Moving is considered one of life’s biggest challenges because it’s a major transition on its own. With it come other big life changes such as new place, new friends, new job and etc. On the other hand, many assume that relocating is an awful experience. It’s not supposed to be a negative experience even if it really does take a lot of energy and time to complete. In most cases, people make mistakes while moving and they are the source of the negative impressions, feelings, and emotions. You shouldn't let moving anxiety take over you. They are all easily avoidable which is why I will enumerate some of them. When you decide that it’s time to change your residence you should take your time. 

The process of planning, organizing, packing, paying, reserving, moving and so on can’t be rushed. That is why you should give yourself some time, at least five weeks in advance. 

Start small, if this is your first move you probably have no idea how what and when to do it. Research a little before charging into unknown territory, be prepared for it, even if it’s only theoretical. Approach moving services and ask them for tips and advice, not all movers are narrow-minded as to only provide moving services. Note that if you go with a smaller moving company that would mean less hassle. Packing in the last minute, panic packing. Sounds familiar?  

This is a commonly known mistake most inexperienced people make when travelling and especially when moving. We always tend to do it but when the time comes we leave it for next week or another day. Unless it’s done peace by peace at a time it becomes a big inconvenience to do it last minute, not literally. 

Going through different parts of the house countless times and losing precious time knowing your move is a few days away.  And of course, if you are late with the packed stuff the moving company you hired will charge you extra for going over the arranged time. The right way to label your boxes is mandatory because that way you will know what is the content of each box. Which on the other hand will help you find an appropriate place for them in your new place? Don’t label boxes like music and when you have to unpack you will open countless boxes labelled the same way just to find a single disk.

The essential box is a simple solution to this problem and that’s why all experienced movers strongly recommend you prepare one. What should one essential box consist of? Well, let’s say it with a few words – all vital necessities for you. Of course, only you could decide which are the most important items for you but there is some stuff that should definitely find a place into your essential box. 

Which are they? Toothbrushes, soap, towels, coffee, washing liquid, a few sets of knives and forks, a couple of dishes and cups are a must. If you prepare a box with necessities this will let you have all essentials at hand and there will be no need to rummage through every single box to discover where you’ve left your towels. An essential box is a great facilitation and it’s worth taking advantage of it. It could really ease you when professionals from a removal company deliver all your stuff.

Make Farewell Party Before You Move Out 

There are many things which should be done before to load the van with your belongings. You should decide which items should be thrown and which ones should be kept. On top of all, you should pack everything carefully before the removals company comes over. It is not easy to do it yourself, you definitely would need some help. The easiest way is to let man and van company take care of the packing but unfortunately, not everybody could afford this option. If you want to fit your budget but you don’t have much free time to do the packing yourself, maybe it’s time to ask for some help – for example, you could ask some of your friends or family to assist you. 

Thereby you wouldn’t only ease the packing but you would have and a great opportunity to meet with all your friends, you could even make a farewell party.
