Moving is a BIG Job

By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Getting ready to moveDevoid of getting rid of everything that you have and begin again at your new home, moving requires a overwhelming amount of work. When you determine it’s time to move, there will be a number of tasks to make certain your move goes forward as stress-free as possible. You need to manage budgeting, house hunting, selecing a moving company in Colorado Springs, packing, alerting everyone you know, transferring or setting up utilities, unpacking, finding new doctors, registering the kids for school and so on. With all those things to get done in a fixed amount of time, it would be more surprising if moving wasn’t a big job. Nonetheless, we have a tendency to make moving more difficult and laborious than it could be. So, we are here to mention a couple ways that we usually make moving more compliated than it should be.

1) Poor Planning

Make a detailed plan for your move, one that explains everything you must accomplish and include a schedule with time frames. Be sure and assign someone to every undertaking.

2) Procrastination

Why pack up your things right away if you can put it off until later, right? Wrong! When you find yourself regularly postponing things, you may be setting yourself up for an ugly moving day. Whether it is confirming professional movers in Colorado Springs or purging your belongings, procrastination might lead to delays as well as additional costs. Don’t postpone tasks on your to-do list. Put together your moving timeline and then stick to it.

3) Moving All Your Stuff

Let’s face the facts, a lot of people have tons of stuff in their homes which they don’t need. Therefore, when it’s time to load up and move, if you just proceed that every little thing must go with you, your move will be more costly and take more time. Before you begin packing, take some time to dig through your things. Do not plan on moving belongings that don’t work, that you won’t use and that you just don’t need. It’s always also a good thought to evaluate weighty items, as they may cost more to move than they are worth, as well as they may be difficult to locate a place for them in your new residence.

4) Missing Packing Deadlines

The movers will be at your house early tomorrow. Your stuff isn’t even close to being packed up at this time, therefore you run around like a frantic person and squeeze stuff into any boxes you can find. Inadequate packing makes it more likely that belongings will break in transit. Substandard labeling can make it more difficult to find things while you are unpacking. If you do not get all your things packed up before the professional movers in Colorado Springs arrive, you chance trying to pack whilst the movers are loading the truck. Or worse, the movers could cancel for the day and ask you to call your customer service coordinator to schedule loading for another day. Don’t dawdle. Start packing well ahead of your move date.

5) Doing too Much Yourself

There will be a point when moving becomes too much for a lone person. Hiring professional movers in Colorado Springs and having the moving company pack your things are distinct things to do to lighten your work. However there are more ways to get help. You can ask relatives to help you hold a yard sale or to watch your youngsters or pets when you are packing. In addition, some charitable organizations can come and pick up your donations, which should save you from driving to the drop off location. You might consider hiring a cleaning service to take care of your old home after you leave and to additionally deep clean your new home before you move in. And finally, make sure that all family members are pitching in with moving related tasks. Even your younger kiddos can be asked to do age-appropriate jobs.

Frequently over the moving process, it is not uncommon to ask yourself, “Why is this so much work?”. But, when you sidestep the pitfalls mentioned above, hopefully your move will all fall into place.
