It is well known that, along with getting married, starting a new job and having a baby, or moving to a new house in Nevada is one of the most stressful things you can do. Like all of those other things, it is something that most of do at least once in our life, so over the years people have developed methods of coping with the stress.
Read on for a few tips for a (nearly) stress free move.
The hardest thing about moving from your old home to your new home is the thought of packing your life away into boxes. If you have lived in one place for a significant amount of time you might find the sheer amount of stuff you have a little daunting. As soon as you make the decision to move, you should think about de-cluttering. As there could be quite some time between the decision to move and actually moving, the process can be drawn out and broken into easy to digest chunks. Once you get round to packing up to move you will find the task much simpler.
If you can afford it, hire a moving firm. Simple as that. A good Nevada moving company will take everything from one home that you’ve packed, transport it to another home and even put everything where you want it. If your budget doesn’t stretch that far then the best idea is to try and get access to your new property before you have to give up the keys to your old property. This way you can move things gradually, over the course of a week perhaps. As this may be impossible, consider moving items into temporary storage, so you can collect and unpack at leisure once you’ve settled in a bit. Also, you can’t beat good old friends and family – rope them in to help, that’s what they’re for!
Unpacking can be almost as stressful as packing as you now need to find somewhere to put everything. Taking some time before you pack to plan where everything will go in the new house (not where it was in the old house) and marking the boxes as such will save you a lot of worry. Moving delicate items, such as ornaments, separately from heavy items will save you from any nasty surprises.
The Legal Stuff
We mentioned before that you should hire a good moving firm if you can afford it; this is slightly different – make hiring a good firm of property lawyers one of your top priorities. Conveyancing, stamp duty and all of the other legal tasks can be taken care of for you with minimum stress.
So while moving might not be totally stress free, by following these tips you can certainly be stressed less.
