      PODS Wisconsin Helps Residents Avoid These 6 Moving Mistakes

      Moving to a new home ranks high on a list of life’s most stressful experiences, along with weddings, divorces, and job interviews according to a study by Sparefoot. It can be expensive, time-consuming, and exhausting. However, PODS® Wisconsin can help take the stress out of the moving process by helping residents avoid 6 crucial moving mistakes and turn their move into one of life’s greatest adventures.

      1. Bringing It All. Everyone knows that moving is the perfect time to de-clutter your belongings, but it can be tempting to just pack and deal with it later. Don’t skip it; make a trip to the nearest charity donation drop-off (or several trips) and be done with it. You’ll thank yourself on the other side of the move.

      2. Insufficient Packing Materials. Don’t cut corners — spend the money to buy the proper packing materials: bubble wrap, cardboard dividers, furniture pads, packing tape, and sturdy boxes in a variety of sizes.

      3. Poor Organization. Don’t arrive at your new home with no clue where you put the shampoo and toothbrushes. Pack a “survival kit” with items you’ll need right away, such as personal care, some clothes, paper towels, etc. Instead of room-by-room, pack the items you need least followed by more important belongings. Label each box clearly, including which room it belongs in.

      4. Hiring the Wrong Moving Company. Before you sign a contract, make sure to research the moving company’s online reviews and make sure everything is included, to eliminate expensive surprises on moving day.

      5. Rushing Yourself. Take your time, because trying to get it all done too quickly results in extra stress as well as breakage and even injuries. PODS Storage Containers are rented by the month, so you can pack it up on your own schedule instead of rushing to do it all in a weekend.

      6. Procrastination. Waiting till the last minute isn’t good either. Create a timeline for getting each moving task done: decluttering, buying supplies, scheduling your PODS Storage Container delivery and pickup, packing, giving your home a final cleanup, and unpacking in your new location.

      “The stress of the moving process can often cause people to make these avoidable mistakes,” said John Hudson, managing partner for PODS Wisconsin. “A PODS container is the perfect solution for any move because it provides convenience and accessibility while you transition into your new home.”
