Avoid These 3 Common Moving Mistakes


You’ve made the deal, signed the paperwork, and received the keys to your new home. There’s just one small task left to complete: pack up and move all of your stuff. Whether you’re moving to the other side of the country or just across the city, there are certain moving mistakes that should always be avoided.

  • Procrastinating

Moving is stressful enough on its own. Waiting until the last minute to plan your move creates a lot of additional and unnecessary anxiety. Begin your packing process at least a week or two in advance, depending on how much stuff you have. These 7 important packing tips will make the process go more smoothly!

  • Packing Everything

In order to pack up your home, you must first drag everything out into the open. This gives you a great opportunity to begin weeding out the things you no longer use or need. Carrying useless or unwanted items on to your next home will only waste time and add to your already heavy load.

  • Hiring Inexperienced Movers

No one is going to treat your possessions with as much care as you would.  You have more of an emotional connection to these items than anyone else. If, however, you decide to go with a professional moving team, research your options well in advance of the moving date.

We hope these tips will help make an easy transition into your new home!
