Let’s be honest. Moving is a stressful process despite the excitement you may feel about relocating. When you think of moving, typically you only picture the day of the actual move, however, the entire process can take months. First, you have to find a new home and sell your current residence, then, of course, you have to pack up all your belongings. Not to mention, the process may involve selling some of your belongings that won’t fit into your new home.

While packing may not be the most stressful part of moving, it is the most tedious and time-consuming. In addition to going through all of your belongings and deciding whether or not they will make the move, you also have to take the time to wrap up your fragile items and strategically arrange them into a box so that they don’t break during the move. Some people prefer to pack their belongings themselves to ensure that everything is handled with care and labeled correctly. However, if you’re more interested in getting the job done in a timely manner, you may consider hiring a professional team of movers to do your packing for you.
That being said, if you do decide to hire professionals to pack up your items, it’s a good idea to supervise the process. Even though you’re not completing the packing process on your own, you still want to ensure that everything is packed with care according to your specifications. Additionally, you may also consider providing the movers with food or drinks to show your gratitude for their help.
Inspect Your Home Before You Leave
Once all of your belongings are packed, you will want to walk through your home to see if you left anything behind. Phone chargers, small clothing items, and dishes are commonly forgotten items that you may not want to forget. You will also want to make sure that you have all of the big appliances that you plan on taking to your new address. Many homeowners leave behind refrigerators, stoves, water heaters, or other large appliances, but it depends on what you decided to leave during the selling process.
Remember the Necessities
On moving day, your home will be full of boxes. Unless you plan on unpacking all of your boxes on the first day, you will want to make sure that at least one box contains all the necessities that you will need that very first night. For example, items such as toilet paper, hand soap, coffee and your coffee pot, snacks, and tools, are important to have on hand. In order to ensure that these items will be readily available when you need them, it may be a good idea to pack them last, label them properly, and either keep them with you or have the movers make them the last things they load into the truck.
By following these tips, you’re sure to make your relocation process not only easier, but also more enjoyable.
