5 Things That Will Make Moving Easier
1. Have a clear out in advance
The less stuff you have, the less you’ll have to move. A clear out in advance of your move can help you get rid of any unwanted clutter, give you a neater space and make it easier to pack. You don’t want to move into a new home with a load of stuff you don’t want or need, so make sure you do something with your unwanted goods long before moving day.
2. Book some movers
If you’ve never used movers before to help you move home, you have no idea what you’re missing. Hiring a moving company can ease a lot of the stress of your move by packing and transporting all of your things to your new home. Movers are more affordable than you know, and metcalfmoving.com have some excellent services to help you move. Booking movers is a cost worth paying to save you the hassle of doing it all yourself.
3. Keep a bag with all of your essentials
When you move, it can be easy to lose track of where everything is. Even when you arrive at your destination, you might find that you’re too tired to search through all those boxes to find a toothbrush or toilet paper. Be sensible and keep a bag or two of essentials to hand, featuring the items you need to survive your first night. Some sleepwear, hygiene products and things to keep the kids occupied can make it easier for you to make it through the first night in your new home.
4. Work backward from your moving day
Not being prepared will only add to your stress, so the best thing you can do to take the pressure off moving is to work backward from your moving date and to make a list of all the things you need to do. This will help you to get organized and means that you can tackle tasks one at a time to save everything being last-minute.
5. Get all the help you can
Many hands make light work of moving, so it pays to get all the help you can. Rope in friends, family and anyone else who’s around to help with the packing and lifting. The more people you have helping, the easier it will be to get everything done. You can repay everyone with some pizza and beverages in your new home!
Moving doesn’t have to cause a headache. Figure out what you’re doing and make plans in advance to make this your least stressful move to date!
