Moving is always stressful, but following these 5 golden rules will reduce the stress greatly by minimizing the risk of any problems on move day.

  1. Plan your move well in advance

Contact your local moving company up to one month before you hope to move, even if you don’t know exactly when the big day will be. They will tell you exactly what they offer and the areas you need to think about. This way you can plan your time and concentrate on the essential matters.

  1. If you can afford to have the packing done professionally, do so

Packing is not expensive and it may prevent any breakage or damages.

  1. Insurance

No matter how much care is taken with packing and handling, accidents do sometimes happen. So, make sure you receive a copy of your mover’s insurance.

  1. Avoid Fridays

If you can, avoid moving on a Fridays as this is always the busiest day. Some moving companies may even offer a discount to move on other weekdays.

  1. Get a written confirmation

Ensure you receive written confirmation from your chosen mover. Written confirmation is a legally binding contract and gives peace of mind as it prevents any move day problems such as your mover not turning up.

So, now you know the 5 golden rules of moving, all we can say is Good Luck!
