5 Moving Hacks You Need to Know for Your Next Move


Moving to a new house is often described as a highly stressful experience by most Americans. In fact, 40% of Americans said that moving to a new house is the most stressful experience in modern life. A third of this group even admitted to breaking down in tears.

But your next move doesn’t have to be the end of the world. These moving hacks will help you make the entire experience a little bit less stressful.

  1. Create a Moving Supply Box

Is there anything more frustrating than losing the tape, scissors, and labels? It’s so easy to do during the chaos of a move.

That’s why you should create a moving supply box. Whether it’s a cardboard box or an old toolbox, this is going to be your caddy.

  1. Use Bulky Clothes as Padding

For delicate items you need specific packing supplies…or do you?

These take up valuable space, so why not use bulky sweatshirts and thick socks instead? They work in the same way as these packing supplies, but overall, they’ll save space. Put them to good use. It’s an easy way to cut down on costs and reduce the number of boxes.

  1. Suitcases are Your Friend

Did you know that 31 million Americans will experience lower back strain at one point in their life? This often happens when lifting something heavy when you’re not used to it. Understandably, this is most likely to happen when you’re trying to move heavy objects out of your old home.

The chances are you have at least one suitcase hanging around the house. Use these to deal with heavier objects. If they have wheels, you’ll be able to save your lower back.

  1. Pack the Essentials in a Single Box

It’s going to take days for you to unpack everything when you arrive. The home closing process could easily take 45 days, assuming there are no unexpected delays.

Don’t make it even harder by arriving at your new home and having to frantically search through various boxes. Pack the essentials for the first couple of nights. This includes any food, linen, and some clothes, as well as any essential documentation.

This will make moving in so much easier.

  1. Choose a Professional Moving Company to Make it Easier

One of the best hacks around is to avoid all the hassle and to choose a professional moving company. For a fee, they will organize everything for you and use professional movers with years’ worth of experience. Therefore, you know that everything is going to get to your new home safe.

But Hudson Movers cautions against choosing any man with a van. Make sure you do your research, so you know you’re getting a solid service tailored to your needs.

Last Word – Make Moving Easier

Nobody is ever going to tell you that moving is not going to be stressful. But these five hacks, when implemented, will eliminate much of that stress.

If you want to make moving easy, work smart not hard.

Are you planning to move to a new house soon?
