4 Tips for a Stress-Free Move

January 6, 2017

Use these tips to have a stress-free move and check out our Redstone Discounts of the month to make your move better.

Are you making a move soon? If so, you might be feeling some anxiety. Moving is a stressful and sometimes complicated task, but there are ways to make your move go smoothly. Whether you’re using a moving company or tackling it on your own, utilize these 4 tips to help make your move safer, smoother, and less stressful!


Give yourself plenty of time


As with any large project, give yourself plenty of time to tackle your move. Try making a timeline to help keep things on track. If you’re having movers help, make a timeline of what you need to get done before they come and one for the day of. If you’re handling it yourself, make a packing schedule, so you don’t overwhelm yourself the week of the move.

 

Clear a path


Nobody wants to deal with an injury during a move, so keep a clear path to ward off tumbles and falls. Deter from stacking boxes too high to avoid sudden shifts or falling boxes. Try to designate a packing table or area to help keep space open and clean. It’s smart to keep boxes close to the door to help you or the movers easily zip in and out; just don’t block any major walkways.

 

Make labels and a list of boxes


Whether you make labels on the computer or go old-fashioned and simply write on the boxes, it’s important to keep track of exactly what is in each box. This will also help you when you unpack, allowing you to prioritize which boxes need to be opened first. Write down what is in the box and which room it goes in, and make a master list of all your boxes so you can easily track all your items.

 

Have all the essentials


Even if you’ve hired a moving company to pack, make yourself a kit of all the packing essentials just in case. Purchase a few extra boxes in varying sizes, packing tape, markers, paper and bubble wrap to have as back-up. You can never be too prepared!
