While Direct Home Connect can move all of your utilities and home services, the process of relocating your entire life to a new neighborhood, city or state can be very stressful. We work with new homeowners every day, and we know what you're going through. Here are some helpful tips ad tricks that may help you deal with the stresses of moving!
If you look at moving as a super stressful and negative experience, it’s more likely it will be. But if you look at it through a positive lens, it can be incredibly productive and cathartic. Moving is an opportunity to assess what’s important in your life and purge old, unnecessary stuff. It’s a chance to declutter and start fresh in a new home. Moving is stressful but it doesn’t have to cue a total breakdown. When you change your mindset, you can transform the entire experience.
NEW TOWN RESEARCH
One of the best ways to ease the transition to a new town is to do your research ahead of time. Find cool shops and restaurants to check out. Look for a gym or running trails close to your new home. Do you usually grab a coffee on your way to work? Check if there’s a cafe on your new commute.The moving experience will be a lot less stressful if you can seamlessly implement some of your old routines. Do your groundwork before you move so you’ll already feel familiar when you arrive in town.
Moving takes a lot of time and energy, so organization will be your best tool for avoiding stress. Gather the right supplies early on so you have plenty of time to pack. Make a list of everything you’re taking with you and get rid of everything else. Categorize everything and label boxes accordingly. If you’re hiring a van or professional movers, schedule them well in advance of moving day.And remember: moving to a new home isn’t just about literally moving your stuff. There are a ton of other little things you need to take care of: like changing your address, canceling subscriptions and services, and cleaning your home in time for its new owners. Staying organized and thinking ahead will ensure your move goes off without a hitch.
PROFESSIONAL MOVING PRODUCTS & SERVICES
The last thing you want to worry about when moving is the safety of your possessions. Even in simple moves, furniture and boxes often get damaged — the risk is even higher for long-distance moves.To avoid damage, take extra care both before and during the move. Use proper supplies (like sturdy boxes, moving blankets and bubble wrap) to protect your possessions. On moving day, be sure to have an able-bodied crew, whether it’s your family and friends or a professional team like You Move Me.
GOODBYES & HELLOS
This will be one of the hardest parts of the moving process, but it’s also one of the most important. Saying goodbye is crucial for getting closure. It’s also an opportunity to make concrete plans to see your friends and family in the future.Once you’ve arrived in your new town, you’ll want to take time to introduce yourself to your neighbors and colleagues. Find out if there are any clubs you can join in the community or at work. The more social you get right off the bat, the faster you’ll integrate into your new community and feel more at home.
When you arrive at your new home, it’ll be a mess of boxes, furniture, and emotions. It will take time to reorganize and get comfortable in an unfamiliar place, but don’t put off unpacking! Moving is stressful because it’s disruptive to your regular routine. The sooner you unpack and get settled — in your new home, job, and community — the sooner you’ll feel grounded and ready to start your next chapter.
