It’s no secret that moving can be complicated. From coordinating with your new destination to packing your belongings, it’s not uncommon for moving parties to encounter a few bumps along the way. Fortunately, you can keep these issues to a minimum by being prepared and anticipating certain common problems.
To avoid a hair-pulling nightmare of a move, keep an eye out for the following common hurdles:
- Beware of procrastination: Every now and then, we’re all guilty of waiting until the last minute to do important tasks. Unfortunately, this is the last thing you need on moving day. Procrastination hurts packing and can delay your move by a considerable amount of time if there is still that ‘one last thing’ that needs to be done.
- Third parties: You were supposed to rent a truck from company A, but they have since overbooked and you are now scrambling to find a replacement truck. The landlord to your new place is mysteriously unavailable. Your friend who promised to help you move is an hour late. While all of these scenarios are beyond your control, many of them can be prevented by planning ahead and confirming with all parties involved in your move.
- Over packing: Over packing your boxes makes them less easy to ‘grab and go’ and can slow down your move. Pack large, heavy items in larger boxes and keep smaller items in smaller boxes. Likewise, pack items according to their corresponding room so you are able to easily find everything when it comes time to unpack.
