Moving? Stress Reducing Tips

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR632450000

The process of moving to a new home brings excitement and opportunity—along with a great deal of stress, frustration, and logistical challenges. If a move is in your near future, proper planning is the key to minimizing headaches on moving day. Use this brief cheat sheet as a guide to help you ensure a smooth transition:

Simple Tips to Ease Stress

A few weeks before you move...

- Start gathering packing supplies, such as boxes, tape, and bubble wrap. Friends and family, or your local liquor store, may be good sources for free moving boxes. Once you have the necessary supplies, begin packing items that you won’t need until after you’ve settled into your new home—this will help alleviate stress leading up to moving day!

- Schedule your utilities, including internet, to be transferred on or around your moving day. Many utility companies get booked weeks in advance!

- Plan to transfer your most valuable items, such as jewelry and important documents, on your own in order to minimize the risk of theft or loss. Pack these items separately and in a place where you can readily access them.


A few days before...

- Pack an “overnight bag” for your first few nights in your new home. Include pajamas, a few changes of clothing, medications, and anything else needed for personal care. This will save you the trouble of having to dig through boxes when you are exhausted from the move and need to find your toothbrush.

- If you have pets, consider taking them to a kennel or a friend’s house so they are not underfoot—or at risk of escaping—during the moving process.


On the day of...

- Check all cabinets, closets, and drawers to ensure that nothing is left behind and all of your belongings are safely en route to your new home.
