5 Tips for Making Your Move Stress Free



For many of us, moving is in the top 3 most stressful life events, just behind divorce and death. There are ways, however, to make your move less stressful.


1. Don’t Do It Alone
Hire a moving company Ottawa to do it for you. A moving company will pack up your house, move everything to the new house, and unpack it. It doesn’t get much simpler than that! Or, if you’d rather handle the packing on your own, the moving company can at least help out by disassembling and packing up furniture, then doing the heavy work of loading and unloading the truck (which, let’s face it, is the worst part of moving!).



2. Don’t Take It All
If you’re not making a permanent move, why bother taking everything you own? Instead, get a storage unit. In the end it’s worth it. Having less stuff makes it easier to get your house ready to move, pack and unpack it all, and find room for all of that stuff in your new house. And of course, less stuff makes it easier to do it all again when you move back.



3. Figure out What You Can Get Rid of
By the time you are a couple of days into the moving experience, you are going to look around and regret having so much stuff. You never realize how much stuff you have accumulated until you have to pack it up to move it all. Take a good look at what you have and what you are willing to part with. Have a yard sale and make a few extra bucks, or just make it extra simple and ask a local charity to come and pick it all up.


4. Get To Know Your New Hometown
With the internet, it’s very easy to get to know the town you are moving to. Even knowing where the neighborhood grocery store is in relation to your new house can help ease your stress a bit. Plus, you can find out about local events, shops, and restaurants that you can look forward to going to.


5. Start Early
You don’t want to have to make important decisions and arrangements just a few days before you are supposed to move. That would be enough to stress out anyone, even someone who loves to procrastinate!

Moving can stress out just about anyone. But there are ways to make it a little easier on yourself. Happy moving!
