Tips for Moving to Colorado
Updated: Feb 25, 2022
Moving can be stressful, especially if you're coming to Colorado from another state. Getting help is a great way to reduce that stress. Don't be afraid to ask for assistance, but also don’t go asking for help the day of your move. Ask your friends and family for help days or more in advance. This gives them plenty of time to take the day off from work or other prior engagements. Also, do your research and figure out how much moving will cost. Here are some more tips on how to take the stress out of your move to Colorado.
Taking the Stress Out of Moving
The last thing you want to happen is to get all your boxes moved into your new home and not know where to find anything. Labeling your boxes will save you a lot time and energy in the long run. This can seem like a hard thing to ask for because the last thing on your mind while packing is the unpacking. However, it is worth the small effort to do it while packing because of how much it will pay off in the future. If you own a label-maker then feel free to use it, if not a few words written in big letters with a pen will have the same effect.
In order to eliminate a lot of heavy lifting on your moving day, try not to stuff every box to the brim. You might have a few more boxes to lug around, but at least they will be light enough to carry by yourself. This is especially import with items that are already heavy, like books and canned items from your pantry. You can take it a step further and don't buy groceries a few weeks before moving and just ate what you already have. This way you won't have to pack many food items at all. Besides, odds are you will be too tired to cook in your new place on your moving day and you'll probably order-in.
