Moving house is one of the most exciting yet stressful things that can happen in your life. It’s the start of fantastic new changes that you are embarking on and that can be overwhelming in itself, let alone the packing and organizing side of things! Whether you are moving to a street just a few minutes away, to another state, or even to another country, many of the same principles apply to moving house. Here we have put together some top tips to take the stress out of moving and make it a much more enjoyable experience for all involved.

Have a de-clutter well in advance

The sooner you declutter your items, the better it is. By having a big de-clutter in advance, it means that when it comes to the time you actually need to pack, you don’t need to worry about sorting through everything, you can just pack it all in a logical order. Get rid of items that you haven’t used in the last few months, or anything that is broken or needs fixing up. If you keep saying to yourself you’ll sort it out, chances are you won’t have the time, so recycle it or donate it to a charity instead.

Hire professional help for moving day

Moving house takes a lot of organization, so why not take the stress out and opt for professional help to make it that bit easier? Look into companies such as SMARTBOX Solutions, Inc. who offer portable storage containers for your next move. These innovative storage units make moving a breeze, plus their team can help you move everything, taking one less thing off your plate to think about. Professional movers can not only pack up your stuff, but unpack it when you get to your new destination. This can make the process much faster and easier.

Send your children to a babysitter for the day

While your children are lovely, they’re not the most practical things to have around when you are trying to move. Not only will they get in the way, but you’ll spend your time having to worry about what they are up to. By getting them sent off to a family member or a babysitter, you can relax and know that they are being looked after and you can just focus on the task at hand. 

These are just a few things you can do that are sure to take the stress out of moving. By being as organized as you can ahead of time, it means that on the day you just need to focus on actually moving, rather than sorting things out. Be sure to wear practical clothing that you don’t mind getting dusty or messy and tie your hair up to keep it out the way! What are some top tips you have for a stress-free move?
