Moving Home Without the Added Stress

You’ve found the property, paid the money and are excited about your new adventure in a new house. The only problem is, you still have to do the move. Well, instead of making it something that is an obstacle to getting you into your home, let’s take a look at how moving can be made a stress-free experience that is all about new horizons rather than being held back by old ones.

Be Prepared

To make anything in life easier, you should be organized and moving home is no different. Planning ahead with spreadsheets, labels and any other tools at your disposal is the only way to go. Consider that you are planning on moving your entire life between two different locations so you should approach it with a clear head and an idea of what you are doing. First of all, the plan should be based on the different rooms you currently have so that when you box everything up they are able to be clearly marked. You will thank yourself for this method on the other end.

Labelling

When you are marking up your boxes, make sure you are making it clear what you are putting in the box and where it belongs. You might want to consider making the most of spreadsheets and repeat on a digital document what you are writing on your physical boxes.

Don’t Pack Everything

It is a hard part of the journey, but you should acknowledge early on that not everything will be making the move with you. There are some belongings that you have collected over the years that have outstayed their welcome or just aren’t doing the job anymore. Instead of piling up bin bags in your current home, hire a skip and get moving the things you no longer need out of the property as soon as possible. You don’t want to be callous when it comes to throwing things out, but you do need to be strong. Your new home will have room for some of your old life, but fresh memories are waiting to be made.

Storage

For those things that you can’t quite decide between throwing out or moving with you, consider moving them into a self-storage unit. This method can also be useful for items that you are confident you want at your new property, but aren’t currently quite sure where you are going to put them. Moving is hard enough without having more boxes than that you need when you arrive at your new house, so move some bits into storage to be dealt with at a later date.

Get Help

You might want to do the whole move by yourself, and good luck if you do. However, you should put some thought into how much work actually goes into moving home and the fact there are professionals out there who do this kind of thing every day. You will quickly find the experience of the professional movers to be much more valuable than you could have ever had hoped.
