Moving can be incredibly stressful if you don’t prepare properly for it. There are some people who wait until the very last minute to come up with a game plan, and more often than not, it comes back to bite them. So if you are planning to move soon, make sure you take the time to consider how you’re going to go about it. Sit down and come up with a schedule that includes everything from purging old items that you don’t need anymore, to putting the things you do want into the proper containers and boxes so that they can be moved easily.
Outside of failing to plan ahead, there are a few other mistakes that people tend to make while moving as well. Check them out below.
Failing to label boxes
When you move, you’re going to want to put things that belong in the same room in your new house or apartment into the same boxes. For example, kitchen items should go with other kitchen items, bedroom items should go with other bedroom items, and so on and so forth. This will make it much easier for you to unpack in your new place. Additionally, you should make sure you label everything correctly so that you know where to put boxes once they reach their final destination. You’re going to have a huge headache on your hands if you don’t.
Purchasing cheap supplies
It might be tempting to purchase the cheapest supplies possible when moving. After all, you’re probably going to end up throwing away many of these supplies when you’re done. But if you rely on cheap supplies, they might give you problems during your move. Boxes will tear and break, bubble wrap will fail to keep things secure and tape will rip open sooner than it should. By purchasing quality supplies, you can avoid these problems and ensure your belongings travel safely.
Trying to move without help
You could try to move without hiring a moving company, but why would you want to? A moving company will help you move all of your boxes and furniture quickly and get you set up in your new home or apartment quickly. Otherwise, you’re going to spend a lot of time taking trips back and forth from your old home to your new home, and it’s going to take you much longer to start unpacking. The heavy lifting involved in a move can also be dangerous for people with certain health issues, or histories of prior injuries.
