Most people don’t look forward to moving day. It can be a big hassle, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the seemingly endless details of getting all of your belongings carefully packed up, loaded onto a moving van, and taken to your new home.
But experts in the moving industry say that there are things we can do to minimize the headaches associated with all that packing and moving. And as with so many things in life, one of the keys is starting early, and being well organized. In most cases you should have plenty of lead time with your move: major moves are seldom a spur-of-the-moment thing. You could have up to a couple of months lead time before moving day arrives. Moving professionals say that you can use that time most efficiently if you create a list that itemizes everything that needs to be done, on a week-by-week basis.
If you’re using a moving company then you should definitely have one of their representatives come out to your house to get an idea of the scope of the move. The representative should be able to provide you with a written estimate of the job. And just as important, they’ll see whether you have any unusually large or heavy items that will require some special care by the movers when the big day finally arrives.
