Moving Soon? Don’t Make These Common Moving Day Mistakes
Moving day can be chaotic and stressful. When going at it alone, it can be easy to make mistakes and forget a few things. These mistakes, big or small, can make your move even more difficult and challenging than it needs to be.
If you’re planning on making a local or long distance move, consider these common moving day mistakes for a stress-free move from start to finish.
Mistake #1: You’re behind on packing or don’t have a packing schedule.
One of the most common mistakes new movers make is falling behind on their packing schedule. When you fall behind on packing, you start to scramble to get everything done on moving day.
To avoid frustration on moving day, create a scheduled timeline for packing and try to stick to it. As soon as you have an official moving date, start packing immediately. Gather all your moving supplies as soon as possible. If packing becomes overwhelming, call the professionals at My Tucson Movers. As your trusted Tucson moving experts, we guarantee you’ll find that our full-service packing solutions are far less stressful than doing it yourself.
Mistake #2: You didn’t come prepared.
Another common mistake is not packing an essentials box for the first few nights in a new home. Be sure to pack clothing for a few days, essential medicine, toiletries, and important tools that may be needed for your move. You’ll thank us later!
Mistake #3: You left small tasks for moving day.
It can be easy to leave small tasks for the morning of moving day. This is never a good idea. Moving day can be unpredictable. You can become sick. Your movers can arrive early. Something can break. Anything can happen! Ensure that you make time to get all of your pre-moving and packing tasks done before moving day arrives.
Mistake #4: You didn’t play it safe.
During your move, there is a lot of action going on, and it can be a little chaotic. From assisting your movers to packing and unpacking the moving truck, it can be easy to forget about safety and other precautions.
Play it safe on moving day and keep babies, small children, and pets out of harm’s way. It may be easier to find a trusted family member, friend, or babysitter to watch them. Lastly, do not block high traffic areas in your old or new home. Not only will blocking these areas set you back during your move, someone might trip and get hurt.
