How to Move Without Stress
Moving is a stressful time for anyone. It’s hard to know what to do and how you’re going to get everything done in time, so it can be tempting to just put up your hands and say “I quit.” But even if you don’t have all the answers, there are plenty of ways that you can take some of the stress out of moving. Kontorsflytt Stockholm has some tips for you!
How not to overpack your car: Leave some space in your car to fit all of the items you’ll need on both sides. Pack heavier clothes and shoes towards the bottom, with lighter clothing at the top so they don’t weigh down your belongings. Place breakables like dishes near the back seat or middle floorboard where they can be better protected from being broken by a sudden stop or turn while driving. If you’re packing pots and pans, put them inside their original box for added protection against damage during transport.
How not to overload yourself: Don’t pack more than 25 pounds per person when moving. This includes pets! Packing too much weight is tiring and will likely lead to injury if carrying long distances through the hallways of your new home, so it’s best to avoid carrying anything that is heavier than 25 pounds.
How not to overstuff boxes: Over-stuffed items will have a tendency to be more fragile and less durable during transportation because they are harder for the movers to handle. Items should never exceed 50% capacity in order for them to protect themselves from damage while being transported.
How not get stressed out by packing up all at once: It can feel like you’re getting ground down into nothing when starting this project from beginning to end with no breaks – don’t underestimate how mentally exhausting doing everything all at once can be! The most efficient way would be tackling it one room or floor at a time as opposed to trying to finish off an entire house in one day.
