Getting Ready to Move

Stress is an unavoidable part of the moving journey, and this stress is felt by first-time movers, and even seasoned movers as well, so the only thing you can do is to try to stay calm and move past it as it happens. Stress aside, moving to a new place gives you chance to start over. You can reinvent how people will perceive you, get more social, have another stab at redecorating a new space, and so on. Before you get to all of that, you first have to survive the moving process itself. A good moving company is necessary, and if you have not found one already, you should check out Y’all Call I Haul as a potential option.

  • The first thing you want to do is to determine your moving date a couple of weeks in advance. We tend to work better when we have a visible deadline, so realistically set a moving date and inform the movers of the date beforehand.
  • This might seem unnecessary to some, but try to create a to-do list. There are a lot of things to be done and it is easy for things to slip out of my mind. Having a tangible list of things to do will help, and you can check off things are you are done completing them, making it easier for you to keep track of how much work you have left.
  • Try to sort out all of the necessary paperwork as soon as you can. Lingering paperwork can potentially create problems for you in the form of fines, pending payments, and other issues. So, try to get all of that out of the way before your moving date.
  • Stay organized and don’t forget to label boxes with whatever is inside them. In the case of boxes carrying fragile items, you need to label them and make sure the label is visible and easy to read.
