No one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes. However, when it comes to your moving day, there are many different mistakes you can make. Unfortunately, these mistakes can cost you time, take a toll on you emotionally or make a move harder or more stressful than it already is. If you are planning a move in the near future, here are four common mistakes people make on moving day and how you can avoid them.


The number one mistake people make when it comes to their move is procrastinating. Moves need to be planned out ahead of time. You need to book a mover or a moving truck well ahead of your moving day. And you should start de-cluttering and packing up items that you don't use before your moving day. This helps to save time when the big day comes and ensures you are not rushing around to do what could have been done weeks earlier.

Not Having Enough Supplies

Another common mistake people make is not having enough supplies on hand. You will want to ensure you have enough moving boxes, bubble wrap, tape and markers to mark your boxes. The last thing you need is to stop moving and drive around town looking for more supplies.

Not Being Physically Ready

Moving takes a huge toll on your body. The night before you are moving, be sure to get plenty of sleep. And the day of your move, drink plenty of water and stop to eat and take regular breaks. Being sick or tired is not going to make the process any easier on you.

Failing to Find a Safe Place for Pets and Kids

The last mistake people make is forgetting about their kids or their pets. Kids and pets can get in the way on your moving day. If possible, find a sitter for them or a safe place for them to go. This helps to reduce their anxiety and is one less thing for you to watch over and worry about.
