How to Have a Stress Free Move

Home relocation is an exciting milestone! It’s full of new experiences and perfect for a fresh start. However, it can also be an extremely stressful and time-consuming ordeal that takes a toll on even the best planners. Fortunately, we’ve put an infographic together with strategies that can help you! You can utilize these tips before and during the move to make the lengthy process as efficient as possible. Here are some ideas for a smooth and seamless transition to your new home!

When sorting through all your stuff, chances are you’ll stumble on some things that you no longer need or use. For this, consider a garage sale. A garage sale can help offset some expenses and will definitely help with saving space while packing. The cost of bubble wrap and boxes can quickly add up when relocating. However, you could reduce expenses by using clothing to wrap breakables such as fine china, vases, and glasses. You may also be able to get free boxes from grocery stores, bookstores, or people who just moved into your neighborhood.

Hiring a professional moving company to transport your belongings may help relieve some of the stress from moving and the burden of carrying heavy boxes. Alternatively, if you are looking to save money and are willing to do most of the work, you could hire movers to do only the heavy lifting and driving. Be sure to shop around and get quotes or estimates from a variety of businesses to find the best deal. This is especially important if you’re moving cross-country.

Moving day can also be chaotic and disruptive for children, too, who often rely on consistency and routine. If you have little ones, try putting together fun projects for the big day to help keep them occupied and entertained. Load tablets with their favorite movies and get them activity books and travel-friendly games to play during transit.

Additionally, consider exploring the neighborhood with your children before moving day. Plan a walking tour to scope out the best playgrounds, the downtown area, and their new school. By the time you move, they may likely feel more comfortable and familiar with the new environment.

Moving can be an incredibly stressful life event. However, incorporating these tips can help you make the process easier and more efficient. For more hacks to organize a stress-free transition to your new home, check out the accompanying resource.

  1. Your tips on how to handle the children when moving were especially helpful. I love my son, but he can get quite frustrating to deal with at times and I can already expect him to pester me when we’re doing something as crucial as a move. I’ll think of ways to keep him entertained so he won’t cause any problems while I get a professional moving service to help us out.

  2. I can definitely see how important it is to entertain your kids to prevent them from being a nuisance during the moving day itself. My sons may be obedient at times, but asking them to pack all of their stuff will definitely leave them feeling bored. I’ll think of something for them to do so they won’t bother us during the moving day itself.
