    I love your format on this post. It matched my, “get the information and get out” mode of operation.

    This is a very concise list, thank you. I’m trying to convince myself that it’s ok to let someone else pack my stuff when I eventually move.

      I honestly didn’t have any problem letting other people pack my things (it helped that I packed up the most important things beforehand and had them ready to load into my vehicle). I know it would be really hard for some people, though!

    Great tips! And I love that you recommend a specific moving company. Wish they were closer to PA, haha. We may be moving soon, and I am dreading it.

      Good luck!

    We have only moved a few times, thank goodness. The last time I was pregnant, not fun!! You pointed out great reasons to hire a moving company.

      I was pregnant during one of our moves, and I could never have helped carry furniture or bigger things — plus, my husband was dealing with some physical pain at the time so he couldn’t do much either. Having movers was a lifesaver!

    Yes on the moving company! I know there are horror stories out there but if you look at reviews and do your homework the convenience is amazing!

    • Reply TONYA February 25, 2020 at 3:46 pm

      Yes, you definitely want to make sure they are a reputable company.

    I wish we could’ve hired someone last year! Moving with 4 kids is no easy task!

    • Reply TONYA February 25, 2020 at 3:45 pm

      Agreed, it’s SO much harder with kids!

    We have moved so many times and have never used a moving company. We’re planning on moving next year and I am determined to hire a moving company this time.

    • Reply TONYA February 25, 2020 at 3:45 pm

      I hope you do! It’s such a relief having someone else take care of most of the physical work.

  • Reply Chantelle February 25, 2020 at 9:45 pm

    I’ve never used a moving company, but I swore last time was the last time I’d do it without!!

    • Reply TONYA February 26, 2020 at 10:51 am

      It’s just so exhausting to do it yourself, even if you have friends and family to help. When you hire movers, you really don’t have to do any heavy lifting at all.

    This is the ONLY reason I will move again– with the help of a moving company! For all the reasons you listed 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

    This is a great list! I love that you provided a concise list and specifically on it helps with keeping you sane.

  • Reply Shirley February 26, 2020 at 6:41 am

    I’ve moved many times in life and have always done it myself with help from family. Now that I’m 60, I must hire help and did so last year. Great tips!

    As an Army brat turned Air Force wife who has moved a LOT, I agree that having movers pack your stuff is a huge help. But the record for breakages is about the same with movers as it was when we did it ourselves. LOL Mistakes happen though, and in the end, it’s all just “stuff.” Next time I move, I’m throwing everything away and buying new stuff at the new place. LOL

      Good idea! Lol.
