1. Plan your moving day

The first thing you need to do aka the first rule to follow is to plan your moving day. And you need to plan it in advance. A couple of months before if possible. This will allow you to have full control of everything that is going on as well as always know what your next step needs to be.

You can simply take a notebook and create a plan by writing down every detail of your move. From the address to the moving cost. Or you can download an app for organizing a move and do it in a modern way.

2. Don’t avoid hiring movers

One of the biggest mistakes people make is avoiding hiring movers. This is definitely not something you should do. Having professionals helping you relocate no matter whether it be a long or a short distance move is the best way to make your move less stressful.

There are plenty of moving companies out there and not all of them are expensive. Find the one that suits your budget. But beforehand make sure that this is a reliable moving company.

3. Buy proper packing supplies

You need to make sure that you get the proper packing supplies for your move. Packing supplies are there to keep your belongings away from damaging. You can buy them from the moving company that you hire if they offer some. This is a good way to score a discount since you are hiring them. Maybe even consider hiring packing services. They come in handy if you are very busy.

4. Pack on time

Start packing on time. At least two weeks before you need to move out is the perfect amount of time to start packing if you have a regular-sized apartment with a regular amount of things. If you know that you have a lot of things to pack, start packing even sooner than this.

Have a packing plan too. Include it in your moving plan. Organize the order of the rooms for packing. This will make your packing process more organized.

5. Don’t overstress for no reason

People tend to overstress for no reason. Moving is stressful but it isn’t that stressful. Everything is going to be fine. And even if something breaks during the whole process, you will replace it with something new. If this happened while you were moving with movers, you can just file a moving damage claim. Worrying too much isn’t good for you at all.
