May is National Moving Month! This month is when summer begins, as well as the busiest moving season of the year in the US. Whether you’re moving to or from college, changing residences in the same area, or moving across the country, the month of May is the most common time people pack up move.

Moving is not a quick and easy event; it is more than just transferring your belongings from one house to another. Whether moving across town or across the country, moving requires time and patience as much as it requires money.

If you are planning to make a move this summer, having a plan is important. Read on for three useful tips for a stress-free move as National Moving Month gets underway.


  1. Professional Movers

One of the most stressful parts of moving is the move itself. Choosing a moving company requires an inordinate amount of trust. Parting with your belongings for any amount of time is difficult, so securing the services of an experienced, reliable moving company can help eliminate some of your stress so you can focus on everything else that comes with moving. Get a few estimates from recommended professionals, then make your choice and set up a date.

  1. Storage

When you’re moving, you might find that you don’t want to move everything you have in your current house into your new one. You will likely purge some of what you’ve collected, but some of it might be difficult to part with or you might want to save for the future. In that case, storage is something worth a look. Check out all your options, then choose a few facilities; get price quotes and select the best facility for the items you want to keep safe and sound.

  1. Home Cleaners

You likely will need both the house you are moving out of and the house you are moving into to be professionally cleaned. There are many professional cleaning services to choose from in most areas, so know that you have options. Finding a trustworthy cleaning service that does good work is important, so check out reviews and recommendations as well as cost quotes before choosing a service that will work best for you.
