room-with-moving-boxes5 Ways to Reduce Stress when planning your Move


At Green Van Lines, we know that moving from one home to another can be an incredibly emotional and stressful experience for anyone. While most of the stresses of relocating are very common, they are also manageable to create a stress-free relocation.

Manage your Time Wisely

Managing your time wisely is a big contributor in a low-stress move. Often, people fall behind on time when preparing to move and find themselves rushing at the last minute to prepare. As your moving day approaches, you experience increased levels of stress, because all you can think about is the unnerving possibility that you’re not ready for your moving day.

The more time you have allowed yourself to spend focusing on moving-related tasks, the less stress you will feel in the days before your move.

Build a Moving Checklist

One of the best ways to lower the stress of moving is to build a checklist of everything you need to get done, with the date you want to complete it by. A detailed checklist for your move will make sure you are completely ready for your move.

Additionally, each time you mark off a completed task, you will know you’re making progress in preparing for your move, and that you will be ready on time.

Hire a Trustworthy, Full-Service Mover

Whether you’re planning a long-distance or local move, you want to protect each of your belongings during packing, loading and moving. When hiring a full-service moving company, you get to sit back and relax while an experienced team of professional movers pack up your household items and loads them for safe transportation.

Protect your Valuable Belongings

One primary source of stress when moving stems from the process of all of your valuables being moved from one place to another, often hundreds or thousands of miles away. This elevates the stress of the possibility of your prized possessions being damaged en route.

Experienced professionals like Green Van Lines Moving Company – Dallas take care of all small or large valuable items and use plenty of packing paper and bubble wrap to ensure that your items arrive safely and intact.

Pack with a Plan

When preparing for your move, it is important to consider an array of possibilities, including how much assistance you will need from a moving company. Packing for your move is likely the most stressful part. To lower stress, plan out what you will do on your own and what you will hire a company to do for you.
