How do you move in a short time?

Aug 5

You would have plenty of time to prepare for any move you need to make in a perfect world. It is not easy to move. There are many details and tasks involved. It is best to allow yourself at least three to four weeks for everything to go smoothly. However, in real life, things happen quickly and you need to move fast.

There are two types of hurried moves. The ones that you have little time between the moment you find out you need to move and the actual move. And the ones that you procrastinate and end up with a totally unpacked house a few days before the movers arrive. It doesn't matter what situation you are in, it is important to know how to move quickly. These are some tips that will help you make a last-minute decision.

  1. The logistics are the first thing to do.

    Last-minute moves can make any task seem impossible or urgent. It is easy to become overwhelmed by the amount of work that must be done. Instead of letting all the moving tasks overwhelm you, take deep breaths and start to cross items off your list.

  2. Plan your move.

    After you've hired movers or rented a truck to move your belongings, you can start to plan what you should do during the time before you actually move. Our moving checklists will help you get started. Start by reviewing our moving checklists. You can also add tasks that are specific to your situation. You will need to inform the school immediately if your children are in school.

    Next, consider how much time you have before the move. Organize these tasks into what needs to be done immediately, what can wait for a week, and what should be done in the days that follow. Add to this what you have to do on a moving day. Keep track of any new tasks that come up.

  3. Get rid of everything you don't use.

    Less packing is better. Easy packing is essential for a last-minute move. Take a look through every room and closet in your apartment or house and remove any items that you don't need or want. These items can be divided into three piles: recycle, donate, or throw away.

  4. Make sure you have everything you need for your move.

    Make sure you have a small bag for your essentials before you begin packing. You should include any medication and important documents, chargers, daily toiletries, and perhaps a few clothes. This is something you should do regardless of whether you are moving quickly. However, it is especially important if you have to move last-minute, which can be more stressful and messy. After you have sorted your essentials bag, it's time to start packing.

  5. Ask for help.

    Moving can be a difficult task, especially if it needs to be done quickly. It's perfectly okay to ask your family and friends for help. A few helpers can help you prioritize and stay on track, as well as help you get the job done quicker. It's much easier to do tedious tasks such as packing your kitchen cabinets or dropping off items for donation when someone else is helping. You don't have to be shy about asking for help. However, you can show your appreciation by ordering a meal or baking cupcakes for your helpers once you're settled into your new home.

  6. Some tasks can be left to the movers.

    The best thing about hiring professional movers? They can help you when it is really critical. I remember packing my apartment at 10 p.m. when the movers arrived at 7 a.m. (I don't recommend this). Without their assistance, I wouldn't have been able to pack everything. It's fine to delegate some tasks to movers, but you will end up spending more on packing materials and labor. Sometimes a rush move is the best option.

No matter how much time or effort you put into moving, it can be stressful. Do not rush to figure out how to move. Instead, think about the bigger picture and get your belongings to your new place as safely as possible. Although unpacking may take longer than usual, it is still possible.
