Moving day can be one of life’s most exciting yet stressful experiences — whether you’re a business owner, student, or homeowner. At Stock N Lock, we understand the challenges of moving. 

We’re also here to lend a hand to help ease your journey. Without further ado, let’s dive into some practical ways you can feel less stressed on your moving day.

1. Plan and organize in advance

The key to a smooth move is early planning. Start by creating a checklist of tasks you need to complete. Organizing your belongings, deciding what to keep, and figuring out what needs to go into storage are great first steps. 

With our variety of storage units, ranging from a small 10 square feet to a spacious 600 square feet, you’ll find the perfect space for your needs at Stock N Lock.

2. Explore self-storage solutions

Self-storage units are a lifesaver when it comes to moving. They offer flexible storage options, allowing you to store items you don’t immediately need. This can be particularly helpful if you’re downsizing or need to vacate your current space before your new one is ready. 

Our self-storage facilities at Stock N Lock are secure, accessible, and available for short-term storage or longer — whatever you need, we’re here to make it easier.

3. Declutter before the move

One of the best ways to reduce moving day stress is by decluttering. Go through your belongings and decide what to keep, donate, sell, or throw away. 

For those items you want to keep but can’t move right away, our personal storage units are the perfect decluttering solution. You’ll feel lighter and more organized, making the actual move much easier.

4. Pack efficiently

Effective packing can significantly reduce stress. There’s nothing worse than entering your new property with no idea where anything is! Label your boxes by room and contents, and consider an essentials box with items you’ll need immediately upon arrival at your new place. We have boxes available at our online shop, alongside accessories such as packing tape, padlocks and bubble wrap that can make your life easier. 

If you’re storing items with us, rest assured they’ll be safe and sound in our award-winning facilities until you’re ready to retrieve them.

5. Ask for help

Don’t be afraid to ask for a hand. Whether it’s friends and family or professional movers, having an extra set of hands can make a big difference. Remember, at Stock N Lock, our passionate team is always here to help with your storage needs, offering moving solutions with a smile.

6. Listen to your body

Moving can be physically and emotionally taxing. Remember to take breaks, stay hydrated, and eat properly. It’s not just about the physical move — it’s essential to care of yourself throughout the process, too.

7. Make the most of house move storage options

If you’re between homes, house move storage can be a lifesaver. Our storage units at Stock N Lock are ideal for storing furniture, luggage, and other large items safely and securely. With flexible storage options, you can choose the duration and size that best suits your situation.

8. Create a schedule for moving day

On the actual day, you can’t go wrong with a plan. Know what time the removals team are arriving and what needs to be loaded first. Make sure you know the route to your new home and that you have contact numbers handy for anyone involved in the move. If you’re using our storage facilities, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your belongings are in safe hands with us.

9. Stay positive

Finally, keep a positive attitude. Moving is a significant life event and can be the start of a fantastic new chapter. Focus on the excitement of what’s to come, rather than the stress of the moment.
