How to Make Moving Less Stressful

Whether you are moving across town or to a new state, the experience almost always includes a little stress. However, you do have options to smooth out the rough spots and feel more in control of your relocation.

The following moving tips should help you limit your stress level as you look forward to living in a beautiful new home.

Create and Follow To-Do Lists

Technology makes it convenient for you to generate shareable to-do lists that your whole family can follow. These lists can cover everything from your packing timeframe to when to call your utility providers for shut-offs.

Even if you are not a huge fan of checklists in your everyday life, you will find moving much simpler when you avoid missing deadlines or forgetting key responsibilities.

Pack Only What You Want to Keep

Moving provides everyone in your household with the chance to get rid of all those unwanted items. Remember that everything you pack has to be shipped and then unpacked. Why bother to pack something you no longer need?

Many families evaluate their belongings to determine what they want to keep, what they can throw out, what they want to sell and what they want to give away. That way, when you get to your new residence, you'll have only the things you need and truly want.

Take Lots of Buffer Vacation Days for the Move

Too many business professionals add to their moving stress by only taking a day or two for their move. This can lead to frustration and mistakes. A better choice would be to take a full week, especially for an out-of-state move.

If it's not possible to take a little extra time off, consider hiring someone to help with the packing, which some moving companies offer as part of their service menu. The less you have to do to get ready, the less anxiety you will have overall.

Look for Temporary Serviced Apartments to Cover Housing Lapses

Not every move goes smoothly in terms of being able to leave one home and move into another one. Often, families have to wait to relocate to their final house due to time between closings or waiting for a new-build to be move-in ready.

During those moments, living in a temporary serviced apartment can be the perfect living arrangement. Temporary serviced apartments afford all the comforts of home, including a gourmet kitchen, in-apartment laundry, secure property and many more amenities.

As long as everyone brings along their key items, such as clothing, toiletries and devices, they can feel right at home until their long-term home is available.
