Moving to a new home should be exciting! Whether you are relocating to a new state for an exciting career opportunity or just downsizing to a smaller home or apartment on the other side of town, getting a fresh start in a new place can mark the beginning of a new chapter in your life and should be celebrated. Unfortunately, moving can also be an exhausting (and expensive) process, and all the stress associated with the task can cloud your excitement. While there is no denying that moving can be a daunting task, there are things you can do in advance to ensure that your moving day goes smoothly! If you’re planning an upcoming move, keep reading to learn a few of our expert-approved tips for ensuring a seamless moving day.

Start Early 

One of the worst mistakes when planning a move is waiting until the last minute to hire movers, pack your belongings, and otherwise prepare for such a significant task. One of the easiest and most effective ways to ensure your moving day is as stress-free as possible is by beginning preparations early. Be sure to follow an expert-approved moving timeline and begin taking care of essential tasks, such as calling professional movers and packing up your home, at least a month in advance. While it can seem daunting to begin taking on these tasks so early, you will be thankful you did when your moving day finally comes, and you have taken care of everything you need. 

Use the Right Packing Materials

No matter where you are moving, packing up all of your belongings and transporting them to a new space can be stressful. Luckily, choosing the right packing materials can help save you some stress on a moving day and will ensure that all of your personal belongings make it to your new home safely. For additional peace of mind, you can even hire professional movers to pack your items for you. This will not only save you time during the packing process but will help to alleviate some of your worries on moving day, as you can rest assured that all of your belongings have been expertly packed and will arrive safely at your destination. 

Prepare for the First Night

Preparing for moving day doesn’t end at moving your belongings to your new home! One of the most stressful parts of any moving day is preparing to spend the following days in your new space while all of your belongings are boxed up and difficult to find. To help alleviate some of this stress, be sure to take extra care to prepare for the first night you spend in your new home. Put aside bedding, toiletries and hygiene products, chargers, snacks, and anything else you anticipate needing on your very first night in your new home. This will ensure that you can get cleaned up, get comfortable, and get a great night’s sleep in your new place after a long and stressful moving day.  Moving can be stressful.
