Post-Moving Fatigue And What Causes It

What is the Post-Moving Fatigue And What Causes It?

After all the wrapping, packing and loading, you have finally arrived at your new home. Instead of kicking back and resting for a while, you tell yourself that you have to unpack fast so your life can go back to normal. So you get to work and start undoing all those boxes on the floor and organizing the new house until it starts to actually look like a house. Just when you have reached that point of almost perfect, it happens; your body crushes. You can’t move, you can’t eat, your muscles hurt like hell and all you want to do is sleep all day and all night. This is what post-moving fatigue looks like. For those who don’t know, here are some causes of post-moving fatigue.

Emotional baggage

People don’t realize how emotionally attached you can get to a house, clothes and even insignificant items. The thing about moving is that you are forced to give up a lot of things cold-turkey including your home. After going through the stressful purging step to reduce your items, you now have to leave your precious home behind, leave your friends, leave your church. The emotional turmoil and separation anxiety can really take a toll on your body especially when it finally hits you that you have officially moved.

Burnout

There is a lot that has to be done before, during and even after a move. The process of moving begins weeks or months in advance where you start by looking for a house, getting your finances in order all the way to signing on the dotted corner. After that you have to find a reliable mover, change utilities, clean, buy packing supplies, pack, move and unpack. All these things are happening besides you actual job and raising your family. No matter how strong a person is, if you overwork for an extended period of time, your body will eventually give out.

Lack of enough sleep

The truth is, when you set your mind to the process of moving, sleeping becomes a rare occurrence. It is no surprise to wake up in the middle of the night to plan and sleep very late taking care of stuff. Unfortunately the body needs to recharge for 8 hours every day and failure to do that continually eventually catches up with you.

Stress

Stress is the major cause of fatigue in many situations and there are few things that are more stressful than moving. Despite everything you have to deal with during the moving process, you have to then adjust your brain to a new environment. You have to start being conscious about everything in the house while you did things on auto-pilot mode in the old house. Since there is a direct correlation between how you feel and the state of the mind, you are bound to feel the effects of stress physically especially if it goes on for long.

In a nutshell, moving is emotional, expensive and exhausting and this is not a good combination. Even though you may want to get everything done as soon as possible, it is recommended that you take enough time to rest and eat well every day and especially on the moving day so the body and mind can recharge.

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!
