Moving and starting fresh in a new place is an exciting time. It is also a busy time. The amount of logistics that go into a move are overwhelming to say the least. The process is difficult when everything goes off without a hitch. When you are riddled with problems during a move, it’s enough to do anybody in. Prodigy Moving & Storage is here to share some tips that will hopefully help you avoid some of the common moving nightmares that we will list below.
Your Your Apartment Lease is Up Before Your New Place is Ready
This is a mistake that happens far too often. When planning your move, you want to make sure that the time lines are going to add up. If your current lease will be expired before you are able to move into your new place, you can always ask your landlord to stay a bit longer for a pro-rated amount. It may be higher than normal, but you don’t want to find yourself homeless for a week or so.
Common DIY Moving Injuries
Moving is hard work. Many people aren’t used to the physical demands that come with moving. It is important to remember to use good form when you are lifting heavy objects. You should always make sure you have enough help to make the load lighter as well. If the object is far too heavy for you and you can’t find help, you may want to consider renting equipment that will help you lift it without injuring yourself. During a move, you don’t have time to get hurt.
Overwhelmed with Too Much Stuff to Move
You never realize how much stuff you have accumulated until you try to move it all. You realize quickly just how much you have to do in order to relocate. This is why it is best to get started early. If needed, this is a good time to go through your belongings and donate what you don’t need. If you need a little extra cash, you can always have a yard sale to kill two birds with one stone. Once you have your new place found, make sure your belongings are going to fit in it, and get rid of what you need to.
You’ve Gone Over Moving Budget
Not only is moving hard work, but it is expensive. Even when you handle the entire move on your own, it takes a certain amount of money to cover the cost of a new deposit or closing costs on a new house. To help ease the cost of moving, try moving in the middle of the week to cut costs. You can also move in the middle of the month to get better rates as well.
