Moving to a new home can be stressful, but there are ways to make it go smoothly without pulling out your hair. The best way is to avoid some common moving mistakes. Here are three of them you don’t want to make.
#1: Skipping the List
Failing to write a moving to-do list is a huge mistake. It might seem like the things that need doing are obvious, but in the hustle and bustle of moving, it’s easy to forget some critical things. Take some time to make a list. It will help keep you organized, reduce your stress, and make your move go more smoothly.
#2: Waiting Until the Last Minute
Get started as soon as you know your move date, don’t wait until the last minute to get organized. Movers get booked up, especially during the busy seasons. Waiting until the last minute can mean you can’t schedule your moving company when you need them. It can also mean you don’t have cable or internet when you get to your new home, your utilities don’t get transferred in time, and you don’t get your mail at your new address.
#3: Waiting to Pack
Packing up a house takes much longer than most people estimate. Don’t wait until the last minute to start packing. If you have to do it in a rush, you could end up with broken items, things you can’t find, and lack of organization when you get to your new home.
