Know How Long Does Post-moving Fatigue Last

After you have spent so much time working on the moving process and feeling exhausted all the time, it can feel as if you will be fatigued forever. In fact, some people claim that they felt tired for a whole year after the move. After moving you then have to face up to the fact that very many boxes (up to even hundreds of them) are waiting for you to unpack and organize the items in the house. So, how long does post-moving fatigue last?

Factors that determine how fast you recover from fatigue

  • Extent of the fatigue. There are several stages to post-moving fatigue depending on when you noticed it. Some people continue to push themselves hard even after they have realized the signs of fatigue. The longer you continue to abuse your body and go against its will, the harder it will be for you to recover. People who identify the signs early and stop themselves before it gets any farther are able to recover within a few days with just sleep and a good diet.
  • How well you rest. The best solution to fatigue is enough rest and sleep so the body can repair itself and go back to normal. How fast you recover from fatigue depends on how much rest you are getting. While some people stop the unpacking and cleaning, they have to continue going to work and taking care of the family meaning they still don’t rest. It’s hard to recover quickly in such a situation. However, someone who takes some time off work and asks for help with the kids and house chores to get complete rest is able to recover in record time.

  • Your diet. A great diet is key to repairing and replenishing the body after moving. What you are eating and your eating habits will greatly affect the time your body takes to go back to normal. The rule of thumb is to stay away from fatty, processed and sugary foods. Instead, indulge in foods that have life and plenty of supplements and water. With such a diet and eating three to four times a day, it shouldn’t take long to recover.
  • The environment. How conducive for recovery is the environment you are in? While you may not have finished unpacking and organizing, experts say that living in a messy crowded place will stress you out. Try to get someone to finish the job for you so you can have the peaceful, clutter-free environment you need to recover. Alternatively, go out and check into a hotel for a few days so you can just relax and sleep.
  • How you deal with stress. If you have found positive ways to deal with stress and the emotional turmoil of moving, you will recover faster. The best thing is to get out there and explore the neighborhood, accept social invites and do things that make you happy. Focus on the positives instead of the negatives and get plenty of help.

Ideally, if you are taking care of yourself, post-moving fatigue shouldn’t last more than a week tops after the move. With enough rest, good diet and a positive mentality, you can be up and running in a few days.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
