A new home in a new place is really something to look forward to, but the thought of moving can also leave you feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Well, it doesn't have to be that way because if you take the time to plan your move well and organize everything, you will have a smooth move.
First thing that you have to consider is whether to hire professional movers or do the moving yourself. If you will be the one to do it, make sure you have enough help, materials (boxes, old newspapers, packing tapes etc.), and trucks to load up your stuff, and that you label each boxes properly. If you are going to hire help, research on the companies first and compare prices. Once you decided on a company, schedule them as early as possible to avoid any hassles.
As much as possible, bring only the stuff that are really important and could still be of use to you. Some things lose their value and would only add up to your moving cost. Throw away stuff that are of no value and donate items that can be useful to others. It will also be a great idea to sort out all your things and do a garage sale months or weeks before you move; the sales you can generate here can be used to pay the moving company.
