Moving to a new home is a lot of work and can be super stressful. Instead of pulling your hair out, take a look at these four practices for a smooth moving day.
#1: Keep a List
The number one way to have a smooth move is to keep a to-do list. Start it early, when you first decide on the move and keep it running until your move is complete. Then, cross off done items and update with new to-dos. This will keep you organized from the get-go.
#2: Arrange for Child and Pet Care
If you have children or pets, you don’t want them to stress during the move or be underfoot. Arrange for care for them on the day the movers come. This will reduce their upset, and yours.
#3: Pack Drinks and Snacks
With the chaos that seems to accompany moving day, it’s easy to forget to plan for eating. Pack a cooler with drinks, snacks, and small meals you can eat on the go. It will keep your energy up and prevent meltdowns from hunger and low blood sugar.
#4: Remember Your Chargers
Don’t pack your chargers! These will be very handy on moving day, evening, and the following day. Leave out the chargers for your phones, computers, and other devices so you won’t run out of battery in the middle of the move when you might need it most.
Moving is hard, but it doesn’t have to be a nightmare. In addition to these awesome tips, make sure you hire the right mover to ensure a smooth moving day. Reach out to Nilson Van and Storage for more moving tips and to schedule your free moving estimate.
