Moving to a new state is a big decision. Rather you’re looking for a fresh start or you’re moving for a job, the stress of the move can quickly overwhelm whatever the positives may be. Take a step back and remind yourself that it’ll all work out, it’s just going to take a little extra work to make moving go smoothly. Follow these simple tips to make your move more manageable and get back to focusing on the positives!
Make a List
At the beginning stages of planning your move, make a list. This list should include every detail and task that needs to be completed before, during, and after your move. You can organize the list by priority of the task or by the timeline. Having this master list serves two purposes – first, it will obviously keep you organized. Second, it gives you somewhere to go back and check off tasks as you complete them leading up to the big day. Keeping track of everything you’ve done will make the remaining items on the list seem achievable and within your reach.
Declutter Your Life
Moving states is a great time to declutter things you don’t need. The less you have to take with you, the easier the move will be. Go through everything you possibly can and if something doesn’t serve a purpose or hold sentimental value that can’t be replaced, get rid of it. You can donate to a nearby thrift store and even try to sell some higher-ticket items to help cover your moving costs.
Change Your Address
You’ll want to make sure you file a change of address and get your utilities turned on at the new location prior to moving day. Nothing would suck more than arriving at your new home to discover there’s no electricity! These tasks will be apart of your checklist, but they should definitely hold a high priority level because they are essential.
Hire Professional Movers
Trying to move from one state to another by yourself sounds like a nightmare and that’s because it would be! Professional international moving services exist for a reason – take advantage of it. Paying professional movers means you’ll have help packing, loading, unloading, and you won’t have to worry about your belongings being damaged like you would if you did it yourself. Professional movers are insured to cover potential damages and they’re highly experienced at moving in general, so the risk of damaged or lost items is low.
