How to Make Moving Less Stressful
So, the big move is coming up. You’re stressing over this and that and the whole nine yards. From shutting-off utilities in one place and turning the ones on for the new place, to packing boxes, putting them in a moving van, finally unpacking, and everywhere in between. Yikes!
Don’t you worry yourself too much, it all doesn’t need to be as stressful as you’re making it out to be! Read on to learn some ways to reduce the stress of the move, courtesy of the Boynton Beach movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage.
What Can You Do?
One of the first things you can do to reduce overall stress may be a slightly stressful task in itself. This recommendation is to get rid of the things you do not need! Many articles on moving contain a section on ridding yourself of STUFF. Too much stuff can add so much extra, unnecessary stress, and it can cost extra money you probably shouldn’t need to spend. Why waste the money and energy?
Get rid of clothes you hardly/never wear, sell or give away old electronics, throw out all your trash, and sell the stuff you just don’t really use.
If you’ve got children, they may be eager to help for about an hour or so; however, you may want to consider getting daycare for your kids. Organize some kind of plans for the little ones, whether that’s with an actual daycare center or with friends or family. For the teenagers, maybe they’re not so willing to help, let them go hang out with friends, go see a movie, or galivant about the mall. Whatever it is, they may not be as helpful as you’d like—let them go! This can save you an incredible amount of time.
Get help! Enlist the help of adult friends and/or family. If this isn’t possible, perhaps the best method of getting a few helping hands is to invest in Boynton Beach movers. All My Sons Moving & Storage employs well-experienced professional movers who will take great care in helping you move. Whether you need full service or partial service, our movers will take loads of stress out of your move. Movers are a great investment.
Organize everything as best as you can. Whether your organization is room-by-room, by category, or as detailed as subcategories within rooms. Organization is a major key to moving. It makes everything so unbelievably easy, in comparison to simply tossing things in boxes and just moving.
Plan, plan, plan! If you get a schedule in order for the whole move, it will increase the efficiency of your move. Higher efficiency equals less stress. Start creating an action plan as soon as you know you’re moving or as soon as possible otherwise.
Protect and keep track of your valuables. There’s nothing more stressful than losing valuables. Round-up all your valuables, make sure they’re in a safe place you can keep track of. Forgetting or losing valuables can cause a boatload of stress—this is not the boat on which you want to sail, so swab the decks of any problems by being sure your valuables are well-taken-care-of.
When unpacking, you may want to keep that crew of friends/family and/or Boynton Beach movers to help you to unpack and move on in! You can’t always keep track of how everything works and where everything goes or how to rebuild everything. It’s likely someone in your crew remembers where that darn hammer went! Or maybe you forgot how to put the entertainment center back together—surely the movers will be able to help with that! Your best bet is to keep that original crew, it can be an incredible boon to you to do so.
When moving day comes along, you’re going to want to be as free of stress as you can be. Invest in the professional Boynton Beach movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage to assist you in your move. Whether you need partial service, full service, or a couple supplies, we’ve got what you need!
