Tips for a Stress-free Move

Moving can be stressful. Not only do you have to pack and unpack all your belongings, but you have to adjust to a new living space and, if you’re new to the area, learn about the place you live. Ease your stress on moving day by taking measures to stay on top of your to-do list and outsource certain aspects of the day so you can focus on settling in.

Hire Help

Packing and unpacking can wreak havoc on your back, and if you have to move everything yourself you may find yourself wishing you’d hired help. Give your back a break and hire a professional moving company in my area to move your items for you. You’ll be able to focus your time and energy on cleaning up your new space and settling in.


Before packing up your belongings to bring with you to your new place, take some time to ask yourself if you’ll use them once they’re unpacked and put away. If the answer is no, then it may be time to donate or sell them to someone who will be able to use them. Moving is a great opportunity for a fresh start and you don’t want to start off by cluttering up your new place.

Get a Sitter

If you have children or pets, it can be stressful and dangerous to have them running around while you and the movers are trying to bring your belongings into your new home. You likely want to focus your energy on unpacking and settling in  and may not be able to pay attention to your children or pets. Finding a sitter to look after them for the day can ease a lot of your stress and allow you to safely settle in without interruption.

By following these tips, you’ll be set up for a successful, stress-free move.
