Moving can be a stressful experience, but there’s a lot you can do to make it go much more smoothly. As movers who help people from Sydney, the North Coast and Brisbane to anywhere interstate or internationally, we know what works and what doesn’t. When you’ve decided to pack up and relocate, whether you’re a family or a large company, there are just so many big items and little details to keep track of and to remember. This post will give you some top-notch advice about how to minimize your Moving day stress.
Choose a smart day to move
This might sound simple, but it’s key. Deciding what day to do your move can make a big difference. It may be the case that only one or two days can work for you, and that’s fine. But keep in mind that weekends are the busiest for moving companies, so weekdays can work more smoothly in terms of scheduling and leaving some leeway around time constraints. It’s recommended that you book your movers at least one month prior to your move date.
Start packing way ahead of time
A big part of moving day stress is when you feel like every last thing you have to do is coming up at the last minute. Take accurate measure of how much stuff you’re going to need to pack up and have ready for moving. Many people just don’t quite realize the amount of stuff they have and how long it will take to organize. When you’ve decided on a move for certain it’s already a good time to begin packing up those non-essential items that can then be stored and ready to go. Things like seasonal items, holiday décor, books, and extra kitchen and living room items can be optimal things to get packed and wrapped nice and early. Also, don’t be afraid to donate, recycle and throw out stuff you don’t need anymore. This gives you an edge when moving day comes and leaves less to get ready on the big day.
Self-storage units can be a lifesaver
It’s highly recommended to rent out a self-storage unit prior to moving day so you have it all ready to go. It also helps to have one ahead of time so you can move bits and pieces in ahead of the main moving day. Here at Kyle Bay Removals & Storage we have a number of storage options for you starting at only $16.50 per week. We offer secure, guaranteed safe storage (temporary to long-term) that will keep your valuables secure, and we can accommodate everything from standard boxes of items and furniture to boats and vehicles. Having a storage unit booked ensures that you have an intermediate place to store stuff and also gives you the option of doing several “mini-moves” to get some items packed up ahead of the main moving day.
Keep a packing list – it really helps!
It might seem like a lot of trouble, but making a list of everything you need to pack up can greatly reduce moving day stress. As Sydney’s best moving company and removalists we tally up a list of everything that needs to go, of course, but it’s highly recommended that you do up your own list in preparation for moving day. Also, if you pack something ahead of time in self-storage you can check it off so you don’t panic and wonder where certain items went on moving day. The list can also be a good way to cross-reference and double check with movers to make sure everything has been taken care of and accounted for. There are some great apps to help you out with your moving day list, including Evernote, Google Keep, Sortly, Home Move Pro and Moving Day.
