Relocating locally or across the country often comes with worries and stress. Choosing the right moving method and planning ahead can help reduce all those anxieties. One of the moving methods that shows an increase in popularity is the pod or storage unit. This type of unit is convenient for many movers because of the flexibility it provides. The other part of reducing stress is the use of a simple tool such as mover’s check off sheet.
Obtaining a mover’s check off sheet is easy by searching for moving companies that allow you download a free form to use as you prepare for your move. There are check off sheets that are very detailed, while others are not. Making your own is also an option. Anyone using Microsoft word can download one from the official Microsoft office website. Regardless if you make your own, or download one, you can customize it to work best for you. The idea is to have a timeline for each step of the move. As you complete each step, you mark it off the list. When rushing around preparing for a move, it is very easy to forget to complete a step unless it is on your check off sheet.
A moving storage unit has many advantages. You can easily find services online that have pods or moving units. Once you make your arrangements with the moving service, they bring the storage unit to your home on the date you scheduled for it to arrive. You can pack your belongings, and load the unit at your leisure. Just follow your timeline and before you know it, you will have everything boxed, loaded and ready to move. Many of these moving services have the right type of moving boxes that you can order. This saves a lot of time from looking for companies that sell the right size and type of box you need. Once you have everything loaded into the moving storage container, you call the moving service so that they can pick the unit up and deliver it into storage, or to your new home.
When you are moving because of a career change, to attend a new school or to be near family, it should be a time of great joy. Preparing for your move makes it easier to enjoy the actual move and have fun. Looking forward to a new beginning should be a rewarding experience without any moving anxieties.
