All about Moving 101
If you want your move to be efficient and orderly, here are a few basic tips to help you lessen the stress of moving:
1. Always pick the right moving company. They should be efficient and experienced, and have the requisite services plus value for money. Horrible movers can really ruin a move, so make sure you have the right one. Look for recommendations and feedback online, and make a short list of possible candidates from some preliminary research. Once you have a short list, try contacting them directly to see which one fits the bill of what kind of services (and corresponding fees) you are looking for.
2. It's important that you have a plan of action for your move so that everything is mapped out and contingencies can be thought up in advance to prepare for any mishaps and complications along the way. Having a plan will also make things more efficient and always give you something to refer to as a guide so you never veer of track.
3. Pay attention to the packing. For one, discard any extra items that you don't need to bring along - sell them in a garage sale, give them away or just chuck them into the trash. Also, pack your belongings carefully, especially breakable items.
