Moving to a new house can be a very exciting time. You’ll get to make a new place your own. You can host a house warming party and as they say, a change is as good as a rest. It can be refreshing moving into a new house. 

But there is a great deal of stress that goes along with moving homes. There is a lot that will need to be sorted ahead of the move, and packing up all of the items that you own in the world can be both physically and mentally draining. 

There may be times that you and your partner or family may bicker due to the stress that you are all under, and it can be hard to manage your feelings when it comes to the stress of moving. 

The best way to avoid stress is to plan your move well. Here are a few top tips for dealing with your home move in the least stressful way possible. 

Hire Someone To Help

Moving house is a lot of work. Everything that you own will need to get boxed up and moved to a completely different address. This takes a lot of effort and you may be worried about damaging things in transit. 

Hiring a company like On The Go Moving will mean that you won’t have to do all of the heavy lifting. You will get a professional crew of movers who are experienced and quick and safely moving your furniture and possession without a hiccup. 

Start Early 

If you want a stress free move, the earlier that you can start to pack the better. This will allow you to get a good head start on the long slow process that is required ahead of your move. 

Start by boxing up items that you won’t be needing anytime soon. The more you can do without until you move, the better.  Be sure that you don’t pack anything that you will need until after you have moved.

Pack Carefully

There are two things that may really cause you to stress once you arrive in your new home. Firstly, not knowing where anything is when you start unpacking. And secondly, when you start unpacking and you find something that has broken along the way. 

There is a way to minimize the risk of both of these stressful outcomes and that is to pack carefully and be organized as you do so. 

Packing similar items together and marking up your box with what is inside will help you. Label the box with the room that you want it to be put into when you move so that boxes will go straight to the correct place. 

Don’t overload boxes, particularly if you are filling them with heavier items such as books. You would not want them splitting as you carry them. 

Delicate items should be wrapped up and the box should be labeled informing the movers to handle the box with care.

So, you’re moving into a new property. This experience can differ from person to person.

There are ways to avoid these things and make life easier for yourself. Here are a few examples.

Packing is probably going to be the longest part of your moving process. It takes a long time to get all of your belongings packed up in boxes. This stress of this part is fairly unavoidable. But there are certain hacks that will make things a little easier for you when you’re unpacking. Don’t bother taking all of your clothes off of their hangers, instead, keep them on their hangers and slide them straight into a bin liner. The liner will protect your clothes and can just be pulled off as they’re hung in the wardrobe in your new home. Use suitcases for your heavier items; they will be easier to move on wheels with a handle. Pack with rhyme and reason: keep similar items in similar boxes. It just makes sense. Then you can unpack one room at a time. For example, kitchen first, bathroom second, bedroom third and so on. Also remember to pack a small bag with all of your essentials in, so you’re not searching through all of your belongings when you’re trying to get ready the next morning. Things that should go into this smaller bag can include toothbrushes, makeup, hair tools, underwear, socks and a couple of outfits.

So, it’s moving day. The time has come to actually get the move done and dusted. But do you really want to drive back and forth between your old home and new home? Multiple trips carting things between properties can be exhausting. What’s more? It takes up more than energy; it takes up time and money. If you have larger objects to transport from A to B, bring in a professional who specializes in furniture removals. This alone will make life so much easier for you. These people can transport the big things to your new property. They will load it out of the van and even help you to navigate it up flights of stairs. This could potentially be the hardest or easiest part of your move, so it is definitely worth paying out a little and saving yourself a whole lot of stress.

So you’re finally into your new home. It’s time to start making it feel like your own. But hold your horses before you start unpacking everything at once. If you’re going to be decorating your rooms, it might be easier to paint the walls and ceilings while your belongings are still safe and secure in their boxes. When you do start unpacking, take it one room at a time. It’s easier to do this than to jump from one room to another.
