How to move a whole lot easier
Accept that you need a plan.
Unless you want to make an unorganized sprint to your new home or office, you will need a basic moving plan. Might as well accept it now. The good news is…it’s easy to start.
Create an honest budget.
Expenses can come quick and overspending is a real risk if you’re not prepared. Before you start bubble-wrapping breakables, make sure your moving budget is sorted.
Minimize tasks early.
As moving day nears, must-do tasks will increase. So, if you can take care of something sooner than later (hint: updating everyone with your new address) … do it before you’re too busy unpacking boxes.
Know what you have.
It’s easy to underestimate how much stuff you actually have, which can make last-minute packing kinda tricky. Avoid this by taking an honest look around — or better yet, take an inventory.
Let’s face it, a good packing job will smooth out your move…considerably. And there’s lots you can do to make that happen. Take advantage of AMJ’s packing tips and consider our expert packing services!
Do a reality check.
Be real with yourself as moving day approaches. Check your budget, your schedule. Assess if you need help. Doing this (at least 10 days prior to your move) will give you time to adjust.
Enjoy not rushing.
You’ve planned ahead, right?! You know what’s left to do, right?! So, enjoy crossing-off the final items on your AMJ moving checklist with lots of time to spare. Now, that’s a housewarming gift!
Take a tote bag.
Do yourself a favour and put together a personal bag to hold your essentials while you’re in transition. It’s a small thing that can go a long way. Nobody likes searching for their toothbrush.
