6 Simple Tips to Make Your Next Move as Stress-Free as Possible

If you're moving into your dream home soon you're undoubtedly excited about finally being in the perfect space for you and your family. But most people would gladly skip past the one part of the process that can cause the most dread: moving all their belongings from their current place to the new one. With a few simple tips though, moving doesn't have to be as difficult or stressful as it's often made out to be. 

Here are the top six simple tips from our Calgary moving company:

1. Make a designated packing spot in your current place

Setting aside one specific place for all your packing materials will help make the process seem more organized and controlled. Have all your boxes, tape, labels, markers, and lists in this spot and don't move them from their designated area.

2. Create a comprehensive packing list

A little organization now will go a long way down the road. Make sure you write down everything that's going into each box and use a numbering system to easily identify the contents of your packed boxes. If you're using a physical list, just be sure to back it up on your computer so you have something to fall back on if the physical one gets lost or misplaced.

3. Don't skimp on the packing supplies

If you're moving the entire contents of a house, you're going to need a lot of moving supplies. Most likely more than you initially think. Stock up on boxes and other packing materials such as tape and styrofoam peanuts and be sure to have some extra boxes available come moving day for those last-minute items.

Pro tip: Put your suitcases to good use! Load them up with as many clothes or other items as you can and you'll save yourself a few dollars on boxes.


4. Use a colour-coded system

Each room in the house you're moving to should be given a specific colour, like orange for your kitchen and blue for your master bedroom. Then put corresponding stickers on each box based on where it needs to go. When you get possession of your new place, put coloured stickers in each room so your professional movers know where each box goes come moving day.

5. Start early

You don't want to be behind the gun when it comes to packing or moving. That's how things get lost or forgotten about. If you don't need it for everyday life, pack it up well in advance of your scheduled move. This will also give you some added time to figure out how you want to transport your important documents, prized possessions, or valuable items.

6. Hire professional movers

Using local, professional movers will make your life a lot less stressful. You won't have to worry about renting a moving van or getting your friends to pitch in. Your items will also be insured should anything happen to them en route to your new place or should they go missing. Just make sure you've followed tip two, which will save you a lot of time and hassle if you need to go through insurance.
