If you have always found the moving experience highly stressful, then you will find these tips helpful to reduce the stress and enjoy the excitement that comes with a new beginning.

  1. Start early and get organized.  This will mean getting started weeks ahead of the move.  Create your to do list and then divide it into weeks making sure that you tick off every completed task as you go.  It is a good idea to work with 12 weeks to get everything ready for the move.
  2. Find a moving company.  The company you select is very important.  If you go with a reputable company such as 1300 on the move removals Brisbane, chances of a smooth transition are high.  You want to work with people who have experience in this area, attentive to your needs and willing to tailor the move the budget you are working with.
  3. De-clutter.  This is something you should begin doing as soon as you start planning a move.  By simply removing clutter you will begin to feel a lot more organized.  Additionally, this means that when packing, you will only pack what you need.  It doesn’t help to pack a bunch of stuff that you will then have to toss out when you get to your new residence or office.
  4. Enlist help.  Even though you probably could make a lot of headway all by yourself, it may be a good idea to have friends and family over to help when they can come.  They can help you with sorting through your property, packing or even moving.  If you are feeling overwhelmed by it all, call for help.
  5. Keep your energy up.  This means two things: Eat Right and Sleep.  It is common knowledge that sleep deprivation and hunger can cause one to be irritable.  Make sure you are eating a balanced diet not just getting by on caffeine and sugar.  Also ensure that you get a full night’s rest even as you pack and get ready to move.
  6. Take things easy.  Even after meticulously laying down your moving plans and implementing them just like you planned, it is possible for something to go wrong.  Take it easy during such times and simply go with the flow.  Stay flexible so that you can deal with whatever problems arise.  Make sure that you have left some wiggle room in your timeline for such things.
  7. Create a Backup Plan.  Consider your plan and take note of major points or issues that could arise to negatively affect the move, then create a backup plan for them. Consider such things as a cancelation from your moving company, or rental agency.  Ensure that you have an alternative should something go wrong.

Finally, take the time to rest and maybe even get pampered at the spa before you leave.  Ensure that you also say your goodbyes.  You may choose to have an all-out party, invite friends for dinner, or simply have your girls over for a movie. This allows your last memories of the old place to be good ones.
