You’ve found the right home and signed on the dotted line, now you’re wishing all your belongings could magically appear in a new home without any stress or sweat. Not so fast, however you can significantly reduce the stress of moving into a new home by carefully planning your move ahead of time using our quick tips! 

  1. Start Planning 8 Weeks Ahead
A big portion of stress from moving comes during last minute deadlines. To avoid this frenzy, it’s best to have a plan! Spacing out tasks will make you feel calm and collected throughout your moving journey. Ask your relator for a moving checklist beforehand! 
  1. Pack Light
Moving is the perfect time to get rid of clutter in your home that you don’t need. Packing can be overwhelming and tends to be quite time consuming if you don’t hire a professional. Focus on items that are important to you and try to sell or donate other items! 
  1. Unpack Using Colour Coding 
Label boxes with specifics of what you hold and what room they will be going to! Colour coding the boxes with different coloured sharpies can further aid you with organization. Assign each room a colour so that the boxes can easily be moved to the right rooms.  Following these steps will ease your unpacking process!
  1. Real Estate Sale 
Holding a real estate sale is a great way of getting rid of materials you no longer need! Between advertising for the event, creating a fun space to showcase your items and making some income is a great distraction in a time of stress. Anything that isn’t sold can always be donated to people in need. 
  1. Consider Hiring a Mover 

Hiring a quality mover will make your moving process a breeze! Instead of stressing over how you’ll manage to fit all your goods in the back your car, hire a professionally trained moving company that will ensure the job gets done. Your goods will stay safe, and you will have more time to focus on other things.
