3 Ways to De-Stress During a Long Distance Move

hidden costs

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:

#1: Step Away from the Boxes

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.

#2: Go to a Movie or Read a Book

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.

#3: Let Someone Else Worry about the Long Distance Move

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.

2 Helpful Tips to Start Packing Like a Pro

hidden costs2 Helpful Tips to Start Packing Like a Pro

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:

Pro Moving Tip #1: First, Make a Plan

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.

Pro Moving Tip #2: Get Rid of Stuff

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!

If you decide you want to get professional help for your move, reach out to our team of experts at Nilson Van & Storage. We will help to make your residential move as easy as possible.



Why a Full Packing Service May Be Right for You

hidden costs

Why do office moves make business owners so nervous? Avoid procrastination by hiring a full-packing service provider.

Office moves provide the potential for growth or cutting costs, but the headaches involved might be enough to put one off altogether. Prevent procrastination from taking root. Hire a professional full-packing service to make your commercial move quick and painless.

Your Employees Are Not Professional Movers

It’s tempting to hand your staff the responsibilities of moving their own offices, but it’s not worth the risk. They’re not trained in the proper ways to pack up files and equipment. Bad packing could easily damage your items or lead to lost or destroyed records. Even worse, heavy lifting could injure your employees.

Manage and Minimize Moving Risks

Compare the employee mover experience to using professionals. The experts know exactly how to pack your items for maximum speed and efficiency. They minimize business interruptions, losses and damage by keeping things organized and protected during shipping. They also minimize your liability by carrying the proper insurance.
