Moving is stressful, but moving in a rush can be downright overwhelming. Moving seniors adds another layer of complexity due to potential mobility issues. Fortunately, it’s possible to move on a tight schedule without losing your mind by following a few handy guidelines. Read on for some tips from the moving pros at Busy Buddies.
1. Create a Timeline
Come up with a timeline to help you organize what needs to get done before you have to move. You can use a folder or binder to keep track of all your moving-related documents, including a to-do list with deadlines. The sooner you establish a timeline, the faster you can start doing what needs to be done before moving day.
You don’t have to wait until you have all your documents sorted out before figuring out what to bring with you and what to dispose of. It’s important to declutter your home before you pack so you have a chance to take inventory of everything and set aside items that can be handed down to a family member, donated to charity or thrown out.
3. Hire Help
If you’re really pressed for time, consider hiring senior move managers. Anything you can delegate to someone else will lessen the stress and pressure of moving on you, helping ease your mind for the transition.
