Even if you and your family have moved many times, you probably still stress every time you think about packing up your home.

We have put together some steps you can take to make your move easier.

Get in the right mind set: Whether you wanted the move or not, grief often accompanies a move. Don’t be afraid to acknowledge and experience your feelings. It will help you move to a happier emotional place faster than if you ignore them.
Plan Ahead: Doing things at the last minute is always stressful, but when you have to move an entire household full of things, you don’t want to be doing this at the last minute. Start planning as far in advance as you can. Being prepared and having a plan will eliminate stress. Our moving planner will help you know what needs to be done week by week.
Use a Support System: You will no doubt feel overwhelmed with all the things that need to be done before, during, and after the move. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. That’s what friends and family are for.

Pack without Emotion: We all tend to get sentimental about our belongings, but do you really need your old notebooks from college? Packing will go a lot quicker if you don’t have any sentimental attachment to the items. Figure out what items you really need and pitch the rest.
Research New Area: People are always the most comfortable when they feel prepared, so do your research. For example; find the schools, the malls, the restaurants. See what events regularly happen in the area. Get a feel for where you will be setting your roots down.
