Benefits of Using a Moving Planner to Prepare for a Move

If you’re planning a move, there’s likely a great deal of stress involved. Planning the move itself doesn’t have to be completely overwhelming, however if you take it one step at a time. There are numerous planners online that can be found through Google and Pinterest, if you run a quick search. These will help you find a list of activities, in order, so that you can plan out your move step by step. This will help keep the process running smoothly, so that you can focus on the most important tasks each day.

Help Lower Your Stress


Moving is an incredibly stressful process. It can feel like everything in your home is in the wrong place, with boxes moving here, there, and yon at rapid speed. Taking the time to print out a moving planner with a detailed checklist of actions to take as you work through the moving process is a way to lower your stress, so that you feel calmer as you work towards your goal. Instead of knowing that there’s “a lot” to do before moving day, you’ll know that there are specific tasks to do on specific days.

Work to Handle Details that Movers Won’t

Movers have specific jobs to do on the days around the move. They’ll be focused on measuring spaces, packing your belongings carefully, and relocating the boxes and furniture from your old home to your new residence, possibly with some time for storage in between. They won’t likely know much about either area, and may not be able to help you with details like turning on the electricity, where the breaker box is, or how to get into contact with local utility companies. You’ll need to use your moving planner to sort out those details in advance.

Help Keep You Organized Throughout the Process

Your moving planner will help keep you organized throughout the process. It will have a lengthy timeline, allowing you to list out what should happen when, phone numbers to contact, and where and when specific parties should be arriving. This will allow you to focus on the details of the move that you need to manage, so that you can be where you need to be when. In addition, you’ll have all of the important details that you’ll need, precisely when you need them.

Allow Movers to Focus on their Own Tasks

Best of all, your planner allows your movers to stay focused on their own tasks, instead of worrying about helping you with yours. You can focus on the important tasks you need to take care of, and they can focus on theirs. This keeps you safely out of the way, taking care of tasks like getting utilities turned on, drivers licenses moved to the correct state, and more.
