The laundry list of things to do before a move can certainly seem daunting. At times, it may seem as though you're moving nowhere against a strong current.

5 Easy Ways You Can Prepare for Your Upcoming Move

Nobody likes moving. If someone says they do, they're lying. Perhaps they've confused the end result with the act itself. Either way, moving to a new place can be a challenging ordeal. Packing up all your stuff, updating billing information, coordinating schedules with your professional movers, and unpacking everything once the move has been completed are all time-consuming affairs. That's why our best piece of advice is to start early. Giving yourself enough time will reduce your stress and allow you to tackle any unexpected problems right away. It will also allow you to relax for a bit once you've accomplished everything. 

Now without further ado, here are the five easiest ways you can prepare for your imminent move.

1. Get a binder and make a moving folder: Failing to prepare is planning to fail. That's why the first thing you need to do is go out and grab a binder that will serve as your moving folder/bible. This is where you will keep all your receipts and paperwork related to your move, along with your ultimate moving checklist (more on that later) as well as all your essential documents such as passports and financial agreements pertaining to your new home. 

2. Take stock of everything you own: Knowing what you need to move is the next step. Take inventory of everything you own and write it down on a list that you have backed up in case the original goes missing. Doing this will allow you to get an accurate estimate from the Calgary movers you're considering hiring for the job. It will also help when shopping for insurance.

3. Use our ultimate moving checklist: We've put together the ultimate moving checklist to help keep you organized and on track for your upcoming relocation. No matter how big your move is, our checklist will guide you through every week of planning with helpful tips to make things less stressful and more organized. We recommend getting ready for your move about eight weeks ahead of the big day, which is where our checklist begins.

4. Know how much you can spend on your move: Putting in place a moving budget is a critically important part of the process. Make sure you include all the costs associated with your move as well as what you can afford to spend once the move is complete. This would include things like setting up your cable and internet or repairing any items that may have been damaged during the move. 

5. Don't forget about self-care: This part of the moving process often gets overlooked. But make sure you take some time for yourself amid all the planning. Upheaval and unexpected challenges are inevitable during this phase of your life. Setting aside a chunk of time to relax and rejuvenate yourself will give you the energy to forge ahead and solve any problems that arise. Whatever self-care looks like to you, be sure to do it.

Start Early

We can't stress enough how important it is to give yourself plenty of time to do everything that needs to be done before moving. By breaking your relocation up into manageable chunks, the prospect and process of moving become much easier. Having enough time to adapt and respond to any unexpected problems that may arise is also crucial. Just remember to take things one step at a time and visualize yourself in the new home you'll soon be living in. It will make all your hard work and preparation that much easier.

Q: Can you negotiate with movers?

After selecting a highly reputable moving company in Calgary to help with your relocation, it is possible to negotiate with them so you can get the best deal possible. Your bargaining power will depend on several things, most importantly how much stuff you have to relocate. 

Q: What will movers not take?

Movers can pretty much take anything of yours that you wish to relocate. That being said, they often are quite hesitant to move jewelry, medical records, keys, and financial and personal documents. Check with your mover before hiring them to see what they won't move of yours so you can plan accordingly.

Q: Do movers disassemble beds?

Yes, movers can disassemble beds, though there may be an additional charge for doing so. Be sure to check with your moving company to see if there are any additional charges for their services before proceeding to hire them, so there aren't any surprises when your final bill comes.
