Did you know that 37 million Americans move each year? That’s what the US Census Bureau estimates. Moving is often cited among one of the top 3 stressors in life — right after death and divorce. But it doesn’t have to be such a hard time. When you call the best movers Overland Park has to offer, your entire relocation will be a breeze.

How To Get Started…

Ideally, you’ll begin facilitating your move 8 weeks in advance. During this time, you’ll start tracking all receipts/quotes related to your move, look into IRS tax deductions for moving, research your new community, transfer medical and school records, cancel or transfer any gym or club memberships, list all your valuables and make special arrangements for transporting irreplaceable items. Five weeks in advance, you should pick a specific moving date, contact Overland Park movers for quotes, plan for storage if needed and start packing non-essential items.

Tips For Choosing Movers in Overland Park…

  • If you’re moving across state lines, verify the company’s license at www.ProtectYourMove.gov.
  • Always ask for references and call them.
  • Stop by the moving company’s office and inspect their trucks.
  • Ask if all employees have had drug and background checks.
  • Get several in-home estimates.
  • Avoid movers who charge by “cubic foot.”
  • Obtain a written quote, detailing all expenses and expectations.
  • Ask about the company’s claims process for lost items.

How To De-Stress…

While moving house is undoubtedly a stressful and emotional process, you may find it’s actually quite liberating to get rid of some items. Begin your sorting and packing early so you can throw some things out ahead of time and organize a yard still to part with some of your more salvageable goods. It will feel good to get rid of more boxes full of stuff — that is less you have to move. Develop a good labeling system, along with several essential boxes marked “Open First” to help eliminate stress once you’re in a house full of boxes. Make sure you call the movers Overland Park crew a week ahead of time to make sure they are still committed, but be sure to cover all bases by calling friends and family as a back-up crew. In any event, be sure you have a Plan B. Most importantly, take care of yourself during this time. Eat well, drink lots of water and schedule a good 8 hours of sleep each night. Schedule time to read, visit your favorite coffee shop or get a massage to avoid box-packer’s burn-out.
