Moving house is always stressful, whether you’re moving internationally or simply down the road. There’s a lot to get done and a lot of planning involved. When you’re pressed for time or have to relocate on short notice, moving quickly is your top priority.

However, it’s also important to try and minimize the chaos and make the process as simple and enjoyable for you and your family as possible. While there’s surely no escaping stress altogether, here are a few ways you can make this process simpler and easier to manage. 

Ship Your Car

If you’re travelling quite a distance and trying to coordinate a 3-day long road trip, cut your losses and book a flight. Driving long distances like this will cost you more on gas and road trip snacks, put major miles and wear and tear on your vehicle and take up too much of your time and energy. 

Rather opt to have your car shipped to your new home, safe and sound without any extra effort. Look online for car shipping company reviews to make sure you’re getting the best service for the best price, though. 

Hire Professionals

There are always pros and cons to anything – including hiring professionals to help you with your move. While you might be able to save a few bucks by doing it all yourself, you’re also heaping loads of pressure onto your own shoulders (and your poor friends who you’ve roped in to help).

With a job, a family and other responsibilities, taking on a whole move on your own can be extremely taxing and physically demanding. If you can afford to hire movers, you should start by getting a moving quote.

Start Early

Get started as early as you can. Even if you’re just making plans and creating a moving checklist of things you need to do, the sooner you start, the smoother things will go as the weeks go by.

Getting the ball rolling weeks in advance will allow you to schedule everything easily and you might even snag a few discounts for booking ahead. You’ll be able to start packing early too – just a few boxes of things that aren’t used often such as books or winter coats. The more you get done early on (and at a leisurely pace) the less panic you’ll face in the week leading up to the move. 

Ask For Help

Aside from hiring professionals, don’t be afraid to ask for some help in whichever way you need it. Whether you need to hire a cleaning service or have to ask a close friend to have you over for dinner one night because your entire kitchen is packed up in boxes, there are probably people in your life who are more than willing to lend a hand. 

Moving is a big and taxing job, which most of us have experienced before. This means that the people around you will probably understand what you’re going through and be there to assist in whichever way you need it.
