Common Moving Mistakes to Avoid

May 21st, 2020

Some people move a lot, but if you’re a first-timer, you may need some tips and tricks. RARE Moving wants to make your move go as smoothly as it can.

Moving on Your Own When You Need Extra Help

Even though it isn’t cheap, having a moving team to help you out is very worth it. Doing a move on your own even with friends and family, it can take a lot more time and energy than hiring movers. If you have items of significant value, it’s also going to be way riskier. The can be many situations where moving on your own works out, it’s a mistake to immediately ignore the idea of hiring movers because you don’t want to spend the money or you think it’s easy on your own. Think about what you have to move. If you believe you can do it yourself, great. But if you have any doubts, it’s time to call in the professionals.

Giving Yourself too Much Time To Pack

If you give yourself too much time to pack, chances are you are going to wait til the last minute to even start. Make a timeline of when you need to pack certain rooms and belongings. That way you’ll stay on track. It will be stressful realizing you haven’t started and you move in a week. You need to plan ahead and organize yourself. Set a deadline to have everything done, maybe a week before the actual moving day. That way you’ll have more time for cleaning and other necessities before leaving your current space.

You don’t get rid of unnecessary items

When you begin to pack for your move, you are going to run into some items that you don’t need or want anymore. Rather than packing them up promising yourself you will donate things after your move, get rid of them now. This will save you effort and space. Packing up these items is unnecessary. Moving is the absolute perfect time for a yard sale or adding to the donation bin near you. Save time once you get to your new place by getting rid of these items now. Someone else may be in more need for them than you. If you don’t want to donate or sell, give them to someone close to you who you know will take good care of your old belongings.
