With all the excitement of moving to a new home, it’s easy to overlook the amount of planning and physical labour it requires. Before you know it, moving day will arrive, and the stress of boxing up every single one of your possessions in a way that is safe and secure will creep up on you.
There are several ways you can relieve moving-day stress:
Dedicate a room in your current home to organizing all your items. Separate them by category (i.e. cooking, clothes, bathroom accessories), place them in different boxes, and then label each box according to the room they belong in. This way, once you arrive at your new home, you will have an easy time unpacking, and because of how clearly everything is marked, others will be able to help, as well.
TIP: Be sure to mark “breakable” in big bold letters on the boxes containing delicate items.
Accept help from others.
It’s natural to want to control where your possessions go and how they are handled, but it’s a lot of extra strain for one person to do all by themselves. Your family and close friends will want to help in any way they can—so graciously accept! Whether you realize it or not, you need all the help you can get.
Hire Professionals Movers
In the long run, it’s always best to leave it to the professionals. If you want to feel at ease and ensure everything is done properly, hiring professional movers with experience will keep things running smoothly.
Call up your movers a day or two beforehand to ensure you’re on the same page about the date and time they should arrive. Making an official confirmation will help relieve you of any worries about time constraints or the all-too-popular fear of “the movers will forget and not show up.”
