Moving is one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. If you have children or you’re moving to an unfamiliar area, the process can be even more stressful. Change is never easy, and so many things will change as a result of a move, especially if it’s an out-of-city move. Throw in starting a new career in your new area, and your stress level may be close to the top of your sanity meter.

But moving can be much less stressful when you let professional moving services help you with some or all of the moving work. Many professional movers offer packing services so you can concentrate on your family’s needs and all the things you need to do once you arrive in your new area. When researching professional movers, it’s a good idea to ask how they screen their employees with background checks to alleviate any worries about individuals helping you pack your belongings.

One size doesn’t fit all. Moving companies can also handle furniture or office equipment if you have large items to be moved. If you have delicate items to be moved, such as china or antiques, those belongings need to be packed with extra care. Clothing is also another area of difficulty to pack because hanging clothes is preferable to folding and packing in a box like other household items. You’ll want a variety of box sizes, paper to wrap glass or other breakable items, and packing tape. It’s also a good idea to separate out any items that will be of immediate need, like medications, toys, and important documents. You may also want to personally pack mementos, like photos, jewelry, or other special items that shouldn’t be packed with your general boxes.

A professional moving company can also help you unpack your boxes. Moving to a new city or country can be hectic and overwhelming. Many individuals and families who move seek to get their new space set up and organized as quickly as possible to feel settled. It’s difficult to start a new job or become acclimated to a new community when your home doesn’t yet feel like home.
