3 Moving Tips From the Pros: How to De-Stress Your Moving Process

When you buy a new home in Vero Beach, the whole process is exciting – but if you’re like most people, you’re not too thrilled about the idea of packing up and moving. The good news is that you can make the whole process easier on yourself by following these three moving tips from the pros.

3 Moving Tips From the Pros: How to De-Stress Your Moving Process

You can minimize your stress about the entire moving process – and make it all easier on yourself – by following these three tips:

1. Downsize before you pack

2. Label everything

3. Put boxes in the right places as soon as you arrive

Here’s a closer look at each.

Moving Tip #1: Downsize Before You Pack

The less you have to move, the better – so now’s a great time to go through your belongings and look for things that you haven’t used in the past six months to a year. You can separate items to donate, throw out or pack away based on whether you’ll really use them (and whether someone else could use them more).

The great news is that if you choose to donate your items, there are several noteworthy organizations right in Vero Beach (and many nearby) that would love to have your gently used clothing, kitchen items, furniture and kids’ toys.

Moving Tip #2: Label Everything

As you box up your belongings, keep meticulous lists of what’s inside each container. You can write directly on the box or use a system that involves numbering boxes and keeping lists to coordinate – whatever works best for you. By doing this, you’ll be able to locate must-have items as soon as you arrive in your new home.

Pro Tip: Use a color-coded or written system to note where each box belongs in your new home, too.

Moving Tip #3: Put Boxes in the Right Places as Soon as You Arrive

Don’t bring boxes in and dump them wherever you feel like leaving them – that only creates more work for you. Instead, make sure you check the labels on the boxes and put each box in the appropriate room. That way, you don’t have to lug things around just to get your belongings in the right general area.
