If you’re buying a home for sale in DC Ranch, you (and your REALTOR®) want it to be as low-stress as possible – but what can you do to ease things up a bit? Check out these five tips to make your move to DC Ranch less stressful.
5 Tips to Make Your Move to DC Ranch Less Stressful
You can take some of the stress out of your upcoming move if you:
- Get extra moving supplies
- Donate, sell or throw out excess belongings
- Choose the right moving company
- Find a pet sitter for moving day
- Pack an “immediate needs” box for the big day
Here’s a closer look at each.
Tip #1 to De-Stress Your Move to DC Ranch: Get Extra Moving Supplies
The last thing you want is to run out of moving supplies when you’re on a roll, so do yourself a favor and pick up more moving supplies than you think you’ll need. You can always return the excess later!
Tip #2 to De-Stress Your Move to DC Ranch: Donate, Sell or Throw Out Excess Belongings
Purge your possessions of everything you don’t actually need before you start packing up to move. If you have items you’ve been meaning to fix but haven’t gotten around to it yet, household goods you haven’t used in six months or more, or things you simply no longer want, the best thing to do is determine whether you should donate, sell or throw them out. You’ll lighten your load for moving day and keep your new home free-and-clear from clutter.
Tip #3 to De-Stress Your Move to DC Ranch: Choose the Right Moving Company
Not all moving companies are created equal; some are far better than others are. You want to find a moving company that provides all the services you need at a price that falls within your budget. Ideally, you’ll get quotes from at least three moving companies (but preferably more), and you’ll make time to read reviews and check for Better Business Bureau complaints before you make a hiring decision.

Tip #4 to De-Stress Your Move to DC Ranch: Find a Pet Sitter for Moving Day
Moving is stressful on pets, too, and moving day can end in tragedy if you’re not careful. Consider hiring a pet sitter for the big day, because your front door will likely be wide open for some (or all) of the day – and that provides ample opportunity for a stressed pet to make a run for it.
Tip #5 to De-Stress Your Move to DC Ranch: Pack an “Immediate Needs” Box for the Big Day
Set aside a special box or duffel bag full of items that you’re likely to need right away in your new home, such as:
- Towels, washcloths and toiletries (and maybe even a shower curtain)
- Paper plates, plastic cutlery and napkins
- Pet food and dishes
- Medications, extra eyeglasses, contacts and contact lens solution
- Kids’ toys, books and entertainment devices
- Extra clothing
