5 MOVING TIPS TO MEET YOUR DEADLINE
It’s human nature to underestimate how long it will take to complete a task – ask any project manager! Even if your home or office is neat and clutter-free, it may still take a while to pack and implement your move. Here are five tips to minimize stress and ensure a successful move.
1. Obtain moving quotes from three reputable movers as soon as possible.
This will ensure that you’ll be able to use your top choice. It’s crucial to find a moving company that’s well established, recommended and professional. Look for customer endorsements and membership of associations and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). All Jersey Moving & Storage has been serving the community since 1992 and earned an A+ rating from BBB and the “Circle of Excellence” designation from the New Jersey Warehousemen and Movers Association.
The best moving companies don’t just show up on moving day but are essential partners in the whole process.
2. Try to do some packing every day.
Even if you’re tired, you can sort through just one drawer or decide which books you’re taking with you. Psychologists have proven that the dread procrastinators experience before tackling a chore disappears once they start. They suggest setting a timer for 25 minutes. Besides the feeling of accomplishment you’ll experience upon completion, you can reward yourself with anything from chocolate to an hour of Netflix.
3. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
It may pay to hire a babysitter so your kids tugging at you when you’re packing. If your residence is on show, a cleaner can ensure it remains immaculate. If the packing is taking longer than you thought, consider contacting your moving company for assistance. In most cases, All Jersey Moving & Storage can pack up a whole home the day before the move. We can also pick up where you left off! To save you time, we can deliver moving supplies to your home so you can get started and then schedule professional packers to finish the task the day before the move.
Many customers feel it’s preferable for a professional mover to pack lamps, pictures and flat glass. In some cases, All Jersey Moving & Storage can even do this on moving day.
4. Delay or defer decisions.
Sometimes difficult choices have to be made that can hinder your progress or make you feel too rushed. Do you take Granny’s beautiful but large antique hutch or sell it? All Jersey Moving & Storage can pack it for you and store it in our own secure warehouse facility. With stable rental fees and no move-in administration charges, you won’t feel pressurized and can store it long term if need be.
5. Don’t panic if the moving date has to change.
Is your renovation taking longer than anticipated? Are you experiencing problems obtaining a mortgage, certificate of occupancy or title search?
