Moving can be a very difficult experience, but the good news is that there are methods to cut down on the hassle and to ensure that the entire process of relocation goes a good deal more smoothly than you might believe possible. Here are several tips to help you to achieve this.
Every relocation is a big move, whether you are moving across the country or just across town. You need to give yourself a minimum of six weeks to completely prepare for the move and to reduce the stress that is inevitably associated with trying to rush through the process.
You should take organization and paperwork very seriously. The great majority of people do not enjoy organizational processes or tedious paperwork, but making a move can end up becoming overwhelming if you accidentally misplace important documents, papers or other items. Create a binder in which you can keep of all of your moving records, make copies of any and all work/school/medical documents, and decide how you intend to go about moving your personal belongings.
You should not forget to deal with your utilities and bills. It is easy to overlook these things when other tasks seem more pressing, but you need to take the time to schedule disconnections and connections and to arrange the transfer of all your utilities and bills.
