Moving to a new house is very stressful because of the numerous things before you have to do before and to take into consideration. So, if you do not want to find yourself in confusion and frustration, go through these hacks to make the moving less stressful:
1. Make lists
Making a list is always a smart idea. If you do not want to forget to do something very important a list is the best idea. Grab a piece of paper and a pen and write down everything that you have to do in the process of moving. This way you will be more organized and won’t skip any crucial step. I assure you that when it is all ended and you will see everything on the list checked you will realize how wise this idea was.
2. Choose only the useful stuff
You already have a lot to take care of, no need to spend time and energy on stuff that you never use anyway. Grab some rubbish bags and throw away all the thing that are deteriorated or useless for you. You can donate the things that are in good conditions to people who really need it or sell them for some extra money and, in the same time, save yourself from moving the useless things to the new house. Although, if you still think that you might need some of this stuff in the future, but don’t really want to take them to the new house, you can easily find on the internet a storage unit just by writing “storage units near me”.
All you need is a lot of cardboard boxes, duct tape and a lot of time. Do not just throw everything in the boxes in order to finish faster. Try to organize the packing in such a way that one box to contain stuff from the same room. Unpacking at the new house will be so much easier and you will finish rearranging everything in just one day.
4. Ask for help
You will not be able to move all the stuff on your own unless you go back and forward several times, but there is no need to do it when you can just ask some friends in advance to help you or you can rent a truck to move all the things at once.
5. Move the utilities as well
Make sure you do not forget about the utilities! You should call in advance all the companies that provide you with these services (water, gas, electricity. internet) and inform them about the fact that you will move in order to change the address in their database as well and to continue to provide you these utilities in your new home.
6. Hire a moving company
If you are busy and do not have the time to do all this on your own then you can hire a moving company to take care of everything. Ask around about the best moving company and relax while they do all the work.
