Moving mistakes to avoid

Moving mistakes to avoid

Making a move to a brand new home can be a stressful, overwhelming and occasionally even traumatic tine for some people.  There is the furniture and a number of appliances to place into categories, pets or children to account for, and personal belongings to go through.

There are a number of mistakes that some people undergoing the relocation process have made in the past that have resulted in a complete moving nightmare and should thus be avoided at all costs.

Lack of planning is one of the biggest reasons why moving becomes a disaster.  Moving is not just about putting all your things into boxes and having them relocated to your new home.  Making a move involves a great deal of preparation and decision making, and trying to wing it is never a good idea.  Planning a move involves compiling an accurate inventory of all of your possessions and labeling and then grouping boxes together either by their purpose or by room.  The date and time of the move should also be incorporated into the overall planning process.

Members of your family should all have been informed about the impending relocation several months before the actual day of the move, and they should also be aware of their responsibilities and what their individual tasks are that need to be accomplished prior to moving.  The right level of delegation and planning of any and all responsibilities will help to save time and eliminate stress.
