Everyone knows, moving is just not fun.
Of course it’s exciting to get into your new home as quickly as possible, but the actual process of packing and moving can be one of the most stressful and costly parts you’ll experience. Making sure you are prepared to handle pitfalls and insuring the move as smooth as possible is simple once you avoid some common pitfalls.
Schedule you move in advance. Most reputable moving companies book up fast. The best thing for you to do is call and schedule your appointment as far in advance as possible. Take your time, do your research and check the online reviews. Make sure the company has a great track record for customer service. Scrambling last minute to find a company is the last headache you need!
Don’t overpack. Take the time to go room to room and weed out items you just won’t use or ever need in your new home. Moving from Colorado to Florida? It might be time to donate the winter clothes! If you haven’t used an item in the last 6 months, really take a moment to decide if you actually need it in your life. Remember less stuff means less moving costs and less of a weight on your back!
If you get down to the wire and find you need help from friends or family, pizza goes a long way. Invite them over for a packing party, provide food and drinks and play some music to keep them motivated and on schedule.
