Now that you have purchased or sold a home, you may be dreading the thought of having to now move your belongings. There are many ways you can make the moving process be a smooth transition rather than a stressful project. If you have children or pets, hire a sitter or bring your pet to a day boarding company for the actual moving day. This will help you be able to focus on the task at hand and not be distracted or needed elsewhere. When packing make sure to label boxes as best as you can, so when you are looking for your kitchen spatula you won’t have to scour through 5 boxes before you find it. Hiring a moving company can also be a large weight lifted from your shoulders, especially if you do not own a vehicle large enough to transfer furniture.
