Moving the Stress-Free Way



If you ask people to describe the experience of moving to a new home in one word, you can guarantee that most people will say ‘stressful.’ We have generally assumed that this is simply the way it is. However, moving to a new property does not need to be as stressful as you imagine. We have some great tips to ensure your home move is as smooth and hassle-free as possible.

  • Plan the move way in advance – Nothing is going to cause you a greater amount of stress than leaving the move until the last minute. Plan at least several months ahead, giving you more than enough time to organize the move and to align yourself with a good moving firm.
  • Put together a moving checklist – To ensure you do not forget anything along the way, it is a good idea to put together a moving checklist. In fact, you can find plenty of readymade moving checklists on the Internet to make the most of.
  • Create a document box – You should grab a file or a box for storing all of your important documents. This includes the likes of insurance papers, wills, house deeds, and passports. Keep this box in a place that is easy to access.
  • Get rid of all of your clutter – The last thing you want to do is simply move your clutter from your old home to your new place. Did you know that clutter is highly stress inducing? It makes it so difficult for people to relax, so you will only end up feeling stressed and agitated in your new property, which is the last thing you want. Instead, separate all of your clutter into three piles – must keep, would be nice to keep, and throw away. Repeat the process until most of your items are in the latter category. You can then take advantage of a professional service like the one provided by All Points Waste Service, and they will take all of your waste off your hands. This means you don’t have to worry about it and it won’t cause you any unnecessary stress.
  • Don’t forget about your pets – Your pets are moving house too, so you need to plan for their safe and comfortable move. The most stressful part of the process is typically the car journey from your old home to your new property. Make sure you have a car seat cover, such as a back seat hammock, for your pets, and look into any motion sickness solutions. You should also keep your pets out of your old property while cleaning it.
  • Pack a moving day survival kit – Last but not least, there is nothing worse than arriving at your new property and having to rummage through all of your boxes to find your PJs. Instead, pack a moving day survival kit. This should include your nightwear, as well as snacks and provisions for hot drinks, bottles of water, your phone chargers, toiletries, and anything else you are going to need over the next day or two.
