Congratulations on your decision to move! Making a move can be one of the most exciting times in people’s lives. We move for all kinds of reasons, maybe we are moving because we are graduating and striking out on our own. Maybe our move has to do with a better financial situation available elsewhere or to a dream location we have always wanted. Maybe we are moving because a dark period in our lives is finally ending and we need a change of scenery. Whatever our motivations our move is a personal experience and each person’s move will be different from others. With that being said however there are some constants no matter what is motivating your move or where you are going to. The sad truth is that for many people a move is a very stressful time. This is unfortunate because really a move should be a happy exciting time, after all you are changing your surroundings and your perspective and getting a fresh take on life. Much of this stress will come from people who are experiencing significant financial strains due to their move.
There are many ways to reduce this stress and if you find yourself in this situation you really should try. However fun and enjoyable your moving experience might otherwise be it will be ruined if you are constantly stressed about finances and your ability to pay for your move. When moving you do not always want to be cheap and go with the lowest bidder, after all the professionals you hire will be responsible for moving all your worldly possessions. However there is no need to pay top dollar for every service you need during your move, the key is to know where you can cut corners and where you should pay full price.
