You’ve most likely heard people say that moving is one of the most difficult tasks you can undertake. While this is true, a short-notice move can be even more stressful. Like any move, however, you don’t need to worry so much. There are unique methods and proven techniques to make moving easier and less stressful. Life is unpredictable. When you’re faced with a last-minute move, handle it like a pro.
There are numerous reasons why you may be faced with a last-minute move. Typically, the most frequent reasons include:
- Your original moving company failing to show up
- Family or friends backing out
- A promotion or new opportunity
- Unwelcome news, such as a death in the family or inability to renew a lease on your current apartment
Whatever the case may be, you still have options. The only thing that actually matters is that you do need to relocate. This time, you’ll need to do it quick.
If you’re faced with a move, don’t cower in the corner. Get into action mode!
How much time do you have until moving day? If it’s less than two weeks, you’ve got some work to do. First off, consider hiring a professional moving service. Many service providers work well under time constraints and pressure. You’ll have experienced hands helping you move heavy furniture and pack each room, then load the moving truck. Without friends and family helping, you’re on your own without a moving company.
Furthermore, remain calm. The worst possible thing you could do is to freak out and begin to panic. When we panic, we often fail to complete necessary tasks. Don’t let that be the case.
