Moving can be tough. Many Americans move at least once in their life, but a lot of the time we move more than once. If you’ve ever moved before you know that there’s a lot of prep that goes into the process. You have the struggle of not knowing when to pack, what to pack up, and how to pack your belongings. If it’s your first time moving, it can be even more of a struggle to sort everything out and know where to even begin.
When you are preparing for a move, there is so much that needs attention. From packing up all of the things in your home and office space into boxes appropriate only for each other item’s new location-to hiring movers who know how best handle fragile items such as artwork without scratching them along their path from one place to another; every detail counts! But what if I told you it could be easier? Here are four ways to make your moving experience easier for everyone:
1. Get Organized, Stay Organized
If staying organized is not your strong suit, we understand. Everything is in place, things are where they should be, but just barely holding on because there was no “plan”. That is what makes moving so hard for people—there is so much to do and so little time, if you can’t handle all the stress it’s really not worth trying to tackle everything at once.
The best way to get over this trial by fire is to be organized. Make a list of everything you need done ahead of time; pack, clean, print out addresses for work, family, and friends. Do whatever you can ahead of time so the moving day itself is less stressful and more about executing your plan.
2. Label Everything Ahead of Time
When it comes to the actual moving day, the last thing you want is to get your boxes mixed up and be scrambling around to figure out which box goes where. Label your boxes ahead of time, as you are packing up each box, so that you can stay as organized as possible on the day of the move. Label the boxes with what’s in each box and where each box goes in your new space.
3. Get Ready To Use Your Patience
Nothing is harder than moving, especially if you are not organized or don’t have anyone helping you with the process. Over time though, with every trip to the U-Haul and every box packed up, the process will grow easier. It’s all part of learning to adapt to your situation no matter what you are using or doing in life.
