When it comes to moving, there are a lot of moving pieces you’ll need to manage. With the right information, you can make sure that your move goes as smoothly as possible. We’re sharing some of our top Do’s and Don’ts to help you pull off a stress-free move! Let’s get started. 

Moving is Rarely Stress Free

One of the most important things to remember is that moving is rarely stress free. No matter how well you plan, there are always going to be some bumps in the road. The key is to not let these bumps get in the way of your move. Stay positive and keep moving forward!

Your Moving “Do’s”

Get Organized

An Important thing to do when you are moving is to get organized. This means making a list of everything that you need to do and when you need to do it. This will help you stay on track and make sure that nothing gets forgotten.

Be Diligent About Labeling

When you are packing up your belongings, be sure to label each box. This will help you when you are unpacking at your new home. You will know which boxes go in which room and you won’t have to waste time searching for things.

Pack an Essentials Bag

When you are packing for your move, be sure to pack an essentials bag. This bag should include things like toiletries, a change of clothes, and any medications that you might need. Having this bag will make the first few days at your new home much easier.

Hire Professionals 

Whether you are moving long or short distances and have a lot of heavy furniture, it is worth hiring professionals to help you. They will be able to handle the heavy lifting and make sure that everything gets where it needs to go.

Your Moving “Don’ts”


One of the worst things you can do when moving is to procrastinate. This will only make the process more stressful and increase the chances of something going wrong.

Wait Until the Last Minute to Pack

Another thing you should avoid is waiting until the last minute to pack. This will make it more likely that you will forget something or not have enough time to properly pack your belongings.

Try to do Everything Yourself

Moving is a lot of work and it is not realistic to try to do everything yourself. If you need help, don’t be afraid to ask for it. There is no shame in admitting that you need a little assistance.

Overstuff Your Boxes

When you are packing, be sure to not overstuff your boxes. This will make them more difficult to move and could cause them to break.

Stay up all Night the Night Before

It is tempting to stay up all night the night before your move. But this will only make you more tired and less likely to be able to handle everything that needs to be done.
