Did you know that stress experts rank moving as one of life’s most challenging events? Of course, they did that research before we got started with this whole global pandemic thing, but we’re still pretty sure moving can make you feel tense and overwhelmed.
Here’s some tips to help you cut the stress level when planning your small move.
First: choose your Boston moving company early & book your moving dates. Let’s be real. The world’s in flux right now, and while lots of people are staying home, lots and lots of people are moving. College students are going back home to be near their families, immune compromised individuals are moving to less densely populated areas, and other similar situations are still happening. You want to be sure you’ll have the moving truck and crew you need when you want them.

Second: use your moving dates to create a schedule to get everything done. The typical small move includes everything you can fit into a dorm room – a few pieces of furniture and personal possessions. Our professional team can pack a small move in just about 3 hours: we recommend giving yourself up to 3 days to get everything done right. Make sure your schedule includes essentials like doing laundry – no one likes unpacking dirty clothes! – and getting moving boxes.
Third: don’t be afraid to downsize. While you may not be able to donate items to some non-profit organizations the way you normally would, it’s still a good idea to go through your things and consider if you still really want or need them before you pack them. Go ahead and toss the things no one can use – and if you can, arrange no-contact pick ups for the stuff you’re willing to give away. The easiest way to save money on your move is to have less stuff to move!
