Moving home is a ton of work. One of the reasons people don’t even consider it is because of how much works it involves. It’s an absolute nightmare… And that’s why we’ve suggested on our last post that you should do anything you can to hire professionals to get it done for you. Or at the very least assist you in part of the process.
One of the worst parts about moving is doing all the packing before moving out. Everything you’ve ever owned has to be packed to be moved. This is the time where you truly understand how much useless stuff you actually have.
You thought packing everything into small boxes was difficult? Well, it’s time to move them out now! Packing everything is definitely a pain, but once it’s done, you have to put everything on a car or truck to be moved. You won’t believe how heavy some boxes are.
When compared to packing or moving out your boxes, transportation isn’t the worst part about it. But you still have to find a way to move all of your stuff from one place to the other. And if you don’t have a big enough truck, prepare to go back and forth a few times.
All the tedious process of packing and moving out repeats itself… You need to move everything from your vehicle into your new house, unpack everything and put it in its new place.
Do you really want to do it all yourself? We very much doubt it! You’re definitely better off just hiring professional movers to do it for you. If you can afford it, we’d even recommend that you ask them to pack most of your stuff as well. It’s 100% worth it.
Your best bet for staying organized on moving house is to go room by room. Often, looking at moving the entire house rather than room by room will make you feel much more overwhelmed than you should. If you think about it, when you move, you will most likely have similar rooms stocked with similar furniture and accessories.
