According to research that has been done moving is one of the most stressful experiences in a persons life, even though you will almost never experience a stress- free move, your move can be made better and a bit easier with some help from others.
Get Help When Moving
When we refer to “get help” it doesn’t mean a friend or some family members, the more people trying to help, the more chaotic and stressful your move will be. Either hire a removal company or hire a truck that can be loaded more efficiently by two or three people. Moving needs to be well co-ordinated.
If you opt to hire movers the process will be a lot faster, less stressful and more efficient, professional movers will have your home packed up in a fraction of the time you would have taken. They are also a lot better at loading up the boxes and know how to fit everything perfectly.
It is better to stick with the bigger moving companies and not a couple of guys with a truck from an ad that you saw in the classifieds. Even though they could be a great bunch it is just safer to go with the more experienced, insured business and not just anyone, because it is all of your personal belongings that they will be moving.
Moving companies also usually offer a packing service which is a mixture of being a great help and a bit of a disaster. One big drawback is that you don’t end up getting rid of any old and un-necessary items because when you pack up yourselves you end up finding and getting rid of a lot of household items that are no longer needed or used.
For Far Moves it’s Best to Use Auto Transport Services
When you are considering removal companies you should also think about shipping your cars. Auto transport services will load your car up onto a truck and then ship it to where ever you are going to be relocating to, because then you and your family won’t have to go through a long drive which also becomes stressful.
If you choose to go with an auto transport service it is better to choose one that will deliver your car at your door steps and not one where you have to figure out fetching it etc.
Have a Holiday During the Move
If your new home is quite far away there will usually be a gap of a few days between you arriving and the removal truck arriving with your furniture, this is the perfect chance to spend a few nights in a hotel or self catering accommodation and have a nice break with the family.
