However, there are ways to make your move go as smoothly as possible. Regardless of where or when you will be relocating, you can make moving day more successful and have a pleasant entry into your community by following these tips.

Get Organized

One of the best ways to help your move go well is to start planning and organizing as early as possible. You can start by organizing your furniture and personal belongings, as well as identifying the other tasks that need to be done. Creating a pre-move checklist of things to do will ensure that your new home is ready for your arrival. You may need to transfer or set up utilities, internet, or cable television service.

Bear in mind that these services often require advance notice that ranges from a few days to weeks ahead. A file folder or Google document to keep all your receipts and records from the move will be very helpful. You should also save all contact information and confirmation numbers in the file for easy retrieval for future use.

Hire Wisely

If you are relocating locally, you can probably handle the majority of your move. But if you will be moving across town or the country, it is smart to follow others and hire a professional moving company to help you. As you plan your move, make sure you choose reputable businesses, get multiple quotes from various moving companies, and do a good comparison. There are companies that will offer an hourly rate or leave things off of their quote to appear more competitive, so make sure you ask a lot of questions and have them include all charges. This is even more important if you are relocating to a very far area. You have to ensure that you can entrust your belongings to a company that will treat you honestly.

Purge & Document All Items

One of the most intimidating tasks when planning to relocate is packing. To make moving easier, set aside time to go through your possessions and identify which ones are easily replaceable or would be too difficult or expensive to move. Few things to pack and move usually mean a faster and more efficient move, as well. Once you’re done, you should document your belongings as you go.

When you start putting things in boxes, keep track of them by writing down on the box whatever it is you pack into it. Keeping track of which box holds which will be easier. Packing this way makes unpacking in your new home way easier.

Pack an Essentials Box

Another good practice is to pack an “essentials” box. It is wise to pack things you don’t use daily, but as the date of your move draws nearer, you need to think about what to do on your first night in your new home. You can make the first night more pleasant by creating an essential box to take with you.

Important things to put in an essentials box include phone or computer charging cords, toilet paper, paper towels, plates and utensils, garbage bags, and an emergency kit. You can also put in a pair of pajamas for each person, blankets, some pillows, candles and matches, and snacks and beverages.

Make a Plan for Kids & Pets

Finally, relocating can be a stressful time. Make sure that you have planned something to keep young children and pets out of the movers’ way. A friend or family member can watch them during the actual move to help keep their anxiety under control and keep them away from the busy activity.

It is a good idea to have a child pack their things the day before moving, then have them fill a suitcase or box with their favorite toys to alleviate fears of leaving something behind. If you are moving with pets, remember to add food bowls and pet food to your essentials box and give them a lot of time to get used to their new home.
