3 Rookie Moving Mistakes to Avoid

Moving can be one of the most exciting times of your life, especially if it’s your first real move. Unfortunately, moving can also be one of the most stressful times of your life and can lead to serious problems if you’re not careful. More than 63% of adults have moved to an entirely new community at least once in their lives and 37% have never left their hometowns. Whenever you move, you need to take the process seriously.

There are so many things that can go wrong throughout the moving process: there could be a problem with the property you’re moving to, your finances might not line up, or your could mistakenly plan for the wrong move-in day. In addition to all these major issues, there are even more common mistakes that could lead to a confusing move and cause even more stress.

Not Calling a Moving Company

An experienced moving company will be your best friend before, during, and after your big move. If you aren’t working with professional local movers, you’ll end up having to do everything yourself. Do you really want to rely on your college buddies to arrive at your place at the desired time, help lift and carry heavy things, and not damage any of your valuable items or property? Rather than stressing yourself out even more with the difficult task of moving, call a trusted moving company and get professional assistance.

Procrastinating Packing

When it comes to procrastinating, even if that’s how you maneuvered your way through high school and college and the rest of your life, you should consider cutting back on the last-second packing when it comes to moving. If you wait too long, you’re going to be running around your house like crazy on the day of the move. Since you’ll be freaking out about the time- or lack thereof – you’ll end up putting things in the wrong boxes, throwing out valuable items, and causing all sorts of problems that will end up resulting in even more problems down the line. You don’t need all that extra stress on your shoulders, you just moved for Pete’s sake! Pack well in advance and you should be fine.

Unpacking Right Away

You’ll be so excited to set up your new place exactly how you want it, but don’t do too much right away. Make sure that you have all your (labeled) boxes before you unpack anything. As much as you’ll want to set up your TV in the spot that you think is perfect, there is still probably a lot to be done on the day of the move, so pump the brakes.
