Stress feels bad, and it can also bring about a lot of mistakes during the moving process. If you plan to move out of state, then the pressure can be even greater to keep a cool hand and make sure everything is going smoothly.
However, stress is often hard to avoid, and when your whole life is being turned upside down by the moving process, you’ll want to practice some stress preventing habits that can help you avoid it as much as possible:
- Make sure you plan everything ahead and that you have a clear strategy for dealing with everything you have to do. From packing all your furniture or storing it when you move out of your home, to scheduling the move and hiring some extra hands with movers Wheat Ridge CO offers for carrying your furniture to its new destination, it’s important to have everything checked and double checked before you even lift a finger.
- Avoid overthinking. Lots of things “can” go wrong, but in most cases they don’t. However, if you keep focusing on everything that could remotely go south while you’re moving, then your stress will lead you to mistakes that could lead to an even worse outcome.
- Communicate with your friends and family and get them to help with things they are willing and able to do. You don’t have to carry the entire burden on your own shoulders, and you’ll find that the people who are closest to you will be more than happy to help you out and lift some of your anxiety for the move.
We know moving from one home to another is not the most enjoyable experience. Hundreds of objects suddenly seem meaningless, boxes filled with all kind of things, stress related to transportation arrangements and costs, etc. If it is planned in time, however, the process can become significantly smoother. We propose you to approach it from a new perspective: be enthusiastic about the new place and the possibility to rearrange the objects into a new functional scheme; see the relocation as a new start and take the opportunity to simplify your life by giving up all unnecessary things.
Here is a list for staying organized while packing for your move.
- Two months before the move:
Decide which contracts you have to conclude for your new home
Decide if you are going to hire a professional relocation company
You can start having fun sorting some things out.
Purchase shipping boxes and start storing things by category. Do not forget to use labels on each box, to know what is inside.
- 3-4 weeks before the move:
Pack the things you do not use frequently: clothes, jewelry, cosmetics, papers etc.
Continue sorting things and, if you move home appliances, make sure they are clean and functional.
Confirm your arrangements with the moving company
- The days before the move:
Make sure that every family member (if any) packs a hand bag with essential things, as if they were on a 2-week vacation. Create your own hand bag with necessary things, documents, cards etc.

Choosing the correct moving truck is sometimes a high stakes decision. A truck that is too small means multiple trips will be necessary in order to complete the move, which means the moving process will be longer than expected. On the other hand, renting a truck larger than what is needed will leave behind unused …
