Stress Reduction Hacks for Moving Day

Stressreductionhacksformovingday
  • Get all packing and labeling done in advance

There’s going to be so many important details that pop up on moving day itself, so it will be much easier for you if all the packing and labeling is done before the movers arrive.

  • Only bring what you need

If you have items or furniture that you no longer need, throw a farewell party where any of your friends can come take any of your belongings that you want to give away.

  • If it’s rare – resell it!

If some of your belongings are particularly rare furniture, art, or appliances consider selling it via eBay or antique or consignment store. Some objects that you would normally overlook as total junk can carry extreme value at auctions.

 

  • Make a Moving Day Survival Kit

We suggest packing a light bag with every item you may need (out of true necessity, or for comfort) during moving day. This includes snacks, a change of clothes, any medication, contacts/eye drops, and a toothbrush and toothpaste bottle.

  • Make sure your phone is charged

You don’t want to only realize when you’re trying to communicate with your movers that your phone is out of battery – it can delay, or even derail an entire day’s schedule. Leave your phone plugged in the night before so you know you can get a full charge.

  • Ensure that nobody else in your building is also moving the same day.

If you live in an apartment building, sharing the elevator with another moving tenant can add a lot of unwanted stress to the process. Coordinate your move with your neighbors so that you can be certain that you have the use of the elevator or freight lifter to yourself.

  • Purchase touch-up paint or wall filler before moving day

In case a wall gets dinged and you need to make quick repairs to avoid losing your security deposit to your landlord, make sure to purchase handy instant sealant tools to make instant repairs if need be.

  • Additionally, make sure to have a set of basic tools

These can be extremely handy for your movers. Make sure to have a screwdriver, an allen wrench, and a box cutter.

  • Make sure your assistants are truly on board.

You want to make sure that any friends that are going to be helping you with your move are prepared and aware that the day may be filled with labor. The best volunteers to recruit are friends who you know well, and who are familiar with the basic layout of your property.
