be out of luck on moving day.

Start packing

Packing is another one of those tasks that does not evoke a relaxing feeling to most. But, if you’re going to move, you have to pack. Start packing today, right now and do not delay. If you do, moving day will be a mix of boxes with all types of belongings in them, trash bags with more stuff you left out and chaos when you get to your new home. Our advice? Hire a professional moving company to help you pack. You’ll be amazed at what a packing service can do for your wellbeing. You’ll have everything where you need it, an inventory and peace of mind.

Shed some items

We’re pretty confident that you have more items in your current home than you think you do. Everyone does. We’re a moving company and we know this kind of thing… Getting rid of unwanted items accomplishes a few things on your moving to-do list. First, you will have less to move which means less to pack, less to bring to your new home and it will take money off the cost of your move. And you may just find items that you can either put into a yard sale or donate to charity. So, you can make others happy with your items. Don’t forget to check with family first as they may have use for your items you don’t need.
