Common Moving Nightmares (and How to Prevent Them)

Avoid these common moving errors.


Moving may top the list of stressful experiences that can feel like a bad dream. One can easily get incredibly frustrated and overwhelmed when moving home, especially if you haven’t properly prepared. Problems can occur at every stage of the relocation process. Here are a few of the most common moving nightmares and how to prevent them.


  • Failing to prepare

Moving involves a lot of loose ends, and even the smallest oversight can lead to a nightmare-induced day. You may have packed more items than previously discussed with the movers, and some items cannot be loaded onto the moving truck. You may not have accounted for the size of furniture, meaning you need to leave treasured pieces that don’t fit in your new property. The best way to avoid problems when moving house is to plan each step to stay ahead at all times.


  • Getting stuck in traffic

Heavy traffic or road accidents can severely delay movers, putting you behind schedule. While there’s nothing you can do to prevent traffic accidents or breakdowns, you can at least reserve a parking place in front of your old and new house. Choose a moving company that has experienced drivers, too.


  • Miscommunication with movers

Perhaps the movers are late. Perhaps the movers are careless or experienced. If the moving team you hired isn’t acting the way you expected, this can waste a lot of time. The good news is that you can easily avoid these situations by carefully researching your movers before hiring them. Make sure they are licensed, experienced, and have plenty of good reviews online.
