So, you’ve gotten a last minute directive for school, work or personal reasons and the end result is relocation. Even worse is the fact that you have to move in quite a hurry, which can cause even greater stress than the normal moving process incurs. Consider some advice for moving in a rush to ensure that you don’t get completely overwhelmed and stressed out, forgetting 50 different things in the process:
- Find a company that can do it all: A company that can ship your car, pack you up and move you is ideal in this situation, since you don’t have the time to shop around.
- Don’t try to make the process perfect: In a perfect world, if you have a year to relocate, you could make sure every single detail has been attended to and you could pack, store and move items in the most orderly fashion possible. However, if you are rushing, then your motto is to get it done. What does this mean? Possibly that your summer and winter clothes may need to get tossed in the same box or you don’t have time to separate your children’s toys before packing them.
- Tend to relocation details and let your moving company handle things here: Priority for you is finding a place to live, seeking out essential services in your new home and getting settled; allow your moving company to deal with things in your existing space and try to entrust them to get you ready to go. By trying to focus on too much at one time, you may find yourself not getting much done at all.
