If you’ve planned to move to another home or another city, it’s very likely that you’ve already started to feel the pressure mounting. It doesn’t matter where you’re moving, the idea of packing everything, uprooting your life, and making all the necessary arrangements is overwhelming.

Relocating takes time, money, and a lot of energy. You can spend an entire month just planning your move and still make costly mistakes. These blunders aren’t just due to a lack of time or misjudgment, they’re usually caused by a lack of experience.

Here are the common moving mistakes people make and how you can prevent them:

Planning a move without a checklist

The key to a well-organized and seamless move is to plan it down to a T. You need to develop a comprehensive plan to tackle every stage of the moving process. From getting the right packing supplies to hiring a reliable moving company in Issaquah, WA, a lot goes into relocating.

One of the primary reasons why people are overwhelmed at the thought of moving is because they don’t have a plan on paper. They’re always wondering if they’ve missed an important step or gotten the dates wrong. Create a moving checklist and noting down the things that need to be ticked off in order of importance can be a life-saver!

Don’t keep putting it off

Packing is the most time-consuming thing about moving. Our clients often leave packing till the last moment and end up feeling stressed and drained out from all the last-minute frantic packing.

You need to allow yourself enough time to organize the packing materials, label, and pack fragile items carefully. If you don’t allocate time to this task, your valuables and fragile items may suffer from damage.

You can never be too early with packing. Begin packing all the things you won’t use around 2 months in advance. As your moving date inches closer, start packing your essentials.

Hoarding items

Hoarding belongings that are no longer required.

The more you have to pack, the more complicated the move is going to be. When you’ve got too many things to sift through, the chances of losing items is higher. Before start packing, get rid of the things that are no longer useful to you. Share these items with your family or give them away to charity.
