Anyone who has ever gone through a move knows that there is much more to it than packing up their belongings and taking them to a new house or apartment. One of the most important decisions you will make is the choice to hire professional movers who will not only provide you with superior moving services; but also give you guidance on how to make your move a successful one on an emotional level. Marrins’ Moving offers experienced professional moving services as well as a lot of valuable advice on how to make moving easier on you, your family and your pets.
Not surprisingly, the actual move of belongings is the primary concern of most people who have chosen to move into a new house or to a new location. Once everything has been packed, transported, and placed inside the new residence, they expect the worse to be over. Many people are surprised to find that the period immediately after the move can be emotionally draining. The planning that you do before the move can help alleviate the feeling of being overwhelmed after the move is complete.
Avoid Too Much New:
As exciting as it may be to move to a new house in a new location, suddenly finding yourself surrounded by things you aren’t familiar with can be a little too much. Some people, especially those that are moving long distances, choose to sell their existing furniture instead of paying the movers to haul it to the new location. Not only will replacing the items come with a price tag, it can also come with buyer’s remorse cause a negative emotional impact. Even if your existing furniture isn’t the right style for your new home, try to work at least one piece into each room to add a touch of familiarity to the new home.
Avoid the Frustration:
Another benefit to hiring professional movers is the method of packaging and moving items that they take. Knowing what to pack last and how to organize items that you will need once you arrive will make the rest of the move a lot less confusing. Otherwise, you will have lots of boxes filled with all types of items and no idea where those are that you need first. Marking boxes according to the room that the items in it will go into probably won’t be enough. Facing fifty boxes marked kitchen when you need your best skillet won’t help you get around to cooking your first meal in your new home any faster.
The Role of the Movers:
Your choice in a moving company will have an impact long after the move is over. Packing, driving a truck, carrying boxes and trying to keep all of the deadlines in mind associated with the move can be both physically and emotionally exhausting. Making a move that doesn’t include any major accidents or losses of important belongings can have a big impact on how you feel once the move has ended and you are left alone with the responsibility of turning your new house into a home.
