Moving locally or across the nation can be equally chaotic. From finding boxes, packing, finding movers, whether it’s with friends or professionals, to preparing for the big day can be a hair-pulling event. Nevertheless, with proper planning and a sprinkle of organization, your moving day can become a stressless event.
Here are a few tips to craft your stress-free big move.
Identify how much time you have before the big day and create a master to-do list.
Crafting your plan of attack toward your beast of a move is the best strategy and key to your stress-free transportation. Determine how long you have before the actual move day and leverage that time block to divide and conquer your master to-do list. Write down all of your local and moving destination contacts information, especially if you're moving across the state. Plan a list of packaging supply vendors or local store locations that will be used to get your supplies. You can even plan for the date you intend to visit all these locations. Identify the financial budget you will need to alleviate surprises and promote a smooth transition. Be sure to always have cash available for the moving day for tips, tolls, etc. Lastly, make accountability for where your family members will be on moving day to make sure there are no surprise appointments or kids sports practices you may have forgotten.
Get your packing supplies and begin packing as soon as possible.
Get a glimpse of how many boxes you will need according to your current house or bedroom count. If you want to save money towards your budget, visit a storage website and look at how many boxes they say you will need according to bedroom count. When you visit the local stores listed in your master to-do list, you’ll know how many free boxes you will need to collect. Don’t get supplies like tape, scissors, and bubble wrap from storage vendors, but rather go to a local superstore instead. Save the bulk of your budget for the professional moving labor cost instead!
Invest in professional nationwide movers to speed up and handle your move.
The best part of moving day is when you’re not moving objects at all! By hiring professional movers to handle the moving labor, you get to rest and regulate on moving day! Many people are on the fence when it comes to hiring professional moving labor and moving help because of the cost and pre-allocated budget. However, hiring moving help is the best plan of attack to ensure time, planning, and less broken objects found at your destination. Professional movers know how to tie, package, carry and lift all of your furniture to ensure a fast, secure, and safe transport. Also, many of these professional moving companies have cost-efficient packages for your budget. You can call at least 1-2 weeks ahead of your moving day to ensure the best price.
