For whatever reason, you’re being rushed to leave the house that you have called home for years and years. It could be because the home was sold at the very last minute to another buyer than originally agreed, it could be because the new home you’ve bought is being sold at a short notice instead. Regardless of the effect, you are now in a short window whereby you can move out of your home. Moving family homes is challenging at the best of times, and makes you want to rip your hair out at the worst. So when time is tight, all of these things get amplified. Panic and stress are going to become your most frequent personality traits during this hectic time. It’s natural to also feel as if you won’t be moving correctly, that you’ll leave something behind and just have to live with it. Thankfully that’s not true at all because even when the moving mayhem syndrome descends on you, there are still winning strategies to make the move right.
Larger than intended
If you’re not moving that far, then chances are that you will hire a van or truck. Some medium sized vehicles can be driven with a simple car license so hiring out your needs is quite a good idea. However instead of a smaller vehicle that you might have planned, hire out a slightly larger vehicle instead. This is because when moving normally and having time on your side, you would have taken your time to play loading tetris where you carefully load up the van or truck. Now though, you don’t have time to carefully place your boxes and items in a neat tight fashion. The larger space will give you room to just put things in there any which way and still be able to fit all the things you need.
Seen it, done it
In moments where time is incredibly tight, you need professional helping hands. Rather than call over a friend or a family member, call someone who knows how to actually make short and light work of moving in general. Better yet call a moving company with almost 100 years of experience in this profession. They not only have their own heavy duty vehicles, but they know how to wrap and pack items quickly, and they do all the loading themselves. You can help out if you want to, but all you need to do is give a few orders on how you would like things to be packed and they will take care of the rest. They assign multiple people to each move, so there will be up to two two-man teams that are packing, loading and delivering everything to your new home.
Take a day off
You don’t have time on your side fine, then take a day off. No, not from moving but from your work. If all else fails, you need to book an emergency day off from work and dedicate the whole day to moving.
Moving day is kind of like when it’s the day you’re going on holiday. It’s full of stress, panic and anxiety. You know you are moving your precious belongings a long way so you have to make sure you’re not leaving anything you need behind.
