Montreal Movers Get You Moving!
Getting yourself in gear can be the hardest part of any move. Unfortunately, there is no really easy way to get excited about all that cleaning, packing and moving. But, here are some tips from a Montreal moving company to help you get started on the whole process with some enthusiasm:
1. Focus on the big picture. In most cases, moving means some exciting new prospect in life. Too often, we look at the pile of things we have accumulated over time and think of moving as a hassle. Instead of taking the pessimistic approach, try to imagine your new space with all the furniture in place and decorated just how you would like.
2. Consult with local movers. Not surprisingly, professional movers have their fair share of stories – both good and bad – about moving experiences. If you meet with an employee of a long distance moving company, they will surely tell you some funny anecdote about getting lost or having trouble navigating a very large truck through very tiny alleys. This light hearted conversation will help you put your move into a better perspective. And, while you are talking, don’t forget to ask them for an estimate to cart your belongings off to your new place.
3. Challenge yourself. Is there a particular area of the house you have been meaning to clean out anyway? Use the moving process to eliminate the excess junk that has been accumulating. If you have been procrastinating cleaning out the attic, basement or garage, this is the perfect time to tackle two projects at once. Plan to donate unwanted and gently used items to a local charity.
4. Set realistic goals. One reason people are not successful when they make a plan is because their goals are too lofty. When moving, you may think that you can pack one whole room in under an hour. Of course, that is a highly unlikely event. If you are moving a very long distance away, any international moving company representative will tell you that ample planning is needed, especially when traveling very long distances. Because you may have to pay according to the weight of your belongings, getting rid of nonessential items becomes a more appealing option.
Plan to tackle one or two small projects per week, if time allows. If you are pressed for time as the moving date approaches, consider having a “packing party” with family or friends. Not only can they help you decide what to keep and what to toss, they provide free labor for packing and organizing.
Planning for a move does not have to be a task worth dreading. In fact, if your mindset remains positive, this experience can be very invigorating. You will finally be able to remove clutter from the most unlikely places, and get around to those odd jobs you have been avoiding. It may never exactly be fun, but at least these tips will make it more tolerable. If you’re in need of more tips, download our Free eBook!
