Home Moving

By: Jasonstorm
There are a lot of things to do related to a home moving and a lot of people get overwhelmed by the workload. Surely, the things has to be done, but there are ways to make the moving project less stressful and seemingly lighter.

If you decide to let a moving company do the whole move for you, all the way from packing to unpacking, you obviously save yourself from most of the hassle. For those on a budget, this is usually not possible and there will be more work to do and for those movers there are a few helpful things that can be said.

First of all you want to make a moving checklist. Write on it the things you are going to pack as well as other tasks that need to be done, such as address change, cleaning and anything related to the move. In this way it gets easy to stay organized and you don't risk forgetting something essential that you have to do.

The packing is preferably started up to a month in advance. If you begin with the goods you don't use very often you can spread the work easily. This will make the packing, which is the biggest part of the move, less overwhelming and you are not likely to experience stress the days before you are moving.

It's a good idea to call the moving company about a month in advance to make sure they are not fully booked on the date you want to move. Since most people move the last and the first days of the month and on weekends, these are the times where moving companies are most busy, and unless you book them ahead of time you might have problem finding a reputable mover.

When you are packing you want to make sure that you use boxes that are suitable for their content, they should always be filled to their capacity. Both over and under packing may result in damaged goods. Also make sure that you use a good amount of padding around fragile items. To make the unpacking easier, label each box with its content and the room it belongs to.

If you want to save yourself a whole lot of work while arriving at your new home, make a plan before you move on where you want the furniture to be. Then let the moving company place it there straight away. Don't overwhelm yourself with all the unpacking that has to be done, take it bit by bit and let the relocating process take the time it takes.

The key to an easy move is simply to stay organized and well informed and to have a proper plan. In this way you save yourself from a lot of stress and your move can become a pretty convenient project.
