Even though you may not be looking forward to your upcoming move, there are a few things you can take into consideration to make it less stressful.

To make your move as stress-free as possible, it’s important to equip yourself with the right tools, resources and tips to help you throughout the process.

Let’s take a look at the most useful tips we’ve researched:

  1. Plan Plan Plan. Planning for your move is one of the most important things you can do.  Figure out what supplies you’ll need, what movers you’re going to hire (or if you’re doing it yourself), and your strategy for packing.

2. Read Your Contract. If you opt to hire a moving company, make sure you carefully read the contract.  Know your responsibilities and be aware of any hidden charges.


3. Splurge for Packing. Packing your items can be one of the toughest things to do during your move.  If you’re unable to find the time to pack, ask your moving company if they provide packing/unpacking services and request a quote.


4. Label Carefully. Labeling your boxes is one of the most efficient things you can do before a move.  Knowing where each box should go can save you a great deal of time and stress.


5. Pack Wisely. Saving smaller boxes for heavy items can help you and your movers do the job more easily, saving you time and money.  Use large boxes for items such as small appliances, pillows and blankets.
