Moving is one of those things that can be a LOT to deal with. You have to pack, turn on and off utilities, buy moving trucks, and then if you are moving long-distance? SHEESH! It adds an entirely new list of to-do’s that can be overwhelming!
Yes, moving is normally a lot but it doesn’t actually have to be. There are ways to be stress-free with a smooth move that is actually a lot simpler than you may have originally thought.
Here are five tips on how you can accomplish this:
Learn About the Commute Beforehand
Before moving to the area, you want to get to know how you’re going to be most conveniently get around. For example, in most areas in New Jersey a car might be more convenient, while in New York it’s really not necessary to even have a car (and also is extremely inconvenient). If you don’t drive, learn the transit systems and schedules. Figure out where some basic things you know you’ll need is so that you aren’t spending the first few weeks of your move lost and confused.
Start Decluttering Early
One of the most STRESSFUL parts of moving is all of the packing and organizing our stuff! So, as soon as you know you’re moving, start the process of decluttering! Get rid of the clothes you don’t wear, rusted pots and pans you don’t use, random items that you have but serve no purpose. Doing this will not only give you less to pack, but you’ll also find yourself organizing some of the things you DO want to keep which will make the process early!

Another MAJOR way to avoid stress is to let the experts do the big stuff for you! Did you know there were services that can take some of the most time consuming and frustrating part of moving right off your hands?!

If you want to reduce stress when you move to New York from New Jersey, this is the place you want to get into!
Breakdown Tasks and Give Yourself Deadlines
With most things, the process is smoother if you don’t wait until the last minute to get started! The truth is, it never SEEMS like moving is a lot until you’re in the midst of doing it. There is actually TONS of to do’s that you’ll need to tackle. Look at what needs to be done for your move to happen smoothly and break up those tasks so that by the time you are moving, all that is left to do… is MOVE!
