Moving can be stressful enough and you want to ensure that it can go as smoothly as possible. Here are common moving mistakes that people tend to make and how you can fix them if you find yourself in this situation.

PROCRASTINATION

When it comes to moving, you need to do a lot of planning. It is easy to get distracted or put moving and packing off. However, you want to stay on top of things coming up to your moving date, there is nothing worse than packing up your whole house in a rush.

You End Up Doing Everything Yourself To Save Money

Renting a truck, yourself, and getting your friends and family to help you out sounds like the best thing to do to save money. However, you should still consider hiring a professional moving company. You will get a lot more coverage with a moving company, for example, depending on the contract that you have with the company, you will receive valuation protection, liability coverage, and insurance of some form. They know how to handle your delicate products and how to transport them safely from one property to another. A lot of moving companies also provide packing services where they wrap delicate items carefully and know how to disassemble furniture.

Not Labelling Your Boxes Properly

Labelling all your boxes properly will save you so much stress when it comes to unpacking these boxes. A clever idea is potentially having a symbol system for certain boxes e.g., put a star on things that need to be unpacked first. This is a great organisation tip. Also clearly label boxes that heavy and fragile items are in to prewarn the people moving the boxes, so they do not get any surprises.

Not Packing A Survival Kit

This is always a smart idea just simply because you never know what could go wrong on moving day. However, it is good to have a survival kit to move in with moving day, especially if your moving company won’t be there with your stuff for a couple of hours. A survival kit could include scissors, an address book, dog food, toiletries, kids’ toys, soap, coffee, tea, snacks. The list is endless. It is also handy to bring a small amount of cash too, you know in case of emergencies.

These are our top 4 moving mistakes and how you can fix them so you and your family can have a stress-free move.
