The most common moving mistakes

Moving is a very stressful experience, even at the best of times, but the situation can be made a lot worse by not taking into account the little things that will invariably pop up at some point during the course of events.  Whether you are making use of a moving company or attempting to perform the relocation on your own, it is very important to make sure that everything is done properly in order to avoid losing both time and money.

One of the most common mistakes made by people during the process of moving is not packing their belongings in the correct manner.  If you are going to pack your possessions by yourself then you need to remember to pack delicate items such as china, crockery and glassware in protective bubble wrap.

One all too common error is to pack such items in the back of the car in a place that is not secure.  The heaviest goods should always be placed at the rear in order to stop the less heavy items from getting crushed while being transported.

Another common moving mistake is not preparing the route that you intend to take in advance.  Even if you are using a moving company and are just shifting down the street, it is important to plot a route ahead of time in order to avoid roads that get heavily congested and take into account necessary stops.  Planning a route also stops you from getting lost along the way and thus wasting precious time.
