Top 5 Tips for Making Your Move as Painless as Possible

It’s no secret that moving home can be incredibly stressful and with so many things to consider out prior to moving out, the entire experience is a blur for many.

Due to this, regardless of whether you’re moving to the UAE or to an entirely new country, it’s important that you avoid making last-minute decisions and arrangements.

Here at Santa Fe Relocation, we’re taking a look at the top moving tricks for a fast, painless move.

Pack an overnight bag

The first way to experience a painless move is to pack an overnight bag containing all the essentials you will need when moving cross country. This is because you’re likely to be too tired to unpack your belongings when you arrive, and so by ensuring you can access your essentials, including a change of clothes, you won’t have to spend time scrambling around to find them. In a similar way, this is a great way to transport a laptop or any other valuable goods you’re taking with you which could run the risk of getting damaged during transit.

Label your boxes

Whilst packing an overnight bag is great to help you settle into your new home on the first night, when it comes to day two of your move, you’re going to want to unpack everything by room. Due to this, it’s vital that you label what’s in your boxes, as well as what room they’ll be going into. By unpacking by room, the entire unpacking process will feel much more manageable, and you’ll feel as though you’re actually making progress, rather than hopping between rooms stashing your items away.

Take a photo of how your electronics are connected

Unless your highly experienced in the tech department, you may struggle to reconnect your electronics. In order to avoid plugging it in wrong take a photo of how your electronics are connected to remind you how and where all the wires go. Not only will this help save you valuable time, but by taking a photo how your electronics are connected, you can avoid the frustration of your devices not working first time round, reducing the stress you’re already experiencing.

Change your address in advance

Before you move, change your address at least two weeks in advance. Whilst this might seem like a no-brainer for essentials such as utilities and cable, it’s just as important to not forget the small stuff, including your mail. By changing these important things in advance, when moving day comes, you can be confident that you will not experience any issues.

4 Things to Consider When Choosing a Reliable Removal Company

Hire a sitter

For same-city moves, hiring someone to care for your children and pets whilst you get settled in is the best option. After all, the last thing you want to be worrying about is losing track of your children or furry friends while transporting your belongings from A to B during what already is an incredibly stressful day.

Many question whether a painless move is possible, but it is. By taking the aforementioned points into consideration, you can rest assured that you’ll avoid all those last-minute catastrophes that have been running through your head since the day you decided to move cross country.
