Today, let’s go over three mistakes that buyers and sellers make when they prepare to make a move. Making these mistakes can cause a lot of preventable stress.
Did you know that you can hire people from U-Haul to help you pack up the house?
- Buyers and sellers don’t prepare far enough in advance. If you know that you’re going to be moving in the next two to six months, go ahead and start packing up all the little things you don’t use on a regular basis, such as your spare closet full of blankets or the extra dishes that you only use once a year. Pack it up now; you’ll appreciate it once you move.
- They underestimate the amount of time it takes to pack and prepare. I know when my husband and I recently renovated our closet, we thought we could get everything moved a couple hours before the workers came to change the shelving. This was a big mistake.
- They think they can do it all by themselves. The moving process requires a lot of resources, so recruit your family, bribe your friends, or hire someone to help you do the packing. Did you know that you can hire people from U-Haul to help you pack up the house? They’ll help you move it as well. We also have a moving truck that you can use for free.
