Moving into a new home or apartment can be extremely exciting. But it can also be extremely stressful.

1. Hire Professionals

While you may be tempted to do everything yourself, especially if you're moving from a smaller condo or apartment, hiring a professional moving company can remove a tremendous amount of stress from the entire equation. While there are a lot of moving companies in Calgary, it's important to do your research beforehand and choose a reputable one that provides insurance and has WCB coverage for its employees. You don't want to be on the hook should anything go awry. 

2. Declutter Beforehand

Moving to a new place provides the perfect opportunity to declutter your life and get rid of stuff you've been holding onto for far too long. Take stock of your possessions and ask yourself if they still spark joy. Ok, maybe you don't have to go full Marie Kondo on your clutter, but by getting rid of things before you move you'll make packing that much easier. 

3. Keep All Your Important Documents in a Moving Folder

Things like your marriage licence, birth certificates, and passports should be in a safe place that you know the whereabouts of at all times. Don't just throw them into a box with the rest of your stuff. By keeping your moving folder with these critical documents close by during your move, you'll have the peace of mind you need while your other objects make their voyage to your new residence. 

4. Use Specialists for Your Prized Possessions

Making sure your antique piano or expensive stereo equipment is well cared for during your move can help unburden yourself of unnecessary stress. Some movers in Calgary do a great job of hauling boxes from one place to another, but lack the expertise needed to ensure pianos and other important instruments or equipment is properly cared for while in transit. Precision Movers has successfully moved more than 31,000 pianos and organs over the past 28 years, and can be counted on to take care of your prized possessions. 


5. Don't Mix Different Rooms Together

When you're packing your boxes you want to make sure each one belongs to a distinct room or area in your new home. You also want to label each box clearly. This will help your movers, whether they're friends or professionals, know exactly where to put your boxes when they're unloading them. That way when you get into your new digs, unpacking will be as seamless and easy as possible.
