The home move is not at all easy but sometimes we tend to stress out more than we should. We might be thinking that we have a hundred things to do whereas the tasks could only be a total of 20 things to complete. Always remember that being organized will always help you with your anxiety. This is because you know what you have to do and when you have to do it which keeps on giving you a feeling of comfort. Make a to-do list in which you should list out everything you have to do before and after the move. Do not get overwhelmed by the list if it’s a little long. Know that you still have time and the tasks are not too long to complete.

Make sure that you set dates in your mind and on the list. Set deadlines such as this particular task should ideally be completed within these many days. Make sure not to give yourself impossible deadlines because that will just add to your anxiety. Think realistically and complete your tasks accordingly. This will ensure your mind that you can easily complete all your work and be at ease. Overthinking is not the solution… seriously.

It’s important to not forget yourself. Many people start to neglect themselves when moving as they think that they have no time to spare. That is never true because if you think about it, you can always make time for yourself. You must be strong and independent but it is never a bad idea to ask a friend or a family member for help. This will reduce the burden from your shoulders and also give you some time to give to yourself.

Prioritizing your things is another thing which will go a long way. Ranking tasks from the most to least important is something which will greatly help and alleviate anxiety. As things keep crossing off your list you will feel better and right on track. You would know what to deal with now and what to do deal with later. Remember to breathe and relax. If you are living in New Zealand then you will find yourself surrounded by so many moving companies around you. The services offered by moving companies are very helpful and you can find many economical deals as well. Choose the best one and relax.

They helped us with a house move from Hamilton to Christchurch. On the day of the move the truck arrived well on time and everything was loaded and good to go in pretty much one hour! Matt was a great help and really friendly to deal with. As agreed on, the truck arrived two days later in Christchurch and unloading was done quick and efficiently! Just remember that, as reflected on their price, you can’t expect everything to come out without any scratch if you don't wrap it yourself. We made sure everything was good to go on the day of move and wrapped our more valuable stuff in bubble wrap, plastic wrap or in sturdy boxes. That worked great for us and made their job a lot easier I imagine.

Epic packing! Strong, fast movers and so polite and sweet. Only 2 items with tiny damage. But muddy crap conditions and I'm insured excess so not worth it, as I say nominal. For the price chur chur!!! I feel blessed that's all that happened to be honest! Paid for 3 both ways, 3 showed for pickup, 2 for delivery, don't refund, just buy the two a box. I thought delivery 3 hours?? Maybe?? Done in 1.5. So pleased. Thank you team, thank you, thank you. Moving from Whangarei Heads to Orks is hell stressful, your people did the job above my expectations and I am very very grateful. Highly recommend!!

Pawan and his team were excellent! We moved across the country, and despite this long distance we miraculously had no breakage of delicate kitchen items, and only a few minor scuffs and scrapes (to be expected) on a few tricky furniture items. They were great with communication, and arrived promptly with a load in and load out well faster than we expected. They were also very understanding and helpful when we had a lot more gear than we’d initially planned, with very reasonable pricing given we had to take extra space, and also scheduling flexibly for us so that we could be there at both ends of the trip. Payment was easy - they just gave us the bank details after the move was complete and were very easy to work with. Super lovely guys too - very friendly and reassuring which is exactly what you want on a high pressured and stressful moving day. Overall would highly recommend and will definitely be giving them a call again next time we have gear to move. Can’t thank them enough!
