5 Easy Ways to Make Your Relocation Seamless

Moving and starting a new job are stressful events in life, both at once is a lot! It’s important to keep a healthy baseline when you relocate for work, that way you can start your new job in a good place. First impressions are priceless, so start your first day off on your best foot. That’s why we’ve compiled these tips below as a great jumping off point to create a low stress relocation.

When we keep our stress levels as low as possible, that helps our body calm down through the natural functions of a healthy parasympathetic nervous system. That’s why it’s so crucial to manage stress at pivotal moments in life, like relocating.

That’s why we’re here to help at PNW Relo. With our service it’s not about cost, it’s about someone having your back during one of the most stressful events of your life. But in case you don’t need our help, we’ve compiled a list of 5 helpful tips to keep your stress low on your move:

  • Give yourself time buffers everywhere you can. Extra nights at origin so if movers need more time it’s no issue, extra nights in temp housing so you have time to unpack your delivery, etc.
  • Book your household goods movers as soon as you can, everything else works around their schedule.
  • Organize your house and purge your stuff before you move. It makes your move faster, smoother, and lowers shipment weight. Lower shipment weight costs less, and saves on emissions and materials.
  • If you have a family and can arrange for them to be somewhere else during pack and delivery, do it. Especially with young children and dogs. It will make life easier for your family and the movers.
  • Hire professional unpacking help so you can get settled into your new home right away. Movers unpack to the nearest flat surface, but services like our unpacking assistance will hang up pictures, put things away, move furniture around, etc. Don’t let boxes sit around the house for months weighing on the back of your mind, that’s what we’re here for.
