I feel very very fortunate that the last time Lodi and I both moved will very likely be one of the last times we ever move in our lives. Moving is such an enormous job! When I mom moved house we rented a Uhaul even though she was only moving one mile down the road. It saved us countless trips and was completely worth the money. At the time I was in the middle of working on this house
and living with her so the majority of my stuff just went into the garage at the time.

Moving from one home to another is a normal part of life. You go from living in your parents’ house to living in university dormitories, then to your own leased home, and one day you may be lucky enough to own your own home. Moving is a difficult process regardless of how often you move. The good news is that, although moving isn’t always simple, there are techniques to help it go faster and lessen the amount of stress you experience. Read on to find out what some of them are.  

Get Prepared 

As soon as possible, begin packing for your next move. If you know that you’ll be relocating at the end of your current tenancy, you can begin the process of packing immediately, for example – pack up everything you’re not currently using. In fact, you can make life easier on yourself before you even begin packing by following these simple steps.  

Write down all of the places where you are interested in looking for a new home. Make a list of the reasons why you’re leaving your current home. All of these questions need to be answered before you start considering where you might go or how you’ll get there. Once you have the answers, you’ll be better positioned to pack and move forward. Preparation is the key to a successful outcome. 

Find Some Help

No matter whether you want (or need) to move fast or you have as much time as you could ask for, trying to do it all by yourself is sure to cause you stress and make the entire situation a much more difficult one than it needs to be. That’s why it’s so important to find some help when you know you’re going to move.  

For some, that help will come in the form of professional movers. Although you’ll have to spend money on this, they’ll move you quickly and expertly, and you won’t have to worry about anything other than giving them instructions on where your furniture and possessions need to go. If your budget won’t cover this, ask family and friends to help out.  

Plan Your Packing 

Now it’s back to the packing. As we’ve said, starting as early as possible is always a good idea, and it can often be a good idea to rent small storage units to put your things in the meantime. That way, you can fill up a couple of boxes each day, take them to the unit, and keep them safe. This makes moving day itself much easier when there is less stuff to move around. 

 If you ensure you only store non-essential items in the storage unit, you can move house with your furniture and whatever you need, and then gradually go and retrieve and then unpack the other boxes. Although the move will be quicker, getting settled is something you can take your time over, so it’s worth considering. You might even realize that you don’t need these items at all, and you can either keep them in storage or perhaps sell them or give them away.
