By now, you may well be aware that moving your home can be an extremely stressful time. Here are 5 tips for a less stressful moving day:
1. Make sure you have backup plans.
If you leave anything to chance you can bet it will not go as planned. (See: Murphy’s Law.) Make sure you have backup plans for all the things you can think of, from how to keep the kids and pets happy to what if the moving truck dies. A good backup plan is your first line of defense against a sudden complication.
2. Use professional movers.
Having only two able-bodied people to do all of the heavy lifting may become a problem with some of the heavier items or – even worse – if one of them gets hurt. It is best to get twice as much help as you think you’ll need, or even better, a professional crew who knows how to do everything efficiently.
