Humboldt’s Storage and Moving Helps Ease The Stress Of Moving With Consumer Tips, Help with Moving with Children and Advice on Planning a Move.

Online PR News – 08-June-2011 – – Canton, MA, June 08, 2011 -- Moving is cited as one of the most stressful situations a person can go through. Humboldt Storage and Moving, greater Boston’s oldest moving company, agent of United Van Lines and experts in stress-free moving has come up with a number of tips for consumers embarking on their next journey, across town or cross country.

According to the Boston moving company, over half of all moves take place between the months of May and September, and according to the US census, an estimated 37.5 million people moved in 2010. Adding to the potential stress, over 19 million of those moving are estimated to be under the age of 19. To minimize the potential stress of moving, the experts at the Boston moving company have come up with a number of piece of advice to help families ease through this transition:

Plan as far in advance as possible: While some moves are unexpected, the more you can plan a move, the far less stress you’ll be subjected to. Plan your move with family, employers and others involved and take steps to create a checklist of everything that needs to be accomplished.

Involve children: Take the time to involve the children in your life as soon as possible. Tell them about the move, tour your new home and take them to their new school in advance if arrangements can be made. Be conscious of maintaining a positive attitude about the move as the children will follow your lead. You can have younger children pack their own special box to take with them in the car to help them feel included.

Don’t get scammed: Only do business with a reputable moving company that actually tours your home. Have a representative from the moving company come to the home and to a thorough survey of what’s to be moved and have them give you an accurate estimate. Your upfront work will be worth it in the long run.
