Start Planning in Advance
The best thing that you can do is simply to start making plans as soon as you know the moving date. Giving yourself plenty of time allows you to research your options, book time off work, enlist the help and generally get prepared and this should greatly reduce stress.
Buy Quality Packing Materials
Packing is one of the biggest causes of stress and it is easy to see why. You might have some boxes lying around, but you are better off investing in new boxes, tape and labels so that you know that you have everything that you need along with strong, reliable boxes.
Hire a Trusted Man & a Van Service
When it comes to something as important as moving, you are best off leaving it to the pros. A trusted man and van service are one of the best ways to reduce stress because you know that you are in good hands, it can free up time for you to focus on other areas and the move will be as efficient as possible. It is always worth paying someone to do this as they know the best way to carry out moves and can make your day much easier.
Create an Inventory
It can be very easy to forget what you own when you start packing everything up, which can then create stress when you are actually moving and unpacking. This is why you should always create an inventory when packing so that you know exactly what you own and what box everything is in.
Ask For Help
Even with a man and a van service, you will still find it helpful to ask friends or family for a helping hand. This is always useful as you could have someone stay at one property while you head over the other, help with carrying boxes or look after kids or a pet – just be sure to treat them to a good meal and a few drinks at the end of the day!
Moving a house can be incredibly stressful, but this does not have to be your experience and these tips should reduce stress while also helping to make the move as smooth and easy as possible.
