Rookie Moving Mistakes to Avoid

Moving is exciting. Whether it is your first move or your 50th, there's no denying the thrill that comes with a fresh start and a new setting. Before you can begin relishing your new home, though, you'll have to undergo the dreaded move. While moving can be stressful at times, it doesn't have to be. Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management recommends avoiding these common mistakes that frequently lead to confusion, exhaustion, and unnecessary stress:

Forgetting to Make a Plan

While you might be tempted to just throw everything into boxes and sort it out once you've moved into your new place, this is a recipe for disaster. Without a plan in place, your move could be a serious headache. Take time to inventory your possessions and group them in a way that makes sense. It'll make the unpacking process much easier!

Failing to Set Aside Must-Haves

Once you're in your new apartment, you'll be eager to unwind. Make it easy on yourself! Group must-haves like phone chargers, coffee pots, toiletries, and clothes together. Also, be sure to keep important documents like your lease and renters' insurance policy close at hand.

Ignoring Your Pets' Needs

Your pet is part of the family, but without a voice of their own, they can struggle to have their needs recognized. This is especially true during moves. Create a pet survival pack for them as you pack up the rest of your home. Include food, bowls, medicine, leashes, and anything else you might need to grab at a moments' notice. Your pet will thank you for thinking ahead!
