Moving can be challenging and expensive. Watch out for these moving mistakes that could cost you!
Not Making a Plan
Whether you are moving across the country or across Washtenaw County, moving takes a lot of work and planning. To alleviate the stress of last minute planning and packing, create a schedule with a moving checklist. Real Simple has a great moving checklist.
Moving Things You No Longer Need
Not only do you waste money moving things you no longer need, you also waste time and energy. Before you begin packing, get rid of everything you don’t use or won’t need in your new home. Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley’s ReStore is a great place to donate what you no longer need.
Packing Poorly Safely and securely pack your belongings. Invest in quality boxes, specifically designed for moving to ensure that your belongs will be safe. Be sure to accurately label boxes to save time when you are unpacking. Don’t wait until the last minute; begin by packing a few boxes a day so the process isn’t so overwhelming.
