Getting ready to move and feeling overwhelmed? You're not alone. Here, we'll take a look at some of the top tips from professional residential movers who have seen it all.
First, you'll want to take about two weeks to prepare for your move. This gives you time to organize, get rid of belongings that you don't need, and figure out what you'll need to take extra care to pack.
As you go through your things and realize the size of the job ahead of you, you may want to consider reaching out to a professional moving company. While you may be able to manage a move on your own, hiring movers lowers the stress of your move and can make it easier to get set up in your new home.
Finally, you'll want to get packing! Each day, set a timer for at least an hour and pack. While it may be tempting to put off packing until the last minute, doing so adds unnecessary stress -- and can even delay your move.
If you have friends and family nearby, invite them over for a pizza and packing night -- having several people working together can make it easier to get ready to move. Then you'll be ready for the residential movers to come in. You'll be glad you stayed prepared!.
