Whether your move is just down the street or across the globe, it can be quite the undertaking for anyone. When moving to a new place, it’s likely that you won’t want to be stressing about plans and you’ll want to have plenty of time to enjoy this exciting milestone. The easiest way to prevent moving day stress is to hire a reputable moving company that has years of experience and credible reviews. Hiring movers can lift a huge weight off your shoulders, but you’ll still have to do some planning and preparation.


Here are a few tips to help you eliminate extra stress on moving day.

Packing Central

Create a spot for your packing list, labels, markers, tape, etc.

Make a Packing List

Write everything down! Before you pack anything, create a system. Number EVERY box you pack and write the contents on your list.

Packing Supplies

You’ll need lots of boxes and packing materials – more than you think. Set aside about 10 boxes for last minute moving day items. Tall wardrobe boxes are perfect for bulky, lightweight items like comforters, pillows, and clothes that need to remain hanging.

Color Code

Designate a color for each room in your new home and put colored stickers on each box. In your new home, put a matching sticker on the door to each room so movers know where to put things.

Keep Things Together

Keep light bulbs with lamps, picture hooks with pictures, etc.

Pack Early

Save time by packing everything you can ahead of time. If it’s not essential to daily living, pack it!

Cleaning Kit

Put together a kit of basic cleaning supplies for moving day clean up jobs.

Use Luggage

Save boxes by packing items in luggage and duffle bags.

Keep Valuables Safe

Keep valuable possessions like jewelry and family heirlooms with you. Check your homeowner’s insurance to see how they’re covered during the move. Keep important papers and phone numbers with you.


Remember, planning ahead is the key to maintaining your sanity and having a stress-free move!
