If you are moving house but are perhaps only going a few streets away, you might be thinking that this is going to be far less stressful than moving a longer distance; however, the truth is that the process is the same, and so is the amount of stress, if you do not get a handle on the process.
For a short-distance house move you still need to plan everything down to the last detail. The temptation to simply throw everything in the car and do hundreds of trips to the new place may be tempting; however, this is only going to pile on the stress, as the process will take much longer than you think and you will be running two homes for a few days while you do this.
Make sure that you take the time to pack everything properly, as you do not want items arriving at the new place damaged. You will still need to make sure that you buy boxes and other packing materials – a short-distance move is not going to save you this hassle.
Never think that a moving company will not want to know because you are not traveling far. A professional moving company will still be able to offer you its services and give you advice on how best to manage your move. These services will be invaluable, particularly if you have high-value items that need to be cared for properly during your house move, as the professionals will have the expertise you need to ensure that everything arrives in one piece.
