Why an Organized Move is More Relaxing

The idea of moving naturally brings up a lot of anxiety for most of us, and it’s only normal. Moving means uprooting ourselves from our area of comfort and making a transition to a new area with new people, places, and things. While these might even be a few of the reasons you decided it’s time to move, they can also cause a great deal of stress throughout the moving process. By planning ahead and organizing, you can make sure your transition goes as smoothly as possible.

An organized move also means a more relaxing move—and you’re probably wondering: “how can a move be relaxing?” Well, it can! In fact, it can be exciting and a joyous occasion instead of the stress-filled mess you anticipate. With the right amount and type of planning, an organized move comes with many benefits and advantages. Take a look at some of the reasons why making lists, packing ahead, and hiring a trustworthy moving company can make your move more relaxing:

You won’t forget important things

Making lists isn’t a strength everyone has, but there’s no time like the present! If pads, paper, and pens aren’t your style, try downloading a list-making app on your phone that is fun and engaging. Making lists helps you to avoid forgetting to complete important tasks, and it can help you accomplish goals and deadlines in advance to avoid procrastination. There are even comprehensive moving lists online that you can download that will help you think it through ahead of time.

You won’t run out of supplies

If you stay organized throughout the preparation stage, you can stay on top of replenishing your packing resources. It can be a total hassle to be scrounging for boxes and packing materials on the day of your move; in fact sometimes it can seriously delay the process. Estimating the amount of materials you need ahead of time, and purchasing them before you run out, will ensure that you’re not left without enough on the day of.

You won’t lose track of items

Staying organized is the key to sanity in a move—especially if you take the time to properly take an inventory of your items, boxes, and label them appropriately. One of the most stressful parts of moving is not being able to find the important things you’re so used to having easy access to. You can even pack a special box of important papers and immediate things you’ll need throughout the course of your move so that it doesn’t get misplaced and you can easily find the items at any time.

You won’t be rushing to pack at the last minute

Packing ahead of time is a huge time-saver, but it also ensures that your items are packed with patience and care. When we rush the packing process, that’s when things get broken and damaged. It’s best to take your time so that you can organize each box the way you want it, and not have any packing left to do on the day of the move.

You won’t be worried about items breaking

As we mentioned before, rushing your packing can put your items at risk of breaking and accruing  damages during transit. Staying organized about your packing and clearly labeling boxes that have breakable items in them will save you heartache and money over broken belongings. You can even keep a group of boxes with breakable items in them in a separate area so that the moving company knows exactly which boxes will need to be handled especially carefully.
