5 Crucial Moving Tips to Minimize Stress
Whether you are handling a last minute move or you simply want to keep a tight budget, you
need to know which of your belongings are your most crucial and essential possessions that
you absolutely need to move. In order to help you with your move, here are 5 moving tips you
need to know in order to make your move a success.
No matter how you want to move, you will need a plan. Doesn’t matter how you do it so long as
you plan it all out and know exactly what you need to do. One of the first things you’ll need for
your plan is a moving budget. Once you have your budget, you’ll know your options and you’ll
also be able to easily identify where you can save some money.
For example, you can try borrowing a van or truck from a friend to save some money, just make
sure you ask them ahead of time to see if they’re willing and available on that date. Be sure to
make it up to them later on.
Your plan must have a timeline and finalized move out date so you know when to give notice to
your landlord about your moving out. Remember: most lease contracts state that you need to
give a minimum of 4 weeks notice before moving out.
Regardless of how many things you need to move, you’ll need some means of getting all your
belongings from point A to point B. Your decision should be determined by the distance of your
new home, how many things you need to move, and the amount of time you have left.
If it isn’t too far, you could consider moving all your things with your car in multiple trips. The
further away you’re moving and the more you need to move, the likelier you are to hire New
Brunswick movers to take care of it for you.
You might not need to spend a lot of money on packing supplies as you might think. To really
save some money, you can go to local groceries or wine stores and ask them for their old
boxes. Just make sure to give them enough time to prepare them for you. There are lots of
different tips and tricks when it comes to packing such as using linens and beddings for filling
up gaps. Not only does this maximize your boxes, it also doubles as padding and protects your
● Getting help
If you need help, ask for it. The more people you have helping you, the easier and faster your
move will be. If you have children, ask some of your friends or family members to watch them
for you while you take care of your move. If you are moving far away, people close to you tend
to want to help you and spend time with you more.
Be sure you have enough time to finish everything you need to do. Give yourself some buffer as
well just in case your schedule doesn’t go as planned. Not having everything packed for moving
day is a nightmare and adds a lot of extra costs especially if you hired New Brunswick movers
to come at an agreed date. Not to mention that last-minute packing is very stressful and likely to
lead to damaged and missing belongings.
