Whether you’re packing up the house you just sold or are moving out of a rental property, there are many parts of a move that can be stressful. From packing up all your belongings, to sending them to your new place, to the actual travel, to setting up once you’ve finally arrived, it can be taxing to try to juggle the move with everything else going on in your life.
Here are a few moving tips that can make moving out a bit easier:
- Organize your move ahead of time. Although you can’t prepare for absolutely everything that may happen, making a plan can alleviate a lot of stress. Don’t leave every decision to the last minute!
- Start packing early. Get ahead of your to-do list by packing non-essential items in the weeks before your final push.
- Donate unwanted items. When you are packing, you may come across things that you forgot you had or that you’ve realized you don’t need anymore. There’s no need to move things you don’t want! Donate these items before you move to save you some time and money, and, most importantly, to make a difference in someone else’s life.
- Hire professional movers. Especially if you’re moving from a large home, trusting a professional team can make the entire experience go smoother. Pro tip: moving companies like Affordable Quality Moving and Storage also typically offer packing and storage services!
- Share your new address with close contacts before the move. Don’t let your friends and family get lost in the shuffle! Before you focus on the task at hand, make sure your loved ones know where you’re going. You might even arrive at your new home to some flowers or fun snail mail!
