The Stress-Free Way To Relocate

The Stress-Free Way To Relocate

Moving can be challenging for families and life in general. Packing everything up and going somewhere new can feel stressful. All the logistics easily get on top of you.

But what if there was a way around this? Well, it turns out that there is. Many people have discovered various stress-free ways of relocating that don’t involve them pulling out any of their hair. Here’s what to do.

Create Your Moving Checklist

The first step in the process is to create your moving checklist. This should break down in detail everything you need to do by day, week, or month.

Put down all the tasks that you need to get done before moving out. Have a category for decluttering, packing, hiring movers, and, importantly, notifying utility companies that you’ll be leaving. 

Set Realistic Timelines

The next step is to set various realistic timelines. You’ll want to make sure you have enough space in your week to get everything done. 

Start by considering how busy you are, and how much time you can dedicate to the process. For most people, this will be a few hours during the week after work and then on weekends. 

Take a look at your timetable and what you need to get done around it. If you’re an extremely busy person, make preparations at least two months in advance of the move. 

Use Various Packing Strategies

The next step is to adopt the proper packing strategies. Which you choose will depend on your needs and the type of belongings you need to move. 

If you’re not using professional packers, start by collecting the packaging materials you need. This would include things like cardboard boxes, foam box fillers, tape, bubble wrap, and so on. Everything should feel secure to the point where damage won’t occur, even if items are moving around in a truck. 

Start Moving Stuff Out Now

Another great way to reduce the stress of moving is to start moving stuff out of your home immediately and storing it somewhere where it can easily be put onto the back of a truck and moved once you sign all the paperwork and move into your new home.

Sam Store & Move explains this concept in more detail. It’s basically where you put everything into a transportable container and then move it once all the paperwork is done. 

This approach helps to make the moving process more seamless. You don’t have to do all the moving on the same day. 

Do All The Paperwork

The last step is to do all the paperwork involved in moving home. Ticking all the boxes and getting everything done is essential for a happy move. 

When you arrive at the new home, check the meter readings and inform the relevant utility companies immediately. They can then cross-check these with their records and ensure they bill you the correct amount. 

Next, you’ll need to tell the tax authorities and car insurance company about your new address. This will help them send you correspondence to the right address and ensure that you pay the correct premiums.
