Moving is never a pleasant thing especially if your last moving experience didn’t go too well. Not only you are expected to keep account of everything that you move, but you also have to go through the stressful process of choosing the right home for you and your family. Your relocation to another home is only as stressful as you make it; there are indeed tricks to the moving process that can definitely lighten your emotional and physical load.
As you begin your home search try to look around for a single level home or if it is in an apartment building then try to secure the first or second floor. Moving into a three-level home or on one of the higher floors in a highrise complex can really test your patience especially if you are self-moving and the building is without an elevator. Not only can this moving project turn into a tiring affair, you also run the risk of destroying your furniture and appliances in the process.
Next, remember that toddler bed that you bought for your son just a week before moving. Well we suggest that you hold off on assembling it until you move into your new home. This would give you enough time to find the suitable space for it in your new home and even if it does not fit, you can trade it for a small-sized bed that would.
To further reduce stress with your self-move it would also be wise to get help from more than two friends to help you along since it would cut your time in half and save you from making too many trips at a time.
Having your moving boxes packed and labeled ahead of time would also save you a lot of last-minute scampering around. By packing in advance you would be able to sort out the things that you do not want and those that you want to keep so that you would not have to move with too much junk when you get to the new place. Before moving into your new place, it is always recommended that you enter the home beforehand and clean and tidy it up a bit so that you can set your furniture in an immaculate environment.
Most of all although moving is a difficult task, you can turn things around by making it a fun project. By having a few friends and family over on moving day, your good company coupled with light finger foods and drinks will be just the stress reliever that you are looking for. In addition, you may find that those who show up in the party can also provide the extra helping hands that you need.
