Moving Without The Grief

When I told my husband that I got promoted and that we would be moving across the country, you should have seen the look on his face. He was clearly devastated, and I didn't know what to do to make it better. Instead of focusing on the negative things, I started working with him to help him to overcome his grief. We talked about how we could stay in close touch with family and friends, and how to make the move less stressful than other moves in the past. This blog is all about moving without the hassle and heartache.

These Are The Worst DIY Mistakes You Can Make When Moving


Deciding to move from one place to another is challenging, especially when it comes to organizing everything you own and transporting it safely to the new location. If you fail to pay special attention to this part of the process, you are likely to make a couple of mistakes that will make the entire experience unpleasant and tiresome. Here are a few of the worst mistakes you are likely to make while moving and how movers can help you avoid them. 

Trying to Move Alone When You Need Assistance

One of the serious mistakes people make is trying to move on their own. Disassembling and moving furniture from one place to another is a complex process, and more so when you lack the right tools to get the job done. However, the moving company has the right tools to lift, roll, load, and unload heavy furniture. They also have protective gear to keep them safe when lifting heavy items and they often have insurance against injuries.

Failure to Declutter 

Moving is all about a fresh start, and what is a better way to create room for new memories than decluttering? The truth is, you never know how much clutter you have until it's time to pack your house, and you are suddenly surrounded by items you didn't know existed or haven't used for a long time. Instead of packing up everything in sight, a moving company can help you decide what items to get rid of that don't truly add value to your life. 

Failing to declutter is a costly mistake in terms of time, storage, and money. Instead, free up space in the moving truck by donating, recycling, or trashing items you no longer need or use.

Failure to Get Insurance Coverage

Anything can happen to your items during the DIY moving process. Your responsibility is to ensure that you protect your items from breakage, scratches, theft, and other issues. However, should anything go wrong during the move, make sure your valuables are insured to avoid major losses. 

The good thing about working with a moving company is that they will give you full-value protection for your household items. This means they will replace everything that gets damaged during the move if they are at fault. Some companies can also give you a separate liability insurance product, protecting you from all possible damage. Even though chances of damage are minimal, you movers always have you protected.

These are basic mistakes that you should avoid when handling the moving process. Consider hiring a moving company to help you manage all aspects of the move. There is no doubt that they will transform your moving experience and protect you from unnecessary damages and losses.
