Are you moving into a new apartment? Moving into a new house can be full of excitement and anxiety at the same time. It’s often a roller coaster. There’s so much to pack, clean, and transport. Moving is often an overwhelming experience for beginners. Even for those who have moved houses before, your experience doesn’t offer much help.

You are supposed to handle the packing, legal responsibilities, real estate contracts, renovation, and cleaning (to name a few). All these tasks can take a toll on your mental and physical health. If you are also stressed about moving, here are a few tips that can help!

Hiring Movers

Moving can be super stressful and exhausting. You may hire friends and family for packing, but they can’t load those heavy boxes on the moving truck. You need to work with Vancouver / Kelowna Movers to pack your furniture and move these heavy and large items through small spaces without any damage.

Professional movers bring a large moving truck and the necessary equipment to help you with the moving. Before hiring movers, set a budget and get quotes from the most reputable moving companies in your area.

Pack Your House

Once you have hired a moving company, move on to the packing. To begin with, create a list of the inventory to be moved. You can check each item off the list once it is packed and loaded on the truck. There’s no magical trick to packing everything overnight. You will probably have to stuff everything into random cardboard boxes at the last minute.

Pack at least a week before the moving day. This will give you enough time to select items that need to be packed, donated, and sold. Now is the perfect time to get rid of the clothes, accessories, appliances, and other items you will not use in your new home.

Get Insurance

Moving insurance offers financial protection to families that move houses frequently. If you are moving to a new city or state, getting insurance before planning a move makes sense. If there’s any damage to your goods during transport, the insurance company will cover the expenses. Although insurance isn’t mandatory for long-distance moving, it’s good to get one. Furniture movers in Burnaby are insured and certified. They offer safe, hassle-free, and quick transportation of your house stuff.

Set a Deadline for Unpacking

Your job doesn’t end with your stuff arriving at a new house. In fact, the most stressful part starts after you have moved in. With all the boxes lying around, it’s hard to unpack and arrange everything in their designated rooms. While packing, use labels for each box so that you know which box will go into which room. It will make it easier for you and the movers to arrange everything in the right place. Start with the bathroom and kitchen. Unpack a few boxes containing your essentials. Organize a house-warming party to set a deadline for finishing the unpacking on time.
