Is your long distance move stressing you out? It’s time to de-stress with these 3 simple tips.
Long distance moves can be exhausting, overwhelming, and absolutely stressful. There are so many factors to consider, so many calls to make, and far too many boxes to pack. Instead of jumping to the next moving task, let’s take a moment to talk about self-care. Your move will not be as successful as it can be if you are one big ball of stress. Here are three ways you can de-stress during your move:
You simply can’t spend every available moment packing and planning for your packing. You will burn-out fast. Instead, step away from the boxes and take a walk or call up a friend for coffee. It can be a short time away, but even 30 minutes is going to help you to bring your stress level down and give you time away so you can refocus.
The idea here is escapism: the art of distracting yourself. It can be done in a healthy way. By taking some time to watch a movie or read, you allow yourself the ability to escape into a different realm where boxes and packing tape and checklists aren’t on your brain.
We aren’t joking here. Just imagine how your stress level could melt away with some help. Our expert movers at Nilson Van & Storage will be happy to swoop in and save you from the stress of it all. We have been moving families and companies across town, across the country, and even overseas for more than 70 years. You can count on us to handle your move with expertise.

If it’s time for a residential move, you need these 3 tips to help you pack like a pro.
Whether you are getting ready for a residential move across town or cross-country, packing can be an overwhelming process. It’s time to take a deep breath and dive in, but first consider these three helpful tips to pack like the pros would.
Maybe you are trying a DIY move, or perhaps you just haven’t found the right moving company yet; either way, you want to begin the packing process on the right foot. Our pro movers at Nilson Van & Storage have been packing up and transporting companies and families for years. We have the tips and tricks to get you on the fast and organized track for your move. Here are two of our favorites:
75% of a successful move is in the plan. Are you organized, or will you just start throwing stuff in boxes. Our pro tip: develop your plan before you start putting things in boxes. You can decide to start packing and labeling your boxes based on where they will go in your new space. Label the boxes with items you know you will need as soon as you get where you are going, and pack them last so they will be easily accessible. Planning before packing will save you tons of time and hassle.
More stuff = more stress, especially when it comes to packing and moving. Why move stuff that has been sitting in the basement in boxes since your last move years ago? There’s no reason to put yourself through that effort.
Instead, start weeding out, throwing away, and donating. If you haven’t used it in over a year, you probably don’t need it. Of course, you could even go extreme “KonMarie style” and get rid of anything that doesn’t bring you joy when you hold it. Just imagine how much less you would have to pack up if you tried that method!
