Moving is a BIG Job

By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Getting ready to moveWithout getting rid of everything that you have and start over at your new home, moving calls for a tremendous amount of work. Whenever you decide it is time to move, there usually are a number of tasks to make sure your move goes forward as stress-free as possible. You must deal with budgeting, house hunting, choosing a moving company in El Paso, packing, alerting everyone you know, transferring or setting up utilities, unpacking, finding new doctors, registering the children for school and so forth. With all that stuff to get finished in a certain amount of time, it would be more unexpected if moving really was not a big job. Nonetheless, we have a tendency to make moving more complicated and laborious than it should be. And so, we’re here to discuss a couple ways that we tend to make moving more work than it could be.

1) Poor Planning

Create a comprehensive plan for your move, one that breaks out everything you must accomplish and add a timetable with deadlines. Make certain and assign someone to each undertaking.

2) Procrastination

Why pack up your things today if you can put it off until later, right? Wrong! If you find yourself constantly delaying things, you could be setting yourself up for a troublesome moving day. Whether it is booking professional movers in El Paso or packing your stuff, procrastination may induce delays and also increased costs. Don’t put off items on your to-do list. Make your moving timeline and then stay on schedule.

3) Moving All Your Stuff

Let’s be real, a lot of people have a bunch of things in their residences which they don’t even use. Therefore, when it’s time to load up and move, if you simply proceed that all the stuff has to relocate with you, your move might be more costly and more time consuming. Before you start packing, set aside some time to go through your stuff. Do not plan on moving items which don’t work, that you won’t use and that you merely do not need. It’s always also a smart thought to assess bulky items, as they could cost more to move than they are worth, and they might be tough to locate a spot for them in your new residence.

4) Missing Packing Deadlines

The movers are coming first thing tomorrow. Your belongings aren’t even close to being packed up yet, therefore you rush around like a delirious person and cram stuff into the boxes you can find. Inadequate packing makes it more likely that stuff will get broken in transit. Poor labeling can make it complicated to locate things while you are unpacking. If you cannot get everything packed up before the professional movers in El Paso arrive, you run the risk of attempting to pack whilst the movers are loading the moving truck. Or worse, the movers might cancel for the day and tell you to call your customer service coordinator to reschedule to a different day. Do not delay. Begin packing well before your move date.

5) Doing too Much on Your Own

There will be a point at which moving becomes too much for a single person. Hiring professional movers in El Paso and having the moving company pack your stuff are distinct things to do to lighten the work. However there are more ways to get help. You might ask friends to help you hold a garage sale or to babysit your kids or pets when you are packing. In addition, some organizations can come and pick up your donations, which will save you a trip to the drop off location. You might think about hiring a cleaning service to take care of your old home after you are moved out and to also clean and sanitize your new residence prior to when you move in. And finally, make certain that all family members are pitching in with moving related jobs. Even the younger kids may be given age-appropriate jobs.

Usually throughout the moving process, it’s not uncommon to question, “Why is this so much work?”. However, when you sidestep the pitfalls discussed above, hopefully your move will proceed as planned.
