Let's face it. Moving can be stressful for even the most organized family. No matter how far in advance you prepare, there is an extensive checklist of items to think about, including packing and getting your new home ready. So how can you make the relocation as low-stress as possible? Below are some of our suggestions for reducing the pressure of moving.


1. Rent the Truck Now - Don't Wait

Moving doesn't happen without a truck. It's the most important piece of the puzzle and something you can't wait until the last minute to do. Therefore, get on the phone and call Ed's Moving & Storage to reserve your truck.


2. Secure Your Moving Equipment & Supplies

Once you have your truck reserved, it's now time to get all your supplies together. We have all the packing boxes and equipment you need to ensure your valuables are safe.


3. Hire Professional Movers

The most stressful part of moving is trying to do it alone without help. You can relieve the stress by hiring professional movers from our team to provide full packing services. We can get it done in half the time without bringing any damage to your belongings.


4. Get a Game Plan and Stick to It

Now that you've laid the groundwork, it's time to develop a strategy that works for you. Starting planning right away and pace yourself as you go. Remember, you don't have to get everything done today, but you always don't want to wait until the last minute.


5. Get to Know the Area You're Moving To

It's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the area you are moving to before moving. Once you arrive, you'll quickly discover that you'll be needing some items like groceries and supplies. You'll also want to know where the local utilities are as well as other services you'll be utilizing right away.


6. Get Rid of Your Junk

Whatever you do, don't take your junk and unwanted items with you. Go from room to room and start liquidating your items. You can give them away to a local charity, have a yard sale, sell them online, or throw them away. Moving is the perfect time to simplify your life.
