What is the Moving Activities That Significantly Contribute To Fatigue?

No one who has packed up a truck-full of household items can say that it was fun. Whether you are moving across the country or two blocks away, moving is simply the most exhausting task ever. There are so many things you need to do before you can say that you had a successful move. That is only the beginning because you then have to unpack and organize the new house. Here are some of the most exhausting activities about a move.


The biggest amount of work in a moving process is packing all your items. You have to wrap fragile things before putting them in boxes so they don’t break, disassemble and wrap furniture and even purge some of the things you don’t use anymore. If you have plants and pets, you must come up with ways in which they will be transported safely and you haven’t even started on expensive antiques and wall hangings. Packing is a lot of work and it takes a long time to finish if you don’t hire professional packers.

Remove wrapping Of Box


After all the wrapping and the sealing you did to keep your items safe, you now have to undo that work and put them in appropriate places in the new house. Opening each and every box is one of the most exhausting things especially since you are already so tired after the move. It’s also hard to figure out where everything goes and to come up with a floor plan for the new house.

After you have unpacked everything, you must plan how you want your new house to look like. Organization is tedious because it involves every room of the house and every single thing you own. You have to organize your clothes, kitchen utensils and even arrange the furniture in the living room. There is a lot of thinking, moving items and second-guessing that goes into organizing a house and that’s the most exhausting part.


The irony is that you have to clean the house you are leaving and the one you are going to. To make matters worse, cleaning during a move is not simply vacuuming the floors, you have to deep cleanse everything from windows, attic, carpets, cabinets and drawers and even the heating unit. You have to do this in both houses because you want to go to a clean house and you want to get back your deposit from the agent.

Leaving The Familiar Territory

Leaving the familiar

Stress and emotions play a huge role in post-moving fatigue. One of the major causes of stress when you are moving is leaving the familiar territory and venturing into a new one where everything is scary because it’s unknown. You have to leave your friends behind, colleagues and even your church support group. Not knowing if the people you find there will like you and if you will find things to do in the new place can really put a damp on the move.

Moving is by no means for the faint-hearted. However, with proper planning and awareness that you need help every step of the way whether from family, friends or professionals, you can survive the move and come out shining.

★★★★★ 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.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
