The idea of eliminating “stress” during a big move is a little impossible. But there are things you can do to keep things in order and keep those blood pressure levels down. The first step is always to let our Bay area moving pros handle the heavy lifting for you. We can take care of everything from packing to unpacking. But here’s a few more steps that you can control to help moving day flow a little more smoothly.
- Have a plan in place. You’ve heard that “failing to plan is planning to fail.” Well it’s true, and never more evident than moving time. Starting way ahead of schedule will give you a sense of ease. Plan out how long you think it might take to get everything ready for our movers, and then double it. Start that early and stay on top of your schedule, and enlist the help of friends along the way. The more work you can get done ahead of time, the smoother moving day will be.
- Plan out your meals and snacks. Nobody wants to stop what they’re doing in the middle of moving day to try and figure out what to eat for lunch. Plan to have either catered meals delivered from a pizza or sub shop, or use it as another opportunity to enlist the help of friends. Having a basket full of fruit, granola bars, and other snacks will help you not have to take an unnecessary time-out to find food.
- Take a break. Even when you use our competent and capable help, the stress of moving day can get to you. So many logistics and seemingly so little time. Take plenty of breaks, even for a just a few minutes. And remember to keep it light. Jokes and courtesy go a long way in keeping you feel energized, and everyone else around you.
